Bridal Show at 'The Oaks at Salem', June 26, 2011

 I want to thank April Mannes, owner of The Oaks at Salem, for inviting me to their first ever bridal show.  There were about 30+ vendors who showed off their talents.  The brides and families that came through the space were wowed by the new venue.  I was so pleased to be invited to the event!  It was a great success with some very positive leads and wonderful feedback. 

 I was situated next to this gorgeous two-story fireplace, so I could not resist adding a bit of florals and other flare.  A simple garland of magnolia leaves, sunflowers, peach roses and crystal strands softened the wood mantle while large glass vases with floating candles strengthened the height of the space.

This bouquet of mini callas, peach roses, and hypericum berries would be perfect for an early fall wedding.

Thank you's also go to Craig with Luster Studios.  Craig was one of the vendors, too.  Craig was so kind to take great photos of everyone's table set-up.  Plus, I just loved my specialy linen from CE Rentals.  The 'Gold Coin' linen was just breathtaking!!!!  Thank you Wil at CE Rentals.

 I love this design.  Manzanita Branches were spray painted gold to highlight the gold and peach/orange theme.  I even got a bit brave by spray painting real sunflowers gold, too.  At the show I hung silver mercury votives from the branches for extra candle-light glow.

This is a very popular look for centerpieces.  Use different size vases/ shapes with a single type flower in each.  Depending on the size of the table, use two, three, four or five vases.   Orange Celosia, Peach Tulips, Peach Roses and Green Hydrangeas make a great combination.
