Remember when baby’s breath was only accompanied by a single red rose? It just doesn’t do this beautiful, whispy flower justice! I’ve been coming across beautiful arrangements of baby’s breath recently and it’s been inspiring me to want to do my own projects. Maybe these might be inspiration for your wedding?
Over the weekend I popped over to the Brooklyn Winery to check out their wedding setup and came upon some majorly beautiful flowers & huppah by BB vendor Graceful Gardens. I was absolutely fascinated by the leaves used to decorate the huppah, and discovered they are cecropia leaves from Hawaii…they’re absolutely stunning, dont you think?

Hello! Here we are with a super happy February table design for you. Just in time for that big love explosion of a holiday…Valentine’s day. You have heard of it, yes? Hee hee. Well, I wanted to celebrate it in a bright and fun way. It’s easy when – if you are like me, adore pink and red. The shot of blue was inspired by Em & Bee‘s totally cute paper goods. Please check them out for adorable modern invites and stationary. I also wanted a print to bring some extra interest to the table. I’ve always loved Lotta Jansdotter‘s fabric and have been holding on to some samples…waiting for the right design. This cheerful wavy pink number fit the bill. Perfect! Enjoy – Denise

When I got married about a year and a half ago I dreamed up a reception overflowing with oversized flowers. Together with my mom, we filled the garden reception site with huge paper flower centerpieces, bouquets, and flourishes. To this day, I smile when I think of how it turned out. Ever since then I’ve seen oversized flowers blooming everywhere (pun intended). And now that it’s time to start planning those spring weddings, I thought it’d be nice to show some of the ways that oversized flowers can be added to any wedding.

These are the oversized paper flowers that lined the entrance of my wedding reception site. You could use these as centerpieces or decoration for an empty space for your site. Photo from Ali DeGraff – Brittany
