Market Blooms: Flower art

We love flowers and that’s a big given.  From time to time, we treat ourselves by buying the blooms when we’re out grocery shopping.  Once unpacked, they instantly add life to a room.  Notice the immediate effect on your mood the next time you unpack your bouquet.

Whether you buy occasionally or weekly, we want to share some ideas through our Market Blooms series.  Sometimes plopping them into a container of water is all it takes.  But what if you wanted to shake things up a bit?  Well, you can!

The unfortunate thing is that life comes and goes.  Flowers, they bloom and wilt away.  So how do we preserve the prettiness of the blooms then?

Get out your camera and start snapping away.  Take pictures of your flowers.  Capture their living moments so you can enjoy them for a long long time.  Frame them to show off your floral arranging skills.  Or place them on a lonely wall.  Floral art for your space, look at that!

To get started, arrange the flower heads into something that looks good to you.  Play around with placement.  Snap the pictures when you’re happy with it.

When you can tell that the flowers have just a little bit of life left in them, get on it!

We’d love to see pictures of arrangements.  Hope you’d share!

Cheers!

{Styling} {Floral Design} Backdrops

Photos, people will always take photos at events says Captain Obvious!

If you score a wonderful venue for your wedding, photo backdrops wouldn’t be a challenge to spot.  Sometimes, you have to create that special photo spot for your guests.  You can have your stylist create a space that’s not only the designated photo backdrop but a spot that flows with the entire space.   It’s an element that can add to the event’s aesthetic for sure.
