The marigold flower is one of the most recognizable flowers around the world, known for its vibrant yellow and shades of gold that resemble the sun. The marigold genus includes 56 species and varies from annuals to perennials. Though marigolds may be known as common garden flowers, they are beautiful, significant and meaningful in the flower kingdom. Grown all over the world, many see them as common weeds, yet when stripped down to their core, their beauteous shades of gold, orange, white and yellow are like no other.
Marigolds often vary in display as many have a pompop-shaped head made up of large amounts of small-layered petals, mirroring the sun. Other marigolds in the kingdom offer a variety of shades from darker petals on the inside to a lighter petal outline in more red-orange and maroon tones. Read More
For those of us not fortunate enough to live in eternal warmth, spring often signifies the much-welcomed peeling off restrictive layers, heavy woolen wraps and full length casings that double as winter coats. We’ve traded our cumbersome snow gear for the tailored sophistication of a trench coat and kitten heels. We breathe again and our world is filled with the budding optimism of sunlight.
Spring weddings are much like the light that breaks through the dense, grey haze of winter. They are flirty and fresh, bringing the first pops of bright color after the long departed summer hues have faded. They conjure images of lush rolling hills just beginning to sprout with green carpets and cobblestones wet from a light spring rain. Flowers, just like fashion, change for the season, and springtime flowers are some of the most beloved around the world. They are colorful, fun and bring sunshine into your days. Here at Bride and Blossom, we have a few of our favorite flowers that we love to work with during springtime weddings. Read More
We may still be waiting for April showers to bring May’s flowers to the streets of NYC, spring has officially sprung. Color palettes are getting lighter and brighter, and so is the mood of our bridal bouquets. Here are five of our favorites from the Bride & Blossom archives to spark your inspiration!
Kristy and Dave’s wedding brought lighthearted joy to the storied halls of the Harvard Club of New York. Opened in 1894, and on of the city’s first buildings to be officially designated a landmark, this is one of Manhattan’s most exclusive wedding venues.
For this spring wedding, beautiful bride Kristy wanted stylish, elegant wedding flowers that would be at home against the club’s traditional mahogany paneling, while also expressing the freshness of the season. A soft blush, cream and white color palette, featuring cherry blossoms, hit all the right notes.
We created a romantic, multi-dimensional bridal bouquet with budded and bloomed garden roses, blush anemones with black centers, and lisianthus. Bridesmaids carried simple, loosely-rounded bouquets of blush ranunculus and garden roses, accented with lisianthus. Read More
We have fallen in love with peony tulips! Also known as double tulips, or double-bloom tulips, these lush spring flowers are perfect for bridal bouquets. Peonies have always been a Bride & Blossom favorite. Gorgeous peony tulips combine everything we adore about peonies – velvety petals, sumptuous blossoms and subtle nuance of color – with tulips’ crisp spring freshness and joy.
Monika took the above shot of pink peony tulips in the studio last weekend. Soon we’ll share how those lovely blooms became wedding flowers. Until then, enjoy these peony tulips and “double-tulip” bouquets.
