With New Year’s Eve fast approaching, we decided to put together a little tabletop inspiration shoot for those of you planning to celebrate at home this year. I decided on two different looks – the first, a hollywood glam look in gold, black and pink; the second, a more natural look in cork, spruce and silver. My sweet friend Sally of La Happy created  the paper goods and stunning calligraphy and the lovely Kate Price took these images. Check back tomorrow for the natural tabletop look!

Mother’s Day weekend is always madness for any florist, but we had two large events as well so I’m sure you can imagine what it was like around here! I’m still waiting to see Angela and Evan‘s pictures from the wedding, but yesterday Michael Rowley sent me some images of the MS Dinner of Champions Gala. I always love to see the professional shots and Michael’s are particularly gorgeous.


This year’s honoree owns a couture vintage clothing store so Allison (the NW MS Society’s fabulous event coordinator) and I wanted the event to have a very feminine, glamorous look with satin linens in gold, pink and taupe, gold chiviari chairs and urns of pink, lilac and grey flowers. Noting the Enlighten theme to this year’s event, Glassybaby donated blue glassybabies for all the tables and entertainment included a fashion show. I love how it turned out!

Flowers for the bars and registration tables were designed on white candlestick bases and had a loose, playful feel. We used garden roses, hydrangea, ranunculus, dusty miller, leucandendron and wild pink honeysuckle in the arrangements.
