Photo credit to the fabulous Lia Giannotti.

The day has arrived and the styled shoot that I was ecstatic to collaborate on last September has been picked up by, and published on the wedding blog, Borrowed & Blue! It was such a pleasure to work with all of the other super talented wedding professionals on this. Many thanks to Shelbi Britton Events, Lia Giannotti Photography, Sparky Noodle Bakery, The White Dress, EB Design Studio (Andi Harvey), Hair by Simona and Bridal Beauty Detroit, LLC.

Oh, how we love weddings…

Each bouquet we design is as unique as the bride who carries it!

I love finishing a bouquet with a special family item such as a handkerchief from Grandma.

It’s such a satisfying process to go from an initial consultation with a couple, getting a feel for their style, color scheme, etc. to ordering the freshest seasonal product and then bringing it all together with the creation of finished florals.

Jessica’s bouquet (5/21/16) of O’Hara garden roses, ranunculus, stock, dusty miller, astilbe and more.

Stacy's_bouquet

Stacy’s bouquet in white, beige and hints of gold. I had fun finding this vase to complete the look at the reception.

Maureen selected succulents and Juliet garden roses for her bouquet in a rustic, barn setting.

Another great perk to designing wedding florals~ visiting so many unique and beautiful venues! Each location dictates a different tone for the ceremony and reception decor.

Maureen and Alek were married May 21st at a rustic setting in Howell, MI.

Stacy and Michael were married May 20th at The Gandy Dancer, Ann Arbor, MI.

Preeta and Bradley were married May 21st and held their reception on the outdoor patio at The Gandy Dancer.

The Oxygen Producing Power of Plants!

Miscellaneous_plants

Well, it’s post Mother’s Day and the store felt a bit cleaned out (which is always a good sign:)) so I went on a plant shopping spree to renew the energy and “green up” the space.

Okay, Prom- We’re ready for you!

As I prepare the studio for Prom Season each year, I always try to stay aware of the current trends in clothing, shoes, etc. This helps me understand which direction to head with the floral accents. I’ve noticed that the traditional gowns are getting a modern twist with more color, pattern and even a new two piece option this year. Not only am I seeing these online but several girls have already been in the shop to share their dresses as they begin shopping for their corsages and boutonnieres and I’m seeing the same look. Super adorable.

It got me wondering what other options I could offer to wear as a floral accent for prom. Think…floral jewelry (rings, earrings and necklaces) along with the traditionally accepted floral bracelet aka wrist corsage.

And how about a flower enhanced bag or purse to carry to the dance?

botanical-purse-side-2-design-Floral-Verde-workshop-Francoise-Weeks-Feb-2014

We have so many unique bands and gorgeous wire products available- a corsage on the wrist can look more like a “floral bracelet.”

Wrapped Bracelet Pearl_corsages

And we can’t forget the guys! Here are a few of the new tux trends for 2016. Love the use of pattern, as well as the contrasting color on the lapels.

We typically design a boutonniere to coordinate with the color scheme that the date is wearing. Roses are the most often requested blooms but here are a few more unique offerings to consider, too.

Special Flower for Special Occasions

Blush_berries (1) Pink&white_corsage

Why give a corsage? It is an age old tradition that a small bouquet of flowers is presented to a date when going to a dance. At the start, these were either carried or pinned on to the bodice of a dress. As times changed, the idea of wearing the flowers on the wrist seemed more modern and almost like “floral jewelry.” Today, the floral trend has even moved as far as floral necklaces, rings and earrings thanks to Francoise Weeks‘ amazing work.🙂

botanical-ring-and-necklace-Francoise-Weeks

Over the past few years my favorite corsage has been the wrap bracelet. It fits almost any size wrist, stays in place nicely and comes in a variety of colors. I highly recommend this for high school age dance goers- seriously they are comfortable!

Wrap_corsage

Purple_white_corsage2

My favorite look for the younger dance goers, think, “Daddy Daughter Dance,” is a petite pearl bracelet band. These bracelets in the smaller size have made a world of difference in designing for tiny wrists. A bit of ribbon, a few small buds, filler and a bit of bling and these corsages are easy to wear and become a keepsake bracelet later.

Pearl_corsages

And…another great option for a younger girl is a petite bouquet or nosegay to carry rather than wear. These can be matched to their outfit and finished with ribbons.
