Wedding Bouquets

Wow! The end of February is coming up so quickly!

Yesterday, I figured out that I have 2 months of my college career left to go. Yikes! I'm so excited to graduate, but completely clueless as to what to do afterwards. I'll DEFINITELY be working much more on my cards, flower, and art, and I'll also be looking for a few places to sell on a regular basis. But for now ... some updates!

During Christmas break I worked on wedding invitations and the wedding party bouquets for a good friend of mine from freshman year. Her colors are a bright electric blue and a clover green (although the greens vary throughout). She adores butterflies, so those are everywhere.

These were the first invitations I've had the pleasure of making, and I think they came out pretty good for my first time. I made the tri-fold card, then had a template that would cut out the pocket for the rsvp card.

She also gave me the opportunity to take my flower making to a new level, and asked me to make her bouquet (and the bridesmaid's bouquets, and the boutonnieres). She asked me months before I needed to even start planning, but I had plans in my mind minutes later. This is the bridal bouquet (made with white spiral roses, and forget-me-nots which she personally requested).

I'm hoping to add custom wedding bouquets to my shop this summer. It was so much fun to make all of these. And the best part is I get to keep one since I'm a bridesmaid!
