I am very happy to have been given the chance to work with solid colors. I have been waiting for this for a long time now, and wow! The results, IMHO, came out amazing! I hope you like them, too. :-) Above photo is a sample of a wrist corsage for the secondary sponsors. Very good idea to just do this because they have to keep their hands free for their duties during the ceremony. There are five (5) pieces of carnations in this wrister with our trademark faux crystals.

A sample of a hand-tied bouquet. One bouquet consists 12 pieces of varying shades of Gerbera, while yellow snapdragons gravitate towards one side. The whole affair is made softer by touches of local Queen Anne's Lace (Daucus sp.) and finished off with a tree fern wrap (why is this more known as asparagus in the market?!). This variety, methinks, is actually fool's parsley.
A sample of a pomander. Love the bright yellow button mums! The ribbon for the entire entourage was used as a handle, with the usual feathers on side and faux crystals on the other.
They really stood out against the orange fabric of these flower girls' dresses.

And last but definitely not the least, the bride's bouquet. This bunch is made of fifteen (15) pieces of the most beautiful yellow Ecuadorian roses. Yellow is my favorite color when it comes to roses. They really make for remarkable bouquets. It looks small in this photograph, but the diameter of this bouquet is around 25 inches and a total height of 35 inches from tip of crystals down to the end of the handle.

Like the rest of the hand-tied bouquets, the bride's has quite the same elements: local Queen Anne's Lace, faux crystals (albeit different ones; here they are still frosted from the coldness of the fridge) and tree fern wrap. :-)
