In season flowers

  Using in season summer flowers is a great way to guarantee perfection in your floral product. This bridal bouquet consisted of dahlias, garden roses, stock, freesias, lisianthus, white solidago and ranuculas. All of these flowers are available from summer to fall. Of course you can get them most times of year, but the cost will be greater and the quality won’t be as good.

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

Something White

  A beautiful bouquet of Vendela ivory Roses covered in white Gardenias.  This bouquet had the most amazing scent!  Can you imagine 17 gardenias?  It was quite sweet. The bridesmaids wore dusty lavender dresses, all with Ivory flowers.  What a beautiful wedding party! The beautiful Bride & Groom. Our bride Farida, is from the Dayton area but she is currently is Medical School in Chicago.  She met her photographer Andrew, of John Andrews Photography and realized he was the wedding photographer for her.  So he made the treck to Dayton, all 272 miles to shoot this amazing wedding!  And wow, was it worth it!  Check out more of his work at JohnAndrewsphotography.com

Rose of the week

 SWEETNESS “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” We are starting a “Rose of the week post.” Each rose is grown from its individual grower/farm somewhere in the world.  Roses are grown in California, Equador and many more countrys and states.  Each has its own unique name, style and smell. This rose, for instance is called “Sweetness.” It is conisdered a white-ish rose with a hot pink edge. The edge isnt consistant from one rose to the next, but I think that is what makes it unique. It isnt a large head rose; it has around 25 petals per stem. That is a standard size rose in the floral industry. It has a very sweet (no pun intended) smell, but its not overwhelming. This color is perfect for the bride that wants just a hint of her color in her bouquet, using the hot pink as an accent, of course
