So, the boringness of homework has overwhelmed me and the web browser has been calling my name. Why not? Let’s check facebook, email, catch up on blogs. Oh my! A survey about wedding flowers, Horray. Apparently for my far off wedding my floral style is 80% Natural.
Fresh is best when it comes to flowers in your book. In the perfect world, you would gather all the blossoms for your bouquet from a friend’s garden, but your practical side knows that it is best to leave the arranging to your trusted floral designer. Natural style has a “just picked” look that can take on a prairie feel or an English garden sensation depending on the blossoms you choose. For a prairie-inspired bouquet, think grasses, black-eyed Susans, purple coneflowers, echinops, and various berries and seedpods. For a petal-rich spin on natural style, call on sunflowers, zinnias, cosmos, larkspurs, delphiniums, peonies, tulips, and herbs.
Your favorite centerpieces have a laid-back look. Found containers, such as galvanized buckets, wooden boxes, or a collection of old flowerpots, are perfect supports for your unstructured arrangements. A natural-style centerpiece might be a handful of peonies plunked in a blue canning jar adorned with a ribbon, or a collection of fresh-cut herbs in a moss-covered wire basket. Take inspiration from your reception site when designing natural-style centerpieces.
