the NOT WEDDING - this Sunday!

Whoa, this is going to be a busy week! I'm working on some great vintage chic designs for this weekend! Starting point: giant 5' tall birdcage centerpiece! Please come and check it out. You can save $10 on tickets if you enter the code ILOVEAO when you checkout online. It's so worth it - lots of great ideas, great vendors, drinks and fun! It's a funky twist on a bridal show. (bloom wouldn't do one of those boring booth ones)

Again! on the Southern Weddings blog!

Erica and Chet's fun wedding was recently featured on the Southern Weddings blog. Check it out here for part one. And here for part two.


Back to Reality

So - I'm back from Costa Rica and had the best time with the family! Here's a shot I took of the Arenal Volcano from our balcony. The sun is rising from behind it and we actually heard it rumble a few times!

The weather was crystal clear the first day and the rest of the trip the top was usually shrouded in clouds. We lucked out because we heard some people visit and never even see the volcano at all because of the clouds.

I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things...booked 5 new consultations for the first week of March. It's going to be a busy year!
If anyone wants tropical flowers for their wedding this year - I'm ready! I was definitely inspired while in Costa Rica. Ginger, heliconia, bird of paradise, anthurium, orchids and even poinsettia growing all over the place! Some of those photos to come soon!


Costa Rica

bloom is taking some much needed family time and heading down to Costa Rica for a few days! And with this weather - highs in the 40's and lows in the 20's - the warm sun will be heavenly.

We'll be exploring volcanos, hiking the rainforest, fishing and relaxing!!

It will be just what the mind and body need to get re-energized. And the flowers are supposed to be spectacular, too.

Stay warm and I'll be back in a few days!
