August?!! Already????

What's Up With That??


I just planted my summer flowers! I just stored all my winter clothes! I'm not ready for summer to be over half over! August is here and NYC that means two things, stifling heat and fall weddings are just around the corner. September marks the beginning of the fall wedding season and many couples covenant a date to start their happily ever after.

Pretty soon we will be experiencing the slight changes that bring you to the next season. The air will be a little crisper on your morning walk, and of course the leaves start to change colors. Fall doesn't mean that you have to go all the way with a theme of pumpkin patches and scarecrows, but the glorious colors of fall can give you a great starting point. Color! Color! Everywhere!

Now is the time to take advantage of every bloom in the universe and the treasure trove of gorgeousness! I think these fabulous long days call for special touches everywhere! You could be unique and quirky in your design, or just add those chic touches to bring the whole design together.

Beautiful, Brilliant Blossoms! They are works of art and entice us with their remarkable display. (Of course there is something to be said about the fabulous JG team who create them!)

Exciting and sparkling with fabulous deep colors, they catch the eye and turn up the corners of the mouth!

And we haven't even gotten to the center of things yet. This use of extraordinary combinations of blooms and hues is a tantalizing taste of things to come.

Using every surface available to enhance the design is just of the jes-isms used frequently in design. For example, why should a bar just be a bar when it can be a focal point? The idea that a service station can mimic its surroundings is both artistic and clever.

Still stunning, quiet and yet eye catching, these out of the way arrangements are arresting and natural. I must admit to being partial to the various genuses of flowers within, but while still traditional they are off the beaten path as well.

But let's not get too ahead of ourselves, it is still August and summer. So use those fabulous brights and pastels while you can. This time of the summer is so much fun, let it seep into your event. Just look what color can do for you!

Join JG in being brave! Try the unexpected and if you reject it, OK at least you tried. But I don't think you will because it reflects your own creativity and can end up being spectacular, especially if your event producer is JG!
