Wedding Bouquet and more...



What a busy weekend!
I reorganize part of my work space...Still a bit to do!
I completed a few orders...And I designed a bridal bouquet for the fabulous Lifestyle/Wedding photographer Jessica May...The colors are soft and romantic! I'll keep you posted when Jessica will share with me the photos! In the mean time, here are a few photos I took over the weekend...







I also came up with a new collection of Favor Boxes Embellishments:








and finally, I made samples of flowers for the fantastic Event Planner Erin Borges
The floral arrangement is to be 4 feet long by 5 inches wide...
I can't wait to see the table setting for this special event!

Getting Organize...

Happy Saturday everyone!
Any special plans you have for the weekend?

My weekend is going to be busy...other than having to complete a couple flower orders...I NEED to re-organize my work space!!! I can't see where I'm going anymore!!!

This is what part of my studio looked like a few months ago:
 Trust me...it sure don't look like that anymore!


I need to make a trip to Ikea and get another shelves unit like this one...and replace those plastic drawers with a big armoire...I'll keep you posted with photos once done!!!

For the physical part of organization I'm doing pretty good...Now I need to organize all the projects Dragonfly Expression have on the go at the moment...I'm paper and pen and  making "list" type of girl...but I need to get more efficient...I have to view on a daily basis where I'm going...do you have tips you'd like to share on how to get and STAY organize in the multitude of projects I'm working on? 
Any help would be welcome and appreciate...

Color Palette...Kelly Green and Plum...



Happy Saturday everyone!

Last weekend, a lovely bride-to-be inquired about my paper flowers and she had mentionned that her color palette was Kelly Green and Plum...I have to be honnest...
I needed to "google" the color Kelly Green...I wasn't sure what shade of green it was...
I'm not even sure how we call that shade in french either!
Anyway...when I saw all the beautiful photos with this great green I was so excited! 
I made flowers right away...and I think I'm falling in love with this rich color combination!
