St. Andrews Bridal Showcase – 2012

St. Andrews Bridal Showcase 

Sunday, February 26, 2012

We are so thankful for all the beautiful brides that stopped by our booth on Sunday, February 26 at the St. Andrews Woman’s Club Bridal Showcase. It was a great day at the State Fairgrounds!

Our idea for this show’s booth started with some simple fabric swatches… Gracie Jacquard, Pink Champagne Lamour and Navy Blue Lamour. Many of our 2012 brides have chosen navy blue or French blue for their bridesmaids’ attire. So, we took their inspiration and designed our booth from their favorite color palettes. Thanks ladies!

To do something a little interesting, we chose to incorporate antique oyster plates, real oyster shells (picked from the shores of Pawleys Island) and a mix of silver and gold accents (Mercury glass, gold chargers, silver flatware, gold-rimmed china, silver flower vase, etc.) We think it all came together just so sweetly… with a simple arrangement of Baby’s Breath, Quince and Monty as the centerpiece to bring it all together.

Baby’s breath was very popular in the 80s and 90s, and now – it’s slowly coming back as a beautiful (and inexpensive!) flower when clustered together by itself or just with one or two other accent flowers. Did you know? Baby’s breath’s real name is Gypsophila. Some florists call ‘Baby’s breath” simply “Gyp”, among the floral industry. Its botanical name means “lover of chalk”, which is accurate in describing the type of soil in which this plant grows. Another beautiful flower to pair with Baby’s breath… Queen Anne’s Lace. Just lovely!
