    This was a trial run for a bride whose wedding is in May. Her colors are blue and white. The bouquet is made up of blue hydrangea, cream Vendela roses, ivory Crystal Blush mini-calla lilies and salal leaves wrapped in antique white satin ribbon. The final version will have the addition of stephanotis blooms with pearl accents.

    We also did a mock up for the centerpieces. It features blue hydrangea, white Casablanca lilies with salal leaves and bear grass in a rectangle vase wrapped with ribbon and pearl pins to compliment the buttons on the back of the bride’s gown. The table will have white linens with a tiffany blue overlay. The centerpiece will be accented by glass gems and pearls in various shades, from clear glass to light blue and pearly white, scattered amongst votive candles.

    Those of you that know me, know that I’m not exactly a “girlie” girl. So to say that I love pink would be a stretch. However, I love the way the darker shades of pink mix together in this bouquet to add so much depth and drama. While brighter and lighter shades of pink often feel preppy and feminine, this mix seems almost sultry and romantic.

    This bouquet is made up of raspberry red Black Bacarra roses, mauve mini-cymbidium orchids, Crystal Glow mini-calla lilies and loops and sprays of bear grasss. The stems are wrapped in antique white satin with a lilac french wrap overlay.

    Now that the hustle and bustle of Christmas and New Year’s is behind us, lots of 2008 brides are shifting into high gear for all their planning. So, while I haven’t had a whole lot of events over the last few weeks, I’ve been super busy planning the upcoming ones!

    Being the visual thinker that I am, I always like to talk design in pictures, so we’re talking the same language – heaven knows that “coral” may mean anything from peachy red-orange to sunny pink. In all the Google Image searching to talk apples to apples with my brides, I’ve uncovered a new obsession… inspiration boards. I love all the details that really pull together a theme or color palette. Since my husband is a graphic designer, I’m bugging him for crash courses in PhotoShop to create floral inspiration boards to go along with my quotes.

    As you can see, I’m still quite a novice at making it look “good”, but I love being able to give a bride one full page size photo file to print off and save for reference as she continues her planning.
