Inspiration of the Day: Cakes

The trend of placing fresh flowers on your wedding cake (or any special celebration cake) has went through several transitions over the years as styles have changed. For us, this is great! (And for the bakers and clients as well.) We have seen some beautiful cake florals, and we have definitely heard of our share of calamities. Here are a few of our tips for choosing fresh floral for your cake:

1. Do your research. Find cakes you like and cakes you do not like.

2. Have an open conversation with your baker and florist about the details of having fresh flowers on your cake. (i.e. What flowers match your wedding style and cake best? Which flowers work best on cakes? etc.)

3. Most importantly: have a professional put the flowers on your cake. Make sure either your florist or your baker will be putting the flowers on your cake. You do not want someone who has never put flowers on a cake to do this. There are structural things that need to be done to ensure that the flowers stay on your cake and that your cake stays standing.

If you are using a professional florist and baker, they will work together on what needs to happen and who will do what. This will keep you from having to worry about these details, and all you will need to do is pick your cake and most importantly: your flowers!

Inspiration: Boutonnieres

Today, we wanted to highlight one of our favorite things: the boutonniere

Traditionally, the groom gives the bride her bouquet, then the bride plucks a single bloom from her bouquet and gives it back to the groom for him to wear.   However, we are finding more and more of our men wanting to really showcase their personality in their boutonniere. 

Enjoy these inspirations and don't forget to check out our Pinterest board for more ideas!

Greening of The Gardens

We were honored to take part of Greening of the Gardens at Botanical Gardens of the Ozarks this year. We are always excited to hear from the team at the Gardens, and this year was no different. Here are a few of our pictures throughout the process, and a few shots of the final product.

We can't wait to work with the Botanical Gardens again, and look forward to next year's "Greening". Enjoy!!

We "greened" the studio that week with all of the centerpieces. We chose white and green to keep the look fresh for the outdoor party.

The before, during, and after shots of our buffet centerpiece. We ended up making 3 large urn arrangements for the event.

We created three different looks for the varying tables using the same flowers.
