Celebrating your big day with family and friends while being close to your newlywed is what makes the day so magical and fires up the romance of it all. As we know, wedding days can get a little hectic amongst the greetings, pictures, dancing and toasts. It can appear to fly by in the blink of an eye! We know how special this day is, how much planning goes into it and, at the end of the day, the bride and groom’s main purpose is to be with one another. At your wedding reception, having a special place for the two of you to catch up and enjoy each other during the excitement is something we find extremely special and essential. Creating a ‘Sweetheart Table’ for two is a great way to find your alone time while still being involved with guests and adored by all. This not only makes the sweetheart table a great concept, but it also adds another decorative feature to your venue. We have a few great tips and tricks on making your sweetheart table one to be admired by all and adding an extra touch of enchantment to your special day. Read More
We loved being a part of this charming, book-themed wedding for a New Jersey bride who loves getting lost in a story. Vows were framed by a gorgeous blush-and-cream floral archway. Romantic clusters of blooms included Tibet roses, sweetheart roses and ranunculus, accented with geranium leaves, seeded eucalyptus and olive tree greens.
This natural, whimsical look continued with all the wedding flowers. Eucalyptus berries and passion vines gave the bridal bouquet, composed of spray roses and garden roses, organic texture, while sweet pea and lisianthus added delicacy. A garland of lush greenery and fresh-cut blooms adorned the sweetheart table.
Framed quotes from great authors – from A.A. Milne to Cormac McCarthy – and table numbers printed on vintage book pages, joined arrangements featuring dahlias, quicksand roses, manzanita branches and moss. Illuminated by rustic lanterns and candlelight, the celebration seemed to take place in a fairy-tale forest. Read More
Kyna and Peter’s chic Manhattan wedding, at Bryant Park Grill, couldn’t have been any sweeter. Glamorous bride Kyna envisioned an elegant outdoor affair, shot through with pure romance.
Kyna carried a bridal bouquet of fluffy, light-pink garden roses. Bouquets composed of a single type and color of flower are always a classic choice. The groom’s boutonniere was a single, budded garden rose with an accent of greenery.
Lush reception tablescapes cast a rosy glow for the party, with blush and light-pink roses, Candy Bianca roses in the perfect shade of medium pink, and blush hydrangea. These long, low arrangements were surrounded with clusters of small white candles, floating in glass vases. Read More
Looking for an elegant Manhattan wedding venue with a stunning view? Caroline and Jonathan’s celebration at Le Parker Meridien New York will inspire you. This French-tradition hotel offers several lovely event spaces, but floor-to-ceiling windows, overlooking Central Park, make the Estrela Penthouse something special.
Bride Caroline chose wedding flowers in a palette of light pink and cream, with touches of lavender, accented with soft green. She wanted a loose, natural look for her bridal bouquet. We included blush garden roses, light-pink roses, off-white garden roses, ivory spray roses and white sweet pea, with blush astilbe, dusty miller and jasmine vine accents.
To create an intimate, ethereal ceremony space, trios of floral arrangements, set at varying heights, featured lush, cream hydrangea, studded with lavender and light-pink roses and garden roses, and finished with cascading amaranthus, ivy and Italian ruskus. High card table and reception centerpieces were variations on this theme. Read More
I love every single floral arrangement we do at Bride & Blossom. If someone asked me to pick my favorite flower, or color, I would have a very hard time. The same goes for the styles of our centerpieces. That said, I do hold a special place in my heart for certain designs.Right now I am really loving the sweetheart table centerpiece style. No other centerpiece style can really compare with the bold lushness of this particular arrangement. A sweetheart table, in case you did not know, is, as The Knot says,
A sweetheart table is a small table set up for just the bride and groom at the wedding reception. The happy couple sits together, facing their guests, with their wedding attendants and families at tables in close proximity. The advantage is that you get to spend time together and enable your wedding party to sit with family and friends. If you’re not comfortable with being the focal point at the wedding reception, you can have a head table. Your head table can be similar to the other reception tables or it can be a dais table (elevated), to stand out. The head table can consist of all the wedding attendants or include the parents, siblings, grandparents and anyone else who is very close to the bride and groom.
