Spring Color Schemes

Looking out my back window and seeing my Magnolia tree spurt into bloom makes me think of spring color combinations. Always a classic is ivory, white and subtle pink hues. To create a more modern look accents of brown add an element of something different. Looking through one of my favorite inspiration sites Style Me Pretty ( I am drawn to the featured dress offered by Net-A-Porter (

This dress would be fabulous for an outdoor garden wedding with the bride carrying an array of spring flowers like local ivory Peonies, fragrant white Freesia, creamy garden Roses and a touch of a light pink Ranunculus. I also love the new "Talia" rose with an antique pink-taupe coloring. This would really bring out the champagne color of the dress. Certainly, if you wanted that classic but contemporary feel you could add a few velvety brown magnolia leaves.

I find there is no greater resource to new brides than all the new websites and blogs offered by some of the best designers in the county. It's always a great idea to start with inspiration found on these sites, magazines and books. Any wedding vendor you work with should be happy to take any of these materials into consideration when putting together your personal wedding design.

Exciting News!!!

Big news for Peppertree. By the end of April we will be moving into our new downtown location in the historic Graham Plaza near the intersection of College and 6th. Only a block North of the downtown square we are right in the heart of the shopping district. We hope this new location will provide our clients with a more "hands on" approach to choosing flowers and working on event planning options.

At this location we will be available for all floral needs from daily deliveries to large scale events. We will also have a space dedicated specifically to special events and weddings.

We look forward to you stopping in and browsing our new selection of vases, fresh flowers, green plants and exciting new products. Keep checking in to find out when our grand opening will take place and to view pictures of our space during development.

We can't wait to see you there!

The "Everything" Notebook

Working with brides everyday I see a lot of those wedding journals or "all in one" type wedding organizers. Certainly, there is nothing wrong with carrying around a binder that helps keep everything straight. I've found one of the greatest tools for the newly engaged is to buy a notebook and write EVERYTHING into this one notebook. You can freely copy from this notebook into your organizer or binder but having notes, messages and all other thoughts and brainstorms in one location makes it much easier to find what you're looking for. These notebooks from Miguel-Rius are super cute, but a standard sprial will do you just fine.

Coming from a Post-It junkie I can tell you with experience that it doesn't pay to have an important message written on something small enough to be swallowed into your purse. This new way of keeping everything in one place has saved me and I don't think I'll ever go back.
If you want a stylish notepad just search on line or go to the neighborhood bookstore, you'd be surprised at the selection. These journals are from FabSugar, wouldn't put any bride to shame.
Keeping everything in one place is keeping it all together, and with anyone planning a wedding, this can't be a bad thing.
