A Morning with Marilyn

Today was one of those fun, girlfriend days that I never seem to do very often. I had a date with my friend Tina and we ventured down to Toronto early this morning to attend the taping of The Marilyn Show! Fun, good giggles, great seats in the audience, tasty thai lunch and some retail therapy - what could be better?!

So good to see Marilyn Denis back where she belongs in a daytime TV timeslot (although we always enjoy her radio show too). The super-cool studio "loft" set for this new lifestyle show is fab - very urban and cool, except you still feel like you are sitting right across from Marilyn herself...like an hour with a longtime girlfriend! The ONLY thing missing are clay flower arrangements on an accent table between Marilyn and her guest! {wink!} Gotta keep working on that one... :)

Here is a quick photo from my cellphone (sorry for the blurry-ness). If you want tickets, go to http://www.marilyn.com/ for details on how to attend the live tapings of this show!

Welcome Back, Marilyn!

North of the City Magazine

I am thrilled to share with you that I have a business spotlight article in the North of the City Magazine! I was approached in December to participate and was busily getting arrangements and bouquets ready for photography.

You can link to the article here.

I am so pleased with how the article was written and thankful for all of the feedback from family, friends and former clients...as well as the inquiries for new business.
Seems there are LOTS of people becoming interested in clay flowers! I have even had inquiries from brides who would like their treasured bouquet replicated in clay - well after the wedding! I have done this very successfully and with the photos supplied by the bride whereby I am able to re-create their goregous bouquets in clay to keep forever!

I am grateful for this media opportunity and welcome new business inquiries.

2011 - it is going to be a great year!

New Year's Wedding Flowers

I wanted to share some photos of the bridal flowers that I created for Katie and Bill. Katie came to me after being a bridesmaid of one of my previous clients. She loved the bouquet that she carried for that wedding and I was thrilled to work with her for her own wedding! With the very elegant and stylish palette of white, tiffany turquoise and accents of silver, this would be a New Year's wedding to be remembered by all!

The out of season blossoms that Katie selected were easily replicated in clay - open white peonies, bloomed and blossoms of white gardenias coupled with white hydrangeas and stephanotis. Accented with silver embellishments, tiffany turquoise organza ribboning and white fluffy feathers, the bridal bouquet turned out stylish and stunning. The other photo is the maid of honour's bouquet - mainly white gardenias, different silver embellishments and more of the turquoise ribboning.

I am very thankful that Katie and Bill were so impressed with their wedding flowers and wish them a lifetime of happiness!
