Dang- Bold indigo and orange gets a look!!

Margo & Stephen are such a lovely couple and I have to say a major thank you to Eddie Bojorquez of Studio 512 for the stunning bouquet shots! The bridal bouquet was long and slender, which is a nice change of pace and a perfect style for showcasing those calla lilies, delphinium, orange star-of-bethlehem, lisianthus, and scabiosa. Quaint and colorful setting as always, The Thursday Club in Point Loma, was hoppin' on Saturday night for the newlyweds!

Cute little belly bar arrangements of blue delphinium in silver squares

Ahh, the cake- sugared grapes from Sweet Cheeks Baking Co. and fresh dahlias, lisianthus, delph bl0oms, surrounded by cobalt bottles and single stems of blue agapanthus

Wish I said it first!

"I'm an insatiable flower floozie... I'm always in love with a new plant. Well, I love to be in love and if you can't have a new boyfriend every week, you can have a new flower to love."

So says Annie Hayes, proprietress of Annie's Annuals and woman after my own heart! Annie's Annuals is THE source for seeds of any flower worth growing. Located right here in California, up in Richmond, the wholesale/retail operation offers native plants, hard-to-find plants, newly cultivated plants, and plants you don't even know you want yet. Don't be deceived by the solid green appearance of her nursery, should you get to visit. Annie's Annuals prefers you get to enjoy the entire blooming season of your new purchase, so you buy plantets not yet in the flowering stage. Her website is ultra organized and very informative; I highly recommend it for those with a spot of land, a desire to be pleasantly surprised, and not a clue what grows in sun vs. shade.

Signature Studios Throws Open its Doors

Brett Charles Rose & Darryn St. John are the talented duo behind Signature Studios located in Old Town. Couldn't ask for a better spot- killer sunset view, neighbors include Fred's Mexican Cafe and the (supposedly haunted oooh) Whaley House. Each photographer carries his individual style and resume, yet combine their forces for what they hope will be an ever expanding studio. Anyhow, a good time was had by all as we talked weddings, travel, photo shop and enjoyed delectable mango margaritas. I had a great time coming up with the flowers, so thank you over and over again for the satisfied compliments.

oh the fun you can have with succulents, cymbidiums, and berzilia!

Who doesn't like to support a bunch of people running in white Elvis suits with enough studded rhinestones to be dangerous without sunglasses?
We were happy to participate in the Rock-n-Roll Marathon's Health Expo on Friday and Saturday in conjunction with EcoCaters. Offering all organic catering and locally grown sustainable flower arrangements seems a match made in health heaven, goodies for your tummy and your happy well-being.
