OC Brideworld Bridal Expo 6-10-12

We spent last Sunday with hundreds of excited brides-to-be (and a few grooms-to-be) at the Brideworld Bridal Expo at the Orange County Fair & Event Center.  The brides were treated to a display of a pink, orange, purple and light green color scheme within our floral arrangements and linen/rental choices.

The sweetheart table display at our booth showed a light green (celadon) tablecloth with black chiavari chairs, silver chargers with black napkins and included a box floral arrangement of Peonies, Hydrangea & Roses as well as 2 beautiful bouquets, one simple & elegant (Mango Calla Lilies) and the other a bit more vintage with some "bling" (Hydrangea, Peonies, Succulents, Orchids & Dusty Miller).  We also showcased the same color/flower scheme in our 2 larger centerpiece mockups; 1 was a round topper to a trumpet vase (Hydrangea, Peonies & Roses), crystals in the bottom of the vase and was sat atop a mirrored platform box; the other was geared towards our Asian clients utilizing a lazy susan for their dinner reception and utilized an eiffel tower vase with a round topper (Hydrangea, Roses & Dahlias). We also had a collection of smaller, low arrangements that can be interchanged with the tall arrangements or clustered together for a more voluminous centerpiece.

The sweetheart display over at the Classic Party Rentals embraced the tangerine/oranges with some pops of white & green.  We also went a bit more "organic" by including some small Succulents amongst the Hydrangea, Dahlias & Spray Roses in the 2 small square arrangements. We finished the look off with a 3-tiered floating candle display between the 2 arrangements.

We enjoyed meeting and getting to know all the brides and hope our design, color and floral ideas inspired everyone as much as we enjoyed creating them!
