Rose of the week

 SWEETNESS “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” We are starting a “Rose of the week post.” Each rose is grown from its individual grower/farm somewhere in the world.  Roses are grown in California, Equador and many more countrys and states.  Each has its own unique name, style and smell. This rose, for instance is called “Sweetness.” It is conisdered a white-ish rose with a hot pink edge. The edge isnt consistant from one rose to the next, but I think that is what makes it unique. It isnt a large head rose; it has around 25 petals per stem. That is a standard size rose in the floral industry. It has a very sweet (no pun intended) smell, but its not overwhelming. This color is perfect for the bride that wants just a hint of her color in her bouquet, using the hot pink as an accent, of course

What does Your Dream Day Cafe look like?

This is the front reception lobby.  To the left is two tables with mock reception style decor and of course, fresh flowers from Floral V Designs 🙂  Also, we have a beautiful Kenneth Pool gown from Bridal and Formal in Cincinnati.  As well as a large TV always rolling with our most current wedding video. This is our second consultation room, set up for any vendor to use as a meeting point.  Dressed with Prime Time Party Rental linens and another one of Bridal and Formal’s beautiful dresses. Consultation room one is more of a lounge style meeting space.  With leather couches and chairs as well as a large screen TV available to watch our vendors most current DVD’s.  Also, another one of Bridal and Formals beautiful gowns. This is our “Pinterest” board, for vendors to pin what inspires them.  We love “pinning” but we also like to touch and feel, so we made this 🙂 This is our vendor resource area.  This is where brides can get all of the top vendors information in the Dayton and Cincinnati area. This is Bridal and Formals display, the dresses will be rotating every other week. The front lobby area will have cake samples each day from our participating bakeries….ymmm! Anyways, that’s it in a nut shell.  Come and visit Your Dream Day Cafe, and see my office 😆 2308 Far Hills Ave.  Oakwood, Ohio 45419 Monday – Thursday 12-8 pm Friday and Saturday 12-4 All other hours by appointment only Thank you Sarah Babcock Studio for your beautiful pictures check her out at Want to learn more about Your Dream Day Cafe?  Visit the website

Randy Fenoli from Say Yes To The Dress – Bouquets!

We are so honored have worked with Randy Fenoli from “Say Yes To The Dress” last Saturday at Bridal and Formal in Cincinnati, Ohio. Randy Fenoli is the Fashion Director for Kleinfeld Bridal in New York City. He was born in Mt. Vernon, Illinois, and grew up with a love of fashion. He began sewing dresses when he was only nine years old. When he got older, he branched out into the areas of make-up artistry, hair styling and entertainment. He then enrolled with the New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology. Later, he was offered a job working for Vivian Dessy Diamond, of the Vivian Diamond company. He was then offered a job at Kleinfeld and has been there ever since. “Say Yes to the Dress” is a TLC reality series which follows events at Kleinfeld Bridal in New York City. The series shows the progress of individual sales associates, managers, and fitters at the store, along with profiling brides as they search for the perfect wedding dress. First, here’s a close up of bouquet we made for Randy’s appearance at Bridal and Formal in Cincinnati. It is a hand tied bouquet of 4 dozen Hot Eskimo, light pink roses wrapped in ivory pearls.   Second is a hand tied bouquet of flame mini calla lilies, fall grasses, dark red hypericum berries and sunset safari, all wrapped in chocolate satin ribbon wrapped again in copper wire. And third is a hand tied bouquet of dark purple stock, dark purple lisatnhus, lavender snapdragons, light blue delphinum, and blue cornflower wrapped in burlap with a jute crisscross.
