Arches & More

Brass Arch  –  Our Brass Arch is a flat arch, primarily used inside, because it needs a level surface to stand on.  We frequently will decorate it with flowers, as shown below, which are then removed when pictures are completed.  The flowers are then re-purposed into  a reception venue on a head table, cookie table or similar area.

Sometimes the arch is decorated with tulle and lights, which is perfect for a winter wedding!  The entire arch is often moved over to the reception area, and used behind the head table, or as a backdrop for photos during the reception.

 

Black Arch  —  Our Black Rod Iron arch is very sturdy, and can be used inside and outside.    A flower piece is made for the top  of the arch, which is removed after pictures, and transferred to the reception area.    We also have free-standing Shepherd’s hooks and lanterns, which can be used on an isle with flowers, mason jars with flowers, etc.

 

Hexagon Arch  The Hex Arch is our newest creation,   and one that is pretty outstanding!   This was the result of a picture presented to us by a Bride, who asked if we could do this.  We said Yes, and proceeded to make it happen.  The hardest part was making the pieces fit together in such a way that it could be transported in our trucks.

Again, flowers are added so  that they can be detached and re-purposed into the reception area.  This arch is sturdy and can be trimmed with fabric as well as flowers. Materials can be hung from the top on ribbons for a completely different type of look

Candle Screens –   We own folding wrought iron candle screens, that can be rented for wedding ceremonies.  Each candle screen contains approximately 50 battery operated votive candles enclosed in glass cups.  When these are all turned on, the flickering glow of the candlelight is awesome!!  We most frequently use all four screens, for the most impressive impact.

 

 

All of this equipment is owned by Parkway Florist, and is available to you, our customer, if we are providing flowers for your event.  Equipment is available on a first come – first served basis.   We also have a supply of columns, glass vases and risers that are not pictured here.  Please contact us if you have questions.

Lanterns! Our Newest Trend

There’s nothing like the sight of lanterns at a wedding. Pretty and whimsical, lanterns come in many styles, colors, and sizes. The romantic soft light of a candle glowing from within makes lanterns the perfect wedding decor item.

Our wedding this past Saturday took this idea and ran with it. Lanterns were used throughout the ceremony and reception providing a consistent theme.

White lanterns were used on the guest tables as centerpieces as well as on the head table. Topped with blush pink and ivory flowers, the soft elegant look really came together.

The wedding cake was decorated with many of the same flowers from the centerpieces for the perfect soft pink touch.

As with any trend, each person makes their own adaptations to fit their personal style and taste. Below are some of the many styles of lanterns that we have worked with just in the past few years alone. You’ll see that each has its own distinct look. This is a trend that we hope stays around for a while to come!
