Our DIY project of the week. We re-potted all of our succulents from the bridal show at the Dayton Convention Center. We used old-recycled votive candle holders and we used cactus potting soil. This would be a great little favor or place card holder! So Cute!
Ever since the first day of “Pinterest” the day of a traditional bridal bouquet went to the way side. Now brides are bringing their I Pad and showing us their Pinterest page or their wedding website with all of their weddings inspirations, ideas and images. This bouquet was inspired by your traditional 3 dozen rose bridal bouquet. The new twist – Not doing 3 dozen roses 😉 This beautiful bouquet is vintage in style, romantic in texture and monochromatic in color. The flowers in this beautiful bridal bouquet are David Austin Garden Roses, Ranuculas and Bouvardia, all in shades of magenta/hot pink. Photo credit: Blink of and Eye Photography, Oakwood Ohio.
