Wedding Flowers

It's been a busy week. I, along with two wonderful helpers, put together wedding bouquets, arrangements, corsages, and boutonnieres with 175 white and red roses. The brides bouquet had white roses in the center.

Bridesmaids bouquets were lush with red roses.
The reception was centered around a nature theme. We put miniature roses and leather leaf on the tables.
Love this cake.
Oil lamps made of beautiful rocks carried on the nature theme.
Blessings,
Ele

Stunning!

Pink Feather Paradise said...

Wow, that is amazing...Growing up in a house full of flowers and eventually helping mum do the weddings (only the pew ends and tables though not the bouquets) I know exactly how much time she use to put into it... she's an old fashioned florist and wires each flower individually... I think a lot of the town florists over here use oasis and mum was always wary of the thought of flowers dropping out!

It all looks gorgeous what a wonderful start to their married lives... xxxx

Robyn said...

Thanks for stopping! Yes...you are so right it took me some time to get it down. I found this new liquid glue that is supposed to be like hot glue (without all the burns) I wish I had found that when I was doing this project. The project took me hours to go through 2 huge bags of flocked eggs and get the sizes I wanted and colors and so on. I look at them now and they are not perfect at all, but that is what gives them charater, right? Well, that's what I keep telling myself! LOL! I forgot to add that I used styofoam cone under and on top of the green flora foam to make shape. If that helps! And I did spray paint some tufts of my moss to a brighter green, a bit of work but I liked the look!
Thanks for stopping by!
