2016 Wedding Flowers at the Pink Bridal Show Chattanooga

2016 was kicked off with a fabulous Pink Bridal Show at the Chattanooga Convention Center. The show was hugely successful, with 27 bookings in the 2 months since.  As I prepare for the upcoming busy spring wedding season,  I am thankful and thrilled that I am on track to double my business again this year.   Thank you Chattanooga for loving my work as much as I do!  Here are some images of the designs I created for the January show this year.   All photos and flower designs by Tami McAllister.

Design Inspiration

I had the opportunity to attend an "Art and Design Demonstration"  in Atlanta a couple of weeks ago.   The presenter's name was Joseph Massie.  He is 26 year old, from the UK, and has won gold medals in the Chelsea Flower Show for the last 5 years in a row.   These type of design shows are such an inspiration!   I left at the end of a lovely afternoon full of ideas and new knowledge about great techniques to try.    Of course I took plenty of pictures so I can share the beauty (and remember the ideas and techniques I so admired)!

My personal favorite.  This is made out of preserved roses!  A super lightweight, absolutely stunning bouquet that will last forever.  I hope I get the chance to make one soon.

Classic style table scape with beautiful silver containers, ivory, white and green flowers.  Similar to my classic style I think, but a bit messier.

More of an art piece design.  I love the texture and lines.  I can't imagine spending that amount of time, unless it was made with permanent botanicals though.

Definitely more of an art installation type piece, which I can't imagine having the time for...  very showy though.

Handbag styles that could work as something different for bridesmaids.
