Blog Bliss: Style Me Pretty--> Yvonne

Guest posting for the wonderful (and new mom!) Abby of Style Me Pretty is Yvonne of Yvonne Event Florals and Decor in Hawaii. She posted two beautiful posts, so I went to check out her website.... and then had to find a napkin to wipe up my drool and also decided I needed to simply blog about the amazing things I had found all at once. The alternative to this blog post was probably 30 different emails to my bridesmaids and friends and family with "HOW AMAZING IS THIS!?!?!" subject lines.

Check out the amazing RANGE of these!

This one actually has me rethinking my current ceremony plans!! There is a grass knoll (read: old putting green) right next to our reception venue where we could do something like this. Oh - I should mention that I am normally not an orange fan. I LOVE THIS!!
Also, not a monochromatic fan. But I can't get over the different textures and lines through this that go beyond the need for multiple colors.
Never seen a flower that looks like coral before but I am loving that crazy little green thing!

And for the bride who wants a little more drama....
who would ever have thought that one floral designer could be so fantastic in such extremes!
More drooling.... More wondering why we didn't just go back to Hawaii to get married....
Funky! and yet beautiful... my favorite kind of style.

I have no idea what those little flower globes are hanging from but they have a great affect!!
I wouldn't normally copy and paste and entire bio, but this one not only tells you of her background, but it also describes her styles and abilities far better than I could... especia9lly since my4 dr00ling my hav3 affected my k3yb0ard. :)

From Yvonne's Bio:

Yvonne's passion for flowers developed early in life as she spent time between her family’s two floral design studios in her hometown in Washington State. Her unique and innovative style is influenced not only by the physical beauty of a flower, but also by its development and life process.

It was during Yvonne's studies in psychology at the University of Washington where her passion was taken to a whole new level as she was inspired by the power of a flower. She intuitively learned that flowers have the powerful ability to touch the senses: smell, touch and sight by recalling a memory, evoking emotion and creating an experience. This interplay is felt as she skillfully weaves artistry and emotion throughout her designs.

Before launching Yvonne Floral Design in Hawaii in 2002, Yvonne created floral designs for Donald Trump at his private club, Mar-a-Lago, in Palm Beach, Florida. It was designing for a plethora of celebrity events and weddings at Mar-a-Lago where her unique style truly blossomed.

Yvonne's love of color and texture is obvious, and her natural creative flair and stylistic approach allows her to constantly invent fresh and imaginative ways to incorporate flowers into special celebrations. Yvonne takes a simple idea and turns it into an exciting and distinctive floral piece beyond the imagination. Clients often collaborate with Yvonne's creative ideas to refine their individual style and to discover adventurous possibilities to customize their event.

Oh, did I mention that there are several other sections of the gallery I haven't even seen yet?!
The only thing missing... is a blog! Beautiful creativity like that deserves to be stalked! errr.... shared and read!

Me again, the green things are Midori Antheriums and the "coral" is Celosia. If you like Yvonne, you'll like Fong of Floral Inspirations.
