We were excited when asked again by Bridal Guide Magazine to create a winter bouquet for their January/February edition. We decided to embrace the winter blues and create a bouquet of deep purples with touches of blue that created an unexpected winter bouquet.
The bouquet consisted of purple hydrangea, Japanese blue delphinium, purple lisianthus and blue gentiana. The combination of flowers gave the bouquet a very lush and textured look without it being too over powering. The colors speak for themselves and made for a beautiful winter clutch.
A fall wedding this pass September offered a great venue and a wonderful couple to work with. We were so excited to work with Alexis and Richard on their wedding at the Bowery Hotel. The Bowery Hotel is a beautiful venue that lends itself nicely from rustic to contemporary flowers and decor. Our happy couple wanted a romantic and beautiful look for their special day and together we created a unique look just for them.
The bride wore an ivory lace dress and carried a hand tied bouquet of purple hydrangeas, purple and white lisianthus and white roses. We also added a touch of lavender to blend the colors and add a soft scent to the bouquet. The lisianthus lent themselves to a more organic and wild shape giving the bouquet a romantic garden look.
The escort table at the venue was gorgeous and we only wanted to enhance the look of it. We used a vintage looking urn and filled it with white garden roses and hydrangea to create a simple but impactful look.
The happy couple were married under a birch chuppah that was accented with touches of flowers. We used white and green hydrangea, white dalhias, white lisianthus and white roses to soften the birch.
After the ceremony the guests enjoyed a relaxing reception with access to the beautiful garden patio. The tables were set in mercury glass compotes and filled with white and green hydrangea, white dahlias, lavender lisianthus and roses. Since they used long family style tables we mixed in petite arrangements in hobnail mercury glass vases full of lisianthus and fresh lavender. To set the mood we placed white taper candles in crystal candle sticks down the length of the table.
A beautiful wedding that we enjoyed working on and hope you enjoy the pictures!
This autumn has been a busy season for us at In Bloom and we are excited to share some photos from another beautiful event earlier this month. The Dia Art Foundation held their fall gala hosted my Giorgio Armani at a fantastic venue, Tribeca 360. Dia is currently launching a new space to showcase exhibitions and feature readings by world-renowned poets. They came to us to with a very Armani look and asked us to help pull the space together. The space itself features windows that wrap around the entire room to showoff the incredible views. The tables consisted of two white cubes topped with plexiglass; clean, simple and modern. Everything in the space had a very specific look, from the square plates to the podium that was actually clear lucite to the flowers arranged in long rectangular vases. The look was modern and very well put together. The simplicity of it all allowed the eyes to catch the skyline peering from the windows and beautiful views of the Hudson.
We kept the centerpieces simple with just two long arrangements featuring steel grass and a single phalaenopsis orchid stem. The steel grass provided support and a contrasting color to show off the beautiful orchid and allowed for a simple and clean look. We also placed square votives on the table in keeping with the square/rectangular look of the event.
To dress the bars we created arrangements that tied in with the centerpieces featuring extra long stems of orchids, steel grass and different types of greenery. The tall vases bring the eyes up and allows the orchids to naturally hang.
There was also several 'pop-up' ponds around the room which we floated monstera leaves and anthurium in. Water is a great and unexpected element to bring into a space and ties in nicely with the grand views of the Hudson just outside the windows.
The deep set windows allowed a great place to bring in some warm lighting with floating candles and attract the guests to the windows to enjoy the views.
As the sun set the room was coming together and look was almost complete. The warm rays of sun set the mood for some great snapshots of the almost finished product. The flowers were soaking up the beautiful sunlight and the floating candles were glowing before we even had a chance to light them.
The simplicity of this space spoke volumes and everything came together perfectly with all the last minute details. Such a great organization doing so much for the community and bringing attention to some fantastic artist, glad we could be part of it.
