Bridal Show January 2011

Petals & Co went to the Crowne Plaza last weekend for the 2010 Bridal Show.  Here's a shot of the booth just before the show opened.  So exciting  to see Michelle's pencil sketch come to life in vibrant living color.  We had a great time chatting with lots of brides. 

 Peonies in January!  Thanks to the flower industry, it's possible to have heavenly-smelling gorgeous fluffy peonies even in winter.  These bouquets and centers were made with white & pink peonies, hydrangeas,  ranuncula,  and tulips.  Spheres on the main table were pinned with white mums and bright green athos.  And check out those garlands of dendrobium orchids!
These small wired bouquets are a Petals & Co. specialty.  This one is topped with three cymbidium orchids and beads and is perfect for mothers or bridesmaids.   Cymbidiums are a great choice for bridal flowers--great colors, long-lasting, reasonably priced.
Here's Michelle, our owner and designer, chatting with  a bride and groom.

If you missed this show, put us on your calendar for January 30th, when we'll be at the Prairie Capitol Convention Center's  Everything Weddings, Expo & Style Show.
