Wow! OK, so I've had time to recoup! I have had so much to get caught up on so.... I apologize for my delay in posting juicy details and pics of the 2ND Annual "Bridal Style" Showcase that was held on Saturday, March 7Th. It was a SCREAMING success! We had over 100 guests walk through our doors!

Aesops Catering served hor devourers of crab & lobster stuffed croissants, cheese, fruit and chicken florentine. Pronto! on Washington Avenue in downtown Royal Oak provided us with the most amazing torte's in Lemon Chiffon, Strawberry & Mocha. The girls from Vintners's Cellar of Royal Oak served several wines of course hand crafted in their GORGEOUS winery located on Fourth Street in downtown Royal Oak. This table was adorned with an abstract centerpiece of Red Hanging Amaranthus, Salal & Blush Lisianthius.

Tina Shelton from EvenTi did a fabulous sweets table in hot pink & purple!

We did my favorite color in lighting, HOT PINK!

This was a HUGE hit for a table setting. My girls LOVED this one! Shades of warm gold, cream, antiqued yellows & soft whites made this an unabashedly romantic table setting. The combination of Million Star, Orchids, Roses, Calla Lilies & Gerbera Daisies made this a true eclectic combination of new and classic floral design.

This table setting was striking! Another hit with our girls. The velvet Red Rose petals popped of the Tiffany Blue Rosette Table cloth! The black and white scroll accents gave it a classic & modern touch. The petal filled glass cylinder vase topped with a fabulous lamp shade which glowed warmly from a floating candle was the perfect finale for this setting!

This was a Crushed Satin Tablecloth in a fierce orange with red undertones. We paired this with Red Orchid blooms delicately hanging from our Wrought Iron Trees. We embellished them with strands of crystals & hanging glass tear-drop votive candles. This was another popular hit!

This table setting was a matte Satin White tablecloth with a cool Ice Blue Organza Overlay over it. We had a beaded silver charger paired with bloom filled glass pillars topped with floating candles. Our Pilsner vase was filled with majestic heads of Blue Hydrangea and Bella Donna Delphinium! Our featured bouquets here were Hydrangea, Sweet Peas & Roses in vibrant shades of Spring & Summer.

We showcased our 8 New Colors in Matte Satin Bustle Back Chair Covers as well.

I was happy to showcase our new Shabby Chic Antique Candelabras! A staff member gave these to me from an Estate Sale and I had them restored. A past bride gave me a gift of Swarovski Crystals to embellish these with. They are adorned here in Larkspur, Hydrangea, Roses & Hanging Amaranthus. They are so beautiful!
