Vintage Charm

What a great couple Angela and Tim were. I had such a good time working with them.  Angela was such an organized bride and made my job soooo easy.  The colors were eggplant and champagne with floral accents in shades of white and green.  Angela loved succulents and wanted a very earthy yet rustic and charming feel for the decor.  We grouped floral centerpieces in 3's and used vintage mercury glass vessels along with birch branch sleeves to complete the look.  A special thank you to the very talented Allyson Magda for these beautiful photos.  Allyson and her assistant, Jill, were great to work with.  Floral designed and arranged by ALLURE (yep, that's me!).  Take a peek..

Tiny tots with their eyes ALL aglow...

Much of the time I try to keep my family separate from my work, but this is just one of those times I have to share the love.  These are my girls:  Lauren (10, going on 16), Hannah (7), and little Gracie (3, we call her GiGi). These photos were from a shoot  the very talented Ashley Blake, of A. Blake Photography did for us over the holiday. She's so gifted and such a sweet person.  Thank you Ashley!

Merry Christmas to all....

I can hardly believe Christmas has come and gone.  It is so bittersweet for me. I love the rush of the holidays:  the baking of peppermint and chocolate ganache dipped sugar cookies (yep, it's true!), watching my children open all their presents and seeing the pure enjoyment in their eyes, and the endless flow of champagne while visiting with my closest friends.  I hope all of you enjoyed the holidays as much as I did.  

Here are a few photos of some holiday floral I did for a fantastic Christmas party for some friends.
