Weekend Update July 17-18

We had a super busy weekend here at RBK Creations. The busy schedule has definitely extended into today. I think this is the first time I have had a chance to sit down since I woke up this morning. I was able to snap a few pictures over the weekend of bouquets in the works as well as finished orders.

The first order we finished was a great color combination for a bride in Australia. Our Australian brides have been so fun to work with! The colors are inspired by a plant called the Australian Bush. There is a pink, green and silver color incorporated into the bouquets. We also included a lot of sparkle and ‘bling’.

This is the bride’s bouquet. I love the intricate stitching on the middle flower and the rhinestone button on the bottom flower!

This is a Bridesmaid Bouquet. Check out that rhinestone bow button!

I also got a good start on a Satin Bouquet order. This is also a great color combination. It is red, black, gold and leopard print! Very sassy! I was able to find a great leopard print satin as well as some leopard ribbon that will be a nice accent. I was able to finish up the toss bouquet, bride bouquet and the pillow was made a couple of weeks ago. Once the order is completed, I will post those as it will definitely be a fun mix!

I added some ivory felt accent flowers into the bride bouquet.

I have been working with someone locally to create a bouquet for a photo shoot she is doing. I showed a teaser last week of her bouquet. This weekend I was able to get it finished up! I am going to meet with her tomorrow and can’t wait for her to see it in person. It is really a jewel tone dream!

It is hard to see in the small photo, but there are some great rhinestone buttons in this bouquet as well. (note to self, fix blog layout to allow larger photos!!!)

Another order I was able to start on was a fall order. There will be shades of orange, purple, ivory and other fall colors. The bridesmaids will be carrying a felt pomander that will be accented with tulle and stems of buttons. I was able to get one of them started (no tulle or buttons yet). The bride’s bouquet will be embroidered.

These are a lot of fun to make!

Lastly, I was able to start on a cherry blossom inspired wedding. For some of the pieces in her order I used these awesome 3-D buttons I have. There are shades of pink, a turquoise color and brown. She wanted the bouquet very full so we opted for a satin collar around the bouquet. The satin is a very pretty medium pink color. I should have the other pieces done soon as well. I really love these colors together!

It was such a sunny day yesterday everything looks so bright. I guess that is what you get with the 100 degree Texas sun!

I hope everyone else had a good weekend! It was definitely more productive for us as the weather was too warm to want to go outside! It is time to start another week and keep moving along on some more late summer/fall orders. Tomorrow’s post will be some info about RBK Creations. If you have any questions about who we are or what we do, just let me know!
