A Successful Fairytale Continued

The client was very pleased with the pumpkin centerpieces and tree-like buffet piece. I believe that designs are only truly appreciated when seen in the context of the event space. Hence the photos...

I was lucky enough to deliver this order myself and have the opportunity to capture some photos. Again- this BEAUTIFUL event space is available to rent through the Walt Disney Family Museum.

Just Call Me Cinderella

I am well aware that the story of Cinderella involves pumpkins and midnight; however, at 4am this morning- I felt like Cinderella!

I was hired by the Walt Disney Family Museum to put together a few centerpieces and a buffet piece for an up coming luncheon. My design involved pumpkins doubling as vases.

So, this morning I found myself listening to Frank Sinatra while gutting pumpkins. When the clock stuck 5am, I hopped in my carriage (aka. my Jetta) and headed to the SF Flower Mart. As the saying goes "the early bird gets the worm". I searched and searched until I found exactly what I was looking for.
bippidy boppidy boo!

It's My Party

November 2nd 2009 marks my 24th birthday- and what a day it was. My family and friends showered me with love, attention, and of course cake!
My darling mother ordered my most favorite treat- a Baskin Robbins ice cream cake! As if this gesture wasn't enough, she went the extra step to make sure that the cake was decorated in "All Set Colors".
And people wonder where I get it from...Thanks Mom!
