Dandelions at Yesterday’s Trade Show

Last night was the Emerald Executive Association trade show, and the ladies at Dandelions stayed out late to mingle and man our booth!

 

This year, we went with a fun fall theme, and along with all the things that come with the season, our designers added their special touch.

 

They did such a great job decorating our booth and setting up our products for display!!

We also gave everyone who came by our booth to a chance to win something – if they spun the wheel!

Because the trade show is so close to halloween, there were some great costumes and decorations and I had to get a few pictures:

     

the team at the Braun Landscape booth looked great, and Elvis made an appearance and performed at the Smeed Communications Services booth.

Of course you can’t go anywhere without the Mafia showing up!! The team from Gateway Living did a great job on their costumes.

 

 

 

 

 

The Oregon Electric Station did an excellent job catering the food, making the evening a fun, informative and fulfilling one.

Fall Bridal Bouquets

If you’re planning a fall wedding the season is quickly approaching. The colors in autumn are so gorgeous and September/October weddings here in Oregon tend to be fantastic. Yes, the weather in October is a bit dicey…but the leaves!! So pretty. Here are some ideas and inspiration for wedding bouquets if you are exchanging vows this fall.

A beautiful mix of tropical flowers with dahlias and sunflowers

Sunflowers are available in both standard and minis- combine both sizes for more interest

Shades of orange gerbera daisies, carnations, roses and alstromeria

Fiery orange tones are quite stunning against the champagne and ivory dresses

The miniature calla lilies are used to create the in-out look for more interest and texture

Haley didn't want white for her bouquet and chose a larger version of her bridesmaids' bouquets

I love the combo of blue and orange (Photo by Blue Castle Photography)
