We have a lot of bridals scheduled in the next few weeks for our fall clients. I'm getting so excited for the rich colors and textures that come with fall weddings! This bouquet today included 'Black Magic' roses, 'Circus' roses, mango mini callas and chocolate cosmos. I am a huge fan of the chocolate cosmos---they are a deep burgundy/brown color and the actually smell like chocolate!

This bouquet is by far the most requested item out of our entire portfolio! I have duplicated it exactly a few times, but most often brides want to change a few things to make it unique to them. In any case, this one definitely wins the popularity contest!
Gerbera daisies are as popular as ever this year! We have been doing tons of weddings with pink gerbs this summer and we have a few upcoming fall weddings with shades of orange and red. No matter the color, they are always fresh and fun!
I loved Ashlee's cute black, white and pink cake!

I'm so excited about the launch of our new site! We are still loading more pictures and working out a few bugs, but the new petalsandblooms.com is a major improvement. Check this blog often to see our latest work, new ideas and thoughts about wedding flowers...

Heather and Ben's wedding was so unique and so blue! They chose black and blue as their colors. We used shades of blue hydrangea in the bouquets, centerpieces and cake. The boutonnieres and corsages were made with blue tweedia. My favorite part? It's a tie between the hanging hydrangea pomanders that were placed above the cake table and the ribbon/picture gallery we set up behind the wishes table...
If you've been reading bridal magazines for the last year or so, then you know that brown is being hailed as "the new black" by just about everyone in the business. I too am a big fan of color combinations with brown--and last week we got a do a wedding that was chocolate brown and baby blue! This obviously poses a few problems for flowers, since there are relatively few choices for brown or bably blue flowers. So, we used 'Hot Chocolate' mini calla lilies for the bridal bouquet--they're more of a deep plum brown, but gorgeous nonetheless! For the bridesmaids we used white mini callas and white freesia wrapped in baby blue ribbon cuffs. And for the corsages and boutonnieres, we used white mini callas and freesia with brown ribbon-wrapped stems.
