Bright Colors at Lumen

These are some of our snapshots we took of a wedding reception we did in September at one of our favorite venues, Lumen. We created tall and short centerpieces in vibrant colors. The flowers really popped off of the black and white linens!

The "wall" at Lumen is another fun place to add some color with small vases of flowers.

Sleek Purples at the Palladium

Sarah and Adam were married this past August. Here are some fantastic pictures by Artisan of their day. Special thanks to Sabrina and the staff at Proposing Dreams for coordinating it all and making it flawless!

Sarah's bouquet was a mix of purples including callas, orchids, roses, and stock. It's linear and asymmetrical shape as very modern and sleek.

The reception at the Palladium used the same purple scheme from the ceremony.

Three different yet complimentary centerpieces decorated the guest tables.

Best wishes to Sarah and Adam!!

From Inspiration to a Dream Come True

One of our lovely brides from 2010 brought in this inspiration photo. She really liked the lushness and texture of this bouquet and fell in love with the pearl detail. At Sisters, we always want to give the bride whatever she wants for her bouquet. So, we took the bride's inspiration and used our special touch to make her magazine photo come to life for her wedding day. Take a look.

Inspiration photo above and the Sisters version below.

All in a day's work at Sisters!!!

This Looks Familiar!

Browsing through the pictures on Martha Stewart Weddings, we came across this one of a whimsical centerpiece using tea tins. We smiled to ourselves and pulled up a picture of our own! We did a very similar design last year for one of our brides who brought in her own decorated tea tins. Have a look!

Martha's version--

The Sisters version--

This is an interesting twist to the popular clustered vase look for table centerpieces. No two tables were the same for sure! Martha might be on to something......

Curly Willow = Texture!

For this fall wedding, we worked with a bride who wanted a little something out of the ordinary. She loved texture but wanted to take it a step further. We included curly willow in the bouquets and boutonnieres for an added shot of interest.

The bridal bouquet included dahlias, berries, roses and willow.

The willow made a cute accent to the boys' flowers, too! It's amazing how versatile a branch can be!

Holiday Party at the Chase

As promised, pictures of the flowers for the holiday party and fundraiser for St. Vincent's Children's Home. As with the previous holiday party, this client also chose not to use traditional holiday colors. We did short arrangements of white tulips, purple stock, blue hydrangea and filler with winter greens for the small guest tables. The taller arrangements for the food stations included silver birch, green fuji mums, purple iris, blue delphinium and filler. We thought these colors looked great in the Starlight Room and still had a winter-y feel.

Non-Traditional Holiday Colors

This holiday party was last week at the Double Tree in Chesterfield. Sisters worked closely with our corporate client to design these centerpieces for the tables. We based the design on the client's holiday invitation that included bright orange, green, pink, blue and purple.

Small vases of all the colors decorated the cocktail tables.
Three different centerpieces were used on the guest tables........

Version one was a cluster of three vases of solid colors of flowers.

Version two was also a cluster of three vases, but incorporated fruit in one of the vases.

Version three was a short, lush arrangement of all the colors and flowers mixed together.

Stay tuned for pictures of another holiday party we are doing today at the Chase that is also using non-traditional colors for their decorations.

Let's Hear It for the Boys!

We thought a blog featuring the guys might be appropriate, since we talk a lot about the girls around here! :) Here are some shots of the boys and their flowers. Guys at weddings are so cute!!
