Some like it hot.... pink!

Unavoidable hiccups here and there but we must embrace those as an opportunity to strengthen our team and to improve our professional skills. Sounds simple but I can't tell you how many times we have pulled our hair :-).

Enjoying a quiet moment today, I could not help but write the story of one event in last December. I can still remember the process of making this fun fuchsia wedding bouquet together with our client and her wedding planner. She chose just one color and used only this beautiful tropical climbers paper like flowers called bougainvillea. From flower showers, flower aisles, cocktail centerpieces to dinner table and flower hanging installations. Bougainvilleas were everywhere and it's hot pink hues made me joyful.

The bouquet was hand tied, an unstructured kind of oval shape of obviously bougainvilleas tied with dried pandan leaves around the stems. We added ferns leaves and wild berries as an accent to this big bunch bouquet.

We had a bamboo platform that was decorated with scattered flowers, trailing ivy leaves and aerial roots. Banana cones filled with flower petals and the aisles were covered with our bougainvilleas. The ceremony felt intimate as family and close friends gathered in this kind of non formal seated ceremony.

The dinner tables were decorated with flower table runners overhanging at both sides of the table. The gold lanterns and votive holders are coming from the wedding planner and the unique resin goodies are produced by the Bride itself. You can find her other products here :-)

Inside the tent, we placed flower installations and hanging flower garlands and greeneries over fairy lights that was installed by the lighting supplier.

The cute lounge sets were brought in by our wedding planner and she decorated them with various cushions and pillows. Accents of floral centerpieces gave a notch to the overall look.
