Best of 2008

Best of 2008
At the end of every year, I like to take a day and reflect on the good and the bad that has occured over that past 365 days. 2008 was an incredible year for Mocha Rose and honestly, I could only come up with one item that fit in the bad category. The one negative part of our business is that we cannot accommodate every wedding and event that comes our way. Quality and[...]

Sara and Marc
Sara and Marc were married at The First Unitarian Church in Shadyside with a reception at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. What a fun wedding! If you have been following my blog, you know that I love a modern, chic design that breaks the rules. I'd say that was achieved, don't you?There were two different types of centerpieces. The first was a submerged centerpiece[...]

Christen’s Wedding

Christen's Wedding
As we were driving to set up today's wedding, I realized it was a pumpkin spice day. I'm addicted to Starbuck's pumpkin spiced lattes, but the weather has just been too hot lately to truly appreciate the first fall flavor of the year. The leaves are starting to change, but it just hasn't felt like fall until today. It reminded me of a bouquet that I made for Christen'[...]
