Cascading Bouquets are coming back into style

I just love this bouquet. Bride's request in general way, Middle(wo)man: Me, I oversee the design as it should look. Executioner: Carlos Camara, a recent winner of Floral Design Competition in California.

Hot Lady Orbs on Crystal Candelabras

These pomanders were used here and moved to reception as centerpieces into 9" cylinders. See the sketch example from an earlier blog.

These hot pink / fuchsia color roses are called "Hot Lady." They are truly beautiful and the fragrance... is amazing.

The sketch below were aisle pomanders transported here as centerpieces but they weren't finished yet so I don't have pictures of them.

Elvis: Tribute to my Loving Cat

She was a loving companion for 18.5 years and she went to Cat Heaven on Monday September 28, 2009 at the ripe age of 19 years & 1 month, exact birth date unknown.

She came into my life because her 1st owner had too many DUI's & went to jail. I thought I would take care of her until she served her time in 6 months but Elvis won my heart in 2 weeks. In the beginning she was not a lap cat & kept her distance but soon we were inseparable. In her later years she slept on my chest.

How could I not love her! All these are recent digital camera pictures. I need to go find her baby pictures somewhere...

In the winter she grew heavier & thicker coat, signs of wild mix but she was gentle, loving, & playful.

She did not like my room mate's cat on her bed but she tolerated it... what a good kitty!
