Junior League Winter Dreams Tour of Homes 2011

Our friends at Magnolia Gardens invited us to decorate the Sun Room for the Junior League 'Winter Dreams' Tour of Homes.  

Spread a little JOY with button mums.

Our Floral Puppy was quite a hit.

All of our tables were decorated with fresh flowers.
This table included rose-bud 'ornaments and floral 'packages.'

Baby's Breath and vintage wrapped packaged ... with a little JOY.

The historic, and working' well in the Sun Room
was decorated with a custom silver pine cone wreath.
Next to the well stood a table filled with  mercury glass,
white flowers, Christmas foliage and candles.  
PS-we're still taking orders for Christmas arrangements.

Linens were provided by InTents Party Rentals.

Vintage Autumn Wedding

This bride chose soft, romantic colors for her October wedding.  The pallet included shades of peach, plum, ivory, and golds.  

The best part of the wedding was the surprise bouquet party where each of the attendants created their own bouquet using flowers picked by the bride.  As you can see, they had a great time!

Ceremony Location: Central United Methodist Church
Reception Location: UArk Ballroom

Carnations and Baby's you've never seen them like this!

I'm in love with carnations this year!  Earlier this month we worked with a bride from Texas on this white and green wedding.  The combination of Dendrobium Orchids, Baby's Breath, Bear Grass and Carnations turned out beautifully.  Check out the foliage 'bows' we created for the ceremony and reception, as well.  

Reception Location: Bella Vista Country Club

What the bride had to say: You will never go wrong using Rose of Sharon! Althea went above and beyond and made our ceremony absolutely beautiful! We had rave reviews on our decorations of the chapel, of the reception at the Bella Vista, Country Club, of the bouquets, boutonnieres and all the flowers. Aletha even went above and beyond and delivered candles to the reception that got lost in the shuffle! The wedding party told me how friendly and helpful she was, even making a boutonniere for someone she thought should have one! We can't brag big enough on Rose of Sharon!!!! We recommend them to all!!!!

Carnations in August

One of our August weddings was all about Carnations.  We used shades of peach carnations accented with peach Hypericum Berries for all the personal flowers.

Carnations are a wonderful flower for the hot summer months.  They hold up well in the heat and they are quite beautiful.  Take a look...
