Liz + Jon's Wedding Blooms - 5.29.16

Last month, I had the privilege of doing flowers for a beautiful couple's wedding! I thought it would be fun to share some of the blooms from the day! Their wedding colors were cobalt blue, blush, and peach and the theme was Japanese/vintage travel. These gorgeous photos were taken by the extremely talented Billye Donya! Elizabeth is a peony lover (who wouldn't be!?) so I did a mix of blush and white peonies with peach garden roses (my personal favorite!) for a luxurious, romantic look. I added some blush astilbe to add texture, but keep the softness of the bouquet.

We decided to do a floral comb rather than a crown for this gorgeous May wedding. I used spray roses, ranunculus, and astilbe for the pretty bride. I also made each bridesmaid a smaller comb with ranunculus! Liz_Jon_Wedding_055292016-0230

For the tables, we did taller centerpieces packed with peach and blush blooms - dahlias, peonies, roses, ranunculus, and queen anne's lace. Each table also had the most amazing blue glass with various blooms.

Floral Fun: Spring "Watering Can" Arrangement

With Easter quickly approaching, I thought it would be fun to put together a spring-inspired arrangement using a watering can as a vase. This would be super cute for an Easter table or for Spring in general. Here's what you need and how to put together your very own! SpringArrangement24

I wanted to make sure this arrangement had a mixture of fun textures, so I tried to choose blooms of varying shapes and sizes.

You Will Need:

  • pink heather
  • kale
  • lavender poms
  • pink tulips
  • boxwood greenery

SpringArrangement

You Will Need:

  • Watering Can
  • Floral Shears (Mine are a brand called Ohana, the absolute best!)
  • Clear Floral Tape
  • Scissors (gold handle optional :))

SpringArrangement1

STEP 1: Fill the watering can with water, be careful not to fill it too high. Cut the clear floral tape into strips (it's best to do this as you go in my opinion, rather than cutting them all ahead of time) and place from one side of the watering can to the other, leaving space in between each piece (these should all be going in the same direction). Once you have finished, you will repeat this process going the opposite direction to create a grid across the opening of the watering can. This will help hold your stems in place while you are designing.

STEP 2: Begin placing your blooms and greenery between the tape. I started with kale, then began adding other flowers as I went. You can see step by step what I did below. Apologies for the photos where it may be hard to tell what was added! Hopefully this will be fairly easy to follow.

Here I turned the vase the opposite direction so that you could see the other side of the watering can while I was placing the blooms.

Greenery like the boxwood I added below gives the arrangement a more garden like feel!
