NYC - centerpiece idea!

These were the centerpieces in the lobby of our hotel in NYC. I love them. They would make great centerpieces for a wedding. You could use different flowers or different colored lilies. I love the simplicity. I have more inspiration to post soon!

Unique bouquet idea from Patty Bores!

I love unusual, "out of the box" wedding ideas and I love these creations by my friend Patty Bores of Sweet P Floral Design. Patty participated in a bridal event held by "Tie the Knot" bridal boutique. She designed the flowers for this showcase event for "Pop Jewels", Accessories for the Bride - a new business started by another friend Maria Gal. Justin Schaffer from Irresistible Creations provide chocolates for the guests and Chris Ceron was the DJ for the evening. It was a great time to visit with other wedding professionals and some future brides.

Chandelier Productions goes to NYC!

I'm not good at this blogging thing, but I'm trying. This past weekend, my husband, daughter and I went to New York City for a fun trip together. We had a blast touring the city. We found some wedding ideas that I will post later, but for now I will post photos of the chandeliers we found out and about in the "Big Apple". The first one is hanging in the "Hudson" hotel. The lobby is amazing and the chandelier "lamps" are actually holograms. The second chandelier was hanging in Macy's by the MAC counter - thank you to Meghan who helped Sarah and I pick out some new eye shadow and lipstick colors! Yeah.

For some reason this morning I was thinking about this photo collage. My amazing friend and photographer, Ashley Brockinton, asked me to help her with this photo shoot months ago. We had a great time creating the scenes for this display. We were given an assignment to post pictures of a bride, a planner and an "element" of a wedding. Ashley Albee was our beautiful bride. Ashley Brockinton and I wanted to use "white" with a little "pink" to accent our design. I used my Aunt's Rosenthal china from the 50's that is so chic and modern and simple. I love these candy jars and have used them for several weddings. We were originally going to put fish in them, but that didn't work out so we settled for marshmellows. Did you know they make pink marshmallows. It was so much fun to find them at Target! Anyway, we worked really hard on this project and the pictures are unbelievable. I think it looks like something you would see on "Martha Stewart" or "Style Me Pretty" - way to go Ashley!

Mr. & Mrs. Joseph Greene

A few weeks ago, an old friend called and asked my husband and me to help with his wedding. It was a very intimate, casual ceremony on the beach. The weather was beautiful and we were happy to be involved. My husband, Jim, officiated the ceremony and did an awesome job - as usual. It was interesting watching people stop to look and listen, except for the 3 bikini clad, mature women that were walking behind us just as Michelle and Joe were exchanging their vows! Kiley Melheim, an amazing hair stylist and friend, did Michelle's hair and makeup and flowers were by Botanicals by the Gulf. The wedding and dinner was held at the Naples Beach Club. Susan and her staff did an excellent job.

My grandson...and blogging

I started a blog months ago because someone suggested that it was good for my business. I learned today that lots of people have blogs - I guess it is the new thing. So I was encouraged to do more blogging.

Sometimes I have profound things to say, but not that often. I'm going to give this blogging thing a try. We'll see what happens. So this blog is about life and love and family which is the foundation of Chandelier Productions.

Soren is 2 weeks old and is adorable. I spent the afternoon with him today and it was amazing. He is such a beautiful baby. And I promise you that I am not biased at all! I was so blessed to spend time with my son, daughter-in-love and grandson. I can't believe how in love I am with this little boy.
