An Ikebana inspired design of phalaenopsis orchids, passion flower vine and sedum. Designed to look like it's growing from a rock-like container with a manzanita branch.

A selection of images of the personal flowers from Megan's wedding. Top - beautiful Megan. 2nd - Her amazing brooch bouquet. 3rd - Bridesmaids bouquets were of; peonies, astilbe and anemone and bling. 4th - My favorite Florissimo corsage to date, a ranunculus bloom and astilbe on a bling bracelet with a small brooch accent. Lastly, a crisp anemone boutonniere. I loved everything about this wedding.

An elevated centerpiece of silk phalaenopsis orchids, hydrangea, astilbe and manzanita branches. Crystals and votives suspended from the branches give the piece a chandelier effect.

A mix of new and vintage brooches collared with silver spangled ribbon. This type of bouquet has become a big part of the vintage wedding trend, taking something old and making it new. I bet there is not a grandmother in the world that would not be pleased with her granddaughter using her costume jewelry in a bridal bouquet. No flowers, but still very pretty, and I do love the concept.

The 2014 Pantone color of the year is "Radiant Orchid" (a slightly pink lavender,) and is a welcome addition to the blush bridal floral trend. Since blue is such a rarity in the floral kingdom, lavender brings a nice "cool down" to our color palette.
Top - A hand tied bouquet of cool water roses, pink ranunculus, silver brunia and dusty miller.
Middle - An elevated centerpiece of hydrangeas, cool water roses, lavender carnations, phalaenopsis orchids (a great example of the Pantone color I mentioned,) dusty miller and bling.
Bottom - A different take on the centerpiece trio with lavender roses, gems and mokara orchids on green wire to give some movement to the design. A hip look for not a lot of money.

Something interesting and beautiful always happens in this lovely dining room. This year it was metallics, blue/teal and brown. The china pattern was our inspiration springboard, elegant and unexpected, I just love it!
