Behind the scenes at the Bling 2011 wedding show

Finally we have some time to take a breather after the busy wedding season and I wanted to share with you some behind the scenes setup and install of our booth at the Bling show.   I was up on the ladder starting to arrange the all the hydrangeas and green dendrobium with a floral knife at 5 am in the morning.  You should have seen my sleepy eyes! :) Took me longer than I anticipated and I thought I was going to falling a sleep on the ladder. :)

At last,¬†we were able to spend a bit of time in the Rosewood Hotel Georgia as we booked a room for us and our staff that were working with us at the late night. We also had weddings the night before that and required 1 am take down from nearby so I knew we won’t be able to go home that night.¬†¬†The pictures will show you how¬†beautiful the room at Georgia hotel was and the bathroom was breath taking! It would be great in the near future to stay there again!¬† I think it is also¬†a great room for bride to get ready on her wedding day since it has huge bathroom with two his and her vanities!¬† Enjoy the photos!

Bling Wedding Show 2010

Bling 2010 was a huge success and I wanted to take a moment to thank Harumi Suzuki (Harumi Signature Weddings) for putting together a fabulous show. We had a great time connecting with the 2011 brides and it was very personal, non rushed experience. I hope to meet some of you soon for a consultation to discuss about your wedding flowers!

And also at the same time, we were able to network with other wedding industry peers. It’s so good to meet some of you in person as we often bump into each other while setting up for weddings and we don’t have time to chat a bit. It was a good time and I hope we collaborate in the near future!

A few pictures from the show… enjoy and hope to hear from you soon!

Wedding 2011


Congratulations on your engagements! Bookings for 2011 weddings have begun and we are ready to set up your wedding consultation.

The 2010 wedding season is not quite over yet; we still have a few more weddings before the end of the year because fall weddings became popular over the years. We are grateful for the patience of the brides who wanted to book our wedding consultations during the summer. We were unable to accommodate all of the appointments due to our focus on our weddings in 2010 during the summer.  Finally, we encourage couples to book our wedding consultation sessions as early as possible, especially for weddings between May and September in 2011.

Spaces are limited because we only do two wedding which requires set ups per weekend to ensure the quality of our design.  To book a consultation with us, contact us at 604-709-0082 or email us at

If you would like to see our work at the Bling Wedding Show, it will be held at Nekkei Centre in Burnaby on November 14th, 2010. For more information, please visit  We hope to see you there! :)
