A few years back I designed a wedding for a client of mine,


Justin and Stephanie Davis (above)  who was in love with anything shabby chic, pink and garden related.

Their wedding was charming and set apart from others. During the cocktail hour, we were inspired by Martha Stewarts suggestion on making your cocktails beautiful with rose details. And today I was sent a daily e-mail from Martha Stewart Weddings on the same subject. wrc13_094_0001_01_l

Tiny roses add an elegant detail to your champagne toast. To make the garnishes, insert a toothpick into the base of each blossom at an angle of a little less than 45 degrees. Cut the stems cleanly about 1 inch shorter than the length of the toothpick; you may have to adjust length depending on the weight of the bloom. Place each toothpick just inside of a rim, letting the roses balance delicately on top.
