This Week in the Burlap Factory

Wedding season is in full swing and it's been a busy week in the work shop or the "burlap factory" as it's also known around here. I think the fireworks this weekend were actually celebrating the fact that I had finished this order Saturday afternoon! ;) heehee! It took me most of last week to make everything and was happy to ship them to an excited and nice bride to be today. Breanne's colors for her summer 2016 wedding are Bahama turquoise, tan, brown, white and just a splash of dark plum burlap, along with white lace.

Here's a few other custom orders I have been working on recently -

This navy order shows the 3 main sizes of bouquets I make. The bride chose a small toss bouquet, medium matron of honor arrangement and full size bridal bouquet for her fall wedding.

This order will be shipping out Wednesday with teal (jade), black and tan burlap rose and white lace for a wedding next week! If at all possible, I try my best to accommodate rush orders, pending I have the supplies on hand and not booked with other rush orders.

This album is on it's way to Hawaii and marks the 46th state that I have shipped to! At this point, I'm kind of like kids on vacation, playing the license plate game and looking forward to crossing those last four states off my list!

I'm already working towards some fall pieces and sketching out some Christmas ideas, so stay tuned for some new stuff coming soon. So that's what's been happening in the shop. Hope y'all are all having a wonderful summer!
