Mainline Wedding Florist: Flower Crown Workshop

In honor of Mother’s Day this past Sunday, I co-hosted a Mother/Daughter Flower Crown Workshop with Kylene Cleaver of Leave It To Me Photography at the Bizzy Mamas’ studio space, The Hive, in Ardmore, Pennsylvania. Do you like to play with flowers? It’s my favorite thing to do! Peonies, roses, mums, ranunculus, oh my gorgeousness!!!

I hope that everyone had a great time celebrating all of the moms in their lives. I spent my weekend with my family including my grandmothers and mother. This was my first year celebrating Mother’s Day as a mom myself. It was a very special one for me.

I really also enjoyed spending time with all of these ladies at our floral crown workshop while celebrating their mother/daughter relationships. It doesn’t matter what age you are, flower crowns are fun for everyone!

After a demonstration on how to create a flower crown, the mothers and daughters began to create their own masterpieces with a little help from me. Then they got a chance to model their creations in a mini photo shoot with Kylene of Leave It To Me Photography. So much fun!

I love getting the chance to share my knowledge about designing flowers. What’s better than a workshop?! I am excited about the future of Floral Designs by Jessi. As my business keeps growing, we will be adding more workshops while still focusing on weddings and events. If you have any suggestions on workshops that you would be interested in attending, please leave me a reply. In the meantime, stay tuned for future workshop dates.

I think that everyone did a great job creating gorgeous floral crowns and showcasing their modeling skills for Kylene of Leave It To Me Photography. I love how each crown is unique and beautiful. I believe that wearing a big pretty flower crown makes every girl feel like a princess.

Happy Mother’s Day! I especially want to wish my partner in crime, Kylene, a happy Mother’s Day. She is an awesome mom!

Kennett Square Wedding Florist: Willowdale Steeplechase

I hope that everyone had a great Mother’s Day!  Every year on Mother’s Day is the Willowdale Steeplechase in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania.  What a fun way to celebrate with your mom!  The photo below was taken by Jim Graham Photography.

My obsession continues with creating these great floral fascinators!!!  I was inspired by Great Britain and the Kentucky Derby.

Christina wore this design to the Willowdale Steeplechase last weekend.  I created the structure out of wires and then attached these gorgeous yellow calla lilies!  A ray of sunshine, right?!?!

I am currently working on another floral fascinator and two floral necklaces to be worn at the Radnor Hunt Races tomorrow.  I am still taking orders for floral hats and jewelry designed and created out of fresh flowers and greens with your personal vision in mind.  Up next is the Devon Horse Show at the end of the month.

New Jersey Wedding Florist: Impromptu Photo Shoot with Laura in NYC

Recently, my husband and I visited his sister and her fiancé in New York City.  With all of the gorgeous flowers for sale on the sidewalks, I just had to buy some and make a bouquet.

We stopped at The Trailer Park Lounge for drinks and food.  What better place to create the bouquet?!  People probably thought that I was crazy.  I love the vibrant colors of the ranunculus, mums, and freesia.  I am so happy that Laura agreed to model for me.  We had a great time finding random places in NYC to take pictures.  Plus, Scott is a great assistant, especially when he demonstrates how to pose!  LOL  Unfortunately, he will not allow me to pot the pictures of him.

After spending at beautiful day in New York City, we went to a cherry blossom festival in New Jersey outside of Montclair.  So, this turned into a two-day shoot!  Hope you enjoyed these pictures as much as me!

Delaware Wedding Florist: Veil Trends Trunk Show at Jennifer’s Bridal

I wanted to share my pictures from moments before the Veil Trends Couture Trunk Show began at Jennifer’s Bridal.  They are scheduling appointments through Sunday, March 15th.  Contact Jennifer’s Bridal today to come in and see of the gorgeousness going on!

I even tried one of the hair accessories by Veil Trends Couture on.  The veils are AMAZING!  I especially loved the one with the black lace trim on a cathedral length veil.

With all of this cold, wet weather that we have had recently, I decided that I wanted to bring a little sunshine into Jennifer’s Bridal.  I cannot wait for Springtime to be here!  I repurposed a birdcage and birdbath and filled them with vibrant colors.  The floral arrangements were in a garden inspired style with lilies, tulips, daisies, garden roses, pompom mums, daffodils, irises, and hyacinths.  Can you imagine your wedding with these flowers?  Do you like the style?

The next trunk show at Jennifer’s Bridal is March 27th through March 29th.  They will be showcasing the incredible bridal gowns from Hayley Paige.  These gowns are breathtaking!  Contact Jennifer’s Bridal to schedule your appointment.  For a full list of upcoming trunk shows, please check out their events page.

Each trunk show at Jennifer’s Bridal allows me to showcase a different style and color palette.  I love being able to be creative!  I can’t wait to share what I come up with for the next one!

If you’re looking for a unique, designer wedding gown, then Jennifer’s Bridal is the best place to go!  They are a great boutique bridal shop in Hockessin, Delaware.  And as always, I would love to schedule a floral design consultation for your wedding or special event.  Have a nice weekend everyone!

Rehoboth Beach Wedding Florist: Floral Stylized Photo Shoot with Hannah & Giannah

In anticipation of the upcoming wedding season, I wanted to share this floral stylized photo shoot of Hannah and her daughter Giannah.  It was a damp and breezy day at the beach, but any day at the beach is wonderful!

The pictures were taken at the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk.  Seeing this boardwalk always brings back fond memories from my childhood.  Once I can see the Dolle’s sign, I get filled with excitement just like I did when I was a little girl.

The inspirational bridal bouquet and floral hairpieces warmed this day right up with their vibrant color scheme.  Red dahlias, orange protea, yellow roses and coxcomb bursting with greenery make the perfect selection for beach wedding flowers.

I hope that these pictures inspire you for your wedding day.  Contact me to schedule your own bridal consultation.
