Fall Bridal Show

Southern Season participated in the Forever Bridal Show in Raleigh, NC last fall and I had a chance to do a quick photo shoot before taking the flowers over to the show!  I really love how everything turned out!  One of my favorite parts of wedding planning is floral design and creating beautiful tables and I could not be more happy that my work allows me this luxury.  I was going for whimsical with a bright and summery feel as so many brides that attend this show will be getting married in the spring and summer.

Floral used: Ranunculus, Garden Roses, Stock, Spray Roses

By using additional bud vases with more variance in height and number of flowers you could create something even more whimsical and carefree!


mad hatter tea party.

This past May we threw a sweet Mad Hatter Tea Party for a little girl’s 4th Birthday.  It was a fun little party with face painting, savory tea sandwiches and scones and some fun games.  For any Mad Hatter Tea party the decorations are always the largest focus and I think the ones Pamela Jean Designs did were fabulous.  This would be a very easy DIY party as most of the decorations were simple things that are more time consuming than anything else.  The photo booth props and hanging tea pots, keys, and clocks are print outs bought from Etsy and printed on bright color cardstock.  For the centerpieces we did a fun play on floral arrangements, we used simple Gerber daisies and greenery in foam with the polka dot windmill stuck in.  I loved how they turned out, so cute and playful.

I had a wedding going on the same day as this party so I didn’t get shots during the actual event but here are some decor shots for your viewing!
