In the Rear View Mirror

Wow! Looking in the rear view mirror, February was a very busy month! Now this picture was actually taken in December when we did not have ice and my truck was acting crazy, but February did have snow and ice. February started out with my 4 year shop anniversary and ended with lots of burlap and lace wedding bouquets shipped out to brides across the world! 

There was rustic red, white, and navy blue bouquets,

and boutonnieres.

I loved these bridesmaid bouquets - A single sunflower, surrounded by burlap roses.

I've made three of these burlap wreaths this month and delivered them all locally. Two of them were placed on an easel and delivered to the funeral home, with the families having a wreath to take home after the service.

I also delivered this set of Mason Jar Lights to a bride to be, to use as decorations for her wedding next week.

A rustic red and shades of brown comprised these bouquets. This wedding is going to have a Crawfish Boil theme!

these bridesmaid bouquets. The bridesmaids are wearing teal and the bride wanted to make sure her bouquets didn't clash with the dresses and would stand out.

This color scheme was also used on the mother's wrist corsages. many times, the mother of the bride and groom don't pick out there dress till a week or so before the wedding, so the neutral colors are less likely to clash with her dress.

The navy bouquet is en route to Italy now.

Jade and Coral is always a pretty, springy combo!

And then I got my dress form! To say that I love it, is an understatement. I'm so excited about the photo opportunities with the form and the vintage lace wedding dress. Delaney ordered more pieces to match her previous order, including a bridesmaid bouquet, 3 boutonnieres and a corsage in turquoise and yellow.
Lavender and purple has became popular this month and March will include several bouquets in the color scheme. These purple bouquets are on an International flight for Petra's Canadian wedding later this year.

Last, but not least, the ever popular turquoise bouquet. Isn't my girl pretty sitting there in the glamper? :)

I've probably missed a few pictures...
 I'm so thankful for everyone who has ordered from me and keeping me busy! I appreciate each and everyone's order, large or small. I send my best wishes out to everyone as they are preparing for the wedding day or to the one's who are mourning the loss of a loved one, I send my sympathies. 

I look forward to helping future bride's prepare for one of the most special days of their lives. If there is any way I can help you, please let me know, You can contact me through email or on etsy and we can discuss your ideas and needs.

  1. If I had to choose a favorite, I don't think I could. I love all of them! I've told you this before, but I am in awe of how far you've come since we met on our blogs. You're making so many people happy, Janice! You're everywhere, the United States, Canada and abroad! Wow. You're amazing!


    1. Thanks for always being a great supporter of me and my blog Ms Sally! This place has come along way, hasn't it?

  2. You have been a very busy lady! Everything is beautiful, but I'm partial to the sunflowers. I suppose just because they are uncommon.
