Blue & Purple Winter Wedding ~ Brittany’s Inspiration Board

Brittany writes: My wedding is in December. It’s going to be simple but elegant. My bridesmaid dresses are dark purple (grape from bridal gallery). I was thinking of having purple and blue but can’t find a whole lot of ideas. I originally was hoping to have calla lily’s but that’s not a must have.

Love the colors! I used a bouquet that I think is stunning and has a winter’y December feel. Made up with hydrangeas and anemones in various shades of blue and purple (this way you get all the tones) and green grey greenery. The soft green leaves makes for a winter perfect bouquet. I know there aren’t calla lilies in this example, but they go great with hydrangeas and we offer them in both purple and blue if you’d like to add them! You could even swap out the anemones for the callas.

Shakeena writes: Our wedding colors are sunset orange and cranberry. attached is the centerpiece we are trying to recreate. can you let me know which products would create this and how much is needed to buy. we need 12 to 13 centerpieces made. Also, i have attached an image of the bouquet I want for myself and bridal party.

There are approximately 15-20 bittersweet sprays in that centerpiece – so you would need about 200-250 sprays to create 12-13 centerpieces just like that. The bouquets are gorgeous! To create bouquets like the photo, you are looking at 24-30 roses per bouquet. Though you can always go smaller for the bridesmaids.

Peacock Quinceanera Party ~ Rachel’s Inspiration Board

Rachel writes: I am not having a wedding. It is a quinceanera for my daughter. The date is set for November 15, 2014. The theme is “Peacock”. colors are light blue, lime green, purple, royal blue, accent color is gold. The main flower is the Calla Lilly, but I am not sure what other flowers would go with the Calla since it is such an elegant flower, just by itself is gorgeous. I do have the peacock feathers to go with it. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Love these colors!  Although we picked a bouquet for your board – the arrangement can still be used for a centerpiece design, and all the items in it look great with calla lilies. You can either add callas to this mix, or swap out the roses. Add a gold vase and some purple table decor to tie in all the colors.

Rustic Lavender Wedding ~ Tamara’s Inspiration Board

Tamara writes: My colors are eggplant and wheat my girls are in eggplant and the guys will be in dark khaki suits. I will have an antique gold gown. We are decorating with burlap, lace, wine bottles, and blue mason jars. Very country, rustic, laid back. I was thinking lavender and babies breath, but I’m not sure what else to use. I like dusty millers and a softer palette, but not sure how it will go with the dark purple. Help!! :-)

Light blue, lavender, and eggplant with a mix of greenery and gold accents is actually quite a striking palette! Hopefully this board will show you that with them all together.

To recreate this beach bright bouquet, you can use the following:

Peach and Coral Roses

Calla Lilies (optional) – you can also substitute peach orchids if you’d like!

White Alstroemeria

Pink Gerbera Daisies

Dark Orange/Coral Protea

Bring in the dark teal color by wrapping the bouquet stems with teal ribbon and use Beach Accessories to tie in the tan and silver.

Happy planning,
