Stacked bouquet

This style of bouquet is very unique. It's an example of a stacked bouquet that uses different types of flowers in layers instead of mixed together. This was a bridal bouquet that we did in April.

The top layer is mini callas, the second layer is ivory roses, and the third layer is mini gerbera daisies.

Stacked bouquets usually have a more linear shape verses a rounded shape like most bouquets.

This is what the bridesmaid carried. It was a mixed, round version of what the bride carried in similar flowers and colors. The stacked bouquet gave the bride something that would really stand out, while the bridesmaid had something more traditional.

Bright Colors and Texture

These bouquets are great examples of bright mixed colors and LOTS of texture! They are from a wedding we did this month.

This bridal bouquet was a shop favorite here at Sisters that week. It included purple stock, mini callas, lisianthus, blue thistle, fuchsia heather, and looped lily grass (and later purple anemones). We LOVED all the textures and brightness!

The bridesmaids' bouquets had the opposite color scheme of the bride's. Fuchsia stock, anemones, heather, purple lisianthus, and looped lily grass made up these gorgeous hand-tied bouquets.

We had a lot of fun using these flowers and colors together for one wedding!!

Amazing Anemones

Anemones are a great flower to use if you have a spring or early summer event. They are a very versatile flower that comes in lots of colors. They are similar to a poppy and usually have a dark center. Here are a few snapshots of how we have used them recently.

Here are white anemones with full sized dark red roses.

These anemones are a very bright pink.

Anemones are a very beautiful flower full of texture and interest. They are easily made to accent other flowers or to make a statement on their own.

Classic Black and White at the MAC

This wedding was last fall at the MAC and used black and white in a classic and beautiful way.

Black was used as an accent, seen in the chair covers, favors, menu cards, and the glassware for the centerpieces. All the flowers at the reception were whites and ivories.

Half of the tables had these tall vases with a ball of white lilies, roses, tulips, and filler.

To contrast. the other half had these black bubble bowls filled with tulips, hydrangea, ranunculus, filler, etc.

These rented candelabras accented both ends of the head table and were decorated with all white, trailing flower pieces.

The end product of the classic black and white in this room was gorgeous and just what the bride and groom envisioned!

White Flower Hedge and Carnation Spheres

This was a very unique wedding reception at Maryland Walk in Clayton. The bride came to us with a vision of a flower hedge for the head table and round carnation spheres for the bar. Here is what we arranged for the event.

The ten foot flower hedge lined the table and made a great arrangement for the head table.

Gerber daisies, hydrangeas, roses, carnations, and spray roses were all included in this flower piece.

The guest tables were accented with rectangle vases filled with tall calla lilies.

The all white flower scheme worked well in this space with the bright pattered linens on the tables.

These large carnation spheres decorated the bar. The vases were filled with the bride's gumballs.

These arrangements stood over three feet tall with the 14-16 inch round spheres of carnations.

We had a great time working on this event! Special thanks to the bride and groom for having us be a part of their special day!

Terra Cotta and Eggplant

This was a beautiful mix of colors and flowers. We used eggplant mini callas and terra cotta roses in this bridal bouquet.

Both the ceremony and reception were held at the Westin.

We arranged two tall rectangles with submerged mini callas and roses to be used as "altar pieces."

Thanks to Engaging Events by Amy for coordinating a great event!!
Our best to the bride and groom!
