Does your heart beat for red?  This color represents vibrancy, passion, love, and strength. While we all know the traditional red rose, there are so many flowers that grow in so many shades of red!

Is orange your favorite color?  This color represents harmony, aspiration, optimism, creativity, happiness, and joy.  Orange flowers have very high visibility, which is perfect for catching attention and highlighting the most important elements of a floral arrangement.  Not to mention – it’ll brighten your day!

Does yellow make you smile?  Yellow is the color of sunshine, and its color produces a warming effect.  Use yellow in your arrangements to send cheerful, pleasant sentiments.  It’s a classic choice for spring arrangements and a sure bet to cheer up a friend or loved one!

Does the color green soothe your soul?  One of the most important elements of a floral arrangement is the base of greens such as salal, variegated pittosporum, or Italian ruscus – but there are also many green flowers!  Green represents harmony, growth, balance, relaxation, and is associated with healing.  Including green flowers in your bouquet adds an element of freshness and harmony that we love!

Blue is the color of the sea and the sky.  It is often associated with depth, stability, loyalty, trust, intelligence, truth, and faith.  Its calming effect makes it a perfect choice for sympathy and get well arrangements.

Do you adore the color purple?  Purple combines the tranquility of blue with the passion of red.  The color of royals, this color symbolizes luxury, ambition, independence, and extravagance.  So many flowers grow in beautiful shades of purple, which makes it a versatile color for arrangements.

Are you tickled pink by the color pink?  This color represents youthfulness, romance, compassion, nurturing, love, and friendship.  Pink flowers beautifully contrast with blue or green blooms, and complement lighter shades of yellow and orange.

White means more than just tradition.  A color of innocence, reflection, inspiration, purity, and transition, white is an ideal choice for the special occasions in your life.

When we combine colors in our creativity, we’re doing more than just making a pretty arrangement – we’re creating a deeper meaning.  What statement can we help you make today?

Intimate & Elegant Wedding in Oakland

Last Saturday we adventured to Oakland with a truck full of flowers and smiles on our faces for a wedding ceremony that took place at Heinz Memorial Chapel on the University of Pittsburgh’s campus. The reception that followed took place at the Carnegie Café which is a part of The Carnegie Museum of Art and Natural History.

At the ceremony, the bride carried a cascading bouquet of white lilies, ivory roses, and white larkspur. Her bridesmaid carried ivory and blush roses with light pink wax flower and fresh cinnamon basil as accents. The adorable flower girl carried a clutch of three blush roses and light pink wax flower to match the bridesmaid.

We supplied two arrangements with seasonal flowers to decorate the Heinz Memorial Chapel altar. These stood out nicely against the rich wood tones in the chapel.

At the Carnegie Café we decorated the guest tables with a tablescape design which included satin pewter grey table runners, several collections of vases with floating candles for ambiance, blush and ivory centerpiece arrangements, sprinkled blush rose petals, and disbursed votive candles.

The centerpiece arrangements were lush and lavish. Designed in mercury glass pedestal bowls, they included white hydrangeas, blush roses, locally grown dahlias, fuchsia feather celosia, and coleus.

The sweetheart head table was decorated with a long and low centerpiece with coordinating flowers as well as the bride’s bouquet when she arrived at her reception.

Light Up The Night

A warm glow flickered throughout the evening at one of our favorite venues this past Saturday. Soft and elegant wreathes surrounded gray brushed metal lanterns to create a cozy and welcoming ambiance on half of the tables. The other half enjoyed a clear glass cylinder vase full of soft peach roses for a classy and complimentary look.

The bride and groom were married at local St. Malachy Church where the bride carried an array of several colors of roses. Her bridesmaids carried pink roses accented with sprigs of tiny waxflower and eucalyptus seeds.

Another happy bride that we were honored to work with!

3 Weddings and a ???

Saturday morning dawned and it was clear that any outdoor ceremonies were going to need to go to “Plan B” today.  The weather, it seemed, had a mind of its own.

Our day started with an 11 a.m. ceremony at Duquesne University Chapel.  Susan was a very  Traditional Bride, carrying a free-form cascade.

Our second wedding at St. Paul’s Cathedral was all shades of peach, coral, and green.  Short, kicky dresses were the order of the day.

Our Bethel Park wedding was moved outside to inside.  Fun clutches of gerber daisies for the Bridesmaids, roses added for the bride, and our locally grown farm fresh bouquets gracing the reception tables.
