Creating a Tropical Haven
I am stoked that I have been hired to decorate a wedding reception this weekend in a local Davis, CA restaurant! The party is for a great couple who gave me their budget, a few parameters and then let me loose on the design! The happy couple eloped and married in Hawaii over the holidays so they want to stick with a bright, tropical theme. I usually start my brainstorming process by looking at photos (usually online) to get some ideas for specific flowers and color schemes I want to use. This time I created my own pinboard on Pinterest to help myself along with this process. Here are some of the photos I saved.
Isn't this cake just great?!
I love how these arrangements are very organic and simple with the leaves and pink ginger. The way the sun is shining in the photo is lovely as well.
The protea pincusion and orchid combination is a great tropical design.
This is ultra modern and sleek. Just take floral spray paint, paint your leaf white and add the cymbidiums. It is a beautiful design!
This is a very beach-y look with the shells at the base of the arrangement!
