Pops of Color

Sometimes having a pastel color scheme doesn't mean you should shy away from bright colors. Here are two weddings that had somewhat subdued color schemes with pops of color.

The bride's bouquet had peach and white accents to her bright pink peonies. Her bridesmaids' bouquets stayed very subdued in just whites and blush pinks.

The centerpieces at the Piper Palm House carried through the pastel peaches and pinks with the pops of pink peonies.

Another bride we had that same weekend also used a pastel color scheme and added in pops of orange. Her bridal bouquet was a very sweet mix of ivories and blush pinks with bright orange ranunculus to accent.

Her bridesmaids carried a slightly brighter version, but still with the ivories and pinks.

Bright kissing ball for the flowergirl!

The centerpieces at Eden Seminary also had pops of orange mixed in with gardeny whites and blush pinks.

Bright colors can mix well with pastels and add an extra "pop" to your event.

Very Cool Flower Lamps!

Just as of the centerpieces from Emily and Mike's reception (you saw their ceremony in a previous blog). Emily wanted this lamp look for her reception at Neo. We incorporated her hot pink color with gladiolas that were contained within a large cylinder vase.

We then added the lampshade on top (with LED lights inside) and an LED disc at the base. The whole arrangement was lit up like an actual lamp. It was very cool and contemporary and went well with the space at Neo.

The opposite tables had three vases of hot pink flowers-one with hydrangea, one with peonies and one with carnations.

The long head table was decorated with the bouquets from the ceremony. The whole event had a very sleek look with the bride's pops of pink!

Bright and Fresh

This wedding had such a refreshing seasonal feel for early summer. Crisp whites, yellows and greens were the main colors.

These bouquets, in the window at the church, were what the bridesmaids carried. The bridal bouquet- held below by a bridesmaid- had the same flowers but with added green cymbidium orchids.

We think all of our brides are gorgeous!

The guys' bouts. were a mix of green hypericum berries and yellow solidago.

The centerpieces at the City Museum were a mix of high and low arrangements. The tall vases included hanging votives that added an extra ambiance once the lights were dimmed.

Luminous Light at the Planetarium

The Planetarium in Forest Park is such an awesome venue for a reception. We recently worked there with centerpieces that had a "twinkle" all their own!!

These tall cylinder vases were filled with apples and curly willow. Iris and orchids added color and a disc LED light made the water glow.

Short, lush arrangements with LED lights decorated the opposite tables.

The Planetarium was dotted with beams of light on the tables and on the ceiling! This is an example of how table decor can really add to the design of a wedding--highlighting not only the small details, but the big picture at the venue as well!

Beautiful Tent Reception

This gorgeous set-up was for a wedding reception we did in Cuba, MO at the groom's family's lake house. The linens, tent, and flowers all flowed so well together with the backdrop of their beautiful home.

This sweet bride brought us her own vases in all shapes and sizes. We designed a different arrangement for each vase in her colors with a very gardeny feel.
