Planning & Inspiration

Thinking Inside the Box

Roses, wedding decorWe recently spent the day in Brooklyn, working with a talented team, on a styled shoot. Helen Guzman, of Bonito Designs, displayed perfect blush roses and delicate sprays of baby’s breath in beautiful glass boxes and a French country glass canister. We used a simple, wooden box to create a centerpiece of Dahlias and wildflowers.

All these boxes reminded us to always think outside of the box; to look for inspiration everywhere and consider how objects around us can be used in creative wedding flower designs. Remember this next time you plan a dinner party or holiday at home. Look around and experiment by using your own home decor items– small mirrors or frames, china tea cups, carafes, canisters– in unique floral centerpieces.
