Bonifay wedding

Here are a few shots and a video from a wedding November 8th. The photos and video are provided by Limelight Photography
Thanks guys!

Create your own storyboard

When it comes to planning and being prepared for the big day, I see all different types of brides. Some have nothing on paper and have no ideas of what look or feel they are trying to achieve. Others have large stuffed binders full of tons of ideas. Most brides though have a hard time pulling all of this information together and focusing on a main theme. I have helped many brides chose their wedding colors during our floral consultation! Storyboards to the rescue!
A storyboard is helpful for even the most organized bride. Cut out or print photos of every element of your wedding so you can see it all together. Then things will become obvious if they don't "fit". Here are some samples of some storyboards that I came across. Storyboards can be done on a regular poster board or right on your computer. When your wedding is over, replace some of the ideas with real photos and make thank you postcards. Get organized with a storyboard and you will have a well composed look! Have fun!

Focal points within your reception area

Many brides out there are unable to spend a great deal on centerpieces or decor for each table. A good alternative for this is to create a couple of focal points within the room. You really need something that will get your guests attention and wow them when they enter the room. Place two smaller tables that no one will be seated at among the other guest tables within the room. Place large lit displays on these two tables with uplighting and lots of drama. That will be sure to catch their attention and only have the expense of two large displays instead of lots of expensive decor for every table. Always remember don't just go through the motions......create memories.

Care Crew

Recently I had the pleasure of making some floral arrangements for a booth at the Pet Adoption Expo. The Hillsborough County Animal Services CARE CREW displayed a quite elegant exhibit at the state fairgrounds last weekend. Buccanneer Mike Alstott and Olympic Silver Medalist Zach Railey were there to sign autographs and help support the cause. The Care Crew was founded by a local celebrity among animals in Hillsborough County. Bob Reina recently gave his heart and his financial backing to some very special animals right here in our area. Want to see what he's done? Bob Reina gives back.

Seabulk Towing 50th Anniversary Party

I am very happy to say that Events in Bloom got to be a part of the Seabulk Towing 50th anniversary party. Victor Davis and Cheryl Brown were easy and fun to work with and pulled together a very memorable event. Many great vendors were involved to pull off this "fabulous" evening.
The event was held at the Tampa Marriott Waterside(Scott Peavey) The lighting, special effects and palms were provided by Paul Thomasson at Extravaganza Productions. The cake was prepared by Wrights Bakery and of course Events in Bloom did all of the florals for the table decor and the decorating of the cake. Everyone involved did a fabulous job. I also want to say congratulations to Seabulk Towing for 50 years of success!

Tablescapes are IN!

What are you seeing a lot of in the high end wedding magazines? Large family style tables with tablescapes. I wish everyone would try something like this! It adds a nice warm feel to the room and lots of color.
Here are a few samples of tablescapes I have found from the very elegant to the very simple.
