If you read last week's post, you know that Tracey and I whipped up a batch of fun bouquets for an event at Engaged Wedding Library marking the fourth annual "Bouquet Day." Today I thought I'd share some photos by Stacy Richardson from the day and add a snippet of back-story on why Engaged has such a special place in my heart.
When Engaged first opened, Lillie's shared an office with the "Engaged girls" in the little sun room at the Engaged cottage on Oxmoor Road. With all-girl tenants in the house we were like a bunch of college roommates -- and even shuffled around once or twice as roommates do.
As business grew, Lillie's moved to a second office at Engaged -- a butler's pantry boasting built-in shelves and sweet glass front cabinets where I displayed all of my treasures. This was the location of the second official "Bouquet Day."
That first year I made these tiny bouquets to match my tiny office where they all lined up quite nicely on the butler's pantry shelves.
If you look closely you can see the bouquet descriptions on the shelves.
This year's "Bouquet Day" has grown and so have our bouquets! While the first event featured a handful of local floral designer's, this year the number of designers participating has doubled from the first Bouquet Day.
And though Lillie's has a home of its own now, we still got to spend some time with our friends Katie and Stephanie (The engaged girls) creating this window display for "Bouquet Day 2012" at their wonderful new location on Oxmoor Road in Homewood.
It's always great to see the variety and imagination of the designers. After all, there is no such thing as "one size fits all" when it comes to a bride's bouquet!
Bride's-to-be got to hold and have their picture made with dream bouquets, and there was something for every style and budget this year.
. . . before you know it we will be planning our bouquets for Bouquet Day 2013!
