Garden Rose & Eucalyptus Bouquet

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!

Enjoy!

King Protea Bouquet

We have been eyeing King Protea ever since we began this flower blog and we finally had the opportunity to use it in a bouquet and we are obsessed with how it turned out! The cool thing about this bouquet is because of the variety of stems we chose, this mixture of flowers could pair well with any style of wedding; bohemian, chic, tropical, backyard, or classic.

*This bouquet is made of protea, pincushions, traditional roses, seeded eucalyptus, baby blue eucalyptus, silver dollar eucalyptus, and wax flower.

Romantic Bridal Bouquet

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.

Valentine’s Day Bouquet

What is the best part of Valentine’s Day for you? For us it’s definitly the flowers! (In close second are the conversation hearts). We put a unique twist on the typical V-day rose bouquet this year. Don’t get us wrong, we have a serious love affair with garden roses, but why settle for such an easy staple?

We created this bouquet with our favorites in mind, and that’s the way it should be! Flowers will definitely brighten your loved ones day, but a unique bouquet of their favorite flowers will earn you some serious brownie points. This Valentine’s Day earn the extra brownie points by spending a little extra time shopping around the 3 for $10 at Central Market, Trader Joes, or Whole Foods and put together something she will love. It doesn’t have to be perfect, but it is a thoughtful and beautiful way to fill any girl’s love tank!  

Our Valentine’s bouquet it made of : peonies, hydrangea, carnations, waxflower, white veronica, snapdragons, viburnum berries, cockscomb and seeded eucalyptus.

Peonies & Magnolia Leaves

Not only is this peony and magnolia arrangement beautiful, but the cost is low which is an added bonus! We were able to pick these leaves from a tree at a park nearby, and only needed to buy 2 bunches of peonies from the store to complete.

This arrangement is easy to put together, and when complete makes a big statement piece. The mix of green & velvety brown leaves with the different size dark pink peonies gives a great texture and variety using only 2 types of stems. With the help of some floral foam, this arrangement is easy to form into any type of vase you have on hand.

 

Happy arranging!
