We are delighted to be featured in the Fall/Winter 2010 issue of Soirees Southern Events. The articles include our new event venue, Sutton Mill, in Clarkesville, Georgia and the gorgeous wedding of Brandon & Adrienne Worley at the Mill. We blogged about the Farm inspired Nuptials of Ashley & Garland Smith in the spring and the wedding made a perfect feature for the magazine. Visit http://www.soireessouthernevents.com/

Last week, our team spent a few of our mornings volunteering for the Senior Citizen Services. What a rewarding non-profit organization (click here
to visit the website)!! We spent the first morning delivering Meal on Wheels to disabled senior citizens in the city. Our floral team made a special arrangement for each one of the seniors that we delivered along with the meals. The seniors enjoyed the flowers to their fullest and we enjoyed putting a smile on their faces. The second morning was spent packing the meals for the Meals On Wheels Program. We packed hundreds of meals and wish to express our gratitude to the dedicated staff at the center. Check out our pictures below to see our team in action.

On Saturday, May 8th at the Intercontinental Buckhead Hotel, The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
(JDRF) held their annual gala. The gala is infamous for raising record breaking amounts of money for JDRF and this year was no exception as they raised over $1 million dollars! Our Creative Director, Steve Welsh, took center stage as the event designer. This year, he wanted to go for more of a contemporary feeling but maintain a tradition, timeless design.
A plethora of silver, acrylic, wire and glass spheres were at the center of the design. The large tent that was placed in the courtyard at the Intercontinental was centered with a dramatic element of dripping spheres hanging over a sixteen foot table. Orchids were then carefully placed around the dramatic centerpiece.
The guest tables were draped in gorgeous “Fairmont Taffeta” from Party Tables. The centerpiece was a classic cluster of white Hydrangea with white Phalaenopsis Orchids placed sporadically in the arrangement.
The bar consisted of 16 of our lit bar tops with a long, skinny table in the center of the bar that held another magnificent arrangement of Phalaenopsis Orchids and silver, acrylic, wire and glass spheres. Of course, we added the proper ambient lighting with floating and votive candles.
The event was a fun and exciting evening. We were honored to have been chosen to do the event décor and serve as a sponsor for JDRF. This years gala brings JDRF one step closer to finding a cure for Juvenile Diabetes. Many thanks to the supporters and other sponsors!!

On January 24, 2010, we were part of a bridal show at the Four Seasons Hotel in Midtown Atlanta. The Bridal show was titled “A Bride for all Seasons” and we choose to represent the summertime (so appropriate for us Atlanta natives)!!
We have all heard that the “HOT” color this season is a bright, canary yellow. One of our talented Event Designers, Amy Saltzman, created a beautiful canary toned summer wedding that she called “A Legendary Summer.” Amy took this to a new level using fresh lemons, a plethora of yellow Forsythia branches, beautiful Sunflowers and soft yellow Oncidium Orchids.
The mixture of all these yellow elements along with green moss, White Dendrobium Orchids, Hydrangea and gorgeous burch trees was the perfect combination to make you feel like you were in a summer bliss!!! For more photos taken by the lovely Nancy Jo McDaniel, enjoy this gorgeous slide show http://www.njmphotography.com.temp.livebooks.com/data/web/ALegendarySummer/index.html.
We would also like to thank Heather from Atlanta Occassions for mentioning A Legendary Event in her blog post “Inspired by this: yellow, yellow, yellow!” She commented that we acheived our summer creation with “flying YELLOW colors”. Thanks for the compliments Heather!!
