May Weddings

Spring is such a fantastic time of year for flowers. There are so 
many unique and beautiful varieties of flowers available. 

Here are some pictures from a wedding I did last week. 


Bride's Bouquet: English garden roses, peonies, ranunculus, lisianthus, 
viburnum, parrot tulips and matthiola. Loose and lovely.  



Bridesmaid's bouquets: English garden roses, peonies, lisianthus, 
'Miss Piggy' roses, viburnum, ranunculus and matthiola.

And from a different wedding:


Bride's bouquet: Pink peonies and ranunculus, 'Sweet Akito' roses,
Echeveria, white parrot tulips, astilbe and viburnum.


All boxed up and ready to go. 


Boutonnieres

Bright Pink and Purple

Here are some photos from a wedding I did last September. Photographed by 
the amazing Melissa Kelsey.  http://www.melissakelseyphotography.com/

This bride wanted vibrant shades of pink and purple in her wedding.
Her bouquet and some of the other flowers offerred a softer counterpoint:


The bridal portrait bouquet:


She wanted the bridemaids' flowers to be bright and fun.
Roses, lisianthus, hypericum and a tiny bit of bupleurum.




The bridal portrait bouquet again:


The wedding day bouquet: Roses, 
lisianthus, bupleurum and hypericum. 


Up close: Roses, lisianthus and bouvardia.


On the outdoor fireplace:


Hydrangea, bells-of-Ireland, calla lilies,
dendrobium orchids and hanging amaranthus.


This beautiful cake needed no flowers of course, 
so the bride wanted flowers around it. 



These pomanders are big--
over 18 inches in diameter! 

 

I loved how they chose these big round lanterns to hang in the trees.
They mimic the fun shape and feel of the pomanders.

A large centerpiece in an 8" round: 
Roses, lisianthus, hypericum, bouvardia and lemon leaf. 




Goodnight...

New Year

Well, we were solidly booked from September to the end of December 2012. Wow! And in spite of all that work and all those flowers (well, probably because of all that work) I didn't blog much during that time. 

Now we are looking forward to a new year and new faces and business. It is engagement and wedding planning season. We would love to meet with you and talk about your 2013 wedding flowers. Please call Miriam at 801.652.8991. Best of luck to you in the new year!

October Events

Here's a picture from an event I'm doing this week for the Utah Historical Society.



Scabiosa seed pods, 'free spirit,' roses, 
maple and birch leaves, decorative 
grasses and lamb's ear.


Park City Bar Mitzvah

This Bar Mitzvah was held in the middle of September, so the hills were alive with the colors of fall. Park City event planner Pam Dion helped the client choose a great color pallete of a rusty orange and dusty purple. Notice the coordinating pintuck tablecloths? Here are some photos from the Saturday evening party at the Glen Wild Clubhouse. 



Cocktail Table Arrangements


Centerpieces


Roses, calla lilies, safflower,
decorative 
grasses, lamb's ear,
safari sunset and 
birch branches.
