Rustic Elegance ~ a Wedding Floral Story

This past weekend we created an elegant and natural bouquet for our bride Carla and I was so pleased with how it turned out. Peach Juliette Garden roses partnered with peach and orange colored ranunculus, jasmine vine, hoya foliage and touches of ruscus combined to make an elegant yet natural looking bridal bouquet.  The centerpieces were all created in rustic wooden boxes, with some being square and some be rectangular. They were styled using loose and airy elements like lace flowers, fever few, vines, ranunculus, garden roses seeded eucalyptus, stock and hypericum berries.   To see more of the stunning wedding be sure to visit our wedding website at www.perfectweddingflowers.com

April is Stress Awareness Month

Did you know April is Stress Awareness Month?  Finding healthy ways to deal with everyday stress is key to a happier and healthier lifestyle.  Here are some ideas on how to reduce stress and create a more balanced, enjoyable life.

Take time out of the day for relaxation.  Sit down and listen to some of your favorite music, read a book you have put off, or create an art project you would not normally have time for.  Make time for yourself to enjoy things that bring natural joy and you will not feel so controlled by life's everyday responsibilities.

Get some fresh air.  Enjoy a long walk, go to a park or beach and simply take in nature's scenery.  Recognize the natural beauty all around us (including fresh flowers!)


Indulge in meditation, yoga or a massage.  Balancing your physical health through meditation or yoga is a great way to centralize your mind and body.  If you have time, book a massage and while you get rid of those knots in your back your mind will relax and rejuvenate.…

Wow Flowers!

So you are having an event and you want something for the tables but you don't have much money to spend? Well, big is not always better and when it down pop it out with color, color, color. Hey that could be a song, don't you think? Take these centerpieces for example; created for an event at Princeton University today. In this case a tight budget and a zillion tables (well, actually it was more like 80 but still a lot) meant that we had to really stand out with something that was going to be cost effective but memorable. Colorful gerbera daisies and underwater light to the rescue. These may not be huge but they sure are cute, don't you think?
