As many of you know it’s officially wedding season again. I am happily back in the studio making my precious bridal bouquets. If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you may have already seen these beauties. If not, now is your chance to see them here. This first bouquet was created with the leftover flowers of the day. Unfortunately we often have an excess of flowers leftover because of the bulk stem count we have to order or because some flowers are just plain difficult. Like the poppy for instance. All of these beautiful orange and yellow poppies are excess because I had to buy random mixed bunches of poppies to get the pale peach, pink, and white ones I wanted. I special ordered solid bunches of peach poppies from Holland, California, and NYC and guess what, nope I could only get mixed bunches. Truthfully I am glad it happened though, having extra poppies is always a pleasure. Did you know, florists like to have flowers also!!
This bridal bouquet featured pieris from my garden, scabisoa and sweet pea from Japan, clematis from Florida, lilac from a local grower, white ranunculus and white peony. The bouquet was finished with an amazing ribbon treatment.
This bouquet featured peach and cream poppies, ranunculus from Japan, coral charm peony, peach juliet cabbage roses, white ohara roses, white lilac, illsa spray roses, and dusty miller.
I think we are off to a great start!
