My good friend Ashley (who just so happens to be the genius behind my logo design) was throwing a surprise birthday bash for her moms 60th birthday. It was to be held at Anis et Marjolaine in St-Lazare, a small quaint restaurant run by head chef and owner Alvaro. The centrepieces were to be kept simple, natural, and in tones of white and green with a few splashes of lavender. We were on a bit of a tighter budget for this one, so we picked up bunches of fresh parsley from the market, and ran with the theme of alstro, white tulips, sprigs of lavender, birch branches and soft asparagus fern.
If you have never been to the fabulously delicious Anis et Marjolaine in St-Lazare I definitely recommend checking it out. They have a fabulous terrace, and a delicious brunch on the weekend perfect for summer weekends.
Here is their website for those of you who are curious:

Yes I am a floral designer and yes my logo does have a fox on it. This may seem strange, but there is a lot more to that little fox than meets the eye. It represents love, affection, my childhood and now hopefully my exciting future in my new business adventures. The Fox, also known as Mon Petit Rouge, was a character in a show that my best friend Simon and I used to watch as children. Rouge is now officially what I have been called for as long as I can remember, so it seemed only natural to incorporate it into the name of my company, as well as the logo design. The flower that is represented on the logo is a dahlia which just so happens to be my favorite flower. The wide range of textures, size and colour creates a very deep appreciation for just how wonderful flowers are, well at least I think so.
A special thank you must be given to my very talented friend, Ashley West for all her hard work helping me with the design, without her this would never have been possible. She is an amazing graphic artist and illustrator. Here is a link to some of her work in case some you readers out there are interested.
