Favor Sized Soaps Hit the Scene: Isn't everything better in miniature?

These favor sized soaps are headed to the first ever meeting of the Ann Arbor Association of Bridal Consultants. I am so sad that I can not be there Tuesday night but so happy that I will be in sunny Florida working on my tan just in time for wedding season.

The New Perks of our Shared Space

sweet pea floral design ann arbor wedding consultants, photographer, office space, vintage dresser, vintage tea set, fiesta ware, treasure mart, arbor brewing co, washington st.
I love sharing a consult office with Nicole Ladonne Blair (Local Ann Arbor Photographer) and Courtney McDonald (Owner of Petals Planning Co).  Both ladies are delightful company and talented wedding industry veterans.  Our loft office at 116 Washington is seeing more and more sunlight pour through as spring approaches.  The loft space is right above Arbor Brewing Co. (a constant temptation) and right across the street from a parking structure (so convenient).  This week we added some coffee flair to the scene and a vintage dresser ala treasure mart

Mid Winter Well Wish in Vintage Dish

These wintry wonderblooms are headed out the door as a get well soon from The University of Michigan Museum of Art staff who are a tight knit and very loving bunch.  The center of the anemone look like a teddy bears nose and make me want to give them Eskimo kisses.  The dusty miller are snugly too like micro suede  :)  The green is Dianthus and the Plum are Allium (related to the onion but not smelly like the onion).  Have a great weekend all!  ~Sweet Pea

Bridal Expo This Weekend and Happy Valentines Day!

I am so excited to be attending the Bridal Expo this weekend in Novi!  I am not an exhibitor but my fave photographer and friend Adam Czap is and I will be assisting.  Per request I designed this very big very pink fluffy thing that makes you want to take a running leap and land right in the middle.  I was very worried that my supplier would be out of pink so I went at 6am this morning and found mounds of hydrangea with my name on them.
