I was inspired by an arrangement I sent to a friend when her mother was sick and decided to use lemons and limes in the decor for my next event. The fruit created a strong visual impact and added to the casual atmosphere of this cocktail party.

I have recently started collaborating with wedding and event planner, Renee Metty of It's Eventful (www.itseventful.com) and she asked me to design her booth at the recent Crave Show at Seattle Center. The event was for the American Heart Association's Go Red campaign so we wanted to show a modern, sophisticated spin on the red theme. I used three kinds of roses, rose hips and red/purple mini callas for the floral arrangement and the Floral Silhouette L'Amour overlay in black with cerise napkins all from BBJ Linen. Black glasswear from Totally Tabletops (http://www.totallytabletops.com/) added the final touch.

I loved planning and designing this event for Grammy and Oscar winning composer Marvin Hamlisch's visit to Seattle! I used champagne and gold lamour linens from BBJ with 150 delicate glass candle holders in various shapes and heights to accentuate the shimmer. The flowers were white with tulips, roses, freesia, wax flowers, lisianthus and wisteria. Pure glamour!
