Valentine Bride order completed

2.01.2009
Here are some picture of my Valentine Bride's completed order. There is one bridal bouquet, 4 bridesmaids' bouquets, one Maid of Honor's bouquet, 6 boutonnieres, 2 corsages and 1 flower for the flower girl to hold.
Guess which was the toughest to make? :) The flower girl's flower. I needed something that would hold her attention, since she's just 2 and a half years old :). So, I came up with a single flower, embellished it with pearl sprays and leaves and finished it off with a ribbon. I hope at least one of those things will keep her interested enough in the flower, so as to not throw it away till the ceremony is over :). But with children, you never know :).

The maid of honor bouquet is a little different from the bridesmaids' bouquets. It has hydrangeas instead of orchids.
Over the months, Anitra - the bride - has become more of a friend than a client and its been such a pleasure working on her flowers. I now hope that she likes the flowers in person, as much as she likes them in photos. Here's wishing Anitra and David a blissful married life......
