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!

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!

Ceremony aisles were lined with mason jars of wildflowers on shephard’s hooks.

Mason jars contained zinnias, sedum, Queen Anne’s Lace, lamb’s ear, monte casino, and berzillia berries.

Reception tables contained various shapes and sizes of vases with free-form arrangements in each. Most consisted of zinnias, Queen Anne’s Lace, berzillia berries, sedum, gomphrena, monte casino, and purple veronica.

The bridal party table held all bouquets in blue mason jars.

Boutonnieres were white monte casino daisies, pink gomphrena, and green berzillia berries wrapped in twine.

Hot pink and green combo remix! It’s an awesome color scheme, so why not?!

Beautiful bridal bouquet of white and green hydrangeas with a splash of hot pink spray roses. The handle was accented with pearl pins.

Reception tables were decorated with plates of green apples and pink and green flowers or flower centerpieces. The greeting card table housed a black metal birdcase decorated with greenery and flowers.

Reception centerpiece arrangements consisted of white and green hydrangeas, hot pink and ivory roses, hot pink carnations, green spider mums, and green kermit button mums.

Other reception tables had plates, compotes, or wooden boxes of green apples sprinkled with hot pink or green flowers.

Bridesmaid bouquets were hot pink standard and spray roses, hot pink celosia, and green kermit button mums.

Boutonnieres were hot pink spray roses and green myrtle.

Ford Wedding

Shades of purple were the focus of this wedding. Beautiful eggplant, plum, lavender, and just a touch of white.

Bridal bouquet of purple lisianthus, purple stock, seeded eucalyptus and lemon leaf wrapped with plum purple ribbon and a mother-of-pearl flower pin.

The sign-in table held vintage photos of the couple’s relatives.¬†This centerpiece was comprised of ‘Cool Water’ roses, purple hydrangeas, purple lisianthus, seeded eucalyptus, and lemon leaf in a square glass vase.

The altar arrangement was made up of ‘Cool Water’ roses, purple and white hydrangeas, and purple stock in a 2′ glass pilsner vase.

Plan It Events did it again with these AMAZING reception tables! They have at least 3 of these candleabras available to rent as well as a huge variety of vases. Dale and Lisa are always a pleasure to work with. They are the kind of people that go above and beyond to make sure your wedding day is perfect.  I highly recommend them for wedding planning!

Half of the reception tables were decorated with¬†these 4-branch tabletop candleabras¬†holding white¬†tapered candles and white ‘Virginia’ and lavender ‘Cool Water’ roses flower arrangements.

The other half of the tables were various size vases of submerged purple mini calla lilies, purple dendrobium orchids, and white spray roses with river rocks anchoring the flowers.

Have I ever mentioned that blue delphinium is my favorite flower?!¬† Because it is…I love that it’s different than the regular fluffy rose and there aren’t many flowers that come in striking royal blue like delphinium.¬† Stunning!

Katherine’s wedding color schedule was royal blue and white.¬† Her dress was covered in delicate lace and intricate beadwork.¬† So her bouquet handle reflects that.

Bridal bouquet of white ‘Escimo’ roses, white spray roses, and blue delphinium wrapped in vintage lace and pearl bead buttons.

 Beautiful roses and delphinium next to a concrete urn.  Notice the delicate late on the bouquet handle that ties in the lace from her dress.

 The Gazebo at White Barn Estates is such a wonderful backdrop for any wedding. Here it is adorned with a greenery garland of blue delphinium, white roses, green pittosporum and italian ruscus.

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!

Rollins Wedding

What a fun and beautiful wedding this turned out to be!

Jewel tones of eggplant purple, chartreuse green, sapphire blue, and bright orange was the color palette of this wedding.
