Summer is a perfect time for stargazing, and nothing speaks to that better than a wedding featuring Stargazer Lilies. A recent bride chose to carry a bouquet of lilies, white roses and green hypericum berry. Her table centerpieces were simple yet elegant cylinder vases with lilies and a touch of bear grass.

Our bride Erin wanted a simple color palette for her wedding, and chose a single flower type to go with it… Beautiful Gerbera Daisies! Working with just two varieties, Shimmer and Diablo, she created a fresh spring look for her Mother’s Day wedding.
We created her bouquet, corsages and Boutonnieres, and she made her own centerpieces from matching gerberas she bought through our DIY site.
The Shimmer gerberas are the white with pink centers, and the Diablo are the light pink.

We are loving these new Vintage Bottles, now available through our Bloomery DIY site! So versatile.. great for collections of flowers on tables, used as hanging vases, etc..

Stephanie and her husband were married in Key West, Florida in mid-July, and then had a great reception back home for family and friends. Held at the Mayernik Center at Avonworth Community Park, they themed their reception around lemons and limes for a great Florida twist. We created two different types of centerpieces, one which featured lemons and daisies, and the other featured limes and dendrobium orchids. The beautiful mantel was adorned with family wedding photos and our Lemon Stacks, and finished with some loose Lemon Leaf foliage (or Salal for those of you looking to use this foliage in your wedding or event). We also showed the Lemon Stacks and the 2 types of centerpieces at the guest book area for a great feature. We heard so many comments from the family and their guests that the centerpieces were a big hit, and that it was fun to see something different on the tables for this reception!
We often will have brides choose the same flower types for all of the bouquets, but have them in different colors for the Bride and Bridesmaids. In one of our recent weddings, our bride, Katie, did just that. She carried a hand tied bouquet of Vendella Roses, White Alstromeria, White Stock, Cream Spray Roses and a touch of Lavender Limonium. Her bridesmaids also carried hand tied bouquets, made with Cool Water Roses, Lavender Stock, Lavender Alstromeria, and a touch of Lavender Limonium. The effect is a one of consistency, but lets the bride have a more traditional bouquet while the girls’ have color to pop against their dresses.
For the ceremony, we made stunning vases of Purple Gladiolas – a nice, modern look that is also cost-effective. The reception tables were low cube arrangements so that the guests could easily hold conversation across the table. Featuring a combination of Light Blue Hydrangea and Lavender Roses, they were accented with a touch of Seeded Eucalyptus. The head table featured a long and low, garden style centerpiece that incorporated the light blue, lavender, and cream flowers used in the bouquets and guest tables to tie it all together.

Pantone set one of the hot colors of the year as Honeysuckle. True to form, their prediction was spot on, as we’ve had several weddings featuring that beautiful bright pink color scheme. Our recent bride, Natalie, was one of them! Featuring a lush flower combination of Dutch Pink Hydrangeas, Latin Breeze Roses, Hot Pink Peonies, with accents of Green Button Mums and Yellow Spray Roses. The color scheme really popped off of the girls’ yellow dresses. The bride’s bouquet was a more traditional ivory/cream color combination featuring Roses, Hydrangea and Stephanotis. With a morning ceremony at the landmark Heinz Chapel and a luncheon reception at the Marriott City Center, the wedding guests were treated to a fabulous event in Natalie and Eric’s lives. We were happy to be a part of their special day.
A few weeks back, we had the pleasure of providing flowers for Heather and Aaron’s wedding at Succop Conservancy. In fitting with the beautiful, garden type setting, we created bouquets in a mixture of garden flowers in hues of pinks and purples. The bouquets including Roses, Stock, Mini Carnations, Seafoam Statice, Calcynia and Waxflower. Mason Jars filled with a coordinating mixture adorned the tables, and we carried through that same feeling with fresh flowers on her cake, made by Cakes By Pennie. In addition to the natural beauty of the venue, the finishing touches made such a statement –we loved this Reception sign that pointed guests which way to go!
