Memorial Stadium Wedding – Soft Corals and Whites

Wanting a subtle nod to the colors of their Alma Mater this couple chose a palate with lots of whites, a deep peacock, and soft coral. The results were elegant and classic, while still being fresh and interesting. Local photographer Holly Birch captured these wonderful images.

Urbana Wedding Florist – Iced Plum

While we are still enjoying the last few warm days of the year – I was reminded that winter is just around the corner. This wintery wedding photographed by Vivid Studios, Inc makes those colder days seem a little more appealing. Soft lavenders and bold plums were blended with soft whites to compliment the lacy white of the bride’s dress and the grape purple on the bridesmaids.

Champaign IL Wedding Florist – Contrasting Navy and Coral

This gorgeous spring wedding featured a beautiful combination of contrasting cobalts and corals with chevron and silver accents. The ceremony took place at the elegant University Place Christian Church with a reception following at the Refinery. We love the look of the lush rose mixture in shades of corals, soft oranges, and warm pinks against the bride’s ivory lace gown and contrasting navy bridesmaids dresses.

An elegant altar arrangement played double duty across the head table at the reception. Simple  cylinder vases filled with stock, orange gladiola, and gerbera daisies brought color and whimsy to each table.

Urbana Wedding Florist – Pops of Purple

With both the ceremony and reception taking place at the charming Silver Creek Restaurant, for this wedding we wanted the flowers to echo the understated elegance of the venue. With a palate of purples, mini calla lilies in deep plum and the ever popular Picasso, ivory with a purple throat, were our clear choice.









Thank you to Cheryl and Patrick for choosing our floral arrangements to compliment your wedding day.

Mikey and Katie Meints of K Design Photography took these lovely images. Thank you guys for capturing our work so beautifully. See more of their wonderful photographs on their blog.


Central Illinois Wedding Florist – Naturally Romantic

Wisps of willow and creamy ivory berries bring a hint of nature to this white and ivory bridal bouquet.

The bridesmaids carried simpler bouquets featuring the lush cremones and hydrangea of the bridal bouquet.

Thank you to Lauren and Matt for choosing us to be your florist. Thank you to Tracy of Fully Alive Photography for sharing such stunning images with us.


Urbana Wedding Florist – Spring Has Sprung

For this spring wedding, abstract floral bridesmaids dresses led us to this fresh palate of white, soft orange, lime, yellow, and a touch of lavender. One of our main goals was to compliment but not compete with these springy dresses.

Thank you to the sweet bride for trusting us to bring your vision to life. It was a blessing to work with you!

And another big thank you to Melissa Helm of M Failla Photography, for sharing her beautiful images with us.


Central Illinois Wedding Florist – Vintage Romance

I just can’t say enough how blessed we are to work with all the wonderful brides who choose Blossom Basket to be their wedding florist. Miss C. was no exception. Poised and full of imagination it was a thrill to see her vision come to life!

The bride’s bouquet was full of texture and warmth: Off whites, creamy ivories, and a hint of blush and peach in romantic and vintage textures. For the bridesmaids’ we kept the flowers types the same for constancy in texture but infused more color.

The outdoor aisle was lined with large pots of gypsophila (baby’s breath).

For centerpieces she chose a very deconstructed look that featured loose flowers in heirloom and vintage containers.

The flower girl carried a small nosegay of baby’s breath and berries.

Thank you to the amazingly talented Shannon Leigh Anderson for sharing these beautiful images. See more of her work on her site.



Champaign Wedding Florist – Purple and Yellow

Jess from Mark Romine Photography just sent over some beautiful images from an April  3rd wedding that took place in Champaign, Ill.

The bride carried a medium handtied boquet of purple stock, dianthus, and lisianthus with white and yellow roses. Her bridesmaids carried sunny bouquets of yellow and white roses accented with yellow billy balls (Craspedia) to stand out against thier eggplant dresses.

The groom wore a yellow rose boutonniere accented with a billy ball. To coordinate the groomsmen sported roses and the ushers just the billy balls.
