Patricia’s Pretty Petal Flower Shop

Good morning from sunny Florida! This week has been filled with lots of relaxation, pool/beach time and no schedules! It was a much need vacation and a great way to start the new year!

Since it is truly summertime here we thought it would be a perfect opportunity to share with you Patricia’s Pretty Petal Flower Shop photos from Kenny Kim

Evelyn, baby Patricia’s Mom, had a flower shop themed idea in mind and we couldn’t wait to put it together! My mom, Angie, and I have wanted to put together a flower shop theme event for years (before we even started Limani Designs) so it was such a treat putting this together for baby Patricia!

We kicked off the event with our Flower Cart. Guests found their names attached to flower stems in tall galvanized flower buckets. We went with playful pink chalkboards instead of the traditional black ones you find in flower shops.

The tables were made up of different looks including galvanized watering cans, clay pots and wooden planters with galvanized details. We went with burnt orange color linens to soften the very grey room but kept all the florals bright and cheerful.

If you have been following along for a while, you know that besides the welcome moment, the head table is always our favorite to design. This time we went with our tall fixture filled with colorful blooms and hanging candles.

We added fresh flowers to the cake and spread fresh greenery amongst the desserts. The traditional card box was replaced by a large flower shop bucket, we love when everything coordinates!

Here’s hoping for a short winter back home!

Brunch Blooms

The last day of the year calls for the last project of 2018! When our dear client Marina reached out for flowers for her beautiful dining room table for Christmas morning brunch with her family, we couldn’t be more excited! We first met Marina five years ago for her daughter’s Baptism and then again for her son’s Baptism two years ago.

For both events Marina has trusted us from invitations, here and here, to event design and fresh florals and it has been love at first meeting: ) We have been so lucky working with wonderful clients all these years and it was the perfect way to end the year.

For this arrangement we played off all the bright blooms found on the lovely Villeroy & Boch dinnerware set. We incorporated orange ranunculus, purple Dendrobium Orchids and sky blue Delphiniums. The dining room is beautiful and the pop of color was the perfect statement piece on the gorgeous mirrored top table. Since it was Christmas morning, we added different ornaments in the arrangement and fresh evergreens. Don’t the blooms scream happy?

We can’t thank you enough for following along this year, for all the likes, shares and love you continue to show us! We can’t wait to see what the New Year brings our way. Here’t to a happy and healthy New Year everyone! Happy 2019!!!

Christmas Table Decor

This holiday season dress your dining room table up with all the glitz and glam! This year Angie went with a gold, silver, red and green color palette with lots of sparkly details. 

First start with a sparkly runner. This one is actually a shawl…yes, a shawl! Here is a great example that would make a great runner 

Then add your chargers and dinnerware.  This collection is from Isabelle de Borchgrave Collection by Winterling.  We love how simple and understated this pattern is. Although these pieces are not available any longer, we have linked our two classic favorites if you are in the market to purchase new Christmas dinnerware here and here

From there, add all your decor down the center of the table. By keeping the decorative objects in the center of the table, you allow for extra space for family style dishes to be placed on either side of the place settings.

This year’s table is made up of lots of candlelight, ornaments, sparkly gold birds and twinkling lights. Have fun with the decor! Don’t be afraid to mix colors and textures.  

Use cake platters, glass candy jars and glass domes filled with little bottle brush trees, ornaments and star lights to add different height throughout the table. From the light fixture hang ornaments or snowflakes.

Use different glassware to create an eclectic look and colorful glassware, like these red wine goblets, to pick up the red from the dinnerware and napkins. 

We tied the napkins into a bow, tis the season for gift giving of course, and placed a snowflake on top to tie in the hanging snowflakes from above and voila! A simple yet festive table to enjoy with friends and family.

Easy as pie 😉 don’t you think? 

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas!

Holiday Cheer!

Tis’ the season for holiday parties and cheer! We were so excited to work with Jan and Dennis for the Porsche Club of America Chicago Region annual holiday party this year.  

Since Jan has a white Porsche we worked with a white, gold and silver color palette with lots of candles and pops of wintery fresh greenery at the Hyatt Lodge at McDonalds Campus.  

We added lots of silver, gold and white ornaments throughout the tables, including in the floral arrangements and white filled lanterns.

We have a few more holiday projects coming up and that will be a wrap for this year! 

Here’s to festive season ahead everyone!

Dimitra’s Darling Pumpkin Patch Baptism Celebration

Welcome to Dimitra’s Darling Pumpkin Patch Baptism Celebration!

We hope everyone had a lovely holiday weekend and if you find yourself in the Chicagoland area, we hope you are surviving the first snow storm of the season. As we pack up the pumpkins and all things fall, before the Christmas season is fully upon us, we wanted to share with you images from Dimitra’s Darling Pumpkin Patch Baptism celebration from a few weeks ago.

The whole event was made up of a beautiful burgundy, green and pink color palette with lots of gold accents and pumpkins everywhere! Wishing everyone a wonderful week ahead!
