Hot Pink and Berry Orchids

We love a bright pop of color!  Here are some awesome shots by Storybook Photography of our designs that incorporated a splash of hot pink and berry using a mix of blooms including ORCHIDS!!

Tall pedestals and low metallic vases lined the long farm table.

Berry and hot pink phalenopsis and dendrobium orchids were featured in all of the pieces.

A bright orchid bloom at each place setting was a fun touch.

We loved the gold and berry shades together on one table.

A special thanks to Heartland Estate for letting us borrow their venue for this exciting photo shoot!

Organic Table Scape at Heartland Estate

This rustic table was full of organic elements at a new historic farm venue, Heartland Estate.  From the wood platforms to the succulents and greenery used in the arrangements, each detail reflected the organic theme.  Images by Storybook Photography.

The overall idea was to showcase textures over colors, so we kept the general color scheme mostly neutral.

Blue thistle added the only bright pop of color in the mixed greenery.

Each place setting had a coordinating, but not matching, cluster of organic elements.

Even orchids can be organic and rustic in the right setting!

We tucked succulents in anywhere we could!

The key to this rustic table setting was using lots of different varieties of greenery and organic elements in natural shapes and tones.

Your Fall Color Palette- How to add autumn without pumpkins and leaves

We love when autumn begins and we get to design with all the textures and colors that the season brings.  While we love rich gold and orange tones, fall flowers don't have to be limited to the traditional color palette.  Here are some examples we designed just in the last few weeks for clients who wanted an autumn feel without the pumpkins and fall leaves.

This bouquet featured seeded eucalyptus, a greenery that most people visually associate with fall.  We also used mums, another fall texture, but in a berry color instead of the traditional orange, yellow, or red.  The deep shades of berry and the fall textures give a sense of fall in non-traditional and beautiful way.

The mantle flowers for this event have the same berry tones, but with dark purple added.  The addition of the purple gives one more layer to the color palette while still representing the fall tones and textures of the season.

Don't be afraid to add neutral tones to fall.  Here, we added some white hydrangea in the background of this centerpiece that was primarily berry, burgundy, and purple.  With the fall magnolia and seeded eucalyptus for greenery, this has become one of our favorite new seasonal combinations.

You can even take the neutral tones one stem further by adding in some champagne and toning down the purple.  This bouquet still had magnolia and eucalyptus, but used the textures and buds of the blooms to invoke a fall feeling, even in a more subdued color palette.

These fun designs are a few of the numerous ways that autumn can be an element of your design, even if red, yellow, and orange aren't in your vision.

Sisters is Now Offering Interactive Party Favors

"Action Stations" are becoming a popular addition to may parties and events.  These stations offer guests a chance to participate in a celebration like never before.  For instance, some guests may get to see their food made as they wait or observe cigar rolling for their take-home enjoyment.  Sisters Floral Design Studio has come up with their own version of this fun trend.  We now offer your guests a chance to learn how to arrange flowers right at your event-- and we do all the work!

Here's how it works:

The Design Studio staff will come to your party and bring all the supplies needed- flowers, containers, tools, etc.  We will set up in the designated area like we did here for a recent bridal shower at a client's home.

Design Team member/s will stay to guide your guests in choosing a container, selecting flowers, and arranging them to take home.  It's a nice little gift for them, but it's not just flowers, it's also the knowledge and experience of handling the flowers themselves!

The guests at this bridal shower really enjoyed the camaraderie with their fellow guests and family members.

Here is the guest of honor choosing her blooms with a smile!

The bride's mother and grandmother got in on the fun, too!

Here are all the wonderful pieces the guests of the bridal shower created.  A fun time had by all!

Contact the Design Team to find out more information about our Interactive Party Favors for your next event!

We LOVE Wreaths!

Wreaths can be a fun addition to your event or wedding.  Here are just a few examples of how we have helped our clients add a special touch using wreaths. 

These sweet carnation wreaths adorned the chapel doors at this wedding.

Here's another gorgeous way to incorporate a wreath into a ceremony.  We attached this wreath to the back of the bride and groom's chairs at the front of the church.

Greenery wreaths are also a fresh, fun way to soften ceremony doors.  These are made entirely of boxwood.

For a special added touch, this bride included their initials on these boxwood wreaths.

What can we say?  We LOVE wreaths!

Fantastic Coral Peonies!

Heidi and Josh were married in May and wanted a bright and natural look to their wedding.  Heidi got some of the most gorgeous peonies we have ever seen in our studio for her bridal bouquet.  Frankly, we were in love with those coral blooms!  Though rare, the coral peonies are becoming more and more available from year to year.  Here are some images by Shelly Goodman Photography.

Coral peonies, ivory tulips, peach ranunculus, waxflower and loose draping greenery made up this stunning bouquet.

These two were so sweet!

A peach ranunculus for Josh to match his bride.

Probably one of our favorites to date.

The maids carried peach garden roses and fillers in the coral and yellow with draping natural greenery.

Best wishes to the bride and groom and their family!

Trendy Cascade Bouquets??

Often times, we hear clients refer to "old-fashioned cascade bouquets" as something outdated and not for them.  Recently, we have had an abundance of clients requesting and sending pictures of bouquets that definitely have cascade bouquet characteristics, but with a modern flair. We like to call them mock cascades.  These bouquets do have draping blooms and greenery and are not tight and round.  They have flowers that are more forward-facing as opposed to the hand-tied bouquet look.  However, they are not the old-fashioned teardrop shape and exhibit more of a natural, asymmetrical look.  These mock cascades take all the good points of the popular hand-tied and more traditional cascades and fuse them into something romantic, textural, and modern.  Here are some examples of a few mock cascades we have done just this wedding season.

This example uses the popular blush and ivory tones with natural greenery and soft blooms to create a look that is very unique and romantic.

This bridal bouquet is bright and exciting!  It has many different types of smaller flowers to create a "just picked" look straight from the garden.

The shape of this cascade is more compact than the previous examples, but is still very natural and asymmetrical.  This bouquet has peonies in the background to add to it's lush beauty.

As we speak to more and more clients, we are seeing a trend towards a more natural feel and shape to bouquets and centerpieces.  We hope it continues as we really love this entire look and all that we can create within it!
