Fetching Backsides

Do we ever grow weary of cheeky wordplay? Never.

But truly, we've been running into some of the best looking bouquet bottoms lately. It's great to have a good side, but let's face it, in this three dimensional world it's nice to look good from every angle.

And yes, that's our new BFF, baby's breath.
And yes, those are carnations. Yes, that's their natural color. And yes, definitely, the mint green velvet ribbon feels as good as it looks.

Kudos of the Day

We did a gorgeous mod/preppy/cheeky/classic wedding this weekend at the St. Thomas Chapel and the White Bear Yacht Club (Go Bears!). We were surprised to find our friend Sara of Mitrebox had been in attendance, when she sent us her complements:

I was at a wedding this past Saturday at the preppy WBL Yacht Club. I was super admiring the floral arrangements and taking all kinds of photos of the hydrangea, white rose, peony combos. And how each table was similar, but not the same....come to find out an hour later - YOU did them!!!

The Conzemius/Metcalf wedding was lovely.


Monique Lhuillier Trunk Show Preview

Brides in the know will be at the Monique Lhuillier trunk show tomorrow to try on the freshest and hottest in wedding dresses. They'll also be able to "try on" our bouquets, which we are lovingly creating as we speak. We're feeling cherry at the moment, so you'll see lots of cherry red, fuchsia, and verging on goth black-reds. The Monique Lhuillier store is at 50th and France, dangerously close to Anthropologie, if you ask us. Bring your hot momma with you, too -- their Mother of the Bride dresses are stunning!

The Band Version of Bastian+Skoog

Our friend Kristina Halvorson of Brain Traffic, sent us this video of the Ditty Bops, referring to them as "the band version of Bastian+Skoog". If only. How cute are they?

Saturday August 16th is the 7th Annual Square Lake Film and Music Festival.  We can't make it (wedding season), but we'd love to live vicariously through you.  Square Lake is our best kept secret -- if it's nice out and we're not in the studio, it's a fair bet that we're at Square Lake eating ice cream sandwiches, floating in the friendly weedless waters, and gettin' our tans on.  This year's lineup includes Happy Apple, Black Blondie, the Owls, and the wildly talented Spaghetti Western String Company (with whom we spent maybe the most painful Fourth of July of all time.)

Get 'em before he eats 'em

House dog, Luca's pick of the week are these fabulous calla lilies for sale at Surdyk's for $35/10 stem bunch.  This is a crazy great price on callas, as these can often run three or four times that.

Carnation Cuties...

Our fair Lindsey is just about to bring these little carnation cuties over to Surdyk's.  If you're quick, you can meet her there and pick one up for $14.99.  $14.99?  We might buy them ourselves.  If you've got someone to impress, we have lovely white dendrobium orchids there for the weekend, too.
