Flower School Bridal Shower

I love a novel party idea. This one combines my love of flowers, learning, fun, and a great take-away gift at the end. Last night my friend Corey and I hosted a little Flower Power Bridal Shower for our great friend Dana. It was held at the Flower School New York. If you don't know it -- you should. They hold amazing courses for learning the art of flower arranging with master designers.

In our case, the fabulous Michael George was our teacher, helping us each create a beautiful bridal bouquet -- a "Biedermeier". I learned this new term, which is defined as a "very structured, symmetrical bouquet, complete with the naural stems".
Here we are with some of our creations.
My bouquet held up overnight.
Michael George is known for his very clean bouquets and arrangements, but a few stems must be broken to create a masterpiece!

We're in Elle Japan!

As you may already know, the Wedding Library is responsible for all the bookings and wedding planning at the Museum of the City of New York. We've been working to share with brides what a great space this is for weddings, and one of the only spaces for a tented, outdoor wedding in NYC!

We are delighted that a beautiful wedding that we planned has a full page feature in the current Japanese Elle. The beautiful stationery that you see at the bottom of the page is from the Wedding Library. The photography is by Karen Wise. Although we can't read a word of what they say about the wedding, we're sure it's flattering!
