A Sunny Sunday

This weekend I had the pleasure of taking a hands on floral design workshop. It’s not everyday one is available, so they are definitely a treat for me. This weekend was no different. This workshop in particular was about wedding trends. They GREAT part about these events (besides meeting new people and comparing what we are creating for all of our customers) is creating things that I do not get to practice everyday. We created 5 styles of bridal bouquets using various types of flowers and techniques. It is always great to be able to practice the styles of bouquets are not as popular. For instance, we all know that the hand tied clutch bouquet is the most popular right now, but there are so many options! Cascade, Waterfall, Septor!

There are also new product available. For instance a new type of bridal bouquet holder has been designed to wick water up the handle! This is great because after the wedding the bride can keep her bouquet for a few days until they fly off for their honeymoon. Come on, who doesn’t want to enjoy their flowers for longer, right?! These workshop are the perfect place to see these product and be able to test them out! I am excited and inspired by what I have learned and I can’t wait to show some of the techniques to all of you in “31 days of bridal bouquets”. Okay so that is a shameless plug for my mini blog series starting tom

orrow…. Be sure to check it out!

It has been a very wet weekend here in Southern California, but today it was nice a sunny while I was driving down to Vista, CA and back! I am not going to show you the bouquets that I made just yet, I am going to make you sweat it out a little while….. Instead something nice and bright to for a sunny Sunday!

Have a great week!

To Brighten your Sunday

The sun like gerbera daisies are paired with roses, lotus pods, babies breathe and other small flowers to create this cheerful arrangement. I would love this on my coffee table! Such a great way to cheer up some one!

New Website, New Blog…. Oh My!

After a long run with the previous boring website, I have decided to upgrade! Along with the website, the old blog has also gone bye-bye. With these new and exciting happenings, I would like to share some other exciting things that will be going on here at Floral Design By Jacqueline Ahne.

Coming March 1st, 31 days of Bridal Bouquets! In this mini blog series we will show case bridal bouquets in a range of themes, colors, flowers and styles! Along with the some of the bouquets other floral pieces such as corsage, boutonnieres, centerpieces, and cake flowers will be shown that can compliment the bouquet! Keep your eyes peeled for those coming your way.

We also have a new stock of corsage bracelets! This leads to many new styles and designs that can be worn for prom or weddings. And they are great keepsakes when the event it over! We will be showing some designs on these bracelets in coming blogs.

One last thing before I wrap things up…… Wedding dates are still available for 2010, and we still have some room for weddings in the next few months! Contact us today for a complimentary consultation and we look forward to helping to make many more wedding days beautiful!

A sneak peak at one new type of bracelet, natural shell bracelet comes in 6 colors! These are currently in a limited supply, only two per color right now, however we maybe able to get more if you like them for a wedding. These Bracelets are an extra $5 per corsage (corsage shown at starting price $20) making the corsage only $25!! Great deal if you ask me!
