r 2010, I noticed a lot of deep purple, which is the cover “Celebrations.”

Q: Do you have any do’s & don’ts for centerpieces?

A: I treat my centerpieces as dramatic statements full of layers and surprises. I love to create a piece that not only has great flowers but shows tons of intricate details. I tend to keep away from anything that looks too forced. Besides that, the sky is the limit. One can have a great deal of fun constructing centerpieces.

Q: You say “beauty is in the details.” Any suggestions for keeping details top of mind when brides have so many things to plan and keep track of?

A: I think that the bride should keep in mind that the beauty of all details are what her team and staff and various folks will execute for her. She simply needs to share her vision and lets us worry about all those wonderful details. Of course, if she is working alone, a trusted friend or freelance wedding organizer for the day could be a great tool.
