This Weekends Wedding - Mid June 2012

 The weekend of June 15th and 16th had us doing three full sized weddings and what fun we had working on 3. Ah, how can you go wrong with sunny yellow in June? Imagine the brides maids carrying these as they walk down the aisle at the Molly Pitcher in out on the water in Red Bank. The bouquet above was made using bright yellow gerbera daisies, Gelosia roses, cream hydrangea, white and yellow daisy pom poms and yellow craspedia (billy balls - hehehe). How bright and vibrant they are and we can't wait to see the professional shots of bride Amy's brides maids carrying these adorable bouquets. A nautical themed wedding, accents of blue were added to the centerpieces, place card and altar decor but for the bouquets we simply added a navy and white striped ribbon for the nautical touch. Below is the bridal bouquet of white roses, and white mini gerbera daisies accented with those round yellow Craspedia. A touch of lime green make it all pop and give a very fresh and natural feel to the bouquets, don't you think?
 Below is the super cool and very artsy bouquet we created for our bride Linzee (even her name is cool). All white mini callas accented with interest teal wire balls and black gems on wire, finished with dutch hosta leaves. If you were looking for the norm here, you won't find it. This bride as funky but cool taste and we loved creating her wedding flowers.
I love how we used the Teal ribbon and then the black bead wire for a an extra accent to follow the 2 accent colors into the bouquet. I'll be sure to post photos of the centerpieces, which are just as cool!
 The brides maids bouquet are simple wand style bouquets of just 3 full size callas.  Teal ribbon to match the gowns, imagine how nicely these will show in all the photos.
 Our bride Sarah loves purple. After doing her sister wedding last year (her colors were all shades of orange) it was an honor to be chosen by the family to help out once again with this natural and vintage themed wedding at the Breakers in Spring Lake. Roses, carnations, stock, limonium, hydrangeas and pops of branched solidago, make a colorful but textured bouquet without looking to wild or careless. The bride maids carried exactly the same combination of flowers but smaller in size. I love that look, so simple and natural.
I'll be sure to post photos of the centerpieces to show the completed look for each wedding. To see these are more of our wedding designs visit our facebook page at or our wedding website at

All of Your Prom Corsage and Boutonniere Questions- Answered!
What is a prom corsage? A prom corsage is a small floral arrangement to be worn on a female’s wrist or collar. The prom corsage is typically purchased and given to her by her prom date. The wrist corsage is the most common kind, and is typically chosen to match the prom dress.
What is a boutonniere? A boutonniere is a floral design worn by a male on the lapel of a suit or tux. The boutonniere is typically bought for him by his prom date and is chosen to match the prom corsage.
What wrist is the corsage worn on? Proper etiquette calls for the corsage to be worn on the left wrist, unless the person wearing it is left-handed. If left-handed, the corsage can be worn on the right wrist.

Do the corsage and boutonniere have to match? It is not a rule that they match, however the couple will look more put together if they do. The boutonniere gives a touch of color to match the male to his prom date though a simple flower.

How to Make a Flower Puppy

It's amazing what you can do with 12 carnations and a little bit of creativity. Our Floral Designer Rocio loves making puppy arrangements so here she shares her tips with you! Here's what you will need ~ 12 full size carnations, floral glue, floral tape, a floral container, 1/3 of a block of floral foam and some assorted greenery.  First take your wet floral foam and tape it securely into your floral container.  Slowly start adding the 12 carnations starting with the top to form the head, the ears, the face and the 2 front legs. Keep going, adding carnations but only using 12 total! 
Now he has his 2 front legs, sitting over the edge of the container.  Using the floral glue, add the eyes and the nose. Be creative here. We use eyes and noses for the floral industry but you can use felt, screws or even a pip cleaner to form these facial features.   Next, start filling in with assorted greenery and mosses. This will become his little bed!  Be sure to fill in along the back. Reme…
