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!

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!

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?

Valentines Day Gift Ideas

For some, Valentines Day is stressful; Which flowers should I  buy? Is it too soon for roses? They cost how much ?!!

We at, The White Dahlia would really like to make this holiday less scary and stressful so we can all focus on the true meaning of Valentines Day. Love. Love. and MORE Love! Now, if you don’t have a significant other that doesn’t mean you can’t partake in a little L-O-V-E either; give gifts to family, friends or even take a chance and show that other single cutie what you’ve got to offer (you never know!). Our website has some great options BIG and SMALL!

Red Roses | the white dahliaRed Roses are a classic; but don’t feel you HAVE to get these for your lady – especially if your relationship is new and you’re not sure about sending the wrong message. Get the roses for your wife and that girl you just can’t live without. Know her favorite flower? BONUS if you add it to the rose bouquet!

True Love Tulip & Rose | the white dahia
Simply Calla | the white dahlia You can also get a mixed arrangement like the first image above that has roses in it, but isn’t overpowered with them. Get her flowers that will last a while, like tulips or ranunculus and also be sure to add some fragrance. Or scale it down even more by getting just a small simple bunch of flowers or arrangement, like the one right above, for a new relationship or as an add-on to your additional gifts!

Silver Tin | the white dahlia

Candles make a great gift also! Try our Fragrance of The Month: Black Gardenia, for an intoxicating floral fragrance that anyone is sure to love.

Stoneware Frame | the white dahlia Do you have a favorite picture of you and your sweetheart? Pop it in one of our Stoneware Frames and you’ve got yourself an adorable, thoughtful and easy Valentines Day gift! (and for under $30)

We hope this guide helps make your Valentines Day a little less stressful, now go out there and show your honey some LOVE ❤
