Behind the Scenes | Punch Bowl Flower Arrangement

I'm still a little obsessed with the flower our arrangement from the ABC/ISES event last week.  (See yesterday's blog post for more info.)  It was put together by the talented Meghan Stoller of MUM Floral Design.  I'm so excited to see more of her work at the weddings we are working on together this Summer!  We started out with our design, a trip to the floral wholesaler and a giant silver punch bowl.  The flowers used were gorgeous carmel garden roses, white roses, ranunculus and hydrangea.  Meghan brought andromeda that was from her own garden.  Here are the photos of the arrangement coming together...enjoy!


See the prior post for photos of the final product.

Wedding Sugar Palette #1004 | Barely Metallic

I'm writing this on a beautiful day, the sun is pouring in through the window on to my desk.  What a perfect time of year.  This color palette is very exciting in that it is the first I'm publishing (aside from real weddings) that I've had the chance to take from color palette, to inspiration board to an actual table-scape.

This was created for the annual Association of Bridal Consultants (ABC) / International Special Events Society (ISES) Table Top Design Competition which made for a wonderful day this past Monday.  Meghan Stoller from MUM Floral Design put together a stunning punch-bowl flower arrangement for the table.
Here is the inspiration board:

Inspired by bare tones of gold and cream, this color palette is easy on the eyes and intriguing to guests.  Hints of lavish sparkle round off this luxurious wedding design.

The elegant neutrals become the palettes strongest color tones while black acts as the bold base that grounds the concept.  This palette is for a bride and groom who have a flair for bold choices like a silver bridal gown and abalone chandeliers, and who want a timeless theme with modern glamor.
