Part of my flower dilemma was that I did not know what I really wanted. I was going with eggplant purple as an accent color along with some moss green and chocolate brown, but that was about it. To further complicate things, it was New Year's Eve - what flowers are "in season" then?!? After going through a number of ideas and starting to figure out what what I did and did not want (more of the latter than the former), the appointments ended and my mom and I went on our merry ways and awaited the estimate.

|Flowers from Nick|
The bridemaids bouquets were similar in style, just a bit smaller. I had her add some greenery and berries, but nothing to Christmas-y, just to add a bit of a wintery feel. Doing New Year's Eve without being kitschy (i.e., too much ice blue, silver and gold) is tough.
Nick also worked with Jacqui and surprised me with an amazing (unprompted) bouquet of some of my favorite flowers and colors. It was such a treat to walk into the bridal suite and see them first thing. At first I was not sure who they were from, but the card with a sweet message let me in on the secret.
With the rest of the decorations, Willowdale did not need much to enhance the space. The house was already decorated with the holiday spirit with some garland and soft white lights to accent it. With all the woodwork, it did not need much else.
