Peony Season: A Fresh Floral Inspiration Shoot
Posted by Kate. Filed under Color Palettes, Flowers, Wedding Inspiration

I’m up in the Pacific Northwest this spring and summer… and the peonies are blooming everywhere…it’s such a gorgeous time of year.   When I received this tabletop inspiration shoot, created by the fab Southern California team of Hello Studios, Lindye Galloway Events, and The Vines Leaf, naturally, I was in love.  The blend of pinks and peaches, full blooming peonies, and clean, chic design is almost too much loveliness to handle.  (Sigh.. ) Enjoy it!

DIY Wednesday: An Orangerie-Inspired Centerpiece
Posted by Kate. Filed under DIY Wednesday, Do It Yourself, Reception

By: Chelsea Fuss

Orangeries were small greenhouses filled with fruit trees and plants in the 17th century. Can you imagine having a lush table filled with fruit and greens for a winter wedding? Think beyond red and green for Christmas and display these festive centerpieces at your December wedding. The idea would look beautiful for a January wedding too. You could even add some paperwhites and tiny votive candles!

You’ll Need:

Bunches of greens (each table will take about 1/4 of a bunch). The best greens for this are: boxwood, oregonia, myrtle, pittosporum and bay.

A few pounds of oranges or tangerines (preferably with the leaves still on them)

White pitchers, bowls and vases

1 Myrtle topiary in a terra cotta pot

To Re-create this centerpiece:

1. Collect 4-5 white bowls, pitchers and vases per table.

2. Fill with water and casually arrange stems of greens in them.

3. Display in the center of your table with a small myrtle topiary planted in a terra cotta pot.

4. Place a few of the oranges or tangerines directly on the table.

5. Add candles or white flowers for a more formal wedding!

Afterwards, send your guests home with the fruit, greens and plants.
