mauves and mules

From Cami of Treasured Heart Events “Floral design has always been an interest among my team at Treasured Heart Events. Rather than just do a simple floral design class ourselves, we partnered with Blushington Blooms to create a workshop, which quickly turned into a mini-styled shoot located at the BRIK Venue, a growing venue in downtown Fort Worth, Texas!”

From Cami of Treasured Heart Events – “Inspired by the copper trends within decor, we decided to focus on mauve tones that accent copper, and the perfect cocktail for this is, of course, a Moscow mule! We couldn’t just do any simple mule; we decided on a sweet blackberry mule, with hints of mint and lime. These colors went perfectly with the copper decor. We couldn’t resist adding in some fun flair with copper pineapple glasses.”

“We don’t do cliche here, so we opted to learn how to decorate an elevated arch we hand-crafted. We used hydrangeas, roses and Queen Anne’s lace, along with greenery to craft an elegant head table topper. Jayla and Brandi from Blushington Blooms led the class, showing how-tos, giving tips and tricks, and discussing floral trends, such as a growing desire for greenery. Just when we thought the class was wrapping up, my intern Cami asked about a floral crown, so we also learned how to piece together a floral crown!

After the floral class, we showed our guests how to style a head table, placing copper details, candles, and acrylic place cards with wine corks on the table to accent the freshly decorated arch.”

“We didn’t just stop there. While in the floral design workshop, our model was with Meagan, cosmetology extraordinaire, getting her hair and makeup done. She wore a figure-flattering mauve toned dress, donned a floral crown and carried a blackberry mule with pride.

The model’s exquisite features, the jaw-dropping dress and Rebecca Ellison’s photography angles provided a fresh perspective on the floral designs and copper-themed decor.

Elegant, unique, fresh, feminine, trendy and fun; what more could you want!”
