The clients are amazing and were absolutely blown away at our sample this past Thursday night.
The bride is lucky enough to have a very talented and gracious cousin that is a very talented floral designer, Mary of Ciao Bella! flowers in NYC is going to create the stunning centerpieces you see here from the sample this past week.
We decided on a damask theme with hot hues of red/hot pink OVER A YEAR AGO. And I say that with passion as last year the "damask overload" was non-existant. This year you can't open a magazine, or look at a blog without seeing some sort of damask in the design. We tiptoed on the cusp of the craze 3 years ago at our (now apparently famous) Wedding Central Episode at The Liberty House where Robin K created an amazing brown/cream damask look that we ran with for all design elements.
So then after I saw it popping up everywhere (and not always very creatively) I got concerned that our gorgeous design would become old news before we could even say Happy New Year!
So Mary, Sharon and I got together to really try to blow the doors off the damask you've seen in the past year. We really want to wow everyone and make this the be-all-end-all of damask designs. It is still a work in progress BUT we had to share. So excited
Thanks again to Mary for such a beautiful sample!
