wedding flowers







Yesterday was a very busy day at work, I had to create wedding flowers for a customer. This was her second wedding, so it was a smaller event and wasn't really sure what she wanted. She showed me a piece of fabric she was going to wear for her wedding dress, a beautiful taupe color.


I picked out some neutral colors and added a touch of pink. I wrapped the stems in a satin taupe ribbon.




This is the matron of honors bouquet, similar to the brides, just a little smaller and with purple accents. She is wearing a deep eggplant color with taupe colored shoes. I sure they are going to look beautiful carrying these bouquets matching perfectly.


These are the boutonnieres and corsages; same color theme for each.





I also had to make this beast of a bow. A customer came in wanting a huge bow for a sweet 16 present... a car!! It took awhile to make, but hopefully it will make the statement!

I'm sure the bride was thrilled when she saw her flowers. They are SO beautiful! Great job.

Wow! I can't even imagine getting a car for a present. Pretty cool!

Hugs,
Joanne

Hi Emily :)
Thanks for the comment on my blog. Your blog is lovely. I am looking at your websites right now. Do you ship to Canada from both Etsy and your website? Could you let me know when you get a minute. Thanks,
