in love / Finch & Thistle Event Design

Monday, April 26, 2010
I would call it love at first sight.
While browsing through Seattle’s florists, designers, and other wedding vendors I came upon Rachel’s website Finch & Thistle.  Wow- talk about beautiful, sophisticated, and innovative work!  After meeting with Rachel I was even more impressed…she is absolutely darling and really has a passion for her work.

From custom floral design to event decor, Finch & Thistle does it all.  Rachel’s work is also in this month’s Metropolitan Bride & Groom.  Pick up a magazine and check her out! 

For all my brides-to-be, I truly recommend Rachel & know what a work of love it is for her.  Don’t hesitate to contact her for more information. Thank you Rachel for creating such unique work that is inspiration for us all!

Here’s a little sampling of their gorgeous work…

And while these two pictures are the work of Amy Soper and Adam Conway, I think they’ll give you a little bit of insight into the fabulous couple behind the lens….on their own wedding day.

Cindy and Ethan Imagined

I was asked to design a centerpiece for the Junior League’s Starry Night Gala last month. Among the requirements - that the piece be composed of one single color and that I used a glass vase no more than 6” high. Not overly inspiring to say the least!

Less than a week before the piece was due, I was still debating the colors. Green for Spring? Too boring. Blue for the starry night theme? Not many blue flower varieties this time of year.  Hmmm. Then inspiration quite literally dropped out of the sky and arrived on my doormat! A beautiful wedding invitation from friends in CA inviting us to their June wedding in Sonoma.

Gorgeous right? And so the process began…the flowers would have to be pink. Silver to play up the elegance of the letterpress. Rural, meadow flowers and herbs to complement the location. Roses to add sophistication…

Have you ever seen that section of Bride & Bloom where different designers put together a table from the same color scheme and theme?
Now I’m dying to see what the Sonoma floral designer comes up with!

Spring Flowers

I have been so busy working on all the fast-approaching weddings and galas (and yes, playing for a very short week in Belize) that I haven’t been keeping up with posting the recent work. Here’s the first of a few catch-up posts…

Hellebores -

Oh my! How I *love* the hellebore! A gorgeous, delicate little flower that blooms long before everything else in my garden. I now have a full bed of the little beauties – black/purple ones, rose ones, blush ones, lime ones, double bloomed yellow ones – to use in Spring bouquets and boutonnieres.
