SIMPLY FLORALS: Coral + blue

Is it just me or is this year moving at the speed of light?! I am loving it though! So many things are happening and quickly! I have been so busy finalizing details for our spring weddings that it's been hard to catch my breathe!!! On top of that I'm working with Love-Inspired to rebrand and redesign the website... and on top of that I will be attending Making Things Happen in a few weeks in Chapel Hill, North Carolina... and on top of that I have not one, but two upcoming styled shoots in March (one is very vintage + enchanted, the other is very dramatic + glam)... and on top of that I have lots of clients coming into town in the next few weeks/months to tour venues, meet with other vendors, food tastings, cake tastings... and the list goes on. But trust me, I am in no way complaining. I am as thankful as ever, because a busy Nicole is an extremely happy Nicole. And to be honest, the best way I relax is by blogging... or being busy... or doing something else I have fallen in love with lately...

Flowers. If you had asked me a few years ago I am going to be completely honest with you... I would have said flowers are dumb. They die. Can you buy me chocolate or cookies or something? And not saying I don't still love chocolate or cookies because I mean let's be real... if there are cookies in the house that is probably what I am eating for breakfast + lunch... and a snack and most likely dessert after dinner too. But going back to flowers. I have fallen in love with flowers + bouquets and more flowers + even bigger bouquets... It's just weird because there is something about flower arranging that just makes me smile. Probably the most genuine and real smile there is. Today was no exception. After picking out some fresh flowers at the wholesaler I came home, cranked up the Taylor Swift on repeat, and got down to it. I put together a bouquet mock-up for a March wedding and also made some boutonnieres and wristlet corsages. I am really excited about how they turned out!!!

Another highlight of my day that I just have to share... I had a phone meeting with a potential client and while she was describing her dream wedding and everything she wants there she added in something a little more unusual that she wants at her wedding... animals. And these are the thoughts that went through my head, "How in the world am I going to pull this off? Lions + tigers at a wedding?! At a wedding in SAVANNAH? Is there even a ZOO in Savannah?! Obviously there has to be a zoo in Savannah? Well maybe not!?! Maybe that's just a big city thing!? Ohhh of course, I bet Atlanta has lions + tigers! But does Atlanta rent out lions + tigers? No I doubt it, I bet we will have to order them from California?! They have everything in California... or maybe Vegas..."

She meant horses...........


On that note, have a great evening ya'll!

  1. I have a dream of having a house filled with flowers all year round (still a dream, though...sigh). So I totally understand your recent love. Oh, and can't wait to see that wedding with horses!


Thank you for reading!
