Daisies and polka dots...

Fun summer colors created a beautiful pop of color for this outdoor wedding.

Her decadent tiered cake was packed with a combination of all the flowers used throughout the wedding, alongside a slender arrangement to fill out the table.

Each table had a small bouquet or arrangement of coordinating flowers. Introducing fresh florals really tied everything together creating a unified feel throughout the venue.

The arch behind the bride and groom was decorated with coordinating ribbon, greenery garland and floating flowers hung in decorative wire and water tubles to keep them fresh and hydrated.

Katie's wedding colors were Red, Yellow, and White. She picked Roses and daisies as her flowers. They reflected the couples love for life, and classic taste!

Classic Red Roses...

There is something serene and elegant about a classic red rose wedding. We used accents of brown hypericum berries and fern curls, with plumosa to create a feathery texture and soften the arrangements.

The Cake was a tiered hexagon suspended on this beautiful stand. We packed the bottom layer with a combination of roses, hypericum berries, fern curls, miniature garden roses, and greenery. FOr the second layer we created a focal area with the flowers at the front, and the top of the cake was adorned with just a few coordinating flowers. The different designs elaborated the beautiful shape of the cake and created more interest by using different techniques.

Rose petals adorned every table throughout the backyard venue.

The bride and bridesmaids bouquets were composed of solid red roses, hypericum berries, fern curls, and wrapped in black satin ribbon.

The Elusive Blue Vase...

During the first month I started at the flower shop I took on the task of cleaning out all the vases, containers, pots, baskets, and random trinkets. I came across a beautiful blue bowlie vase that had about an inch of dust on it. We have a lot of random vases in the shop. Some are old FTD or Teleflora, but some are the last few remnants of a case that was purchased years ago. For some reason we have started calling these loner vases "odd-wads." They have their own shelf now, and everytime we feel up for a challenge we grab one of the "odd-wads" and see what we can create. Sometimes they are a hit and other times not so much... This was my "odd-wad" creation; which sold the next morning when one of our usual customers waltzed in the shop and said the best words a florist can hear... "I just have to have that!"
