Flower Friday | King Protea

Posted on September 6th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Happy Friday!  This week’s featured flower is a unique one: The one and only King Protea!  If you are looking for something ‘one of a kind’ and tropical or exotic for your wedding, protea are a perfect choice.  King Protea are native to South Africa where they are, in fact, the National Flower.  With their large size, protea are a great option as a focal flower in a centerpiece.  They are just as gorgeous in mixed bouquets as they are in a single stem bouquet.  Additionally, it is an extremely long-lasting flower and also dries very well.  As a result, you can enjoy these beauties for quite a long time.  Enjoy the images below!

Flower Friday: Amaranthus

Posted on August 23rd, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Hi Friends!  The blog has been mia lately and I apologize.  We have been super busy this summer with some beautiful weddings & photo shoots.  Lots of things are happening around here with a new website and some more surprises I will blog about later.  But for now, the featured flower of the week….Amaranthus.

I love this flower.  I actually grew this flower before I ever used it in any floral designs.  My Dad almost refused to plant it for me because apparently in the agricultural world it is known as Pigweed and is just that, a weed, unwanted.  I convinced him to let me grow this ‘weed’ in a small little space in the garden and have been in love with it ever since!  It adds great texture to designs.  The thing I love most about it is how it hangs.  Not many flowers are as flowing and relaxed as this one so it compliments a tall arrangement very nicely.  I also think it would look stunning in a floral chandelier.  I might have to try that next :).  Enjoy a few photos of the Amaranthus below from some of our floral designs and have a great weekend!  The weather … Read More »

Flower Friday Peonies!

Posted on June 14th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Flower Friday has been MIA lately, but we are bringing it back this week with a Spring favorite…..PEONIES!  I could go on and on about how much I love these beauties.  Although they have a short window of availability they are one of our all time favorites here.  They are available in quite a few colors, most often you will find them in white and varying shades of pink.  If you are really lucky you will be able to find them in yellow!  We are growing a few yellow peonies for some upcoming projects next year.  Stay tuned for a blog post next week on that topic.  If you are lucky enough to be getting married when they are in season, we suggest you incorporate them in your wedding in the bouquets or centerpieces.  Enough talk, I will let the images speak for themselves!

 

 

More peony arrangements and bouquets coming to the blog soon from Saturday’s upcoming wedding!  Check back later for more gorgeousness!

Flower Friday | Hydrangea

Posted on March 22nd, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

Happy Flower Friday Everyone!  This weeks featured flower is the Hydrangea!  There are an incredible amount of varieties of this beauty.  They come in a range of colors including white, green, light ‘kiwi’ green, light & dark blue, light & bright pink, deep purple, and mixed varieties.  My absolute favorite varieties are the mixed or antique hydrangea varieties.  They are simply gorgeous.  One great thing about hydrangea is it’s size.  If you are looking for some larger floral arrangements for your wedding or ceremony, these are a good option because they cover a lot of space.  Besides looking stunning in floral design, they also make great landscape plants.  They produce stunning blooms to bring in throughout the summer.  You can even try your hand at dying the flowers in the fall.  Limelight is one of my favorite varieties for that as they turn a gorgeous pink color in the Fall!

 

Check out the pictures below of some of the fabulous varieties of Hydrangea.

Flower Friday | Sweet Pea

Posted on March 8th, by Life in Bloom in blog. No Comments

The delicate and fragrant Sweet Pea is this week’s featured flower.  The Sweet Pea is one of our favorite flowers for bouquets over here at Life in Bloom.  You really can’t beat it’s sweet scent.  Because of it’s delicate and fluffy texture, it is the perfect addition to any bridal bouquet.  They are also a great accent flower in centerpieces and they are available in an array of colors ranging from; white, light pink & champagne to hot pink, lilac purple, and a deep darker purple.  This past weekend, I had the pleasure of working on one of my fellow designer’s wedding.  She carried the most gorgeous bouquet made up of solely Sweet Pea.  I wish I had a picture because it was stunning.  Since I don’t, these images will just have to do..enjoy!  Florals from The Nouveau Romantics via The Nichols, ,Stone Blossom, Pinterest & Passion Flower via Style me Pretty.
