Hope everyone is enjoying their Christmas with family and friends and your dear loved ones!
Well now that the turkey is cooking in the oven I have time to update my blog!
This is the first time making a kissing ball. I used feijoa leaves instead of mistletoe as they are a bit pricy but I think it came out pretty nicely.
The wreath was sent out for delivery yesterday, just in time for Christmas. I made the same base as the wreath lesson a few days ago, cypress, cedar and blue ice, and added a bit more florals and ornaments.
Christmas is just around the corner! All decorations up and we are ready for all the fun!
While I love the traditional red green and white festive colors, this year, I wanted something more of a “winter-wonderland” look. So I went with silver, champagne gold and a hint of light blue, then paired them up with mercury accessories to carry out the sparkle & shine of the holiday season.
The entrance was decorated in red to welcome the guests with warm, festive colors. The centerpiece I made at Paris-based floral decorator, Ms. Jun Hamamura’s, lesson really stands out and I love the way amarilys add so much glamour to the whole christmas décor. It has got to be my favorite flower this time of the year!
I had the pleasure of taking Ms. Jun Hamamura’s floral lesson last week. A floral decorator and floral coordinator/agent based out of Paris, Ms. Hamamura serves as the liaison between Japan and France in the floral industry. Her lesson, which captured every essence and spirit of the Parisian floral style, was nothing but inspirational! The colors and the mood of the florals and the foliage was oh-so-Paris that my mind was went wandering somewhere on La Rive Gauche as I worked on the pieces with overflowing spark. Those two days were blissfully priceless…
This blushing beauty, made of roses, dhalias, Nerine and a touch of callas was made for a bride who wanted “a macaron-colored bouquet, so sweet that it’ll make my heart melt.” Well, It certainly seemed to win her heart! So, what do you think? Does it make you swoon?
