Labor Day Weekend Wedding Extravaganza!

What a wonderful and busy week we had here at Blossom Basket!

It is hard to capture the excitement and hard work that went into these floral creations with just words and pictures. Maybe next time I’ll think to take picture of the design process … or maybe a video would be even better. But with all hands on deck designing,  who would hold the camera?

This simple yet sophisticated free form clutch featured large asiatic lily blooms surrounded by hydrangea with baby and seeded eucalyptus.  Janelle carried an artistic version of the traditional all white bridal bouquet. The bridesmaids carried a single stem of the asiatic lily accented with the same greens. The centerpieces carried through the simple sophistication with white dendrobium orchids and birch branches in tall eifel towers.

Sarah loves daisies, so this round garden style handtied was perfect for her outdoor wedding at the University’s Arboretum.  Yellow freesia, orange spray roses, circus roses, hypericum berries and solidago created a beautful warm color palate for late summer.

This color palate of oranges, yellows, and purples came together in a fresh and unique way with large purple cattleya orchids, mokara orchids, pin-cushion protea, orange spray roses, and hypericum berries for Skye’s September 5th wedding. The abundance of colorful blooms created an opulent look while the texture and shape of the flowers added an edgy element. Vivacious is a perfect work to describe both the bride and her gorgeous choice in flowers.

The dark green color of the mini ti leaves adds contrast to the brides ivory and yellow handtied bouquet. This bouquet features asiatic liles, vendella roses, hydrangea, and yellow freesia. The bridesmaids carried small handtieds of all yellow blooms with ti leaves surrounding.

Sweet and romantic combinations of blues and lavenders filled all of the floral arrangements for Terri’s outdoor wedding ceremony. The bride carried a round handied bouquet filled with roses, hydrangea, delphinium; dendrobium orchids, stock, lizianthus, corn flowers, and freesia. The bridemaids carried smaller bouquets of the same flowers. For the reception Terri chose 2 styles of  centerpieces in matching flowers; one in a short cube vase to add color in the plane of the table tops and the other a tall design in an eifel tower vase to add a canopy of flowers over the entire reception.

Bold and dramatic purples and plums were accented with phesant feathers, willow branches, and loops of lily grass in an avant-garde style  for Ruthie. Ivy and italian pittosporum added texture as the back drop for Schwartzwalder mini calla lilies, Moon Vista Dianthus, Dendrobium Orchid buds and hot purple Phalaenopsis orchid blooms. The mini calla lily and calathea leaf boutonnieres and corsages echoed the style of the other bouquets with touches of feathers, willow, orchids buds, and berries.   Stunning and Stylish.
