The Modern Cascade Bouquet

For many years the bridal bouquets has been made in many different styles such as the classic hand tied bouquet, cascade bouquet, sheaf bouquet and the pomander.

As fashion trends are constantly changing, so are wedding trends; and bridal bouquets have changed a lot as mentioned in my ‘fresh or faux blog post’. Not only are many brides opting for an everlasting hand tied bouquet, cascade bouquets have changed and becoming a popular choice for brides this coming year.

Below I have created a new everlasting cascade bouquet with trails of pearls and beads, a big trend for this years wedding and looks elegant with the flowing pearls and beads as well as the main floral bouquet too. Another way for those brides who like to different and unique.

Ideas for your Sweet Valentine…

February 14th… a day of love, chocolates, flowers and maybe for some….disappointment.

Bollywood has got some of the blame for this disappointment, as we expect to have a song and dance about every joyous, happy and loving moment, changing sarees as many times as possible, running through fields, declaring our everlasting love for each other, whisked away to exotic locations, dancing in the rain and a finale of a happy ever after! But we can all still dream of this Bollywood fantasy to happen…one day.

But enough of this disappointment, doom and gloom, it is a day of telling your crush to be your valentine, sharing love with your loved one or whoever it may be, and a great day to treat yourself to chocolates, wine, listening to classic romantic melodies and watching chick flicks!

As there’s not long left to go till Valentine’s Day, here are some last minute Valentine floral ideas for you or your loved ones and those who are the DIY romantics.

Well you can always start off with a dozen or more roses, will put a smile on anyones face!

If you’re on a tight budget, you can always give a single red rose wrapped in organza and even use it for table deco for that romantic meal for two.

If you have got a left over cocktail glass lying around in your cupboards, use it up as a table centre piece, with either carnations, roses or any other flowers that are red of course.

This rose fish bowl is for the modern romantics! So simple to make, by tying up a small bunch of roses, placed into bowl, spray the bear grass gold and placed on to mirror and its done!

Want your loved one to walk to an amazing display of roses, this has got to be it. A tall vase with dozens of roses, will blow anyone away with this romantic gesture.

And now for the ultimate finale for Valentine’s, or maybe for another special romantic day……

A heart box filled with roses and the… RING!

I hope these have given you many ideas and no matter who you are spending the day with, hope everyone will have a great Valentine’s Day!

A Taste of the Exotic…

To take away our mind off the typical cold British winter, I think its time to brighten up our day with some bright and colourful blooms. The exotic flowers are a great trend for Summer weddings that give the instant ‘wow’ factor with the bright and bold colours.

Mixing things up are a great way of being different, creating focal points with the variety of flowers and colours, and to create a great stylish and modern impact finish off with mirrored vases or plates.

The exotic are a must for those who loves to have a bold and colourful statement, it will always look contemporary and stylish, whichever exotic flowers you choose, but do choose these flowers when they are in season, but do be cautious not to go over the top or clash with your dress, as tropical bouquet next to a detailed or colourful dress will look too overpowering.

Here are some great bold and colourful ideas for that Summer wedding!
