Moving

I have some great news to share. Park Place Design is moving! Yes that's right I am moving from my home stuido to a new bigger store front. I am moving into a bigger studio space. My wedding business has grown leaps and bounds and working from home is no longer working because of space.
   I am so excited I can hardly wait. I signed the lease last Friday and should have the keys in a day or two. I dread the moving part BUT it comes at a good time where I have some time off to make the move. May is a crazy wedding month I will be moved in and ready to rock it out. I am a little sorry I still can not work from home. BUT my children are all bigger and in school full time so me being here all day is not really necessary anymore. I will post pics of my new space as soon as I get settled.
  Mean time I had some photos taken this weekend from http://munrophotography.blogspot.com/




I think they turned out very nice. I will use them in wedding business and for professional use. Have a great week... Tracy

When clients want more then just wedding work

When I started this small little wedding biz at home I never EVER thought that it would bloom into the amazing design studio that it has become. I have groom leeps and bounds in the past few years. My brides are fun, have amazing tastes and trust me to make their floral dreams a reality. I have worked with some amazing vendors who also trust me my talent's and what I have to offer. I always thought I would just do "wedding" designs. Thats all I really thought of or I really wanted to do.
  Jump ahead a few years and here I am. Clients are asking more of Park Place Design. Sadly with more and more traditional flower shops going by the wayside former brides are asking more of my talents this past winter I did a number of  Large Birthday party's, special request from venues, and jobs that are out of the normal for me.
This is going to be so cute at the party

    That brings me to this post. I was ask by a photographer to design from a photo she had from her client birthday center pieces  for her 3 year olds birthday this weekend. I was thrilled with the challenge. Here are the results that will go to the little girls"princes" party this weekend.  I love a great challenge and this was so fun. I also love that My floral is expanding into more event and personal work. There are some BIG changes to tell you about but I cant tell for now. Maybe in a couple of weeks. For now enjoy these cute pictures.

Family weddings

Family gets married~ My brother in law got married this weekend, In a very small informal wedding. This was the 2nd wedding for both the bride and groom. Of course when the bride asked me to design flowers for them I was MORE then happy to come up with a spring mix of blooms for them and the attendants.

   The church was not decorated to much a few blooms on the chairs. A small short ceremony they off to get photos then to Clara's on the river for dinner and talking. All in all it was the perfect day for them great family times and dinner. Here are a few photos I took I added some fun elements that the bride and groom were not expecting. BUT of course that's what the flower lady does. Congrats to my new family!
