2010 Bridal Image

This is the photo by THE IMAGERY STUDIO
of Lynne, a recent bride who participated
in the photo shoot we did at the Chocksett Inn.
Alice took so many great photos but this one
worked the best. It is being made into
4' x 6' banner for my booth at upcoming wedding shows.

Beautiful amaryllis, deep red opium roses, hypericum
berry, lilies and cedar. This piece is for a large buffet table.

Gorgeous white amaryllis!

Tulips, lilies, roses and dendrobian orchids.

What a plant. These amaryllis plants were huge this year!

Permanent botanicals at their best.

This is a fresh balsam wreath with noble fir added, artificial
juniper and decorations. The ribbon is great.

Permanent WREATH with twig orb, cymbidium orchids, calla lilies and
hanging amaranthus. Not the typical Christmas wreath.

Silver and pearl tones and gobs of messy wire. Great!

Christmas house decorating

This is my favorite stairway to decorate. Every year I feel lucky
to have the opportunity to design elaborate roping for this home in
Princeton. Balsam, cedar, pine,seeded eucalyptus, berries and huge pine
cones go into the roping. It is gorgeous!

Mantle pieces for the same home are very large. There are
two mantles about 8 feet long in the dining room and living
room. It takes about 8 hours on and off site to do both mantles and
the stairway.

A gold 9 foot tree in the foyer of another home in
Princeton. Tons of ornaments on this tree!! So far I have
put up 18 trees this week.

Fresh Holiday Wreath Making!!!

Last night I had a great group of very talented wreath makers in
for a night of design. I am always amazed at how each one looks
different. The design room was as full as it can get.
Wonderful job! Thanks Ellen!!!
