Oranges and Limes Anyone?

There is something refreshing about bright colors paired with a fresh green. Green, although used mostly as a neutral can add energy and vibrance to other colors to truly make them pop.
We used a combination of a few different designs for the table centerpieces. One of our most popular tall arrangements is a natural all around design atop our fluted vase. This type of arrangement can be done in any color combination and any style. The second style was a cluster of candles and blooms atop a layer of green sheet moss with candles in various heights of squares. With gorgeous platinum linens the blooms shined and filled the room with beautiful color.

Dripping With Flowers

Carlton Woods celebrated the champions from their annual Member Guest golf tournament with an absolutely gorgeous event on Saturday night. In this instance, pictures truly don't do our work justice. With a woodsy and  almost ethereal ambiance we aimed to please with rich autumn tones and bright bold blooms. We had such a great time decorating the entire ceiling of the wine room at the Fazio with beautiful anthirium, roses, spider mums, orchids, and draping vines. 
For the Champions tables we used one of our big beautiful metal trees with hanging arrangements and candles and roots of flowers extending along the table. Additional candlelight was scattered throughout the table. Each clear votive cylinder was wrapped in a sycamore tree leaf and rafia.

The event had 3 big beautiful and bold showpieces. Our "wave" as we like to refer to it was something you couldn't miss. With bark, curly willow, mushrooms, dangling crystals and twinkling lights the flowers grew out of the crevasses in between. With anthirium, hanging amaranthus, spider mums, two tone roses and gorgeous cushion mums the colors were awe-inspiring.
Each table had a coordinating arrangement. Some had beautiful metal trees with hanging candles and flowers and some had more traditional all around arrangements, rich with fall colors.

Our third showpiece was dripping with crystals. Constructed on a tilted armature and woven with curly willow the flowers spiraled up through the canopy as the giant glass crystals caught the sunlight.
If you can think of it, we can do it, and we'd also be more than happy to dream it up for you too! Our team at  The Blooming Idea works seamlessly together to create stunning floral displays for any event. We had a fabulous time working on all the arrangements for the Carlton Woods Member Guest event and are looking forward to a holiday season filled with fun and exciting parties. Make sure to call us now to book your holiday party, because no party is complete without gorgeous flowers!

Carlton Woods Wedding... Part 2

With beautiful hot colors the vibrancy was irresistible.  Again I'd like to thank ANA&IVAN Photography for the use of these stunning images of our work.

 This is a great picture to show the difference between a traditional shoulder corsage, a boutonette style should corsage and a wrist corsage.
