Bringing dream events to reality in Upstate New York!


Franklin Plaza Troy

Color Evolution

Following last week’s bright posts, I figured we’d keep the color wheel spinning and showcase our latest Bridal Show display.
This display is from Franklin Plaza’s Marriage & Bridal Show, Celebrating Marriage for All which took place at the Plaza on Sunday, February 12, 2012.

We’ve participated in two shows this year and I have to say we have such a great time talking to couples, seeing what they’re interested in and building new relationships! Its also a great opportunity to design new themes and floral concepts without boundaries.

The ombré trend has been in full force lately, everything from clothes to nails and hair so it was only a matter of time until it hit the wedding scene. It is definitely a daring trend to try, but when you’re looking to draw attention the transition from
wedding white to fierce fuchsia certainly gets the job done.

Paddle balloons add height and a whimsical element to any celebration, think of the photo opportunities!

Color coordinated custom candy bar? Don’t mind if we do! Jars of all shapes and sizes, with an assortment of ribbons and labels help make these sweet treats even more appealing. Not that they needed it!

We were also very excited to show the print accessories we now offer. Our goal is to help our couples from start to finish and really make their vision complete.

Circle die-cut menus fit perfectly in our gold chargers!

We had such a great time at this show and we love any chance we get to show some of the ideas we’ve got cookin’. Lets face it any day you can be surrounded by this much pink is a good day in our book. Hope we inspired you!

Love in Noir


The absence of color leaves room for so much more. Ashley and Brandon were married on November 5th of last year, and their fall wedding was full of  classic glamour. Their black and white palette was crisp, and combined with Ashley’s choices of calla lilies and roses the details added up to a very elegant affair. Again, Franklin Plaza transformed really embracing the sharp color story and the gold flatware was a very chic touch! If you need any indication on how truly big this day was, take a peak at Ashley’s dress… it was grand! The event looked fabulous and so did they, love the last photo of them being introduced as the new Mr. and Mrs. Hill, adorable!

A February to Remember

Since we are a new blog, there will never be a shortage of photos! We have been doing events for years. While I wait to get images back from events of this month, take a peak at a few that I had handy. As we welcome in March, FINALLY! let’s say farewell to February with one of the most stunning weddings I had the opportunity to decorate last year at the Franklin Plaza!

Please notice the resurgence of the “head table”, so much fun to decorate!
