Dog Wedding Collar

Remember my girlfriend who had the gorgeous Kate Spade inspired colorful wedding?  She had me create her dog, Sophie, a beautiful doggie wedding collar.  We matched up the colors of the collar to match all the other flowers.  Her husband and her got married at a public park in Boston.  Therefore, Sophie sure was the talk of the park that day.

Ever heard of the saying "Mommy Brain"

My girlfriends warned me of "mommy brain".  However, I did not believe them until Madelyn came around.  This "mommy brain" moment takes the cake or should I say "flowers".  I was asked to do some arrangements for a former bride for her parents 35th wedding anniversary.  I thought the date was June 30th and it was actually suppose to be July 30th!  Luckily, it was just her bouquet I made and four buckets to line a aisle going down the beach and not an entire wedding!  I was so bummed as I thought the flowers turned out great and just what I had in mind for a vow renewal on the beach:)  The bride told me to use my judgement on picking the flowers but did tell me that her mom loved yellow roses.   I added a few in to all the arrangements.  Here are some close up shots of the bouquet.  My mother in law had just celebrated her 37th wedding anniversary, so I packed up the flowers for our fourth of July road trip (at least they could still be enjoyed)!!   Forgetful mommy brain was not good!
