Thursdays are usually for a SUPRISE SHOUT OUT to another ETSY shop that I have done business with for product and service review. This week I decided to break from the usual and give my shop, designs by Leah R. Hood aSHOUT OUT, something I have not done since starting this blog.
Spring is upon us and with spring comes wedding season, which per the linked CNN article starts Memorial Day weekend and carrys through September. I have developed a true love for everything wedding; I was a do-it-yourself bride from the invites, programs, veil, to my own fresh floral arrangements, bouquets, & boutonnieres. Weddings cost most of us a small fortunate, and I like to find unique and clever ways to not only help make these wonderful occasions more cost effective, but also add some unique personal touches. Over the last year, I have been developing off-beat and alternative bouquets and boutonnieres for my store and today I would like to share some of the items that are currently for sale or that I have recently sold. These are perfect for a more traditional wedding, destination wedding, pretty much ANY wedding!
To the left and below are pictures of a recent custom bridal party order in Lemon Meringue Pie for a destination wedding in Las Vegas. The bride has a gorgeous 8 flower origami bouquet with pinwheel accents, and the party each has either a pinwheel bouquet or boutonniere. I love the color as it will pop in photos, especially against the kelly green dresses of the bridal party!
