Kellie Green holding a bouquet of Paris roses, eggplant callas and jewels at the bridal show yesterday being effortlessly sexy. Next a closeup of the bouquet and a couple of different centerpiece ideas. Gothic and rich. I love seeing period styles done neo-classical. So romantic and something you can look back on years from now and say "yeah, I was beautiful, classic and totally me."

Elevated centerpieces have become quite popular, you can see across the table and still get lots of pop in the room. I like to put something in the vase for added visual interest, in this case a red rose, black rocks and black and silver wire.

I made a few of these last year and they were well received. A flat snowflake ornament with a glass ball ornament glued to it, take off the top, fill with water and you have a neat Christmas bud vase. The silver sprayed lily grass gives the design some elegance.

Some of the decor from Jill Lawrence and Aaron Juckette's home. I really dig the copper, gold and pewter motif. I'm especially fond of the 2nd piece which was red 15 minutes earlier. I wish you both much happiness!

As soon as wedding season ends (there are still a few in December) I go right into Christmas decorating. Cindy and Jon have had me in their home before as a design consultant so I know their tastes. Their home has lots of warm colors, so along with the coppers, burgundy and browns we used some green as an accent color. This tree concept was Cindy's idea (and a good one) I just executed it for her and made some accompanying pieces. I really like this color combo (it's a lot like my dining room tree so I am biased.) Great ideas Cindy and always a pleasure to work with you!

When I make bouquets for friends I generally like to hand tie them just like a bridal bouquet, there's just something pure about arranging flowers in your hand. Some magenta stock, orange roses, and green hypericum (yeah even I can't resist a managers special on flowers when shopping sometimes.) The phalaenopsis blooms were from one our plants with the blooms removed from the stem and individually wired in.
