Photo Feature: Larissa and Derek by Jerry McGaghey

We can't wait for Larissa and Derek's wedding at the Crosley Mansion in Sarasota next month! They are such a fun couple and their wedding is going to be so beautiful.
We also can't wait to work with photographer Jerry Mcgaghey again. He recently shared with us some of Larissa and Derek's engagement photos taken around the University of Tampa and downtown, and as usual we were so impressed by his unique and modern style. Here are some of my favorite photos from their session!

A Sweet Safari Baby Shower

Last weekend while Beth and Christina were busy with 2 weddings, I traveled down to Miami to create a baby shower for my best friend, Marty. She wanted a jungle/safari themed shower to reflect her and her husband's love of animals. I surprised her with a candy buffet favor table for her 35 guests which also highlighted the beautiful 2-tiered animal print cake made my Candy's Sweets and Treats. The cake was delicious and Candy's Sweets and Treats are also well known for their adorable cake pops which will ship nationwide starting this holiday season, so check her out. The candy buffet featured animal print chinese takeout boxes, a variety of candy in greens and browns, and adorable animal head lollipops. Of course I had to add some safari animals around too, which will be future toys for baby Landon. It was really fun putting on a different type of event since we typically just do weddings, and in fact Beth has an upcoming baby shower she is also planning for one of our fabulous former clients. It's so exciting to be included in our clients' lives as they enter the next phase of their lives.

Here are some photos I snapped to share "Landon's Sweet Safari" candy buffet table. Enjoy!

Welcome to Tampa, Puff 'N Stuff!

Last week the Flawless Occasions girls were invited to a very intimate tasting with Puff 'N Stuff Catering. Althought Puff 'N Stuff has been a premiere caterer in the Orlando area for many years, they have just recently opened a Tampa branch to serve this side of I4. We are so excited to be able to recommend this caterer to our brides and grooms now! Our friend Amy Brace (formerly of Brides Florida magazine) has now joined the Puff 'N Stuff team and invited us to this special event at their headquarters in the T. Pepin Hospitality facility.
We were so pampered at this tasting, and the food was just as fabulous as the presentation. Puff 'N Stuff prides itself on creating innovative dishes that look just as good as they taste. From the cesar salad with the personal mini cheese grater to the lobster mac and cheese (which was my favorite by the way), each dish kept topping the previous one. We were also so appreciative of the beautiful, personalized cutting boards that were given to each of us with our names carved in (you can see this photo towards the bottom) - it was such a personal touch!
Thank you to Amy and the Puff 'N Stuff crew who put together such a delicious and wonderful tasting event; we can't wait to collaborate with you in the future! I took some photos - enjoy! :)
