Red Wedding Bouquet

So….have you noticed I haven’t done weddings in a while? Yeah, me too. I really do miss it. I got a new position at work and unfortunately, it is not as laid back as my old position. Therefore, I don’t have as much time to work on flowers as I used to. I have, however, had bouquet requests from friends of friends (of friends, of friends….). Those are manageable. Here is the latest one:

Red Bouquet

A lovely bouquet of all red Gerbera daisies, ‘Charlotte’ roses, zinnias, and Indian Blanket (from my own backyard). All wrapped in a burlap and lace handle and oversized brown button. Perfect for a country wedding!

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 – Soft 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 🙂 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 😉

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) – yellow 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 – taken 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!
