Wedding Dance

This is by far one of the best wedding dances I have come across on You Tube. I think I like it because they chose a great song that was very appropriate, and everyone was joining in on the fun and having a great time watching this nice treat given by the bride and groom. Now would I ever do a dance like this? I doubt it, now the only reason is because my husband would not be able to lift me off the ground like that, and seriously now, you know everyone will be expecting that grand finally. :)

These orchid floral pieces are just beautiful!!! If you are not a "floral person" which many brides are not. This is a beautiful idea to use as a centerpiece. Its clean, simple, modern and still has plenty of elegance. Plus you have these amazing floating candles to add a beautiful detail. There is not much more to say about this, just loving it!!

Dear Nancy,

Thanks to Nancy, I had the most beautiful flowers at an affordable price. I had no idea what my the bouquets were going to look like going into the meeting, and the results were magnificient. The flowers were fresh and lasted the whole day and beyond. Nancy's creations were works of art which I wish I could have kept forever.

I just wanted to say thank you sooooooooo much for everything. The flowers looked amazing! I loved my bouquet and the centerpieces were amazing. I can't thank you enough.

Pin spot lighting


These pinspot lights are perfect for centerpieces. If you are going to use these, we recomend you turn the lights out. Add LED up lights around the walls to illuminate the walls for a nice color wash. Elegant lighting is eveything if you want to enhance the reception area.

colors that compliment orange, Nancys picks

Posted by Picasa
Rule of thumb, always add at least a secondary color to your floral decor, unless of course you go with the classic all white or ivory look. Then that's totally OK. Even traditional all red bouquets should at least have two different shades of red (like the classy rose, black magic, black Bacarra, Charlene or Charlotte rose... to name a few)for a little contrast, especially for photo purposes. But for now, lets talk about the color orange. This is a very big and popular color this summer, and will last until the beginning of Winter. For summer, I like to see orange with fuscias, yellows, and greens. Fall weddings, I love to add more of a Merlot red type of flower, like burgundy Dahlias, black magic roses and burgundy mini calalilies. I also love to incorporate peach the and vandela, and/or pale pink roses. Another amazing rose that goes great with orange roses, is Leonida. One of my favorite roses to use with orange. Heck..incorporate them all together in your floral, to give it that warm and complete look, perfect for fall.( as shown in the picture below) Of course if you are set on only using orange flowers, try to use at least 3 different shades of orange roses or 3 different types of orange flowers. If you do this, you will see a difference in the centerpiece and appreciate the piece more, and not just see orange, trust me.  

When using orange flowers, I like to add a secondary color for the rest of the decor, to enhance the orange. Personally I'm not to crazy about orange on everything. I like to add really bright colors like, yellows, fuscias, lime greens, and Tiffany blue. For the fall, I like, chocolate, golds, champagne, peaches, deep reds, and sage greens.

Centerpiece of the summer

Everyone seems to love this classic, simple, clean centerpiece. Its a two piece which can be detached from the top (so that your guests may take the flowers home, without having to carry the vase.) The vase is rented out, and that is why this beautiful piece can be yours for only$65.00ea. The piece has white hydrangeas with two different color roses. Three of my brides this year went with the light, peaches, pinks and ivory roses. You may choose to have curly willow or white dendro orchids inside the water filled vase. If you are interested in ordering the centerpiece with the vase, The centerpiece is roughly around $110.00.

I love Peonies!!

Peonies are awesome!! I just love them. Peonies can be a bit costly, especially if you plan to incorporate them all throughout your floral decor. If you are on a tight budget and cant afford to do so, think about only using them for your bridal bouquet and cake. Think about when you look back at your wedding pics. Those are the areas where you will get the close ups, and your peonies will stand out beautifully. For more ideas, log onto Its a great site I encourage my bride to browse through to get great ideas for floral. If you would like a quote on flowers, email me at

Here I am with Jenna at her home in West Los Angeles, the morning of her big day. Jenna is such a sweetheart, and I loved that I made her bridal bouquet. Her bouquet was a nosegay style of black magic roses tied in a black and white ribbon detailed in swarovski crystals. Jenna is a celebrity manicurist and has a great website you should visit.

Using canopies are great for home events

This event happens to be my parents 35th wedding anniversary dinner party. It was a very intimate event we held ant my sisters home in Los Angeles. We decided to tarp the back yard and have the dinner inside the canopy. We had uplights later in the evening to enhance the decor. We had such a great time, and everyone was loving the decor.

Another great detail was giving each guest table numbers/names. Each guest table were named after different flowers. My parents head table was named Flores, which is our last name and means flowers in Spanish. It was a perfect personalized detail.
