Valentine’s Day flower delivery in Pittsburgh

Valentine's Day flower delivery

In case you missed it, on February 14 the Pittsburgh Post Gazette published an article describing the challenging logistics of delivering flowers to downtown office buildings for Valentine’s Day. Students from Point Park University helped us to “spread the love” by delivering our Valentine’s Day floral arrangements and gifts to recipients in downtown Pittsburgh.

It was all part of a fundraiser that benefited student programs, and helped the Blumengarten and other local Pittsburgh florists get their Valentine flowers delivered.

Two October weddings

Our wedding season is winding down! This weekend we have only two weddings on our calendar, with two entirely different looks.

Our Friday wedding features a bride’s bouquet that is lush and organic. It contains red and ivory roses, blush spray roses, blush astilbe, pink ranunculus, burgundy hypericum and seeded eucalyptus.

BW-184 Bride's Bouquet

Saturday’s wedding features a bride’s bouquet that is sophisticated and elegant. It contains ivory roses and white hydrangea, and is accented with metallic silver and gold foliage and curly ting.

Two entirely different looks, but both beautiful!

Just peachy!

Right now in Pennsylvania the peaches are in season. This wedding palette of peach colored blooms is a stunning choice for late July.

The bride’s hand-tied bouquet included peach Juliet garden roses, peach dahlias, pink carnations, white ranunculus, peach hypericum, pink carnations and silver dollar eucalyptus. The bride wanted to incorporate white anemones into the bouquet, so we used silk flowers for the best show and value.

Centerpieces for the reception followed the same color theme with white and light peach hydrangea, peach spray roses, peach hypericum, pink carnations and silver dollar eucalyptus.

A lush, organic wedding bouquet

Our bride last weekend wanted a bouquet that was lush, organic and very romantic. This exquisite bouquet captured the feeling exactly!

Mark and Dana’s wedding reception at the Aviary

It was a Ludwig family wedding reception at the National Aviary on June 30! Dana and Mark chose flowers in a subtle color pallete of blush, white and ivory. The flowers were offset with containers, votive candles and chargers finished in metallic silver and rose gold.
White hydrangea, white roses and white majolika spray roses filled out the centerpieces for the round tables.

The long tables featured oblong centerpieces with the same flowers.

The long tables also had table runners of greens and baby’s breath.
