Bridal Show

So if you don't know by now, I work at The Canterbury Place in Bountiful as an assistant florist. Saturday, January 16th was their annual Bridal Show, and the theme for this year was "Vintage Chic." It took a ton of prep work, including making about 30 paper pinwheels (seen on the chair ties below). I think my fingers were numb for a few hours from folding them! As far as flowers go, we worked until midnight the night before the show finishing them, but they turned out amazing! I was in love! Each table had a different centerpiece and the round buffet in the center had a HUGE arrangment of peonies, dahlias, anenomies, garden roses, queen anne's lace, and blooming branches. Stacie, the head florist, said it was probably the most expensive arrangement she's ever done. Here's some pictures for you to feast your eyes on....

One of the mock bouquets I made. It's made of calla lilies, parrot tulips, hypericum berries, and scabiosa pods.

The AMAZING cake made by Layers.

The entire ceiling was swagged and in the center hung tissue poms

All the chairs had different ties, this one shows the pinwheels I spent FOREVER making
