The “Mother of Pearl” rose is a brand new rose for the 2012 wedding season.  It is a large head champagne rose that has an undertone of a blush/porcelain pink.  It is a beautiful rose to accent any romantic or vintage style wedding.  Its subtle hue works as a main wedding color or as its sidekick.

Recipe for a beautiful Bridal Bouquet

What makes this bouquet so stunning? So beautiful? How do you make something like this?  These are all questions that we hear often from our brides going thru our portfolio books.  So, we decided to explain the process of making this bridal bouquet. First we start out with our four main flowers Ivory roses White Ranuculas White Dahlias White Freesia Our next step was to start building the bouquet, we started with building the base of Ivory Roses. We next added 10 stems of ivory Dahlias throughout the roses. After adding the Dahlias we added in 10 stems of Ivory Freesia. After adding in the Freesias we added in 15 White Ranuculas. We added accents of large, chunky pearls throughout the bouquet. Adding greenery around the edge of the bouquet. Wrapping the bridal bouquet in ivory satin ribbon. Finishing touches on the bouquet ribbon.  Clusters of pearls. And the final product…… Thank you Chuck Childers Photography
