Thanksgiving 2012

 As we near the end of the year we want to do a re-cap of our fabulous 2012 holiday season. I'd like to start with Thanksgiving. This year at The Club at Carlton Woods we amazed the crowds with a full, lucious and absolutely divine giant cornucopia. This beautiful showpiece was overflowing with lilies, mums, antique green hydrangea, flat copper wire, roses, cabbage, lotus pods, bitter sweet and other fun textures. It was a sight to behold!
 The shell of the cornucopia was decorated with curly willow, lilies, lotus pods and copper accents. And the front, well, you couldn't miss it and had to take a long look inside to see all the wonderful goodies.
 Like any fabulous party you can't have just one centerpiece, especially in a venue as large and fabulous as The Club at Carlton Woods. This beautiful buffet arrangement in a sweeping cornucopia design was filled with roses, wheat, millet, hanging amaranthus, mums, and spiders all in rich autumn tones.

Here are a few of the lovely ladies who worked on this event! Like I've said before if you can dream it we can do it, and if you don't want to think about it then let our creative minds soar for you. These are the kinds of beauties we are inspired by.
 Another buffet table was decorated with this more traditional and full arrangement. With white manzinita branches intertwined with the arrangement it created fun lines and a great focal. The other flowers in this arrangement are mocara orchids, roses, spider mums, pom poms, solidago, hydragea and croton leaves accented by pumpkins.
And of course each table had their own miniature cornucopia filled with a variety of rich autumn colors, minature roses, mums, wheat and croton leaves.
