The Bold and the Beautiful

The Bold and the Beautiful

Bold wedding flowers

Our customers often ask us the same question week to week, “Should we do all white or should we add color?” I say ADD COLOR!! I just adore when color is used in any arrangement.  Of course, white is simple and never goes out of style.  It is contemporary, classic and always appropriate.

But when you ask our opinion as a creative director, I always say go for the color!!

These beautiful blooms of magenta, burgundy, peach and bright yellow accent the neutral green base, making the color almost shoot out of this image.

Boutonniere of the year 2017

Boutonniere of the year 2017

So far in our meetings with our brides we have clearly seen a trend in choosing Ranunculus for the main boutonniere flower choice for 2017 upcoming weddings.  With so many colors to choose from, ranunculus can lend themselves towards a garden and greenery themed wedding or a classic rose inspired wedding.  These groomsmen flowers were white ranunculus accented by lavender Wax Flower, Italian Ruscus greenery wrapped in a champagne satin ribbon. The perfect final touch.

There are so many different styles to choose from now a days for a man’s boutonniere.

Classic rose or mixed greenery?  Succulent vs flower?

We always try to advise our bride to choose her favorite flower out of her bouquet and use that one for the groom’s boutonniere.

Low and Long

 

This fabulous centerpiece consists of a low gold leaf compote filled with tulips, roses, ranunculus, rose hips, spray roses, protea, hanging amaranthus and mixed textured greenery.  The new compote design style for 2016 is low, loose and elongated on the sides of the compote.  Thus creating a more oval shaped centerpiece instead of the traditional round.
