2018 and Ultra Violet and Veronica, Oh My!
Can You Believe These Wreaths?
Before I reveal what 2018, Ultra Violet, & Veronica have in common, I want to shout a big: Happy 2018, y'all! And, happy wedding year to all my 2018 brides - woot, woot! Can you believe your big day is almost here? :) :)
I always kick off the New Year with three major subjects: The announcement of Pantone's Color of the Year (that's the designer in me), business + personal goals, and bridal bouquet countdowns.

You're Invited! BH Summer Floral Workshop
On July 15, 2017, for the first time ever, we hosted a floral workshop in Blooming Hites' new studio. There were spirited chats, bloom ah-ahs, floral arranging, new friendship sparks, and lots of mimosas with yum-yums. We're still pinching ourselves to make sure it wasn't a dream.
Thank you to all the lovely ladies who made our first floral workshop an absolute blast! Y'all were so much fun - Can we hang out every Saturday? ;)

Fresh Blooms Brought to You By BH's Bloom Bar
It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve seen Snow White, I still route for her not to eat the poisonous apple. I know. I know, the poisonous apple leads her to true love’s kiss, but I can’t help but wish for a non-salty path to her Happily Ever After. Who routes for stress anyways?
Wedding Reception Trends for 2017 & 2018
Let’s paint a picture of your most sought after Saturday morning.
Blooming Hites Boutique...Is Open!
There’s no party like a reception party. Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn in “Wedding Crashers” can attest to that. ;) Although you and your soon to be hubby are anxiously counting down the hours to your honeymoon (let’s be honest), your wedding guests and wedding party are counting down the days until your happily ever after party.
Receptions are a big deal - Peering into a bride's Pinterest board will second that.

Ali & Austin's Wedding
With a midnight countdown and a pop, fizzle... Hello, 2017!
As we breathe in all the possibilities and opportunities that the next 365 days of the year will bring (hopefully not all in one breath), by nature, I’ve already started reveling in the new unveiling of Pantone’s Color of the Year. This year (drumroll please) the company announced the Color of 2017 is “Greenery.”
BH Video - Behind the Scenes
We were hashtag fated, and I’m so thankful for it. Bride Ali and I bloomed over Instagram and bonded effortlessly after our first design meeting. She’s an Atlanta graphic designer and having the opportunity to work with another creative was soul-lifting.
I took Blooming Hites in front of the camera for the very first time, and it was definitely an amazing experience. We chose to shoot our promo video at one of my favorite spots in Atlanta -- “The Hooch.” If you haven’t visited The Hooch yet, it’s absolutely calming and a beautiful backdrop.
