Friday Flowers: Vale of Enna

My friend Grace, the amazingly talented florist behind Vale of Enna Flowers, provided a floral centerpiece for last night’s Thursday Therapy event at one of the newest wedding venues in Chicago, Greenhouse Lofts.

Lucky me, I got to take this massive arrangement home with me… and it was so gorgeous I had to share!

Glorious fuchsia peonies, blue-purple hydrangea, thistle (the prickly looking ones) , ranunculous, anemones (white with black centers), hanging amaranthus (the pink “dripping” ones), set atop a cluster of birch branches that she sawed herself :)  I am so in love with this color scheme!

So amazing, right??! Thanks, Grace!

Meet the Flowers: Lisianthus

When a bride loves a soft, feminine, ruffle-y, romantic look, I’m always quick to suggest lisianthus! Not only do I love the actual bloom, but I also love the wispy, pale green buds that add texture to any arrangement. Lisianthus comes in even more colors than shown below, including indigo purple, pale green, and more!

It is a gorgeous soft addition to romantic bouquets and centerpieces.

Meet the Flowers: Green Trick

Where the HECK did July go?! Ack!

I was recently introduced to this fun, fluffy, bright green poof ball and immediately fell in luuurve. There is something so vibrant and modern about green trick and is the perfect accent to any floral arrangement.



The other week I was so thrilled to receive a surprise delivery from one of my favorite floral companies, The Flower Firm… and the gorgeous arrangement they sent me included none other than some aforementioned, green trick! See how fabulous it looks when incorporated with other flowers, namely hydrangea, cymbidium orchids, calla lilies, white roses and blue thistle.
