Sunday Spotlight: A Time to Shine Floral Design
Whoever said, “do what you love and love what you do,” must have had Kelly in mind, the owner and head florist of A Time to Shine Floral Design. Her love for flowers began at age 16 when she volunteered to fill in a short-staffed floral department at her job in the local grocery store, and then requested to be permanently moved to that team. Soon, she began dreaming of starting her own floral business and giving clients a completely customized experience. One day after work, Kelly shared some ideas with her husband and he said, “Go for it!” The rest is history.
Floral arrangements very quickly tie together a reception from the colors to the welcoming appearance and are a fantastic addition to your table top decor. Arrangements can vary in hundreds of ways, making each one personalized and special for your big day. Choosing a florist is much more than looking at the cost of a package - it's about their art work, the style(s) the design and your trust in them to complete your vision.
Still a relatively small operation, A Time to Shine has the ability to, and truly delights in, providing clients with customizable options; not just packages A, B, or C. They take the time and care to work out arrangements that reflects the couple’s personality, taste, and preferences. Kelly enjoys regularly experimenting and trying the latest trends, so that she can always be sure she knows how to do what you’re envisioning.

A Sweet Tooth & Heaven Sent Treats!
Samantha with Heavenly Taylored Sweets has been baking for over 10 years and made things official nearly four years ago focusing on her art. In addition to her kind and charismatic personality her talents in the kitchen are phenomenal. Samantha focuses on creating custom works of art that taste as good or better than they look. Even though her specialty is buttercream cakes, she also works with fondant to create a custom piece perfect for your event! Cakes are just the beginning, do you have a sweet tooth for cookies, cupcakes, cake pops, scones, pies, cinnamon rolls....The list goes on and on and it's only making us hungrier!
One thing Brides of Heavenly Taylored Sweets love is the straight forward pricing. Not in the business of additional cost lines such as delivery and additional fees on invoices this is one bakery that keeps things simple. Fillings & multiple flavors? It's rare they will cost any additional - unless you choose something extremely exotic or highly specialized. Samantha's philosophy is if she is going to bake you a custom order why not let you choose exactly what you want!

Feast of Roses: Banquet
It's no secret Hawthorn Hills Ranch has a big heart for the community & for local organizations. This non-profit banquet was one of our favorites from 2016. The ladies of this group did a phenomenal job to incorporate various aspects of their organization from their colors to their squirrel mascot.
Floral accents can add elegant touches without over powering a table for a banquet. These roses paired with our vases and accent pieces offer a gorgeous look with the red linen napkins and accent runners. A beautiful touch that set the decor over the top was the accent of a pearl in the middle of the red rose.
Whether it is a small or large banquet, celebrating the year's end or a company's anniversary we would love to celebrate with you at Hawthorn Hills Ranch. One of the perks of our modern, southern chic venue is it's versatility to make it your own.

Setting the Atmosphere
A night full of music, dancing and laughter is how many couples envision their reception to celebrate their big day. But if that's you it can be difficult finding someone you haven't "seen in action", and odds are unless your sister just got married you don't have a go-to list. Meeting a professional gives you the opportunity to see if your personalities mesh well, their reputation and reviews are a great asset and so is their experience.
Jay Fox Production covers all of these and then some, with a fantastic outlook that each wedding and event has an orchestrated flow and deserves a unique atmosphere. He is able to achieve this through paying careful attention the entire evening to your guests, carefully selecting the perfect songs to set the tempo of the evening- and of course with some great lighting as well! With more than 20 years experience you surely will not be disappointed with this talented professional regardless of the size or type of event you are planning.
