Happy 10th Birthday, Grace!

I had such a fun day today…I had the honor of hosting a birthday party for a very special young lady, Grace.  She truly is the sweetest, most polite, hilarious, outgoing, loving little girl you’ll ever met:-) And the best part?  All of her friends who joined her today were the same…they made my “job” super easy, and we all had a blast.

Grace chose a Fairy Garden Party, where each of the girls were given a blank slate (tub of dirt) to build a magical fairy garden.  After a brief discussion on the different elements they could choose from (succulents, plants, rocks, moss, cactus pods, strawflower, glass beads, colored sand…you name it; they got to use it!), the girls got busy digging, planning, and designing.  I was blown away by their talents…let’s just say that they all had better ideas than I did, and I could easily hire each one of them to help me teach my classes!

Thank you Grace, for sharing your special day with all of us at Posy Petals~ hope you have the best birthday ever!

{Super cute party supplies were purchased at Fancy That who will soon have a pop up shop in my studio…soo excited!}

Wedding Paradise at Lake Merwin

What an incredibly beautiful setting for a small, intimate wedding.  Bride and Groom asked for a very natural, woodsy theme for the flowers as they are avid hikers and nature lovers.  I suggested using birch wooden vases for the flowers, and the handyman groom took it one step further…he turned some wooden logs into  centerpieces for me to design my flowers in, and they turned out beautiful- very unique, and perfect for this lake setting.  Congratulations Andy and Nancy!  It was an honor to be part of your wedding, and I wish you both much happiness and love together….
