I did two smaller events this past weekend. The first was flowers for Lindsay who had her bridal shower at Arrowhead Golf Club in Wheaton. The space had a lot of mahogany colored woodwork and forest green accents, so we wanted to warm it up with some rich, but feminine tones. We did 3 short round centerpieces of magenta peonies, burgundy and ivory tulips with a ti leaf wrap inside surrounded by votive candles. On the mantel, we displayed photos of the couple flanked by 2 trios of submerged ivory tulip cylinders with ivory floating candles at top. In the foyer on the punch table, we had a 14″ cylinder vase with curly willow and lily grass accents along with sculptural ivory tulips. I also made a pearl bracelet ivory wrist corsage for Lindsay to wear and added an ivory ribbon to the gift card holder. Everything fit the space and them so beautifully.
I also did flowers for my friend Kara Schultz’s Studio Opening this past Sunday. I used her new logo colors as the inspiration for flowers. I used blue thistle, red tulips, burgundy mokara orchids, brown mini cymbidium orchids, and mustard yellow Billy Balls to make 4 accent pieces to be displayed in the new space. They turned out really cool and Kara loved them.
Here are pro photos that Kara took below…
