white casual and loose centerpieces

For an upcoming magazine article, my fellow 'Bloomer Joelle and I created these casual, loose white centrepieces this weekend. We used different rustic vessels that emulated a simple garden style, in different sizes and textures, and filled them with blooming cherry blossom branches, white ranunculous, white peonies, white orchids, white chrysanthemums and white carnations. There's nothing more beautiful than a simple cluster of monochromatic white blooms!

nautical bouquet

And here is the nautical bouquet for (see below for more of a description of the project!) - I used white tulips, a white and navy ribbon and red starfish for a simple, modern take on the nautical theme.

nautical wedding centerpieces asked our event design company inBloom Event Design to style some beach or nautical inspired centerpieces and bouquets for their online magazine. So, with the help of my partner, Joelle, I created two types of centerpieces. Both in a tin pail, which reminded me of a child's pail at a beach - but one going for a more modern nautical look with a striped ribbon, and the other with a lacy navy ribbon to channel an antique nautical style. The flowers used are peonies, ranunculus, white anasastias and white garden roses. It smelled divine!
