Wedding in the Tropics...

... or at least thats what it looked like. Although some would argue Houston is semi-tropical. But this is one of those occasions where the photos say it all. Classy, modern, feminie and passionate were just some of the qualities incorporated into this beautiful wedding.
The ceremony was held on the Forest Deck at The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center but instead of using the gazebo this bride re-oriented her ceremony to face the sunset, creating a more intimate setting. It also made for some stunning silouette photographs. Her altar arrangements sparkled with curly willow draped with dangling crystals creating a canopy over a beautiful lush arrangement of purple, fuschia and green flowers.
The cake was adorned with a variety of blooms used throughout the wedding including phaleanopsis orchids, hydrangea blooms, stock, miniature garden roses and calcinia. Again this was one of those events where the pictures just don't seem to do the arrangements justice. The combination of styles, the colors, and the atmosphere created the perfect ambiance and was in just a few words, absolutely fabulous!

What could top a birthday celebration filled with rich texture and color, friends and family. Every year we create a beautiful masterpiece for some of our most loyal customers. This year their chosen theme was centered around the idea of luscious peaches and cream.

Antique hydrangea were the secret in the lush, full, and voluminous appearance of this masterpiece. Purple dendrobium orchids, coral and peach roses, ilse miniature garden roses, green hanging amarathus, purple roses, and dark purple carnations were a fresh combination of color after the all the hot pink and red of our favorite lovers holiday.

The color of royalty

We love following the current color trends. It is so interesting to see what colors become popular with each new season. Purple has always been a color symbolic of royalty; and for good reason! It's rich hue creates a sense of luxury. With its velvety texture the blooms long to be admired. Colors have a significant impact on how we feel and react to certain situations. Purple embodies the balance of stimulating reds and calming blues. With a sense of mystic or royal qualities purple is often well liked by the creative minded.

72 Roses

Have you been good this year? If so, wouldn't you love to receive 6 dozen roses as a striking centerpiece for your home? This arrangement was sent out as an anniversary gift. Each set of dozen roses represented one of their children. What a beautiful way to honor the one you love.

Other popular anniversary traditions have included sending one rose for each year the couple has been together. Or incorporating the "traditional anniversary gift" elements into a design ex: a paper card, a pearl bracelet, or some curly willow. Do you have any fun anniversary traditions? We'd love to hear how you celebrate!
