The ice bowl is spectacular. Your guests must have felt incredibly special because of all the superb details that you added to the tablescape. Great work! Cherry Kay

I too have a thing for Lavender... and I love that music that you have playing ,please disclose what it is ... xx


The icebowl is so easy to make & any kind of flower can be used. As a jewelry designer, everything is about details & translates to every area & sometimes can drive one quite round the bend. xx's
