7 Ways to Use Rose Petals during Your Wedding

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

Rose petals are the classical wedding compliment. They’re absolutely vibrant and beautiful—soft and so alive. The rose has always been the universal representation of love. Here are some creative ways to incorporate organic, eco-friendly rose petals into your wedding decorations. Here are seven creative ways to use rose petals in your wedding plans.

1.   Showering them down the aisle – Nothing looks more like a dreamy fairy tale than to have a rose petal-covered aisle. From the moment the bride walks down the aisle till the transition of parent to husband, rose petals cushion their steps. Nothing pictures a commitment of love more beautifully.

2.   Surrounding the stage area Arranging your rose petals around the stage area is a romantic way of exchanging vows. Use different colors from the assorted freeze dried selection to create a unique pattern that symbolizes the kind of love you two share.

3.   Sprinkling on tables and centerpieces – By adding some lavender rose petals to your table and sprinkling some around the base of your centerpieces, you can create a scene from a royal wedding. Rose petals look good on guest sign in tables too.

4.   Scattering on the couple after they say, I do – Get your photographer ready then have your guests have paper cups filled with pink and white rose petals. Create a beautiful shower of nature’s rose petals and enjoy the refreshing display.

5.   Smothering your wedding cake – Next to the bride, the wedding cake is the most visual part of the wedding. Peach rose petals cascading around it, creating a beautiful pattern will make your cake come alive.

6.   Sanctifying the props for photographs – Add some spice to your photographs by filling the ground with orange and yellow rose petals, creating a soft bed of curling petals, looking like fresh, fallen leaves.

7.   Sexualize the hotel room – There isn’t a better way to top of your day of love with the perfect decoration of red rose petals. Top it off with beautiful black magic roses in the center.

Create a more visual wedding with rose petals. Hopefully this gives you seven great ideas on how to use them in your wedding. Good luck with your wedding and planned event.

Finding the Right Tulips – Top 7 Favorites

Monday, August 25th, 2014

Still searching for the perfect wedding flowers? Have you considered going with Tulips? Traditionally, tulips were popular, particularly in most of Europe and Holland. During the 17th century people were going crazy for them, popularly known as the Tulipomania.

Tulips are very popular in the springtime, and the third most popular flower next to the rose and chrysanthemum. If you are considering tulips it is good to be reminded of their incredible variety of colors, heights, and shapes. You also may want to consider their fresh fragrance, cheering up any celebration or festive occasion.

As usual, I took some time to study the most popular kinds of tulips and I came up with my Top 7 list of favorite tulips for weddings. Please browse through these most popular choices and see if you can find the right tulips for you.

  1. White Tulips – White is a symbol of purity, humility. I chose this tulip first because it seems to convey the traditional image of any marriage. When this variety is displayed, there seems to be an aura of honor resounding from wall to wall, from floor to ceiling. Enjoy the rich spender of their white beauty.
  2. Red Tulips – Red is a universal symbol of love and romance. If you decide to go with red alone, or combine with the purity of white, nothing but love it what is felt from this variety. Whenever I picture a bride and groom holding hands at the altar, I picture red flowers in the background.
  3. Purple Tulips – Purple has always been a symbol of royalty. During biblical times, every king or someone of great wealth was adorned in purple. It was one of the most profitable colors of fabric sold in New Testament times.  As a wedding flower, I can imagine a royal princess surrounded by the love of her charming prince. You could even mix, red, white, and purple tulips.
  4. Pink Tulips – Pink is also a color of love, but it is a bit quieter and says, I will never forget you.” Pink, red, white, and purple blend naturally together, but pink says it without words. Besides red, pink is a universal color of love and will fill any wedding attendance with love.
  5. Yellow Tulips – Yellow is the color of sunshine. It’s associated with joy, happiness, intellect, and energy. This variety of tulip will bring to life any wedding. Tulips are a spring flower and seem to portray the marriage of a young couple in the springtime of their lives. Yellow and orange make a nice compliment to each other.
  6. Orange Tulips – Orange combines the happiness of yellow and the romance of red, displaying natural sunshine to all who partake of their beauty. Orange will make your wedding and reception feel warm, loved, and inviting.
  7. Assorted Tulips – Technically, assorted is not a color, but after studying the different colors of tulips, you may want to display some of each.

Tulips are rather affordable, around $1.50 a stem. If you want to go a little fancier, French Tulips are a bit more but have longer stems and larger heads. Flowers are an amazing gift from nature to represent the love you want to honor. Once again, I hope this list is helpful. Please look at our website and choose from over hundreds of varieties of flowers. Good luck on your wedding or next planned event!

 

My Top 7 List of Hydrangeas for any Wedding

Saturday, August 23rd, 2014

Weddings and Hydrangeas go together perfectly and can make any centerpiece, bouquet, and even cake toppers look amazing. Hydrangeas are extremely vigorous, providing blooms that offer varied and extravagant varieties throughout summer and into fall. Modern selections come in enticing shades of white, cream, pink, blue, and red, and in lace cap and oak leaf shapes as well as the familiar mop head. I love how these heads pop out and present themselves. I highly recommend hydrangeas for large wedding receptions. People will admire the full, richness of their presence. If you are considering them for your wedding, you may need help deciding which ones to use. To help make it easier for you I have come up with my lucky Top 7 List, once again. After comparing hundreds of hydrangeas I have narrowed down the most popular choices. I hope this list will help you make a better choice.

  1. Assorted Hydrangeas – These flowers complement each other and can coordinate several color themes for your wedding. One example might be to have several sections of color, for instance, the blue table, the red table, the purple table, etc. Why limit your favorite color. Perhaps this sounds more like an idea from a guy, but I really think it will work.
  2. Lime Green Jumbo Hydrangeas – I don’t know what it is about green flowers but the more I look at them, the more I enjoy them. The lime-green shade makes me feel like being in the outdoors. Personally, I think they would look great in an outdoor wedding.
  3. Lavender Elite Hydrangeas – Two things come to mind when I look this variety, the sky and the ocean. Again, if you have an outdoor wedding under a clear blue sky, these flowers inspire love and romance. Even if you are inside, they still create such a joyful mood. People will not forget how good they feel with this variety. They almost inspire more poetry.
  4. Berenjena Dark Purple Hydrangeas – This definitely look rich and bold. Perhaps the wedding couple is full of boldness; this will make their statement for them. Personally, they look classy and wealthy. Combine this variety with some white and you have a Hollywood reception. You can use this variety any way you choose, but with them, a night wedding will look sophisticated.
  5. Green Antique Hydrangeas – When I see this variety, I think of softness. These fresh cut flowers will adorn a beautiful, blushing bride, dressed in white or pink. This reminds me of an early spring wedding and fanciful for that kind of moment.
  6. White Wedding Hydrangeas – This is one of the most popular hydrangeas. The natural splendor of this variety makes it a classic. Whenever I imagine a bride walking down the aisle, this is the flower and variety I see. Straight from Ecuador or Colombia, it gives a woman a sense of virtue and honor with these in her display. This will definitely make it a keepsake.
  7. Natural Blue Hydrangeas – Lastly on my list of top 7 hydrangeas is this particular variety. You can order it from pale to intense blue tones. It reminds me of happiness. Decorating with this variety will make your wedding event relaxed and happy. If your bridesmaids are in blue, they will look like the greatest compliment to the bride adorned with these.

There really is no right or wrong way to pick hydrangeas for your wedding and event; however, I hope this list gives you some insight as to what people are buying and what people think when these flowers

7 Different Garden Roses that are sure to make a Beautiful Wedding

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

The summer wedding season is still upon us and there is plenty of time to plan a wedding. One the most important decisions is to decide what kind of flowers will work best for  your wedding. I would like to help you make this decision by giving you my personal list of Garden Roses, which are my favorite wedding flowers. You may ask why Garden Roses? First of all, they are in a league of their own when compared with average roses. They have become one of the largest choice because of their blooms for weddings thanks to their lush, ruffled petals that rest graciously in the center of a very neatly wound swirling pattern — they are very similar to peonies, only without the expensive price!

Although they are available year round, they are hitting their peak right now and are a true delight for a summertime wedding. I have been searching through hundreds of wedding flowers. After narrowing them down to garden flowers, I then began to come up with my top 7 list and believe I have chosen the most charming wedding flowers available right now:

  1.  White Ohara is my first choice. This flower is a creamy white, peony-like rose. It looks amazing whenever the bride is adorned in a creamy white dress. This one looks amazing and leave me breathless! Every time I go to a wedding and see this particular variety, I have to ask them where they got them. They come from Colombia and look alive and fresh.
  2.  Campanella Cream Like White Ohara,  have a soft, creamy-white appearance, but the layers look a bit fuller. Actually, White Ohara and Campanella Cream look wonderful together.
  3. Green Hanna made my list because green is one of my favorite colors. If you are a green-eyed bride, or you have an outdoor wedding with lots of greens, then this will be an excellent choice. These flowers are light green and have about 3-5 blooms per stem, giving plenty of green for your special occasion.
  4. David Austin Patience is very beautiful! I couldn’t have a top 7 list without including it. It is an English-looking cream garden rose with a classic button eye. What I enjoy about this particular cream variety is the way their centers stand out and make an excellent contrast with any wedding dress.
  5. Antique Carmel is my fifth selection due to its caramel, butterscotch color. This premium, fresh cut beauty is kind of gives a soft, antique feel to any wedding. The fragrance is also very alluring. I highly recommend this one.
  6. Salmanazzar Pink Peach Peony has a pink tone that reminds me of a lovely fairy-tail, where the prince takes his bride and lives happily ever after. You have to see this one to believe it. The huge head has a cabbage-like appearance sure to leave you breathless.
  7. Cream-Orange Brulee Last but not least, this variety has a orange tint that is very earth-tone. This eco-friendly stunner has a wavy pattern in its full head. This summer wedding flower is a definite statement maker.

No matter which flower you choose, if you are looking for a professional opinion, I would suggest these top 7 Garden Roses.  Whenever you feel it is time to begin selecting flowers, the good people at Whole Blossoms would love to help you create the perfect wedding.

The love I feel, so strongly today,
To put it in words, can be difficult to say,
Giving you roses, says all that is true,
About my love, I give them to you,
Within each petal, and rich, dark color,
Lets you know, for me there is no other,
The long green stem, holding full head,
Reminds me of the reason, with you I will wed,
Look deeply inside, know they’re from me,
Always guarding my heart, forever you’ll be…

Surrounding you with flowers, with every rose,

Our moments are pure, such power we feel,

Without your love, I never want to be,

For you have opened my eyes and made me see,

There is nothing as precious as having you near,

Forever I’ll hold your and cherish you dear,

When I close my eyes and memory does fade,

I always see your smile, and the moment we made…

It seems like the earth stands still every time she walks into a room. I have never seen a woman with such incredible beauty; her smile is like watching the sun peer through the clouds on a rainy, dreary day. Her smile melts my heart like sun beating down on the fresh snow of winter.

How a Display of Flowers can Change Your Life

Every minute, new hope does it employ,
I give you flowers, as a gift from the sun,
Each one to show you, only you are the one,
Enjoy this paradise of beauty all days,
