Hitomi comes to Houston!

 Hitomi was able to make it to Houston this last month and we were luck enough to be able to go see her show. Hitomi is a fabulous designer, whose creativity is endless.

Here are just a few of the many things we learned about from the fabulous Hitomi!

Party Central...

 If there's one thing about the Team at The Blooming Idea that we all have in common, it's that we all love to PARTY! And let's be honest, it isn't a party without decor, and no decor speaks more, gets more wows, and sets the mood than flowers! These beauties are done in oranges, yellows and whites with a fun sliced lemon accent in the oversized martini glass vase. The white hydrangea, dendrobium orchids, button poms and miniature garden roses create a fun play on textures. While the low arrangement in a glass bowlie with white hydrangea, voodoo orange roses, yellow buttons and bear grass and ti leaf accents coordinates perfectly!
These two large pieces in tall glass cylinders filled with green cymbidium orchids show off the arrangement of bells of Ireland, orange lilies, white hydrangea, miniature and full size roses, alstomeria and mixed greenery. The citrus color pallet is perfect for early summer and will liven up any party!

Throwing a party soon? Well, it's not complete without flowers! Give us a call and we'll set you up with the perfect arrangements for you perfect party!

Summer Hues...

 Just in time for summer, this fabulous wedding was perfectly colorful for the season!
 With a mix of lime green, orange, hot pinks and purples it was the perfect blend of colors for a fun loving early summer wedding!
 The ceremony was at The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center, outdoors on the Forest Deck, while the reception was in The Glass ballroom (one of my favorites!) For the centerpieces we combined two different styles together to create impact and variety. The mix of bells of Ireland, stock, spider mums, gerbera daisies and hydrangea was a fun playful mix with lots of textures and bold color.
This beautiful bride was truly stunning on her big day. We loved working with her and wish he all the best! It was another perfect day in The Woodlands for a beautiful wedding!

Easter Weekend... Part 3

 Sunday morning The Club(s) at Carlton Woods, both Fazio and Nicklas hosted a fabulous Easter Brunch.  Fazio's color scheme of pink yellow and blues was a fun fresh combination, reminiscent of the fresh spring air that we've been enjoying for quite some time.
 With fluffy blue hydrangea, giant yellow roses, yellow forsythia blooming branches, yellow tulips, pink miniature garden roses and variegated pink and white lilies this centerpiece was a masterpiece and absolutely stunning to look at!

 Nicklas had a softer color scheme with peaches, buttercream yellows and whites. With white hydrangeas as a base for these table arrangements the peach roses and buttercream stock added just the right amount of contrast and texture.
 The buffet arrangements at Nicklas were created but clustering groups of like flowers together! You get a fun new shape and design when you cluster, and if your using a variety of smaller sized blooms this technique also helps give more visual impact as opposed to mixing it all up.

And of course it wouldn't be easter without a big beautiful piece in the Nicklas Bears Den. Using the same clustering technique on a much larger scale this piece welcomed visitor with wonderful pops of bright color as they entered the brunch!

It was a wonderful weekend!
