“We are in it for the love and devotion” ~ Adorations Botanical Artistry
Brides-to-be sought their style A-game at a special BHLDN pop up shop and wedding fair at UTC’s Anthropologie location in La Jolla. As an adoring fan of anything “Anthro,” we were beyond excited to be one of their featured vendors onsite during this special bridal event, showcasing a new collection of BHLDN bridal gowns and accessories.
Teaming up with our good friend, the always fashionable Lauren Rennie of Sweet Cheeks Baking Company, we styled a lusciously delicious farm table in the heart of the store with beautiful blooms and the tastiest treats. Lauren’s expertise in dessert styling placed Sweet Cheek’s BHLDN-inspired cake, monogrammed cookies and citrus cupcakes with lemon butter cream amongst our bounty of bohemian-inspired centerpieces and arrangements full of the season’s favorite: coral-charm & Sarah Bernhardt peonies, dinner-plate dahlias, anemones, and David Austen garden roses. A eucalyptus garland meandered across the entire table, adding an abundance of natural greens that lent so perfectly with the Anthropologie style.
Ladies perused the collection of stunning BHLDN gowns in romantic, bohemian and modern styles while sipping on the most adorable Sophia Mini cans of champagne. With so many gorgeous gowns to choose from, the fitting room was a flutter of brides-to-be dressed for their special day. To help them “complete the look” we had our signature Adorations bouquets on hand for them to feel as they may in that anticipated moment.
As a special token of love, Dear Darling, a San Diego-based calligrapher created the most darling name cards for every lady to take home from the evening’s gathering.
While this bridal event was one-night only, the pop-up shop for BHLDN, Anthropologie’s wedding collection, stayed in the store for the entire weekend. Of course, our bouquets and a few arrangements remained for the festivities and the green garland found its home (thanks to our Leo) draped above the entryway to the fitting room in absolutely perfect Anthro fashion.
