Fun With Fruit

Tooling around the Epicurious website last week, I ran in to bouquets for foodies and had to take a peek! Though I'm not entirely sold on asparagus in my nosegay or blackberries near a pristine white gown, I have to admit that kumquats look adorable next to roses, and I'm a sucker for a sheaf of wheat. Here are some of my favorites:

Beautiful pinks and purples with a Pomegranate

A lovely sheaf of wheat-- I know my AOII sisters will love this!

Kumquats-- my favorite!

Sage, basil, thyme, rosemary, parsley, pineapple mint, and lavender-- the ultimate nosegay!

I absolutely love this idea and can't wait to try it out! For more bouquets, head on over to "Bridal Bouquets for Food Lovers" and see some other amazing creations!

I've been trying to get off my butt for a while and get an *actual* website going for this business. It's growing slowly but surely and the site will provide you, my dear potential customers, with a better way to get in touch with me and see my projects. Part of my hiatus here has been working on that site, and I'm so happy to present...

My friend Holly has held my hand through this, and I'm so excited this is off the ground! Wordpress has been so easy to work with, and in the coming weeks I look forward to putting up contracts, surveys, and other paperwork for potential clients to view.

Picking Right Up

Well kids, real life has gotten in the way once again! My "real" job is running a child care facility and heading in to full day camp for the summer has been a doozy! Thankfully, after next week, life will be a little easier and I can start keeping everyone entertained again... That being said, let's pick up where I left off!

My last Markdown Monday (which is quickly turning in to DIY Monday) talked about submerged flowers in water. I still haven't had a chance to hit up the dollar store or anywhere else with silk flowers, but I *did* remember that for Lauren and Todd's wedding we did something similar for the centerpiece so here's a glimpse of the real thing until I can get you something fake ;)

For this one, we used the fun little water beads, which looked amazing with the lit candles! And the flowers stayed fresh and happy all night.

Lauren + Todd

Two months ago, Lauren and Todd got married on a beautiful St. Patrick's day! Agape Events was so proud to be able to coordinate this beautiful wedding-- Lauren and Todd are a wonderful couple and it was a pleasure to work with them and their families. It was also our first professional collaboration with partners in crime, Everything Nice Photography!

Good luck to the happy couple, and thanks for letting us be part of your big day!
