Peaches and Cream

There I was in the grocery store, and there they were, lovely, luscious peaches. I had just spent the morning trying to help a bridesmaid pin and tuck herself into her dress. Technically, I was delivering the bridal flowers to the bride, but ever the helpful floral designer I was asked to help in this tricky endeavor. The bridesmaid had recently become pregnant, and well, things weren't fitting like they were supposed to....which got us to complaining about the bigger questions in life. Like why do sundress designers design with spaghetti straps, and these tiny little triangle bodices? Who could possibly fit into these things?

Later, I posted this very same question on


This is where parallels were drawn and comparisons to fruit ensued. I take absolutely no responsibility for this occurrence. I will just say that someone mentioned peaches ....which brings me back to the peaches at the grocery store...

I was thinking peaches as a summer wedding theme would be so lovely. If you added touches of cream, lace, rustic wood tables....wouldn't it be be divine? Of course, you would NEVER put your girls in bridesmaids dresses with spaghetti straps ,or tiny little triangle bodices because that is just cruelty to peaches and will cause a riot.

Trend Spotting: Succulents


I was in the garden center on the weekend and saw such beautiful succulents there. I love them in arrangements; they give such a nice textural element, as well as lend a slightly rustic air to an event. I have noticed them cropping up more and more in bridal bouquets, centerpieces and as wedding favours. What do you think? Do you like them? Would you like them if they were in a bouquet or floral arrangement?

The Colour of Your Eyes

Antique Lace

I'm still longing for Spring. This is a sweet colour palette for a spring or summer affair. I love the muted tones with the pop of lime. I love how you could use this colour theme in an elegant affair; but look how lovely it is rustic. Perfect for an outdoor or backyard wedding. I love how the blue could be the colour of someone's eyes....
