Wednesday, March 7th will be my first Bridal Show. PlanIt Expo – Radisson Hotel Freehold, NJ
I am really excited. I have been working hard on sample sashes, a few fascinators, bird cage veils and door prizes…..
I had a great time last weekend making button carnations with silk ribbon and dutchess satin flowers. Spent time appliqueing lace and beads on a sample sash. Trying to decide which gowns I will show. Creating promotional material and getting photos together.
This is my first blog, I do not know what I am doing, but hopefully, each of you will bear with me as I begin this new journey.
As I go along I hope to share with you my passion for creating beautiful Gowns, Beading, specialty Embellishments, Roses, Gardening, Cooking and of course, my 2 crazy dogs.
The roses on the header are Roses in The Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden in New York City. The Jersey Shore Rose Society (which I am President and member) took a trip there a few years ago. It was a lovely day and we had a great time.
As some of you know I create custom Couture Bridal Gowns. About 16 years ago, my husband and I moved to New York so I could follow my dream of one day owning my own Studio and creating these beautiful gowns. After many years of attending The Fashion Institute of Technology in New York in the evening, I have finally begun to pursue my passion.
The gown pictured here is my Second Bridal Gown that I made. The first was my own bridal gown when I got married many moons ago.
