This bouquet is a perfect example of the saying less is more. When designing bridal bouquets there are 2 directions you can take. You can either go extravagant or simple, and because they are fresh cut flowers the outcome will always be full, lush and beautiful.
This is the definition of a simple bouquet, we only used red monster garden roses & silver dollar eucalyptus. Since the garden roses are so dense and structured we chose this less saturated and flowy eucalyptus to complement them. To accent the simplicity of the bouquet we wrapped the stems with a gorgeous, long, off-white shimmer lace. We fell in love with this mixture & can’t wait to share it with future brides!
We have a few friends getting married this summer so wedding flowers are on our mind and we couldn’t be more excited! To get some practice we got together this past weekend and made a couple of our first ever bridal bouquets and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. These were so much fun for us to create (with a vodka drink on the side of course) and while we were super proud of our first ones we definitly learned from it and feel ready to take on the real deal for our bride friends in a couple months!
We knew we wanted to do a dark romantic bouquet that was mixed with draping greens to give it a more dramatic effect. We headed to the flower market and pulled some dark blooms to use as our base. Red monster garden roses & deep purple ranunculus set the tone for the greenery we wanted to mix in with it. We picked out dollar eucalyptus, hanging pepperberry, and seeded eucalyptus and then for a little extra color we added in the amaranth.
And you can’t forget the boutonnière! With just a few pieces of these beautiful stems we were able to put together a simple, modern, and romantic boutonnière that was the perfect compliment to our big bouquet.
We hope you swoon over this beautiful bouquet of flowers just as much as we did 🙂 If you or anyone you know is getting married we are open for all wedding business.
*This bouquet is made of monster garden roses, ranunculus, dollar eucalyptus, hanging pepperberry, amaranth, and seeded eucalyptus.
If you need last minute table inspiration or an early idea for next year, here is our take on a floral Thanksgiving table setting. Spend less time stressing about your table decor, and more time with your family…. or perfecting your 2016 Thanksgiving whiskey cocktail 🙂
You don’t need an over the top elaborate setting to have a Pinterest perfect table! We made a quick trip to Central Market and found exactly what we needed to complete the holiday. A variety of peonies, hydrangeas, sunflowers, succulents and a fresh bunch of rosemary from the yard made this come together. The best tip we can give? Don’t over think your design! Less is more & with a fresh bunch of flowers, you can’t go wrong with impressing your guests.
We have so much to be thankful for, we hope your enjoy your holiday!
