May and peonies are one of my favorite times of the year. These light spring colors of whites, pinks and hints of green are just simple yet incredibly elegant. Our new peony etched vases are quite stunning.

Guests dined at long tables on the second floor of Jen and Mitch Prensky’s south street restaurant – Supper. The food was fabulous  as was the décor. Caramel, white and green colors with a distinct modern style. The downstairs area became “Club Supper” with white couches, cow skin rugs, fun lighting and fish bowls filed with orchids and beta fish (yes! live fish, which the wait staff took home at the end of the evening!)

Dear Melissa,

There aren’t enough adjectives to describe how incredible my wedding was.  You took my vision and turned it into reality…but better!!! I couldn’t have dreamed that everthing would turn out the way it did.  The centerpieces were phenomenal. The assortment of flowers,  the candleabras, compotes and candles was esquisite. My bridesmaids bouquets were beyond AMAZING.  My bouquet was perfection.  Some responses from our guests included “Wedding of the Century” & “Fairytale Wedding”.  Everyone keeps talking about the flowers and decor.  The fabric circles in the trees were awesome! I could not be happier.  I am over the moon over the beauty of my wedding and it is all thanks to you.  You are awesome and I only wish I had more events to hire you for! Again, thank you for EVERYTHING!

There is nothing better than sunflowers to cheer up an outdoor party. Paired with wooden box containers and some moss, they are the perfect picnic arrangement.

We have been lucky enough to create incredible, one of a kind weddings at Woolverton Inn in Stockton, New Jersey over the past 7 years. The location is just perfect for a country feel yet we have added a lot of elegance to the atmosphere. This most recent June wedding involved fabulous colors and detail. The black and white damask runners gave a pop and uniformity to the table while the raspberry sherbet silk chair bows added a simple but stunning detail. The black candelabras fit right in  while the crystal candelabras added some height and sophistication to the tent. Draped tent poles, pin spot lighting, a personalized gobo and bright shades of raspberry flowers finished the look. It was simply gorgeous.

The flowers were amazing. Absolutely beautiful! Thank you so much. I was able to pass out lots of them and I still have so many at home and am enjoying them! I will be sure to refer you when I have the opportunity. Thank you for everything!

Christening luncheon

It was a gorgeous afternoon for a lovely luncheon to celebrate a momentous occasion. The tables were covered in a custom green satin ribbon linen, chair covers and cushions to match. The peony etched vases were filled with peonies that were blooming perfectly. A small bud vase with a white ranunculus was at each place. The final details to the table were befitting; oval menus with hand painted peony watermark, pink satin napkins and green checked placecards. It was stunning.
