Hot like a Glue Gun

Ok, I admit this is not a clearly wedding or flower-related post, but... since I'm feeling pretty giddy that it's Saturday and I am already back from delivering this weekend's wedding AND this is the funniest thing I've seen in ages.. I'm posting it anyway. Don't be afraid, just enjoy the absolute hilarity of your fellow humans. Thank you to Alicia Hanson, fellow Craft Mafia member for sending it to me and I promise to compensate by posting pretty flower photos on Monday, I promise!

Green Premier Party

St. Patrick's Day, the greenest day of the year is manana and what better way to celebrate than with a doubly green party! This is San Diego's first green event planning vendor showcase!
Come see what Rae Florae can do with live plants and locally grown, sustainable flora! Among all the other cool things that will be going on... :)

The Green Premier Party 2009 is an evening of eco-friendly food and fun at the hottest new venue in town, The New Children's Museum and brought to you by Plan It Green.
Amazing organic & local cuisine will surround you all evening, compliments of ChileCo Catering, ECO Caters, Waters Fine Catering, Urban Kitchen Catering and Culinary Concepts.
A well stocked bar offered by Best Beverage Catering will include a selection of wines donated from Prince Of Wine who will be at the event to tell you about their special wine selections. Also, our downtown Omni Hotel has generously offered us an additional selection of wines to please a wide variety of tastes. We even have Joe's On The Nose offering you an Organic Espresso Bar to give you that lift for the evening.
Our charismatic DJ, Jerry Beck from Beck's Entertainment will be keeping us in the mood with his collection of ambient tunes emulating from the lower level of The Museum.
Of course, no event would be complete without the d├ęcor! The New Children's Museum will be decked out inside using battery operated LED lights from Beck's Entertainment, linen and lounge furniture rentals compliments of Concepts Event Design and eco-friendly floral design by Embellishmint Floral & Event Design Studio and Rae Florae.
Our vendor showcase on the 3rd level of The Museum will include a collection of eco-friendly vendors from Earth Friendly Apparel Co, Angel Printing, Wherever Shuttle (100% vegetable oil driven limo and shuttle service will be on display outside), Pulse Staging (providing exterior lighting powered by a solar generator along with our digital signage), REC Solar and more.
We are also excited to have a very talented local artist, Chris Martino that will have his work on display as well as be painting on used surfboards.
Lastly, but very important to mention, we have Zero Waste San Diego organizing and executing our zero waste management solution.

Break out your best organic clover and join us in making our St. Patrick's Day 2009 celebration the greenest ever!

Fresh Fruit

Now I know I've posted about Laura and Zach numerous times, but I just received their professional images taken by Michelle Zuniga's Studio Z and they are too gorgeous not to post! Thank you for taking such dreamy photos!

Isn't this just so yummy!!! Creamy yellow roses, bright white stock, orange mokara orchids, baby green hydrangea, and miniature calla lilies in pink and mango orange.

Soft sage green dresses make those bouquets pop! Orange roses and orchids, pink callas, green hydrangea and touches of periwinkle statice.

Such a great table shot- love the matching green favor boxes and chocolate linens...

Sliced limes, hydrangea, mokara orchids, orange dahlias, white and green alstoemeria, with more purple statice and stock.

Couldn't forget the cake! Circus roses and kermit mums on lime and pale sage green icing like only the ladies at Sweet Cheeks could do!!

Purple & Passiflora

Molly & Jacob had one color on the brain...

Her bouquet of purple and ivory roses, cymbidium orchids, and dendrobium orchids in every shade from blushed to veined to deep grape purple, silver wire accents and pearls dotted the roses, and silver ribbon to wrap.

Groomsmen boutonnieres of exotic orchids and ivy wrapped in silver ribbon.

Petals of ivory blending into purple, leading to the..

Chuppah draped in soft white sheer fabric, passion vine entwining the poles, orchid sprays at the tops, petals and orchid blooms dotting the ground.

Sweetheart Table treats of silver crystals, black river rocks, silver and black wire, and of course more purple roses and orchids.
