Marley of The Party Goddess and I are in the same women's business group (SMARTY), and follow each other on the social media circuits. She's a powerhouse business woman, author, and many more dashes than that. I had so much fun watching a video about her on her accompanying business website. On a totally unrelated note, while perusing her blog, she mentions her love for apple cider vinegar. I've started using an Aztec Clay mask (you can buy it at Whole Foods for $7) that you mix equal parts with apple cider vinegar. I had no idea the health benefits of taking a shot of the vinegar until just now! Thanks Marley! And now back to the shower...
What drew me to this centerpiece was the lushness of the grass and how the flowers pushed it on different angles. I'm sure used to seeing wheat grass perfectly neat with flowers poking out from them. I love how natural, yet put together this looks and how tall the grass is-- so fresh and clean! She used a mix of exotic (lotus pods, coxcomb) and regular flowers (tulips, orchids) in a soothing palette of yellows and greens.
From Marley, the Head Goddess of them all, "The bridal shower for a super hip, sassy chick who wanted something elegant and modern but with a cheerful pop of color. Attendees were treated to mani/pedis and mini massages so we were trying to incorporate some Zen like colors for relaxation without getting too literal."
