This destination wedding at Sunset Ranch on Oahu’s North Shore in May was many months in the planning. It was a super windy day but it ended up being just perfect for the couple who were nestled under a tent for their reception overlooking a beautiful pond on the property. The hillside is so beautiful with all the horses and peacocks roaming the property.
We created a bridal bouquet with silvery succulents, dusty miller, & lavender roses. The stem of the bouquet was wrapped with natural burlap to finish off the design. I loved how the photographer Jeannemarie photographed it against a rustic log on the Sunset Ranch property.
We created this arbor out of natural birch poles draped with a pretty ivory lace fabric. Staying with the natural beauty of the the ranch, a greenery garland was designed out of plumosa & eucalyptus leaves with tiny small white filler flowers woven into the garland. I sewed burlap sashes for the backs of the chivari chairs & we used natural wooden tree stumps at the entrance to the aisle
Loving our new organic burlap table cloth & vintage lace table runner. Fabric strips of burlap were added to the mason jar candles & I used hobnail vintage glass votives. These are all available for rental.
An elegant table with fuchsia & white garden roses, veronica, eucalyptus , lavender ocean song roses, & organic greenery fillers lined atop our new organic burlap table linen with a beautiful white vintage lace runner accented with white baroque charger plates.
Our new white shabby chic distressed wooden buffet server. Circa 1940 . Pretty vintage plates atop with french macarons
A blush pink shabby chic distressed stool with a pretty vintage Rachel Ashwell fabric seat cover
Our new blush pink shabby chic distressed chair with a pretty hand carved rose on the back of the chair. This too is covered with a vintage Rachel Ashwell fabric seat cover
I LOVE our new wine barrels!! We made a table top board that lays across two of the barrels to make this cute dessert & soda bar. I sewed a burlap topper & an ivory & white lace topper as well. The barrels are great for a display bar or used as a high top cocktail table/ photo table/ cigar bar. These are available for rental
This vintage photo back drop was weeks in the planning & designing. I found authentic vintage wallpaper from the 1930”s – 40′s circa & created this fantastic back drop for our couple. The vintage pink chairs & back drop are available for rental .
We set up a picnic lounge area for the couple off to the side of the pond at Sunset Ranch. A vintage picnic basket filled with french breads & wine, vintage plates, suitcases, old books & a music lounge with bongos & a guitar : a perfect photo op for the couple. I can’t wait to see the couple’s photographer’s photos – Visionari. Please stay tune for more of this wedding!
Sunset Ranch is so beautiful!! As we were setting up our florals & rental decor, horses & a baby goat came strolling by. I could not resist taking this photo with my I phone.

I just designed a new line of wedding teepees that we are in love with! The ideas & colors are unlimited!! We are now offering these teepees for set up at your wedding receptions or party. Children love them & they offer a great photo op for your guests or a quiet bohemian lounge get-away area for couples. This beautiful white sheer ” Ocean Cottage Lace” has a very eterical look & has a pretty lace boarder sewn around the edges. The sheep skin fur rug & pillows add for an inviting lounge area. I am sewing a very pale blush pink one that will be ready at the end of June! The 2nd photo is our “Beach Blush Vintage Lace” teepee with lots of ruffle fabric & lace. I have a smaller children’s size teepee in sea glass aqua blue or a shabby chic pink & grey. I am currently sewing a very soft buttery carmel color. All of our teepees include rugs, pillows, & lighting. Stay tune for more teepees in paradise!!
I just launched the rental of our newest collection of Vintage plates. These plates are gorgeous!!!! I have dinner, salad, dessert & butter plates available to rent now for all of my booked floral clients. The quantity per design is limited as these are the real thing! Placing mismatched plates on a table adds such character for that vintage touch of Eras Past! thank you Jeanne Marie Photography for shooting these pretty plates for me
Photographer Jayson Tanega just shot some of my bridal bouquets for an upcoming wedding magazine ad. My vintage chairs made a cool backdrop

What a lovely set up this was that we designed at the historical Bayer Estate. I created a vintage inspired floral & candle display with vintage votives, candles & vases of garden roses, antique hydrangeas & wax flower filler. We created a separate Bohemian lounge area close to the ocean/ beachside for Miho & Akiyoshi’s guest lounging & photos. Thirty minutes before the event was to end the State of Hawaii issued a Tsunami warning due to the earthquake in Canada & all beachside areas had to be safely evacuated. I will update this blog with more photos as they come in. All of our vintage/ bohemian details are available for rental.

I wanted to remind everyone that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. I will be making a 10% donation on all orders from my brides who order any PINK Bridal Bouquets for the month of October until the end of the year ( 2012). My sister is a breast cancer survivor & we celebrated by enjoying a wonderful spa treatment at the amazing Spa Grande at the Grand Wailea Resort in Maui. We attended the Spa’s opening night for Breast Cancer Awareness month while at the resort. The Maui Fire Department had these cute Pink MFD T-shirt’s that all the Maui firemen will be wearing for the month of October to bring awareness & raise money for Breast cancer. The firefighters already have raised more than $9,000. from the sale of the T-shirts & proceeds will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. MFD really rocks!!!!! Please enjoy a few of my PINK bridal bouquets & let’s all work together to stamp out breast cancer!!
My alter ego enjoyed creating these cool Bohemian dens at a few of our very unique weddings this summer. Designed at the beautiful historic Bayer Estate, these structures are designed with colorful fabrics (your choice of colors), lighting, floor seating on rugs with pillows, low tables & hanging crystals, ribbons, chandeliers or other lighting options. Guests have so much fun in this magical hide-away lounge area. We added a fire pit on the beach & a smores dessert bar next to the lounge area at one wedding. The Hookah lounge was designed at our annual Back to the Garden 60′s Party. Stay tune for the Next Shabby Chic wedding later this summer.
