When my favorite local flower shop, Diamond Florist contacted us (this past weekend) asking for giant bright balloons, we were intrigued! As a stylist I’ve never turned down a challenge but I have to say, this was quite the project! They wanted four dozen hand-decorated balloons, in well, here’s the catch, just under five days! It made for a very busy long weekend, but in the end, it was well worth it and the balloons were a HUGE hit!
The 36 inch giant (latex) balloons were so much fun to work with, and made for a fantastic window display at Diamond Florist. These bright and frilly balloons are a great compliment to any occasion, as they add a burst of colour, and bring a whole lot of fun.
Here are a few photos I grabbed (with my iPhone), before they went flying out the door.
With Valentine’s Day just one week away, it’s no surprise that many of you ladies are on the look out for the perfect red dress. I spent the afternoon strolling the South Granville shops, followed by a quick stop to Robson street (umbrella in hand), and found quite a few red dresses, that can add value & colour to any wardrobe. My picks are dresses that can be worn from day-to-night. I find you can really primp up these looks with the right accessories, and create a more party look (to wear at night). From lace, sheer tulle, bandage, to flowy skirts, a red dress is a must for any wardrobe, and the perfect choice for a Valentine’s lunch with girlfriends or a romantic dinner with your beau.
