We didd the florals for this sweet elopement style wedding for Jenny and Johnathan and their daughter Bella. The vibrant colors mixed with succulents turned out so dynamic and lovely. A definite favorite arrangement.Photography by The Why We Love

Remember the ombre ranunculus arrangement I shared a peak of a few months back. Well, they were for a super special birthday party. Miss Beckett turned 2 and my partner Beth and I threw her one grand coloring party. Beth is one creative mommy and her sweet littler girl Beckett will surly follow suit. You can see a great feature on Studio DIY or more images shot by Luke Pickerill over on his blog.
I adore this bride! Her and her handsome fiancé are just too cute for words. Their BIG Day is fast approaching and I can’t wait to get my hands on the design and floral. Stay tuned for images from their McCormick Ranch Wedding!

Danielle here! My mom and I are often thinking of new ways to be inspired and come up with fresh ways of creating beautiful floral arrangements. I love how inspiration can come from some of the most organic of thoughts or images and come to life through the artistry, color, movement, and texture of a floral arrangement. Earlier today I was drooling over some spring fashion trends and was completely drawn in by this article on Glamour.com. This color blocked ensemble by Sophie Theallet is a jaw dropper. Every color is so, so, so… perfect! I immediately remembered this gorgeous glassware Diana from Casa dePerrin was tweeting about yesterday via Instagram and my mind was in a whirl! Bundles of bold colored ranunculus in these ice blue glasses would be just so, so, so… perfect! Ideal for a colorful spring wedding, bridal brunch, or a thoughtful gift to a dear friend. I can’t wait for these lovelies to be in season!
I guess you could call me a collector of sorts:) I love fine things, always have. Antique china or fine linens to start. Textiles in all patterns in textures are borderline an obession. Even picking up unique vases, one of a kind glassware or special beer bottles now and then to fill with a fresh floral arrangement is like therapy to mee. All of these things bring a sense of nostalgia, and whimsy to any event. My daughter Danielle and a fellow designer friend of ours Beth O’Brien, can attest to my ever growing collection. Lucky for me it is a shared interest between the three of us.
Last year Beth and Danielle joined forces to create a sweet 1st birthday for Beth’s little Beckett. They climbed the rafters in the garage for the perfect textiles, scoured the cupboards for the ideal mixed set of china, and picked a pleasantly perfect set of glassware to build out their floral arrangements. There are many more photos to come of this special birthday, but for now, enjoy a sneak peek of a lovely day and a brief introduction to my ridiculously loved collection of fine things.
I love this amazing fabric chandelier Beth curated from her own textile collection. Such a wonderful piece to add to a children’s birthday party.
Though it may seem odd to have beer bottles used at a child’s birthday party… the truth is that Beckett’s daddy is quite the brew master. It was a fun idea to bring a little manliness to the clearly all girl party. The radiance of the green glass among all the pink and orange is just stunning.

Here are a few snaps of Tricia and Scott’s sweet wedding at Chevy Chase Country Club in Glendale, CA. We had some really strong unexpected rain so we brought the ceremony inside for a sweet fireside celebration. I loved the mix of white blooms with pops of yellow, and green. The deep blue center of the anemones coordinated so well with the Ralph Lauren navy paisley toppers. Classic beauty. You can find some wonderful photos by their photographer Jen Harris over on her blog

When someone says the word wildflowers you can’t help but envision a bright sunny day and rolling hillsides filled with vibrant yellows, oranges, purples, and greens. At least that is the vision that comes to my mind. The inspiration for this wildflower infused garden party was a little different. Imagine a misty evening infused with candle and market lights in a garden surrounded by wildflowers…. Can you envision it? Well, let me help you try.
This was the inspiration and location of Rachel and Loren’s beautiful garden reception. I can’t wait for you to see how it all came together. For now, enjoy your dreaming…
A little behind the scenes of me hard at work on location at the LA arboretum. Just adding the finishing touches to the brides bouquet before her first look. Here is a little sneak peek of Loren and Rachel’s gorgeous garden wedding.

Beth O’Brien is quite possibly one of my favorite people to work with. She brings a certain modern appeal mixed in with a classic charm to all of her design projects. This baby shower was an extra special project for her and I was honored that she wanted to team up and curate this sophisticated baby shower she was hosting. You can see how her inspiration from Pinterest came to life in this charming, intimate, gathering of friends.
With all the elegance and charm of a girls night out mixed in with the sentiment and sweetness of a baby shower; the simple palate of white, green, and pops of yellow for the floral arrangements were perfectly suited for the candlelit soiree.
