BOUQUET OF THE WEEK: A Bridesmaid’s Bouquet with Terra Cotta, Amber and Pumpkin Roses, Quail Feathers and Chocolate Velvet

September 28, 2011

The warm tones of terra cotta, amber and pumpkin look lovely in a casual mixture of roses, sweetheart roses and pincushion protea. Playful wisps of brown and cream-spotted quail’s feathers add a touch of autumn whimsy to the posy.

And although you can’t feel it, the stems of the bouquet were wrapped in soft sable brown velvet ribbon. Rich, vibrant and ready for Fall Weddings.

Bridal Bouquet of the Week: Vibrant Summer Flowers in Tangerine, Orange, Coral, Cerise and Magenta

April 18, 2011


Combining different types of flowers adds texture to the look of a hand-tied bouquet.  For instance, using large-headed flowers with smaller blooms nestled in between at different depths successfully creates visual impact, texture and drama.  For a Summer wedding, stunning bridesmaids’ bouquets were composed for seven different ladies using brightly colored flowers such as Cerise Mini Gerbera, Tangerine Spray Roses, Orange Tulips, Coral Tree Peonies, Magenta Peonies and Mango Sweetheart Roses.  It seems that today’s sophisticated brides enjoy knowing that although the floral components used for their bouquets may be the same, how those blooms are arranged may be as uniquely formed as the bridesmaids themselves.  No two are exactly the same.
