Wedding reception centerpieces…

Three of our brides this week chose low centerpieces of roses and hydrangeas for their reception tables. Yet even using similar flowers, each wedding is a unique vision. When it comes to flower arrangements, a change in color can mean a major change in the final result!

Wedding reception centerpiece

Our first centerpiece features a stunning color palette of purple hydrangea, ivory roses and green hypericum in a 6″ bubble bowl. In order to keep the price within budget, these hydrangea are actually blue hydrangea tinted with purple floral dye. Blue hydrangea are less expensive than the natural purple ones, and we think the paint actually gives the flowers a richer depth of color.

This centerpiece also uses tinted flowers. Here green tinted hydrangea are combined with natural white hydrangea. Spray roses and babies’ breath complete the arrangement, all in a 5″ glass cube.

Our third centerpiece also uses hydrangea and roses. Pure white hydrangea are paired with vibrant Cherry Brandy roses and Stargazer lilies. All are arranged in a 6″ bubble bowl.

Beautiful!

Weddings, conventions and graduations…

The weekend after Mother’s Day proved even busier for us than the weekend before! May is the start of the wedding season in Pittsburgh, and this week we designed wedding flowers for three different bridal parties. We also provided green and blooming plants for various graduations, and for the International Quilt Market, which was held at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.
