Our Book Party Photos From Vancouver

Hello everyone! I'm just thrilled to share our book party photos from our first book party for Decorate With Flowers held in Vancouver this past Friday. It was hosted by the super gorgeous interior design store, The Cross who helped us so much on our shoots loaning us props for our book. Lovely Leslie Shewring, the author, was on the scene signing books and making flower arrangements for guests to purchase and take away. It was such a gorgeous event that I had to share it with you because we are both so proud! thecross11 All of these photos were shot by Vancouver-based photographer Janis Nicolay? She photographed most of the Canadian interiors in our book. Naturally, she had to be at the book party to share in the fun of the evening. We were so thrilled when she offered to take some photos to capture the spirit of the event. I wish we could have her travel with us and shoot all of our events - she is one of the best photographers out there - I love her eye and style.

The lady in the middle has her home in our book, her name is Kate Horsman. The stunning woman to her right is her mom and to her left, her equally beautiful sister. What a gorgeous group. Thank you Kate for lending us your home to shoot in - we loved styling one of our entertainment shots in your dining room with your incredible white piano!

Thank you again to The Cross for this beyond beautiful event that you hosted for us and for selling out of all of our books! Yay!

Our next flower party is in the plans in North America and also in the UK and Europe, but we still need to finalize everything. When we do, I'll post our events on decor8 so you possibly may join us.
