Brooklyn's Dumbo Loft Wedding

We had a fantastic time working with Victoria and Amy on their amazing and touching wedding at the Dumbo Loft space in Brooklyn.

The venue was wonderful, and it provided the perfect backdrop for the silver and purple wedding color scheme.

We were able to come up with a fantastic design to work with the space, and take advantage of the ceremony area transformation to a dance floor space by adding globe lights and "chains" of flowers suspended overhead.

Bridal bouquet featuring purple roses, anemonies, succulents, lavender, salvia and blue thistle. Accented with silvery eucaliptus and wrapped in brown raffia ribbon. 

Bridal bouquet featuring purple roses, anemonies, lithianthus. As well as orange ronoconulous, dhalias, rose hip, spray roses. Accented with silvery green grass pods and lambs ears. Wrapped in green raffia ribbon.

Lapel arrangements featuring spray roses, purple lavender and purple mini peppers. 

Centerpiece in birch bark container, featuring roses, hydrangea, lithianthus, thistle, phlox, lavender, and grass pods. 

Closeup of the centerpiece. 

Bar menu sign showcasing the menu of the wine, beer and cocktails. We also printed the custom ceremony program designed as a flip-up booklet.

The wedding cake was a chocolate and chocolate gnash cake covered in butter cream and dark chocolate drizzled on top. 

We had a wonderful time working with the brides and at the Dumbo Loft venue. More photos coming soon!

Birch...birch...oh yeah!

This fall will be a birch filled wedding season...and in preparation, I've been running around the woods of New Hampshire searching out spectacular pieces of this great tree, and check out this GIANT piece of birch!

Can't wait to use them in our next couple of weddings!

Deep Tones and Figs

Here are a few more snaps of a gorgeous centerpiece filled with deep toned flowers and figs that were growing in my backyard. 

The flowers include: burgundy dahlias, merlot rononculous, yellow billy buttons, figs on branch, grass seed pods, blue thistle, pomegranates on branch, white blooming sedum, red amaranth, rosemary and eucalyptus greenery...among others.

For the photos we also used a cool vintage Du Pont Electric Blasting Caps box I purchased at a NH flea marked a few months ago. It came lined with a few pages from a 1920s newspaper. Love this box!

Silk flower wreaths...vacation time!

Besides real flowers, we love to also make silk flower wreaths...especially for amazing Julia, who took nine of them on a birthday vacation to Mexico, one for each friend. 

Each wreath was different, and most featured bright tropical flowers.

What a fun idea, right?!

Can't wait to hear what a fun time she had sporting the wreaths around town!



I had a blast working on a birthday cake for a huge Chanel enthusiast...and figured that it would be a wild surprise for the birthday girl to cut into her cake....and expose the Chanel logo on the inside!

I started it out by making a cookie cutter in the shape of the two "C's". Then I baked the requested carrot cake and a small vanilla cake (for the inside filling).

Then I used the cookie cutter to remove the logo from the carrot cake, and replace it with the cut out from the vanilla cake. Repeated this fun profess a few times, and stacked each layer side by side...therefore ensuring that each cake slice would have the fun logo!

And here is how it came out!

I was too excited that I forgot to take a picture of what the cake looked like before it was cut!

How much fun is this logo inside the cake though!?

Can't wait for the next fun cake opportunity!

Deep toned bouquet...and gold wire!

Check out this beauty bouquet!

Instead of a traditional ribbon tie, we used gold-toned wire! How fun, right? 
Besides looking good...it is fun to hold!

More pictures to come soon!
