modern floral design inspiration

Although the designs by Raf Simons were the reason for the show, of course, and they were glorious and ladylike, I can’t stop staring at the flowers designed by Mark Colle, an Anthwerp-based florist, for the Fall 2012 Jil Sander collection. Encased in lucite boxes, Colle’s arrangements feel like modern day Dutch still lifes. Couldn’t you imagine these on display at a museum wedding?

that’s a wrap

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

I’m obsessed with the way bouquets are wrapped almost as much as the flowers in the bouquet. Presentation and detail are the thing — a unique ribbon tied in an original way makes the bouquet.

…by Amy Merrick, of Design*Sponge, An Apple a Day and Amy Merrick Flowers and Styling. The story of the design of Amy’s site that just launched this week is fascinating. I’m as much in love with Dutch still life paintings as she is. Love her inspiration and the way it came to life.

farmers’ market inspired floral crates

Friday, April 8th, 2011

We can’t wait for the farmers’ market to reopen. Fresh vegetables, yummy baked goods, beautiful, locally grown flowers…does it get any better? I love these farmers’ market inspired crates of flowers. Beautiful for a summertime wedding.

garland runner

Whether they’re made of bay leaf, laurel or magnolia leaves and whether they’re complemented by dahlia, garden roses or fruit, runners always look so lush and romantic.

mothers’ bouquets

mothers flowers weddingmothers flowers wedding

I love these mothers’ bouquets that Chelsea Fuss of Frolic! styled and photographed for Project Wedding. Posies, also called nosegays, are such a sweet and modern alternative to corsages or wrislets. Whether a diminutive version of a bridesmaid’s bouquet or a small clutch of flowers that coordinate with wedding colors, posies can be carried by mothers, grandmothers, even flower girls.
