plum christmas flowers

Our Christmas colours for this year's festivities were plum and white. So, for our table arrangements, I used my favourite flowers: hydrangeas and ranunculus, and mixed them with a plum coloured leaf.

cotton flower arrangement

I can't take responsibility for the creativity of this arrangement, although I made it myself! I saw one that was almost exactly the same in the Hofland catalogue, and thought it would go perfectly in my Dad's newly renovated house. So I basically recreated. My dad didn't realize that's how cotton looked as a plant and was VERY excited when he saw how cool it is. I just love cotton!

baby shower flowers

For a baby shower designed with my fellow inBloom peeps, yellow button mums work! I love little yellow poofs of flowers.

a modern red and white flower arrangement

I was commissioned by Darlene Martin's Bijouxbead to make a nice big flower arrangement that matched her logo, for the opening reception of her line of gorgeous luxury beaded jewelery. She needed it to be red and white, fashionable, and last for 14 days! I decided to do a simple mass of James Storey orchids, placed in a start white modern vase. Do you think it matches the colours and style of the logo? I think so!

shayna's vintage circus wedding

The infamous vintage circus wedding photos as featured in the Winter 2009 issue of Wedluxe Magazine. It seems that our company, inBloom Event Design, always seems to get the vintage jobs, which we sure do love. For the centerpieces, we went for big, lush white dahlias, queen anne's lace and yellow craspedia for a pop of fun! Same thing for the bouquet. The bride wanted a quirky bouquet. And of course, a quirky bouttoneire for the groom: craspedia and dusty millar from the garden. For table styling: queen anne's lace and white snapdragons. This might have been my favourite project of all time. Yum! {Photos 1, 4 by Ikonica; Photos 2, 3, 5 by Craig Morrison (my beau!)}

white simple vintage flowers a la prohibition era

Sorry for the delay in posts! Needless to say, I have been busy with our event design company, inBloom Event Design. However, I'm catching up this New Years Day to show some of my favourite florals that I've done over the year. These are the only pics I have of some simple vintage flower arrangements I made for the Rethink Romp: Prohibition event, put on by Rethink Breast Cancer in Toronto. You can't see much, but I think you can get the idea - white anenomes, white spider mums in mason jars. Trying to conjure the feeling of the simple, vintage prohibition era!
