Wedding Floral Trend: Tropicals

Leave a comment

While roses and hydrangea are romantic and timeless staples of the bridal bouquet, some edgier additions are trending that pack some serious punch in the way of texture, color, and form. Orchids, anthuriums, proteas, and other tropical flowers and foliage have been popping everywhere–and not just in beach weddings! Curious about adding some tropical touches to your wedding? We’ll walk you through some of the flower types we love that will give you that unique touch.

 

Orchids

Phalaenopsis, or moth orchids, are an elegant variety that comes in many bright colors, and striped and spotted patterns. Cattleyas, vandas, and mokaras are other orchid types that come in every color of the rainbow.

Anthurium

Anthuriums can be an eye-grabbing statement element of a bouquet, or a subtle accent.

Proteas

The king protea is a showstopper in a bridal bouquet, centerpiece, or arch installation. Pink mink proteas are a similar but smaller variety. Pincushion proteas get their name from the “pincushion” shape–a uniquely distinct texture in an arrangement. The aptly named blushing bride protea has a softer look that’s sure to stun.

Tropical Leaves

Monsteras, palms, banana trees, aralia and ferns all have distinctive foliage that is attention-grabbing. Adding them to a bridal bouquet creates interesting contrast, and just a few leaves in a centerpiece can transform your event to a tropical paradise!

Ultra Violet: The 2018 Pantone Color of the Year

Leave a comment

Ladies and gentlemen, the Pantone Color of the Year is here and we are in LOVE! Ultra Violet is this year’s “chosen one” and we could not be happier!

The quote below is so inspiring from Leatrice Eiseman, the Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, because she explains that Ultra Violet is a versatile color that does not fit into a single mold. Being able to use a color in so many different ways allows it to be accessible to everyone. This year, Ultra Violet does just that.

 

Fashion, makeup, interior design, and graphic art are already displaying the wide range of Ultra violet in their everyday projects. There are new products coming out every day that display the beauty of this Pantone creation.

Pantone doesn’t just show you the color of the year with nothing else to compare it to. They make collections of colors that work beautifully with the featured Ultra Violet. Each Collection gives options to mix and match for a dream color combination. Ultra Violet is 2018’s hot wedding color. Pantone is making sure that you know the perfect combination for your wedding in whatever season you are planning for.

With all these options, there is a world of possibility for combinations for events and life. Trends with Ultra Violet may be lacking this year since the color of the year is usually more prevalent during the following year. However, if you want to be ahead of the curve, this year is the year to have an Ultra Violet event. Ultra Violet is the perfect color to bring bright colors without shocking the guests at your event or wedding. Since this year’s color of the year is a dark purple with a little pop it fits into so many color schemes. Being able to incorporate this beautiful color in events will make them showstoppers!

 

Asian Inspired Garden Wedding

Leave a comment

This couple were such a pleasure to work with in bringing their vision to life. They wanted their love for Asian culture to shine through in every element of their special summer garden wedding at The Nasher Sculpture Center.  For their Asian inspired affair, we used whites with pops of coral, mango and peach including white roses, white hydrangeas, white and mango calla lilies, dahlias, phalaenopsis orchids, freesia, greenery, and seasonal branches.It was very important to our bride that her bridal bouquet not compete but in fact compliment her gorgeous gown and silver jeweled belt. As guests arrived to the wedding they were greeted with a romantically modern design.The happy couple said, ‘I Do’ framed by two lush alter pieces with an artistic yet romantic feel. Along the walkway to the garden, we set up two of our custom metal frames with bronze/copper bamboo poles placed inside. Along the bamboo poles we made small notches for the guests’ escort cards to be placed in. Adding a few simple pops of floral, small branches, and greenery gave the frames added texture and a soft Asian feel.

A special thank you the vendor team that made their wedding a night to remember.

Jeff and Joe wanted the look of their wedding to be a complete representation of who they are. Along with influences from their Hispanic culture; they wanted the overall feel to be bright, elegant, masculine, and organic. To bring the happy couple’s vision to life we used vibrant blooms of reds, oranges, purples, greens and bronze-copper accents; to include hydrangea, ranunculus, roses, anemones, bullet allium, lotus pods, poppies, coxcomb, hanging amaranthus, and seasonal greenery. We also used fun textures including lotus pods, driftwood, and succulents.

A special thank you the vendor team that made Jeff & Joe’s day one to remember.
