Sharon and Dean are so cute!  They even make gas stations look like fun.

I mentioned before that Sharon and Dean's wedding was very family-oriented.  Well, this detail takes the cake!  Ambitious Angel decided we needed a huge manzanita "family tree" filled with dangling vintage lockets.  Each of the 73 lockets had a picture of a family member inside.  It was the talk of the evening!

I attached leucadendrons and orchids for a splash of color.

These funky little cocktail arrangements featured fuchsia bromeliad plants.

Dean's only must-have request was that the reception be filled with the sweet aroma of tuberrose. Of course, T-Petal made it happen!  Each guest had a perfect tuberrose blossom on their napkin, and Sharon and Dean's sweetheart table was loaded with them.  The smell is utterly delightful.

Loved the apple green napkins against the brown linens and draperies.

Graceful james storei orchids added some drama and height to the lush tall centerpieces. Orchid buds were affixed to the glass cylinders.

Some of the flowers I used were leucodendrons, dendrobium, mokara and cymbidium orchids, bells of ireland, roses, sweet william, and fuschsia cockscomb.

The short centerpieces were bursting with color and crisp texture. Here they are displayed at the afterparty which took place at Sharon's gorgeous family estate just steps away from the reception site. How conevenient!

    Hi!
    I just stumbled upon your blog while I was looking for tall wedding floral arrangments. Can i just say that I absolutely LOVE your designs. You can definitely tell you put a lot of time and love into what you do.

    I am a ‘newbie’ to the business, actually haven’t even started, just getting my feet wet and discovering all these different techniques. In this blog post, I love the tall arrangement you posted. I’m always amazed at the lushness of tall arrangements, but always wondered how you are able to have all of that without it tipping over (from the weight) and how you are able to ‘hide’ the stems? Is there a special florist secret to this??

    Thanks for your help…I’ve been going through all of your posts inspired by all of your designs! Great work…

    Sincerely,
    Ann

      Hi there!

      Thanks so much for your comment ๐Ÿ™‚ For Sharon and Dean’s tall arrangements, I just used a nice sturdy glass vase, and used a pretty wide plastic dish to place the oasis and florals in. I used florist gummy on the rim of the vase to secure the arrangement. The weight of the arrangement, as long as it’s evenly disbursed, usually sits well on top of the vases. Even better if you fill the vase with water (I didn’t for that particular wedding). As long as a wild guest doesn’t totally bump into the table.

      Hope that helps! Best of luck!
