Coral and Peach Wedding for late September

This past weekend was a whirl wind of party activity include 4 weddings but I have to admit that my favorite color theme of the weekend was this peach and coral themed wedding for Bride Kristen. Using green  hydrangeas, peach berries and garden roses, coral Amsterdam roses and accents of navy blue Viburnum berries really made for striking bouquets. The girls dresses were navy so I'm hoping that Kristen shares photos because I can only imagine how these looked when the brides maids carried them. 
 Not only is the color amazing but the texture was awesome on these bouquets also. We were not sure until the last minute that we could get the viburnum berries and had a back up plan of deep blue delphinium, just in case. The berries were so different than what we usually do that it was a nice change for us as well.
By the time the wedding went from bouquets to centerpieces, the centerpieces were much more muted at the brides request with three different styles of centerpieces including lots of candles and they elegant cylinder vases filled with peach hydrangeas, coral and peach roses and peach berries. Touches of curly willow add a pop of fall to the look.  
Elegant tall centerpieces with lush mounds of peach, green and white hydrangeas were another style of centerpiece. The 24" tall cylinder vases were also filled with loops of fresh curly willow. As you can see from the photo below, it was an amazing day at the Jersey shore, perfect for a beach wedding
Do you also love the peach and coral color theme?

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…

How to Carry a Bridal Bouquet. It's not so hard....

People often ask me what is the right way to hold a bridal bouquet. I know some ladies think it's going to be hard but truthfully, even a cascade is very easy to carry. As in the example to the right, that's me holding a very sweet tear drop shaped bouquet (compliments of our bride Coleen). As you can see, I'm able to hold the bouquet with one hand and it's not uncomfortable for me in anyway.

The key to holding a cascade is to drop it down to the waist  level. I've seen many pictures of girls holding their bouquets too high, which is a very uncomfortable way to hold these. Second, holding it too high, especially in the case of the bride, blocks all the beautiful detail of their dresses. Remember, when you are walking down the aisle you want to appear relaxed and natural!

Another issue I've seen is to point the bottom of the bouquet outwards. Make sure that the bouquets sits nice and flush against your body. This will give you the best possible view in the pictu…
