A Westin Colonnade Wedding

July 6, 2013 – 11:02 am

Hotel,Coral Gables
Last weekend we decorated a wedding at the classic Westin Colonnade Hotel in Coral Gables. We used soft hues of white, blush, and light green for an elegant, romantic feel to this ceremony and reception.

We decorated the ceremony site with white and ivory flowers and a crystal garland to compliment the crystal Chiavari chairs.

The bride carried a cascading bouquet of Cattleya Orchids, Cymbidium Orchids, Dendrobium Orchids, Phalaenopsis Orchids, and Stephanotis.

The bridesmaids had nosegays with cream and antique pink Roses, light peach Spray Roses, and white Freesia.

We decorated the ceremony steps with candlelight - this is where the bride makes her entrance before walking down the aisle.

The place card table was decorated with a bed of Hydrangeas, Roses, Orchids, and Lilies, with Manzanita branches decorated with Orchid heads, hanging candles and crystals.

In the reception area we created three different designs for the tables, all featuring a mix of Hydrangeas, Roses, Orchids, Spray Roses, Stock, and Hanging Amaranthus.

To decorate the fountain, the main focal point of the room, we placed a tall centerpiece with Hydrangeas, Orchids, and Curly Willow branches with hanging candles, Rose petals and Gerbera Daisies in the water, and votive candles around the ledge.

Here are a few pictures of the Rotunda ballroom. It's a breathtaking setup, especially with the pin lights highlighting each table and all the votive candles lit.

We were so pleased to be a part of this lovely celebration! Best wishes to bride and groom Llynette and Wajih!

Yep, they'll do a number on geranium flowers

And also petunias, and other ornamental tobacco family plants. There's a good little article from Sunset on the problem here:
Looks like you can use the "organic" Bacillus (BT) for control besides picking each little worm out of there. BT's about the only thing to spray on anyway, since the pest is apparently notoriously immune to insecticides.


Look on leaves for little brown flecks if u find them, u most likely have budworms. the flecks r their poop. they destroy flowers,buds and leaves. I have recently seen japanese beetles obliterate the poor plants in two days. try spraying water lightly over plants and then quickly scan for moving insects, as this may help to identify them..or...shake plant over a bag and see if a bug drops in. this can he also help identify. could b slugs if there is mulch near . check soil on ground or pot for snails ,slugs etc. I hand pick most slugs,snails, and beetles and have good results.good luck
