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!

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.

Easter Flower Guide

It’s that time! Time to share our go-to holiday florals. This time, Easter.

Easter Flower Guide | the white dahlia

1. Tulips: We love colorful tulips for Easter; think yellow, pink, and purple.
2. Lilac: Lilac isn’t in season long, so when it is we like to use it as much as possible! It has a beautiful purple hue and a sweet fragrance that is amazing.
3. Daffodils: You really can’t fully enjoy spring without garnishing the house with this iconic spring flower.
4. Sweet Peas: Like lilac, sweet peas have a short season so we love using them when we can. They too have an intoxicating smell and beautiful vibrant color. We also love their wildflower look.

For pricing or to order Easter bunches and arrangements be sure to visit our website or email us for a quote!

Our New Column! Flower of The Month…

Flower of The Month: Daffodil | the white dahlia

We’ve decided to add a new monthly column that we are so excited about! We’ll now share with you our favorite flowers for the month, each month.

Flower of The Month: Daffodil | the white dahlia

We’ll start this off with a springtime classic, Daffodils!

Daffodils grow from a bulb and come in various color varieties from white to yellow and even deep orange.

Flower of The Month: Daffodil | the white dahlia

 Cut daffodils will last longer in room temperature shallow water and be sure to cut the stems at an angle for better water absorption. Cut flower food will help prolong the life of daffodils (we recommend using 1/4-1/2 a pack with each water change). Also, cutting the stems with each water change will help prolong the life of your daffodils.

We are so excited to enjoy these gorgeous spring flowers while they’re in season!
What is your favorite flower for April?

Supplies | The White Dahlia

The Supplies:

Frozen Candle
Kitchen Knife
Tea Towel (for grip)


Place finished candle in the freezer for 4-6 hours, until frozen, overnight is best.
Once frozen, use your tea towel to grip the candle and use the kitchen knife as leverage to “pop” the unused wax out of the candle container. (Make sure the wax and container are completely hard and frozen)
Wash and dry your container and Voila! You are ready you reuse your candle containers!

Will you be trying this super easy way to repurpose your candle containers? You can shop our collection online to get the exact looks shown above! Leave us a comment letting us know how it goes!
