New Listing on Etsy: Succulents

Have you ever noticed how beautiful a Succulent is? Succulents are also called organic beauties and they are becoming more and more popular not only for weddings but also for decorations like centerpieces.
So recently I met a baker and she asked me to create some succulent flowers to decorate a cake she has planned to put on a window on her shop. So I stopped at my local floral store and saw a variety of them, but there was one in particular that stunned me! I came home and started to work on my first succulent flower. To be honest, the first one did not look like a succulent at all! So the second try came out better, working more on the edges and then finishing with a touch of color. Here are the pictures:



Check more pictures at my Etsy Store! The new listing is up, you can order as a set of three or you can email for a custom order.

Bridal Show

I was so happy to be a part of The Everything Bridal Show this year, which was hosted at the Hy-Vee Conference Center in West Des Moines.  A successful event and great exposure for Cold Porcelain Art!

 
I was looking forward to this event so this year I had some new and colorful creations like this exotic orange cymbidium orchid with lily of the valley cake topper.

 
Others were more unique like place card holders which can add some romanticism to your table d├ęcor but also can be used as a wedding favor.


I had a great time, not only setting up appointments while hearing love stories but also helping with new ideas on how to choose a luxury option like cold porcelain flowers that will bring memories of an eternal love!

What a romantic day I had!!!

Going International!

This summer has been very busy and fun for me, orders for weddings are -by far- what I have been working on the most. But a few weeks ago something new and exciting came with an order request... and that was for the flowers to be shipped to Australia!!!

So YES, it is now official, Cold Porcelain Art is now international! J

You see, when I started this blog, my first posting titled “Blogging World… Here I come!” talked about how I never imagined being blogging. Well, after just over a year, and incorporating Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Etsy into the mix, you can probably understand why I consider this to be a milestone. Online “global reach” has a new and real meaning to me!

This client’s request was to create red and pink poppies, green hydrangeas, white gardenias and white dogwood flowers. I had so much fun creating them, specially the red/black contrast obtained with the poppies, definitely an eye catcher! Here is a picture of the red poppy and white gardenias.

New Listings on Etsy: Miniatures and Teapots

I just recently added new listings to my Etsy Shop with Miniatures and Teapots. One of my customers loved the flower arrangements teapots and asked me to make a mini arrangement for favors. So I create a set of miniatures for her party and later she order one teapot for a co-worker.

The vases are also unique, handcrafted and hand-painted by Bolivian artisans. Here are the pictures:



I really enjoy making miniatures and Teapots. Take a look at my Etsy Shop.

Orchids and more Orchids!

One of my clients contacted me to see if I could create a single green orchid to put on a place card for a 16th birthday party. So I created green cymbidium orchid with hints of pale light green in the center petals and with a pink color highlighting the edges. The throat has pink dots on sides’ scallops and lines on the middle scallop. She really liked so she ordered 6 more.  


 Another order I enjoyed creating was a cake topper a lady requested for a wedding. The cake topper flower arrangement consists of 2 white orchids with a magenta throat (with hints of pale light green).


This is the cake topper arrangement with white Stephanotis flowers painted with hints of yellow in the middle. My best wishes to the newlyweds!

My Latest Works!

These are my newest creations with one of my favorite flower: roses!
I was recently asked to make this centerpiece using this exquisite nacre vase. Looking at the beautiful colors of the nacre I decided to create white roses with a soft pink touch. It was a challenging creation because of the vase shape.



Also, this past month I created these roses centerpieces. In both of them, the flower arrangement is placed on a wood base, giving a touch of nature to my flowers.



And my spring inspiration creation is this cute daisies arrangement placed inside of an acrylic display box.


The centerpieces and the daisies are already on my Etsy Shop. Take a Look!
