When you receive them don’t just throw them in a bucket and go on your marry way. I want to give you some tips on how to take care of Peonies. Peonies need to be hydrated as soon as you receive them. Unpack your flowers as soon as you receive them and cut one-half to one inch off the stem at an angle (under water if possible) with a sharp knife, NOT scissors. Quickly place the Peonies into buckets filled with warm, filtered (de-chlorinated) water. Add floral preservative to the water if available. Remove any wilted foliage that could fall into the water to avoid the growth of bacteria. If the flowers are not going to be displayed immediately, try to keep them in a cool place (no cooler than 40F) and replace water and floral preservative frequently to ensure freshness.

Make sure you follow step by step the care and handling of the Peonies and they will bloom and look stunning for your wedding.

Fresh flower gown 190x300 Wearable Arts of Stunning Fresh Flower Gowns

At Whole Blossoms, we always try to deliver happiness to our clients by giving them phenomenal and breathtaking wedding flowers. We want to be able to provide joy and we are very glad to hear back from our valued customers. Today, I want to share with you the story of an extraordinary customer who is responsible for creating this beautiful wearable art and who is interested in merging fashion design and sculpture to create wearable art pieces. Her name is Enzina Marrari and she incorporates painting, drawing, craft, fiber arts and sculpture into two and three dimensional forms, this provides a different avenue for Marrari to investigate the connections between process and outcome, person and object. She turned to Whole Blossoms to assist her with making this dream come true, because of the convenient way to order wedding flowers. The experience she had with her wholesale flowers was great, she enjoyed the premium quality and the excellent customer service experience.

Enzina Marrari is a performance and visual artist whose work addressees themes of the social, personal and political elements of the human experience, which results in a sense of exposure and investigation that is consistent throughout her work. Enzina was born in Chicago, IL in 1980 and received her MA in Studio and Mixed Media Arts from New York University and her BA in Sculpture from the University of Alaska Anchorage.  She is currently the Art Director for Middle Way Café and she also volunteers for International Gallery of Contemporary Art where she is a studio resident. Marrari was awarded a residency through Proyecto Ace Artist Residency Program in 2011. She has also received two Best In Show awards in the No Big Heads National Self Portrait Competition through the University of Alaska Anchorage. She placed Top 5 for three consecutive years in Anchorage’s Object Runway placing first in 2010, fifth in 2011 and in 2012 she placed third in People’s Choice.

Enzina Marrari was creating three wearable art garments for the 2013 Object Runway Wearable Arts competition in Anchorage, Alaska. “Object Runway” is an art event put on every year by the International Gallery of Contemporary Art. The idea is a spin-off of the popular show Project Runway, and invites artists, designers, crafters, and any/everyone, to create pieces of art that can be worn on a body and down a runway. To star her project, she decided to use bulk flowers in order to create the amazing look she was trying to achieve. Enzina used different varieties of wholesale flowers such as: Organic Ecuadorian Roses, Multicolor Snapdragons, Blue Delphiniums, Baby’s Breaths, Alaska Wildflowers and grasses as you can see in the pictures and also in the explanations below which consisted of “Beloved”, “Wildflower”, “Drift”.

“Beloved” is a ball gown made entirely of wholesale roses and accents of Baby’s Breath. This gown consisted of about 1,000 fresh red roses on a base structure of elastic cotton fabric, wire hoop skirts and layers of petticoats. The completed garment weighed about 75lbs. The construction of this gown was extremely difficult and took about 20 hours to complete. This gown was intended to reflect a blooming of the heart.

Wholesale Cherry Blossoms

Friday, January 10th, 2014

Fuji Japan   Cherry Blossoms and Mount 1024x768 Wholesale Cherry Blossoms

Whole Blossoms wants you to understand the meaning of the Cherry Blossoms. The Cherry Blossoms is also known as Sakura by the Japanese. A ritual started during the Nara Period of having a picnic underneath the Cherry Blossom tree. This ritual was only for the Imperial Court but it quickly moved on to the samurai society and eventually everyone was having a picnic underneath the Cherry Blossom trees. It is said that the Cherry Blossom is recognized for extreme beauty and quick death. Many people believed the Japanese warriors that died would reincarnate in the Cherry Blossoms. The Japanese 100 Yen con has a Cherry Blossom on one of its sides.

The Cherry Blossoms grows in many places around the world including Australia, Canada, Brazil, China, Germany, India, The Netherlands, South Korea, Turkey, United Kingdom, and the United States. These blossoms are salted and pickled so they can be used as tea in wedding ceremonies, but they cannot be drank in large amounts because the leaves has coumarin that is highly toxic.

Whole Blossoms understand that these Cherry Blossoms can be used in wedding decorations and floral arrangements. Fresh cut cherry blossom branches are prized for late Winter and Spring weddings. Use Cherry Blossom branches to create and embellish a number of setups including table centerpieces, flower girl baskets, boutonnieres, topiaries, and more. While Whole Blossoms ships branches to bloom in sync with your event, actual blooming can no longer be guaranteed given the fickle blossoming nature.

Whole Blossoms carries two basic Cherry Blossom branch products for your shopping convenience. This beautiful selection of fresh cut Cherry Blossoms Branches is available only from February to March, packed in 5-8 stems bunches, and come in medium lengths only.

When ordering wholesale Cherry Blossom branches, for Jan and Feb deliveries, it is recommended that delivery occurs 7 days before your wedding or event to permit adequate blooming. For Mar and later, a 4-5 day lead time before your wedding or event is suggested for proper blooming.

Samantha’s Wedding

Friday, January 10th, 2014

I just lived one of the most unforgettable moments in my life. I said “I do” and now we are headed for a life time together. My wedding dress was spectacular and long. I decided to order online wholesale flowers to decorate the wedding chapel and for all the flower arrangements including the car. I chose to by the Multicolor Rose Cascade Bridal Bouquet. It had Pink, White, Dark Pink & Bicolor Red Yellow Roses, Baby’s Breath and Greens. I ordered six Dark Pink Posy Rose Bridesmaids Bouquets. They were dreamy small rose bouquets and very neat and light to carry. My bridesmaid just looked stunning. My husband, his father, my father, and his groom’s men used Pink Mini Calla Boutonnieres. My mother, his mother, our grandmothers, and other special ladies in our life used beautiful fresh cut pink with purple cast wrist corsages.

Now my flower girls had baskets full of fresh rose petals to throw while walking in, but I was so happy to know that I could buy 18,000 fresh rose petals to be put as a walkway for me to enter the chapel. I also bought online 6 feet roses, to decorate the corners of the chapel. The head sizes range from 4.6cm to 6.2cm depending on the rose variety. Since I wanted to have roses all over the place I order more roses. The minister had Ilse spray rose beside him.  Each Ilse rose stem had 3-5 buds that opened to beautiful blossoms.

For the pew decorations I used David Austin’s Rosalind (Austew) Garden Rose. They are described as a light pink rose that boasts fully, packed petals that together form peony shaped buds. Characterized as English Roses, Rosalind Garden Roses carry a light fruity fragrance and delicate beauty. I also mixed these roses with the white roses and Fiddlehead Fern, which is also known as Fern Curls. They are beautiful exotic fillers that made a perfect addition to the floral arrangements.

I am so happy that I ordered online wholesale flowers. They arrived on time and with special instructions on how to take care of them.  Many people told me not to order online but I called Whole Blossoms to see if they could answer some questions I had and they took the time to answer every single question I had, so ordered the flowers online.  I was very happy about this. Well I wanted to share this wonderful experience that I had with my online flowers so you don’t feel scared to order online. My wedding turned out just fabulous.

Floral wedding package 3 Wedding Cakes With Wholesale Flowers

 

Wedding Cakes with Wholesale Flowers

I am here to provide you with ideas on how to make the wedding cake just as important as all the other wedding decorations and floral arrangements. The decoration of a wedding cake with flowers depends on the color that you are using for your wedding.

We will start with square cakes. A four layer wedding cake will look beautiful with wholesale Pink LA Hybrid Lilies. Lily Pink Flowers symbolize beauty, charm, happiness, fondness and friendship. In addition you can add wholesale Dyed Blue Bom Dendrobium orchids to the cake. They can hang on each layer of the cake. This exhilarating and exotic Dendrobium is purple and specially dyed with a hint of blue to create the exciting colors.

Square cakes can also have five layers. If the cake is all white you can choose from Loose Bombay Dendrobium blooms or Loose Dyed Bom Blue Dendrobium Petals. Dendrobium Orchid blooms has become some of the most desired decorative accents for weddings. Loose Dendrobium Orchid Blooms are exotic and have delicate texture and look. You can put the Dendrobium petals between tiers.

You will also be able to use wholesale roses in the decoration of your wedding cake. If you have a three layered round cake, you can place fresh cut roses between tiers and on the top. You can choose from a different variety at Whole Blossoms. You can choose from red, bicolor, white, cream, pink, medium pink, dark pink, lavender, purple, orange, yellow, green, peach and assorted roses. Whole Blossom’s roses have larger heads, and they are toxin-free flowers, as well as consistency in colors. These roses have significantly stronger stems and resistance to disease. The roses have increased brightness, especially in the red varieties, since there is no “darkening”. They are high resistance to harsh weather conditions, such as frost, greater endurance when packed and they are fresher flowers and have a longer vase life.

Fresh rose petals’ covering the base of the cake and in between the tiers looks amazing. Whole Blossoms sells wholesale Rose Petals direct from the farms for maximum freshness! They are available all year round. There are also freeze dried rose petals. Our wholesale freeze dried rose petals are biodegradable and eco-friendly. Because freeze dried rose petals are non-staining and non-slippery, some venues do recommend this type of petal for use at special events. Our bulk freeze dried rose petals come in many different colors and maintain a long shelf life that ranges from months to years depending on storage conditions. In addition to these unique rose petals, wholesale freeze dried hydrangea petals and peony petals are also available year round and all come with free shipping with your online order.

You can also have your wedding cake made in a heart shape. I would have two heart shaped cakes side by side.  Complement the cake surrounding it with beautiful wholesale sunflowers. Sunflowers are native to North and South America and symbolize loyalty, best wishes and pride. Whole Blossoms sunflowers are long lasting and come in beautiful and bright yellow with light or dark center.

Bulk flowers will add a touch of sophistication and elegance to your wedding cakes, but the advantage of this is that you can also order wholesale flowers for the bouquets, boutonnieres, bridesmaid, wedding decorations and all of your floral arrangements. Take your time to go to www.wholeblossoms.com and see all the great variety of wholesale flowers we have to offer for that special day.

The Sunflower name derives from its shape. It is also known for capturing the sun. Sunflowers are native to North and South America and symbolize loyalty, best wishes and pride. Sunflowers are beautiful to use in wedding decorations, flower arrangements, anniversaries, holiday, or any occasion. Sunflowers have different varieties; these varieties will brighten up your event and will complete your bridal bouquet.

I am going to start off with the Yellow Dark Center flower. It comes in three different sizes. You will need to make sure to choose the right size for your floral arrangements and bouquets! The medium has a center diameter of 1.6″ & the Petal to Petal diameter is 4.0″ On the other hand the Large has the Center Diameter of 2.0″ & the Petal to Petal Diameter is 4.4″. Now if you want your bridesmaid to carry only one sunflower you can order the extra-large that has a center diameter of 2.4″-3.1″ & the petal to petal diameter is 4.8″-5.5″.

The ever popular mini sunflower is used for parties and special events. Create a fun ambiance with a playful display of fresh cut small sized sunflowers. Add to flower arrangements or leave as stand-alone for a cheerful display of bright yellow.

If you want to use a chocolate color for your wedding decorations you can buy online wholesale Chocolate Sunflowers. These sunflowers are grown in California. They are about are 24-32 inches long and come with medium to large sized heads. If you are looking for a red color then you will want the red sunflower. This wholesale red sunflower variety is imported from Colombia and Ecuador and is naturally tinted to create the red tint that adorns its petals. Used as an excellent contrast with inspiring floral centerpieces, red sunflowers are also perfect flowers for the Fall and Halloween season. Weddings inspire sweetness and happiness. The Teddy Bear sunflower is a novelty sunflower that grows a thick, furry coat of stems. Soft, fluffy and bearing only a small center,

I will give some ideas to use sunflowers for centerpieces and other wedding decorations. For example you can use Yellow Sunflowers, Green Button Poms, White Daisy Poms & Tree fern to create and outstanding centerpiece to decorate all of your wedding tables. You can also make a bridal bouquet with sunflowers, red and white roses, Queen Anne’s lace and aspidistra. Sunflowers are great also on wedding cake decorations, flower girl hair decorations, car, and to decorate your ballroom with.

Spider mums, gerberas, Hypericum berry, White Bouvardia, and Freesia are some flower names and fillers that will just go fantastic with sunflowers. The white Anastasia spider mums are striking and playful Chrysanthemum flowers, they are larger in size than regular Fuji spider mums. Fresh cut Orange Gerbera Daisy flowers are a popular color to brighten any room through a flower centerpiece or as a striking display to a bride’s bouquet. With a positive and playful demeanor, orange gerberas are perfect for wedding centerpieces, bouquets, Halloween setups and other floral arrangements. Hypericum berries are a favorite filler for wedding flowers and events! Hypericum is a great choice if you want to add a finishing touch of beauty to your bridal bouquets and wedding centerpieces. Each hypericum stem measures between 18 to 26 inches.

Each stem bears between 10-20 off white berries with each berry ranging in size between 1 to 2 cm. White Bouvardia has a delicate fragrance and it comes with gorgeous star shaped blooms. This lovely and elegant flower is a perfect choice for weddings, special occasions or for any type of flower arrangements. The Freesia represents innocence, thoughtfulness, and trust. And there is no better way to communicate that with a fresh cut of assorted freesia flowers. Use freesia to brighten up any room environment or for other floral arrangements that demand an assorted color.

I have provided you with several names of sunflowers and in addition I have given you the names of some flowers that will make your wedding decorations, bridal bouquets and flower arrangements look just unbelievable. Enjoy the sunflowers and make the best out of your event.
