Well...She's finally done! I picked up the flowers at 9am this morning and was at the hall at 9:30...where I waited until 10:30 for somebody to let me in! *sigh*. (My own fault, though...I was being a keener;) I wasn't sure what to expect for flower work, as I was only told that I'd be given an assortment of "Fall Flowers". I was pretty sure I wouldn't be given a potted Mum...but othewise was in the dark. So - I picked up the topper (which is adorable btw - check out it's cuteness!) and a bundle of loose flowers to work into the cake design. It was a little more of a challenge then I had expected, but it was a super fun one too! With the assortment I was given, I managed to work it into 3 separate arrangements that I worked around the cake.
1 was a lilly arrangement...This was made up with the flowers that were left over from the other 2 groupings. It's at the "back" of the cake.The other 2 were made with Gerber Dasies, roses and fillers, but I love how they turned out too!
I'm always a little unsettled when I drop off a cake - but I think that is probably my que that it turned out well. If I walked away pleased as punch with myself, I've probably gotten too confident!. I do think, though that the cake turned out very well. I absolutely adore the flowers, and think that they make the cake!
So - are you ready to see her?? :)
I have to say...I think it's one of my favorites to date. :)
