Wax Flowers!

Wax flowers come in many different colors and make a great accent in arrangements. They also are so dainty and fun for a little flower girl to wear in her hair as she tosses them down the aisle instead of the traditional rose petals. Wax flowers do not curl up and turn brown like rose petals do on the ground. They are very "hearty" and hold up for hours even out of water. They also look really cute sprinkled on tabletops or bundled up as a little flower girl bouquet.

So, for a different and fun accent give wax flowers a try.

More Wedding Details...

This wedding outside under a pink and white tent featured approximately 30 simple white hydrangeas carefully placed on a bed of simple greens in a square vase.
Also, 6 tall centerpieces featuring curly willow and hydrangeas, snuggled in a bed of greens placed a top white orchids submerged in water really created height and drama under the tent.

May Wedding

Here is just a sampling of the wedding party.....bridesmaids white and green bouquets really popped against their hot pink dresses. The lily in their hair really pulled it all together!

This beautiful bride carried a bouquet of callas, freesia, with a simple collar of greens.
The perfect bouquet for timeless elegance.

This arrangement (approximately 24 feet long) doubled as an altar arrangement for the church ceremony and as the head table arrangement for the reception. It created the perfect "wow" factor for this little country church wedding.

This bird is made completely made out of moss, greens, flowers, and other natural elements. I just love flowers as art!

This arrangement was so fun and bright. Sadly, I am not a photographer and only had just a minute to snap a photo before it went out the door for delivery. Hot pink peonies, purple irises, lime green kangaroo paw, greens, magnolia seed pods, and a little butterfly were the stars of this arrangement.
