An Evening In Orange

If you've tried to call us and haven't gotten an answer; if you've tried to book an appointment with us only to find there are few available time slots, if any; if you've stopped by the studio and it's been an absolute chaos of flowers, buckets, designers, and heady fragrances in the last week, blame it on the magnificent event we were a part of this past Saturday on January 16.

Lisa was honored when, several months ago, the Chair of the event, Christy Phillips, came and asked us to jump aboard... for An Evening in Orange. The 3rd annual auction/event raised proceeds for the region's first dedicated heart hospital at the University of Tennessee Medical Center and was definitely a night to remember. Months ago, Lisa began planning for a transformation to take place at Cherokee Country Club, where An Evening In Orange was held. Our job, along with All Occasions Party Rentals and the team at Bandit Lites, was to take every room in the club from elegant and plush to amazing and breath-taking. We like to think we achieved our goal! Take a look at some of our creations.

The evening definitely presented a challenge for our team (as we had our hand in almost every room!), but as always, they took it in stride and every leaf was in place by the time the first guests stepped through the door.

We feel so grateful to have taken part in not only an enchanted evening, but one that supported a very worthy cause. We want to send our appreciation out to everyone who participated in An Evening In Orange, including those who helped our designs shine with the most amazing linens, lights, and decor. We're looking forward to next year!

Open House

Last night, Lisa, and three other members of our team headed over to Hunter Valley Farm for our second appearance at an Open House they have begun to put on quite regularly. The beautiful, earthy pavilion over-looking the pristine (and freezing!) lake, was filled with all types of wedding vendors - Caterer's, Photo booth's, DJ's, Linen Rental companies, and of course, Floral Design! Here is a shot of the front of our table that guests saw when they arrived.



Our station was unique and showcased our custom designs as well our flexibility and willingness to create whatever a bride may choose. We had colorful, crystal-studded designs; stargazer lilies with a hot pink criss-cross wrap; a blue iris, handmade galex rose bouquet, all the way down to a traditional, elegant, all-white bouquet with our twist on the hand-tied wrap. Guest's enjoyed flipping through the many photographer books we brought, full of weddings we've helped create, as well as commenting on the amazing creation Lisa designed for the centerpiece and focal point of our table.










Another highlight of the evening was displaying our new line of merchandise Lisa just found in Atlanta! We are thrilled about all the lush, adorable bridal accessories that now fill our shelves! We have all kinds of perfect gifts for the bride, bridesmaids, and mothers of the bride and groom. Our coziest finds were some beautiful robes that can be monogrammed with whatever you choose. There are also luggage tags, totes, pictures frames, and so much more.




We had a wonderful time chatting with brides-to-be and their groom's, setting appointments, and discussing wedding plans with bride's who've already booked us for their big day.

We're looking forward to seeing you soon too! Drop by the shop to find an ideal gift for Valentine's, the bride-to-be, or (because sometimes you just have to treat you), yourself!
