This blog post is all about candles, the illuminating decorative pieces that we love to display this time of the year. Adding to the wintry magic that fills the air, they can completely enhance the look and feel of a room. And we’ve all experienced how just lighting a few candles on the fireplace mantle creates a warm, inviting atmosphere for everyone to enjoy.

Many are feeling a loss of holiday tradition and trying to navigate these last days of 2020 has been difficult. One way to get over the heartache is to create new traditions. Since candles are ever-present right now, we decided to explore the tradition of decorating for the holidays with a focus on winter wedding centerpieces with candles that you can make at home.

‘Home is where the heart is.” While the saying is true, our relationship to ‘home’ has drastically changed this past year due to Covid-19. You can love the apartment, house, or condo in which you live, but having to carry out every aspect of your professional and personal life day in the same confined space day after day takes a toll. The reprieve that the holiday season usually offers from the stresses of work and life such as traveling and joyous visits with friends and family are not on the itinerary for 2020. This being said, we still have much for which to be grateful. If you haven’t made a list yet, try jotting down just a few lines detailing what you are thankful for – the exercise helps to shift perspective and uplift the spirit – guaranteed.

A bride wants many things from a wedding dress. As the most important article of clothing she will ever wear, it should make her feel confident, beautiful, and true to her personal style, but with a bit more sparkle and shine for the once in a lifetime occasion. BB Featured Bride Fanta knew she had found ‘the one’ when she stepped into a gown by Martina Liana. “I wanted to feel like a showstopper and my dress did just that!” Here, Fanta reminisces about her ‘say yes to the dress’ moment and bridal personals.

In the age of dating apps, it’s rare to hear about a love story that blossomed from a grade school crush. Darwin caught Fanta’s eye on the first day of their freshman year of high school. “I surveyed the room of my history class for a seat and noted this boy in the back laughing and talking with his peers. He seemed like someone I would enjoy hanging out with,” Fanta remembers. Over the next couple of years, they kept with the same circle of friends, watched each other’s sports events, and even went on a few dates. “However, it wasn’t until senior year when a friend suggested we dress up as twins for senior ‘twin day’ that we really started to hit it off and break the ice,” Fanta says. “I started to learn more about Darwin’s beliefs, his wittiness, and love for weird hats – he even made me wear a matching one on twin day!’” Just a few months before graduation, Darwin finally asked Fanta to be his girlfriend. They were both accepted to the same college program and the rest is history.

When Dayna and Matthew first met at the go-to-Friday-night bar in their senior year of college, sparks flew right away. “I wasn’t looking for anything serious though. I was just trying to have a good time. But Matthew was very persistent that we were going to continue dating,” Dayna looks back and says with a laugh. His relentless effort paid off and eight years later, the couple exchanged vows in a magnificent summer wedding at Gurney’s Montauk.

We are excited to introduce Dayna, our BB Featured Bride for June. Here she shares the first part of her and Matthew’s love story.

Spring Fling! Flower Class

The most recent flower class at the Bride & Blossom showroom on the Upper East Side was one of our most successful yet — we are always so happy to see the beautiful creations made by our students at the end of the night! The spring fling theme carried through their designs in the form of bright tulips, lush greenery and delicate pastel accents.

Sharing our passion for the art of floral design is one of the best aspects of being a part of the team at Bride & Blossom, and we cherish these nights when we have the opportunity to come together with the community and teach them to make something beautiful.
