Tomorrow, Saturday August 4, I will be giving a demo on how to create tablescapes using flea market finds. I went shopping at Denio's market in Roseville last Sunday - it's a HUGE flea market in Roseville - and spent $50 on some wonderful things that I'll show you tomorrow! Learn some of my secrets on how to make your vintage finds integrate with each other and look beautiful. If you like vintage, I'm also offering a Denio's special to style YOUR vintage finds for your wedding. So come out, we'll be in the shade, and my demo will start at 11:05. There is a great salsa contest (ala "Chopped") that sounds very exciting, and there will be lots of tasting opportunities in the Farmers Market, too. Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes, wear a hat (I hope you'll check out the flea market too!), stay hydrated, and bring your cart (or buy one at Denio's!) or wagon to bring home your wonderful finds!

|Pink Gerbera and pink spray rose wedding bouquet for Apple Hill / Camino wedding near Placerville in El Dorado County|
Meredith had a lovely pink and navy wedding at Silverthorne Meadows wedding venue in Apple Hill / Camino. Her flower choices included shades of pink gerberas, spray roses, carnations, and roses. Carnations are cool!!!
A Special Day Designs designed her personal flowers and headtable flowers; she purchased DIY bulk wedding flowers from us to DIY her centerpieces. She also DIYed her ceremony arch. Lovely and fresh!

|Sola wood (aka balsa wood or tapioca wood) and cotton boll alternative wedding bouquet with metallic and icy details, and a custom etched copper bouquet charm|
For her bridesmaid, I made a bouquet with sola wood flowers and simple muslin leaves and a burlap handle that complemented Elizabeth's bouquet. The bouts complemented both bouquets.
Elizabeth had two flower girls, and I made each a halo head wreath of sola wood flowers. I included some bling, copper wire and copper ribbon, to match the theme.
The ceremony included a chuppah of birch poles and cloth. I designed four pole dangles of sola wood flowers that included a faceted glass crystal ball dangle on each to catch the light as the chuppah was carried, and that matched Elizabeth's bouquet.
All of this was done in advance of the wedding; Elizabeth and her fiancee picked up everything a few weeks before the wedding on their way home from a Lake Tahoe trip. These are all items that can be done in advance, and in fact, can be mailed anywhere in the world!
Many thanks to Jessa Wilber for the photography.

|Woodland bouquet details - cymbidium orchid, raspberries, dahlia, spray roses, hypericum berry, and maidenhair fern|
|Blue thistle, dahlias, spray roses, raspberries, and callas were details in her woodland wedding bouquet for her ceremony at Nestldown in Los Gatos|
I worked with Ashley for a year on her bouquet....it started out as peach roses and safari sunset with hypericum berries, to emerge into a wonderful woodland bouquet. Ashley gave me the freedom to create something beautiful....sometimes I can't be sure of what is at market, and I don't know until I actually order and then pick up the flowers. She even decided to have me add some peach tulle, which you can see under the dahlia above, as a nod to her many years of ballet lessons.

I love this sweet photo of Ashley's dad helping put her train out...and I don't understand how Ashley walked down those many, steep stairs in heels!
|Lovely bride at lovely Nestldown!|
Here's the lovely arbor and our lovely wedding couple...there's a pond with a fountain behind them, in full sunlight. Guests sat in a lovely shaded woodland clearing.
|Exchanging vows at Nestldown.|
On to the reception! Ashley developed her ideas for the reception with me over the year....she pretty much knew what she wanted, and I made suggestions on flowers and based on her thoughts and inspiration photos, I was able to recommend and carry out what she wanted for her tables and cake pedestal.

|Submerged wedding centerpieces of blue delphinium with floating candle; callas, and a ball candle with table number, all on a stained stump. Not only were rose petals strewn about, but also hypericum berries, to add to the woodland feel.|
|I just love this ball candle in a short cylinder, with a wood table number...perfect!|
|There were lovely vegetarian appetizers at each table, for after the cocktail hour.|
|Wedding cake on unique cake pedestal of glass square vases with rose petals|
|I love to tuck flower heads in wherever I can!|

Here are some copper lovelies that I have metalsmithed - I have cut from copper sheet, sanded, hammered, torched, soldered, and smithed especially for weddings. I'm also showing some examples from other artists of what you might use in your wedding.
