Bragspot: White Poppy featured in Arizona Bride magazine


One of the fun things about being in the wedding flower biz is being recognized in publications.


White Poppy has been featured in the latest issue of Arizona Bride magazine. This wedding was an absolute blast to do! It was at one of my favorite locations- The Royal Palms Resort here in Phoenix. I collaborated with the ever-so-fun and fabulous wedding coordinator Cicely of Life Design Event Planning. The brides color scheme was hot pink and bright green, her flowers were a mixture of orchids, miniature calla lilies, hydrangea and roses.


We chose to put cut limes inside her glass centerpieces.


The fabulous photographer that worked on this wedding was Rebecca of Rebecca Bouck Photography. She was so professional and the pictures turned out amazing.


Check out this beautiful monogram custom designed for them by Wonderful Graffiti.



Thanks for stopping by and listening to me brag!

Warm regards,


Bragspot: It’s great to be back

Hello everybody and thanks for your patience, it’s great to be back in the swing of blogging. This past June I was faced with some serious health problems with my son. It has been a trying summer but we are all doing much better now. I thought that my blog should take second fiddle for a while as my family is just too precious to me and needed all of my attention. Life has a way of mellowing out and I am glad to be back into the swing of life again with some healing time behind me.

Now onto some good stuff, like bragging…….he he.

I am pleased to announce that White Poppy has been featured in a national magazine, the summer issue of The Bride and Bloom.


I got a very exciting phone call this past spring from Liene Stevens of the ever-so-popular blog Blue Orchid Designs and owner of Splendid Communications. She asked me if I would like to collaborate with her on a photo shoot that involved the color yellow and featured lemons as a focal point. We decorated a rustic wood table with gorgeous trifle bowls filled with fresh flowers and lemons.





I was also asked to create an adorable bridal bouquet. Since our colors were predominately yellow, I chose daffodils to be my main flower, I also chose to wrap it with the cutest green gingham ribbon. This bad boy got a full page.


Well, once again glad to be back. So visit me this week for Floral Friday when I will be talking about an unusual flower called Chinese Lantern.

Warm Regards,
