teejay's own - wedding decorations

i know.. i know... i haven't updated my blog for 2 weeks. i apologize. but i had such amazing and exciting 2 weeks because i was working on this wonderful project - decorating a wedding! this post is not directly related to furniture or home decor, but i decided to show you what i had done for this wedding. sorry there's no professional photos in this post though.the bride is one of my best friends; it was truely my pleasure to become her wedding decorator and coordinator. i have designed furniture, interior spaces, gardens and show booths but the only wedding decorations that i designed was my own. it was great to know that she had such faith in me. we all know how it is - all girls want beautiful weddings in spite of the sizes of the weddings. the more she trusts me, the bigger pressure i put on my own shoulders. i promised to give her something a bit different from what she has seen in other weddings. the boutonniere shown above was designed for the groom, bestman & the parents.

this boutonniere is designed for the ushers and the MCs.


'teejay's flower shop' - all the flowers in my kitchen. getting ready to work on them.


the bride's bouquet. this fragrant bouquet is consisted of lisianthus, salal leaves and a variety of roses.


i created this simple and light bouquet for the maid of honour. used lisianthus, roses, and salal leaves - same as the bride's flowers.


2 flower arrangements on the sanctuary's center stage. i wanted to give a bit of decorous feel in the santuary, so i kept the colours to the minimal. still wanted elegance and not overly festive. i chose lilies, snapdragons, carnations, roses, and hydrangeas. submerged aspidistra leaves to cover up the messy stems in the vase.


teejay working on the 'cones' for the pews. after the ceremony, we transferred all these flowers from cones to glasses; re-used them as the centerpieces for the banquet in the evening. for those of you who extremely dislike baby's breath (i'm one of you), you can consider of using waxflowers instead. bigger and more interesting blooms makes fuller arrangements but less lacey (cheesy).


aisle runner with rose pedals (required by the bride). glued rose pedals and rhinestones on the runner to form their initials.


pew flowers and sparkly initials.


garland and ribbons for the sanctuary entrance.


festive flower wreaths for the church entrance. used carnations and spray chrysanthemums. thanks to my favorite 3M Command adhesive and hooks, we could easily hang these wreaths on the glass doors.


flower arrangement at the santuary entrance to welcome guests. the droplets of roses enchoed the bride's bouquet.


centerpiece for the head table. i named this 'sushi.'


flowers are connected by the fishline for the wedding car decorations. we are car lovers - absolutely against sticking pom pons on cars. no sticky substance was used on the car surface.


the couple decided to give daffodil bulbs as their wedding favours. we put them in brown bags, printed the thank-you's and planting instructions on colourful paper


anquet setting. we reused every bloom to decorate the restaurant. that beautiful artistic cake topper was made by the groom! it's the bride with her violin, the groom with his artist brush and their puppy.


place cards. i stapled satin ribbons onto a canvas with wood frame then slipped the place cards between the ribbons and the canvas. the couple can use the them as bulletin boards after the wedding.

congratulations to my dear friends! i love you guys!

Those floweral arrangement were so nice. I am sure they must be thankful to have you to help them to decorate everything. I helped out with some flower arrangement on the reception tables a month ago for the daughter of my mom's friend. Man, i have to tell you it was " a lot" of work to finish all the flower arrangement. There were only 24 that been assigned to 4 of us but it took us a whole day to finish them. It takes a lot of effort to turn them into beautiful arrangment.

Girl... You have done a wonderful job. congrat to the newly wed couple

Hey guys!

I know some folks here who have gotten results with Male-Extra penis enhancement pills. Im just about to order as i've been hearing amazing results with it. But first off, I want to know if Male Extra does it work as good as they say it does?

I know 1-2 inches Penis growth is realistic and easily accomplished. But I'd like REAL FAST penis growth in the 5 inches range. Dont laugh, I want to have the best penis growth possible because my new girlfriend dated a friggin porn stud!

Guys here know what im talking about?

I want...no make that I NEED to know the best way to enlarge Penis. Male-extra pills promises 3 inches growth within several weeks or they return your money. So I guess that essentially means, if my penis dont grow real fast? They lose money, coz I got to use the pills at the same time get my money back right?

Does this seem like a scam?

Please reply at the soonest possible time!
I need to make a decision fast!

Im already sold on it to be honest, but I just need that one last push so I dont put this off any longer.


The advertisement for the pill I last saw at this site. I hope its still there.

Interesting! I have noticed that similar types of air crafts are being developed in the last couple of years! I wonder what this trend is all about.
