The Land of Weddings: Where the heck did June go?

It is amazing to me how quickly time is passing. Already into July, working on events, and meeting with brides for next summer…yikes! I seriously am wondering what happened to June. The month seemed to fly by.
I did work on some pretty special events in June. The first was a memorial service for a friend’s mother-in-law. I used shades of purple for the flowers and incorporated a beautiful hand-made paper from Paper Zone as vase wraps. The hand-made paper was also used on the programs for the service.

Next came an event at the Chapel on Echo Bay on Fox Island. The bride, Heidi, chose a color palette of blue and green and we brought in pale pink, yellow, and white for the flowers. The primary flower used was the gerbera daisy but I also used dahlias, stephanotis, hydrangea and tulips. In addition to the custom ribbon wrap on Heidi’s bouquet I also added a necklace to to design. The necklace was a gift to the bride from her groom and it has very special meaning for both of them.

The end of the month brought a large Grand Opening event at the new retirement/assisted living facility in Gig Harbor; The Lodge @ Mallard’s Landing. For the event I worked onsite to create an ice sculpture design and brought in several additonal arrangments to decorate the facility. It is a gorgeous building with incredible amenities. I wish the staff at The Lodge congratulations on a great event and much success!

Overall, June was a great month. I promise to fill you in on July before the month is over…there are some fun events ahead!

Happy Summer!
