Kara and Alex.... The Most Adorable Couple!!!!!

Kara and Alex were amazing to work with!!! They are one of the couples that you see and know that they are going to be married forever! Kara had wanted a rich purple wedding with hints of nature twisted in. As she once told me, "I really like the look of weeds." The tables were extremely fun, all of them were pretty much different. Thank you Kara and Alex for choosing me to be apart of such a unique and fun day! Beautiful photos made possible by

Kate and her Dahlias

Kate just loved dahlias. It was that plain and simple. Not only that, she wanted the perfect shade of coral. Well working with Mother Nature, she decides the final shade. Mother Nature gave Kate her wedding wish that week! When I opened the box, I was gitty with excitement at how beautiful they were. I knew that Kate was going to be sooo excited. Thank you Kate for the new happy place you found me!

Thank you Ciulla Photography for capturing the perfect pictures!

40 Wonderful Years!

So I feel like I have been posting a whole lot of parties that I have on here. In theory, I just get the photos quicker thankfully to JMM Photography. So of course being a party person, I have to have parties! Well my In Laws are celebrating their 40th Wedding Anniversary this month and we had to have a wonderful party to mark the occasion. I was given the main decor marker from my son. He told me to make sure that I have plenty of red roses since that it is Momma JoJo's favorite. I couldn't disappoint my baby boy or Mother in Law. Many thanks to JMM Photography, Five Dot Design and Tres Belle Cakes to making a lifetime marker memorable!

What is the Definition of Glamour??

Back in June we were asked by the hilarious ladies of Events by WE to create a inspiration to reality shoot to define the word glamorous. Well it turned out amazingly beautiful! Main Styling completed by Events by WE, Photos shot by JMM Photography, Paper good crafted by 5 Dot Design, and florals of course by moi! Big thanks to Every Little Detail Blog for posting our combined style definition of Glamour! Check out the full pictures on the blog!

Every Show is Better with Coke and Popcorn

Jessica had already known exactly what she had wanted before she showed up on my doorstep. I absolutely love it when people personalize their wedding to make it fun and unique. Everything does not have to be typical. This reason alone is why I do not do "packages". I don't feel that every wedding should be the same exact way. Why do you want to look like Sally Sue's wedding from last weekend? Well needless to say, this was a completely adorable, thoughtful wedding. I mean hello look at how adorable the coke and popcorn treats were! I was glad that Jessica and Michael included me on such a special day. I want to also thank Nikita Gross Photography for telling the colorful story so picture perfect!

Fell Behind, but Welcome Fall

So I have been very behind on blogging anything lately. It has been a very busy time around here and I have so many beautiful photos to share. First up is The Bridal Affair on Fountain Square. As many know I share my office space with two amazingly talented vendors, JMM Photography and Creative Afflairs. We love to help each other out with each one of our own specialities. Jacalyn, JMM Photography, wanted to have the fun booth. She wanted a fall inspired space where she could hang smaller photos for people to get a taste of her work. Well this is how it turned out! I have been getting so many requests for this tree, yes it is rentable and it has a sister as well. Everything is always better in pairs! Oh and that is the ever so cute Jacalyn posing in front!

Sunny Side of Love

There are two things that you should know about me. One, it is hard to make me cry. I am a true Steel Magnolia. Two, I am fiercely in love with my family. When I saw these photos, the waterworks started. This was one of my favorite weddings. Not because of the abundance of beautiful flowers but because it was my dear cousin Sunny getting married. I do not think that I have ever meet two people that were truly each other's soul mate. Thank you for including me in such an important day. It was a true labor of love! Thank you DCM Photography for the eye candy!

Robot City

I just love doing children's parties. They are so much fun and most of the time bright!! Trey's little party was everything and more that a little kid could ask for in a Birthday Party. A Band, Candy, Make your own Robot, Balloons etc etc. Oh and the band, The Shazzbots, were completely amazing! Super fun and the kids (as well as the adults) loved them. Check them out on Facebook. Then of course the adorable toppers. A great way to add fun to your party. As always, another fun weekend in the life of parties! Happy Birthday Trey!!

Eclectic Essentials

We are trying out a new little venture and I hope that it is welcomed with open arms. In Cincinnati, there are few places that you can reach out to rent "unique items". This year we a thrilled to start out a rental service of antique or specialty items if you must give it a title. From milk glass and hobnail containers to 1970's Pepsi Machine (yes you heard me right), these items will for sure give your event the personal touch that is the rave these days. Once we get more photos of the items, there will be a "Eclectic Essentials" tab for you to view these one of a kind rentals. I love to provide my clients with a fresh approach to different and fun products. If this venture grows, so will the items.

Emily and Chris are Hitched!!!

Emily was an "on it" Bride. It was a perfect mix of feminine flowers with a masculine touch. Bright green, black and white were the colors for the day and it turned out beautiful. Thanks Emily for including me on such an important day. You were great to work with! Beautiful photography made possible by Patrick Banfield Photography.

A Very Un-Birthday Party!

So of course we are not only flowers here at Marti's Floral Designs. Basically overall event design sums up the bill. Any event from weddings to children's parties, we have it covered! Point in case Charlotte's little Alice in Wonderland Tea Party. The pictures beautifully describe the magical party. Studio N Photography once again outdid themselves with the fantastic photos.
