Fall Photos

I love it when my brides tell me their wedding photos are on line! My bride Nicole was a late September bride. Simple fall colors and flowers for her wedding. Here are a couple of her on her wedding day. I just love this photo of her and the groom...

Gull Lake Country Club Wedding

I had a wonderful year my flower business grew so much in 2009. I had fun, trendy brides that let me do my thing with their designs from feathers, to wheat grass's, orchid's, you name it they wanted it. Thank you my wonderful clients for making Park Place Design the areas most asked for wedding design company in the area.

My most asked for table arrangment in 2009

for 2009 Pomanders are my best sellers by far. I sells 100's of them to my brides they are fun, cute and very useful. Hang them on chairs, then use them as center pieces in the hall sitting on tall glass vases. Most Carnation pomanders stat at 38.00 and can run into 85.00 each depending on the flowers used but if your using in 2 spots it's a GREAT value. Next are my Manzanita Trees, fresh flowers, hanging crystals and lighted votives! oh what a fun way to add to your decor. My tress start at 85.00 and can run into 150.00 depending on the flowers used.
Next my tall arrangement's with willow are FUN!!! they can be used any time of the year. These start with the rented vases at 65.00.. I hope that this gives bride a since of prices and style when choosing styles for your wedding day...

These photo's are of my own work.

September 2009

What a great view of the lodge, sadly to say this will probably be the last one I do for a long time. It will close the end of this month do to the hardships and the economic times What a great photo I am so lucky to have it. so picture perfect.
The bridal bouquet was to die for Plumb callas, monkey tail, plumb lily's, green berries, and white orchids Vanda orchids lily grass. I used plum ti leaves just the right touch for such a great design.
