A Garden Baby Shower!

Something we love just as much as a pretty wedding, is an epic shower!

We got to work on the most beautiful garden inspired baby shower this past weekend and we couldn’t wait to show you all!

The hostess, of course, wanted loads of pink throughout the arrangements since the new baby would be a girl. We also drew yellow and a dusty blue from the invitation that blended together just beautifully. And the wild garden greenery was the icing on the cake, so to speak; and speaking of cake, check out those seriously adorable cookies that were in the entry alongside our arrangement!

Dahlia, Lisianthus, Dusty Miller Arrangement | Garden Baby Shower | the white dahlia

We had so many rooms to fill in the Ocean Ranch home in Dana Point, California including the backyard where some amazing banquet tables were set up.

We decided to do a cluster of vases on most of the tables (an easy way to disguise those ugly umbrella poles) and a few larger vases and ceramic pots around the other rooms in the house, continuing with the wildflower vibe.

We love the mix of pink dahlias with yellow and pink lisianthus, dusty miller (for that dusty blue) and whimsical veronica and larkspur.

Montage Beach Wedding

Happy June! We are so excited that Summer is right around the corner, how about you?

We started our June off with a gorgeous beachside wedding at the Montage Laguna Beach. This Hotel is top notch when it comes to elegance and treats its guests like royalty AND not to mention, the panoramic ocean views (its killer)!  Even if you don’t have the luxury to stay overnight at the hotel, its worth your while to at least wine and dine at one of the onsite bars and restaurants at least once!

Brides Bouquet | Montage Beach Wedding | the white dahlia

Our client requested a bouquet filled with red peonies and wanted something summery and chic.

We decided to mix the red peonies with complimentary pink peonies too, added white lisianthus, spider mums and filled the bouquet with accenting red spray roses. We then wrapped the stems in a satin black ribbon to match accents on the bride’s dress.
