Today I’m excited and proud to share my newest addition to the shop! I have been planning this bouquet and boutonniere set for several months, but had to wait until I was able to gather just the right materials. I finally did — allowing me to bring this much loved vision to life!
The journey began when I happened to find just the right creamy ivory dahlias. Although they are a popular choice, quality dahlias can be a little hard to come by. These were an exception — the delicate petals and variety of sizes lends a wonderfully natural quality to these silk flowers.The next pieces of the puzzle were the blue thistle and vanilla colored English garden roses. The saturated color of the navy thistle brought just the right depth of color while the densely petaled roses added softness and luxury. An addition of some always chic hydrangea brought fullness to the bouquet. Soft dusty miller leaves contributed another layer of color and lacy skimmia sprays heightened the texture. The finishing touch was the soft blue-grey delphinium that bonded this suite of blooms with remarkable ease. To contrast against this mixture of pastel colored flowers, I chose a natural tan burlap for the stem wrap.
This soft yet substantial, rustic yet refined arrangement would be ideal for a spring or summer wedding — or an event by the sea any time of the year.
And I think this is my favorite one yet.Introducing the “Lovely” Bouquet
