Roles Wedding

Soft pastel colors and locally grown product keep this wedding very “I just picked these out of my gramma’s backyard”. Bridle Creek Ranch is a perfect setting that allows you to take advantage of the beautiful surroundings instead of spending a fortune decorating it. I highly recommend it as the next spot for your event!

Bridal bouquet of soft pink dahlias, pink and purple zinnias, white Queen Anne’s Lace, pink gomphrena, purple veronica, autumn blooming clematis,¬†green berzillia berries, and lamb’s ear wrapped in a twine handle with turqoise colored sheer ribbon.

I added a sprig of spearmint from my backyard to the inside of this bouquet so it had a pleasant and calming affect for the bride ūüôā I hope it helped her to relax!

Vintage Bottles

Posted on

I LOVE vintage bottles!!!¬† Who doesn’t, right?¬† My collection is getting extensive…..my husband has complained…

I found these beautiful old medicine bottles at a garage sale.  They were selling them for .25/ea which was a steal! I bought all of them. Some have a green/blue tint to them and most have a raised glass label on the frony.  I looked up the square ones online and found them going for $25-$45 a piece!  They will add such a great rustic, vintage feel to any centerpiece with a single garden rose or delicate flower in them.

Folger Wedding

I absolutely love spring weddings!¬† I wish more brides would get married in April.¬† Rachel’s wedding scheme was bright orange and plum purple.¬† Perfect contrasting colors!

The aisles were decorated with hanging mason jars containing purple hydrangeas and hung with plum purple satin ribbon. Simple accents to contrast with the white outdoor folding chairs.

Bridesmaids carried orange bouquets of ‘Miracle’ roses, ranunculus, and tulips accented with green pittosporum and wrapped with purple satin ribbon.

The bride carried a dark purple bouquet of stock, mini calla lilies, and lisianthus wrapped in orange satin ribbon and purple pearl pins.

Groomsmen wore a single orange ranunculus boutonniere wrapped in purple ribbon.

The groom wore a single purple mini calla lily boutonniere wrapped in purple ribbon.

 

Purple table linens set off either all orange rose or all purple stock centerpieces in glass cube or square vases. Each centerpiece was surrounded by small purple votive candles.

 

Miscellaneous Arrangements

Sometimes, I do arrangements for special occasions – my mother’s birthday, friend’s anniversary, etc.¬† I think I’ll start posting those arrangements here:

Peacock arrangement РSoft pink spray roses, blue hydrangeas, pink tulips, blue delphinium, purple kale, and green hypericum berries accented with seeded eucalyptus and peacock feathers.  The vase sets off the arrangement with a teal blue sash, silver button, and peacock feathers glued to the bottom.  Very fun and exotic!

Simple arrangements with only one type of flower are the easiest as well as most inexpensive.  I also love the elegance and modern look it creates.

Yellow and White gladiolas in a vase.

White monte casino daisies in a mason jar.

Lavendar blue and purple hydrangeas from my own personal garden ūüôā You may see this blue mason jar in many of my random arrangements.¬† It’s my favorite container.

Pink peonies with silver lamb’s ear and green hostas in a blue mason jar – also from my garden ūüėČ

Valentine’s arrangement for my best friend from her husband – red tulips, white hydrangeas with various greens in a crystal bowl.

Bridal fair arrangement I made for Averi Blackmon (www.averiblackmon.com) Рyellow roses, purple and green trachelium, white stock, blue delphinium, lily grass, bupleureum, and eucalyptus in my favorite cobalt blue mason jar.

One of my favorite light yellow roses to use!¬† ‘Blizzard’ roses are still standard roses but have a large head and many, many petals.¬† When they open, they look identical to a garden rose which is normally 5x the price!¬† These were left over from a wedding so I arranged them in a milk¬†glass compote and spearmint from my¬†garden.¬† Looked (and smelled) amazing!¬†

Arrangement made for a mock-up of a wedding reception table.  Blush pink spray roses, pink alstromeria, green fuji mums, pink gerbera daisies, and hot pink carnations in a square container. (Sorry about the clarity Рtaken with a camera phone)

Fun with Indian Paintbrush!  I picked these in the open field behind my house and decided to play around with different container ideas.

This is an old metal pitcher I found at a junkyard.  So rustic and still beautiful.

I bought this ‘Clabber Girl’ baking powder tin at another junkyard for .50!¬† Score!¬† You may see me use this container quite a bit for my¬†vintage weddings.

Teapot with flowers.  Still vintage and rustic with the wildflowers but with a modern,  sleek twist. 

I am ofen amazed at how a container can make or break the look of an arrangement.¬† Choose…..wisely!

Butler Wedding

Fall weddings are among my best work.  Something about all those sunset colors just brings out the beauty of the flowers.  Oklahoma has some incredible wildflowers so when brides request fall colors, I know things like celosia, solidago, and zinnias are going to be perfect for the job and pretty inexpensive since they are locally grown!  Throw a few maple leaves in there and you have the makings of a perfect Oklahoma fall wedding.

Color palette of red, orange, and yellow.

Bridal bouquet of orange celosia, yellow with red tip mini calla lilies, yellow solidago, and red gerbera daisies wrapped with red, orange, and yellow twine for the handle.
