Vintage Beauty

Classic. Simple. Elegant.

Trends come and go but vintage beauty remains timeless. The pop of fiery colors made this event truly striking. Each table had its own cake adorned with a wide satin ribbon and a single Gerbera daisy bloom in various shades of red and orange accented by 3 small cubes with a different variety of bloom in each vase. The brides bouquet incorporated mango calla lilies, red roses and hypericum berries. The classic and clean style of the arrangements paired with the beautiful vintage style dresses of the bridal party helped to create a perfect 1920's style ambiance. Vintage beauty is amplified simplicity at its best.

Carlton Woods Advisory Board Dinner 2009

The Holidays are in full swing here at The Blooming Idea, and this week we have officially kicked off the holidays season. We received our beautiful shipment of poinsettias in white, pink, two tone and gorgeous red. This week we also had the opportunity to decorate the Carlton Woods for their annual advisory board dinner. Centered around an all out Christmas theme with red, white, green and hints of gold. We created a beautiful tale scape with our 40" and 32" clarinet vases, clusters of gold ornaments, paved rose arrangements and poinsettia place setting accents.

Each clarinet arrangement included fresh poinsettias, white roses, white spider mums, red and green anthirium, red james storii orchids, white hydrangea, clusters of gold ornaments and a variety of Christmas greenery. Suspended within the vase were clusters of gold ornaments in various sizes and shapes.

It's all in the details with a table scape of this size. We added a little bit of elegant glamour with the candy cane shepherd hooks with hanging ornaments and the paved low arrangements with roses and clusters of small gold ornaments, a little romance with the red glass candle holders, and a little bit of Christmas with the poinsettia blooms at each place setting.

Black and White

If you were to look back 10, 20, 30, even 40 years at wedding picture you would find one thing in common amongst them all... Black and White color schemes. It's a classic understated elegance that has evolved with a contemporary flare.This last weekend one of our weddings was just that, understated, classic, elegant with a little flare. I like to think of it as Traditional in a non traditional way. Black candelabras draped in glass crystals, white flowers in an arching line with a touch of green to add dimension to the all white color pallet, strong vertical lines, and texture and visual interest with a variety of flowers.
