Urbana Wedding Florist – Falling for Purples

Just because your wedding is in the fall doesn’t mean you automatically love oranges, rusts, and other ‘fall colors’. That is ok, almost any color can be used during any season of the year. We can help you find the right combination of colors and textures to help your color palate pair with the season for the perfect floral arrangements for your wedding. To help the brides pick of purple fit for the fall season we used dark plum dianthus and dark purple stock for rich color and texture.

While the bridesmaids carried small hand tied bouquets in shades of purple, the bride opted for a more traditional bridal bouquet for herself. Her white teardrop cascade of roses and lilies was kissed with purple stock and lavender limonium.

Thank you to the beautiful bride and her photographer, David Ghent for sharing these photographs.


Champaign Wedding Florist – Warms and Whites

Yes, I do know what it is winter verging on spring. However, I have just received photographs of another beautiful fall wedding we were blessed to work on.  These photos were provided for your viewing pleasure courtesy of the bride and her wonderful photographer Glen Dimock.

The bride carried a traditional bouquet of all white. Mini callas were tucked into a volume of roses and hydrangea for the perfect texture and added sophistication.

The bridesmaids carried smaller hand tied bouquets in a full breadth of fall colors. From lightest to darkest: yellow roses, peach hypericum, orange roses, ‘red’ freesia, and burgundy spray roses.


Urbana Wedding Florist – Fall Hues

Every bouquet we design for a bride is a custom commissioned work of floral art. To aid in communication between the consultant and the bride we can create “Bouquet Boards.” Much like “Mood Boards” used by interior designers to communicate their ideas for elements in a room, these “Bouquet Boards” help the bride see our understanding of their vision. It helps the mind’s eye to see all the elements collected together on one page.
Having agreed upon these flowers and colors the sweet and blissful bride left many of the details up to the expertise of our team of experienced wedding designers.


The bride and her bridesmaids carried textured hand tied bouquets in the full spectrum of fall colors: from reds to yellows, even with a touch of oak leaves for a truly fall texture.

The groom and entourage wore boutonnieres and corsages in similar shades featuring spray roses, berries, and alstroemeria.

Thank you to the happy couple for allowing Blossom Basket Florist to be part of your wedding.

Central Illinois Wedding Florist – Warm Tones of Early Fall

Early last fall Blossom Basket was blessed to be the wedding florist for this sweet Central Illinois couple.

Originally they had planned on using all roses (the bride’s favorite flower) in fall shades. But after spending some time looking through pictures, they decided to incorporate a few more types of flowers for texture and interest. We were all thrilled with how the flowers we chose came together into the perfect floral arrangements for them.

The bridesmaids wore red dresses with persimmon sashes. To carry these colors into the hand tied bridal bouquets we used the roses the bride loves so much to comprise the majority of the color and volume and then added mini callas, freesia, hypericum berries, and seeded eucalyptus for a wider range of colors and textures.

At the front of the lovely ornate sanctuary, two arrangements designed in coordinating colors decorated the alter. The additional piece on the left adorned the Unity Candle which had it own candle stand.

Thanks again to Julie Adcock of Downtown Design & Photography who captured and shared these lovely images.


Urbana Wedding Florist – Sunshine Yellow and True Blue

With a love for sunflower and a strong blue bridesmaid dress color chosen it was easy to help Ms. C (now Mrs. C) choose this winning combination. The bride carried a simple hand-tied bouquet of golden sunflowers while the bridesmaids carried torch shaped clusters of delphinium, dianthus and stock.

The groom wore a simple boutonniere of yellow spray roses to echo the yellow of his bride’s bouquet. While his groomsmen’s boutonnieres were comprised of delphinium to coordinate with the bridesmaids’ bouquets.

Thank you to the bride and groom for choosing Blossom Basket to help you bring a pop of color to your very happy day.

Allerton Park Wedding Florist – Meet Me in the Garden

… the sunken garden that is.

The lovely bride carried a garden inspired combination of white blooms. Each bridesmaid carried a simple but striking trio of full-sized white callas lilies.

The lush texture in this all white bouquet was accomplished by utalizing small bloom flowers of different shapes. The volume of the bouquet is primarily hydrangea and stock, with dendrobium orchids and mini calla lilies added as focal flowers. For greens combination of dark ruscus greens and lighter foxtail ferns were used to finish the bouquet.

To compliment the garden setting an arrangement of assorted flowers was set on either side of the stone stairway. Bright whites and greens were paired with assorted other colors to tied the bridal bouquet flowers into the colorful garden setting.

Thank you to the beautiful and happy couple for choosing Blossom Basket to create floral arrangements for your wedding day. We also owe a thank you to Downtown Design and Photography for capturing these beautiful images of our work and sharing them with us.
