the wedding flowers in detail from the bridal expo

April 3, 2012

We were busy little bees over here at Living Fresh last week making bouquets and centrepieces for the Conestoga Country Club Bridal Expo on April 1st, 2012.

Our theme for the wedding flower booth was A Midsummer Night’s Dream. So are focus was to create floral pieces that had a natural, earthy, garden feel to them with a touch of romantic elegance.

Here are our wedding floral creations!

This white, green and brown hand-tied wedding bouquet was created with white Anemones, Coral Fern, Wax Flower, Scabiosa stellata pods, Casablanca Ammi visnaga and white Stock. Got to love the wild look the coral fern gives to this bouquet, texture at its best!

This table centrepiece was created to complement the above bouquet. It was designed in a milk glass compote vase with white Anemones, Coral Fern, Wax Flower, Scabiosa stellata pods, Casablanca Ammi visnaga green Pittosporum and white Hydrangea.

Stunning white O’Hara garden roses, Brunia albiflora and Coral Fern comprise this elegant yet natural posy bouquet. O’Hara garden roses are prefect for weddings!

Who does not love the simplicity and elegance of an all white hydrangea wedding bouquet? We added a little Coral fern for texture and interest.

We love texture, so this charming and mysterious hand-tied bouquet is a signature piece for us at Living Fresh.  The elements used to create this pretty are white Vandela roses, white Hydrangea, pink Helleborus, peach Hypericum berries, Brunia albiflora, seeded Eucalyptus and Podocarpus foliage.

We love the look of mixing soft pinks with peach and white for weddings this year! Deb from PurpleFreesia Designs created these beauties. For the bouquet she used Capriccio garden roses mixed with peach Carnations, soft pink Majolica spray roses, Brunia albiflora, peach Hypericum berries, white Wax Flower with Podocarpus and Pittosporum foliage. The matching centrepiece is a lovely mix of Capriccio garden roses, white Hydrangea, white Asters, white Helleborus, seeded Eucalyptus, Salal, Coral Fern and Pittosporum foliage in milk glass.

Be still my beating heart for I have fallen in love with the stunning David Austin garden rose, Phoebe. Rich and robust and delightful in fragrance, the pretty bloom is a show stopper! We mixed it with white Vandela roses, pink Helleborus, soft pink Majolica spray roses and Wax Flower. One could almost be fooled into thinking Phoebe rose is a Peony!

Since we loved Phoebe garden rose so much we had to make a centrepiece with her as well! We used all the same flowers in the bouquet above with a little salal leaves for structure. Feels like it is fresh out of the garden!
