Tuesday’s Toast: A Luxe Garden Escape At Rosecliff

A Magnificent Couple

The perfect couple got married this past Memorial Day weekend at Rosecliff, in Newport. Paula & Evan envisioned a new twist on summer luxury.

With the delightful collaboration of Elissa Held, NY event planner extraordinaire, we gleefully transformed Rosecliff Mansion into a turn of the century french garden theme.

The opportunity to work with varying elements from vintage bird cages to charming cherub sculptures, left us in the most joyful of moods as we juxtaposed textures, and weaved in ivy & lush garden flowers.

How divine are these tiny details of sparrows hovering over the flourish of the script above?!

Or this magnificent attention to detail with our french inspired moss overlay holding ‘court’ underneath these whimsical escort cards…s-p-l-e-n-d-i-d.

A Very Creative Idea

The real treat was in all the tiny details, as we always love to weave into our designs. Notice the textures of the linens balanced so gracefully with the abundance of the roses, peonies, and ivy (plus oh-so many more spring blooms). And the vintage & french elements that tied the whole theme together so perfectly.

The Romance Of A Garden Indoors

No detail was overlooked! The gold rimmed wine glasses complimented Rosecliff’s ballroom, as varying centerpieces were adorned all over to create a stately appeal. Do you spy the stunning, monogrammed chair covers and glass beaded charger plates?

Adorning A Statue

The height of our centerpieces allowed us to play with the flowers! And oh boy, did we play! We were excited (ecstatic) to add complimenting, big, fresh blooms to a variety of eye-catching areas all around these french inspired statues. Our design team relished the creative production of weaving ivy all about the vintage trellis’ and showing it off, as it trickled elegantly down the sculptures, past the fragrant & colorful blooms.

The Graceful Appeal Of Height

And what a glorious day it was! We were so happy for Paula & Evan (look at the runner below…spectacular). The sun was shining, and all the glorious purple/lilac elements stood out brilliantly against the backdrop of a vivid blue ocean view.

A Breathtaking View

So, Hat’s off to Paula & Evan! We wish you many wonderful years to come, and many wonderful “thank you’s” for allowing us to take place in such a glorious event. Cheers!

The Cluster Of Things

So, we have a secret to share… we love clutter. Well, really more like clusters of lovely blooms scattered daintily about a tabletop.

Clutter, clusters, clumps of tiny details, divine textures all placed around candlelight, wine glasses, large designs…anywhere! We just L-O-V-E colorful, sweet clusters of flower arrangements.

These pint size vases needed a day in the spotlight. They may be petite, but they pack a powerful punch!  They add a striking appeal down near the wine glasses, and candlelight. What a treat for guests! Look at how these delicate blooms are set aglow next to the mercury glass votives. Ahhhh….

A Feast For The Eyes

From cut crystal to modern glass cylinders, they add another element of detail that always make a design go from pretty to spectacular. It is wonderful to show off the finer details for guests, all the while filling the table with color. Below we got ourselves into a “twist” over these stems.

A Big Punch For A Small Accent

The magic of our lovely little friends is they set a mood day or night. Now you know why we love our clusters! The romance and femininity of the lunch table below is so inviting, I am left pondering why we never stay for the party?

A Bloom Of Romance

These tiny vases….la petit amis…you derserved a day in the spotlight, a moment to shine! Cheers to all the little nuances that make a celebration oh-so-special.

The Shade Of Pink Never Looked So Lovely

Tuesday’s Toast: Deliciously Divine Details

Happy Tuesday here at Stoneblossom!

The design floor is busy & bustling with blooms everywhere! The delight of the spring & summer season is the tiny nuances, the sweet subtleties, and the little slices of personal detail all scattered about these sunshine weddings.

It’s these precious, well thought out, details that make an event so personal and individual. We love helping our favorite bride & grooms-to-be incorporate themselves into their spectacular celebration. From the sweet touch of country bees buzzing above the escort cards to the double take of a shimmering butterfly nestled into a centerpiece, they all exemplify a playful personality.

Bringing The Outdoors In

Oh, how these courteous details make a memorable statement of “welcome”.

A Cozy Courtesy

How divine are these wraps, all coordinated in the wedding’s color scheme and presented perfectly packaged for guests? My most favorite (of course) treat is when a couple personalize the signature spirits awaiting you at the bar. Mmm…

A Hometown Spirit

Or these hand painted signs that make you feel a bit at home? Seriously…It just makes you feel farm chic!

Farm Chic

Now, some details are all tied together with a little bouquet for your four-legged family members.

Bark Worthy Touches

But as always here at Stoneblossom, our most special, most favorite, most memorable detail exudes a sigh worthy moment of L-O-V-E.  Ahhhhh….cheers to delicious details all season long!

Toasting All You Lovely Brides

Tuesday’s Toast: Tantilizing Textures

Well, Hello Tuesday!

We just love this day because it allows us to toast a deliciously divine wedding from the weekend. 

Blooming Bouquet

So, guess where we were? No, seriously guess! Here’s a hint: it’s exotic, abundantly green, and a designer’s dream:

….the ever green, ever glorious, ever graceful RWP Botanical Center in Providence!

THE BOTANICAL CENTER

Kirsten & Hans (this weekend’s toast) created a great day full of whimsy, abundance, and texture.

These two were a delight!

And the vision of eclectic spring colors swathed in texture made them a favorite on our design floor.

From the vendors to the couple, their wasn’t a detail that they hadn’t thought out perfectly. We were so  happy to be apart of it all.

Oh, and the use of colors. Nowyou know how we love our color, and when you let us play that with all sorts of natural textures…We -Are -In-Heaven!

A SPRING PACKAGE WRAPPED PERFECTLY IN MOSS

We played with succulents, fastened in orange orchids & tulips, molded bright spring moss, and gleefully topped off the look in abundant spring blooms of purples, yellows, and greens everywhere we could.

*SMILE*

What a treat for spring blooms (and for us).

The words ‘Playful’ and ‘Sophisticated’ were the perfect marriage for such color and detail.

Notice the rosemary placed ever so sweetly on every guest’s napkin? Intoxicating Scents Galore!

EARTHLY ELEGANCE

 We just can’t get enough of the bold play of color and the natural details that soften the look. But Kirsten & Hans’ lovely signs were our perfect pick of the evening.

Seriously, how cute are these signs?

Much love and memories you two! …Hip Hip Hooray!

ABUNDANTLY PERFECT


HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY WEEKEND!

To our mothers, your mothers, and everyone’s mothers… HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY WEEKEND!

Thank you for teaching us strength and gusto.

Thank you for making us blush with pride & joy.

Thank you showing us elegance and grace.

Most importantly, thank you for teaching us that beauty blooms from the inside out.

 Happy Mother’s Day!

Spring has sprung here at Stoneblossom. It took awhile for those pesky April showers to disappear, but now the sun is shining and it’s glorious!

What better way to celebrate our season than with a toast...every Tuesday! A Hats off (of sorts) to our most adorable, most wonderful, and most divine weddings of the season.

What did we love about the April celebration of Aleksandra & Scott at Castle Hill Inn? Everything! This lovely bride didn’t mind a few spring showers on her day. Nope, she just savored the moment, and we fell in love with the whole darn wedding.  

Soft purple tones added the perfect splash of color to our spring design, as lightly patterned orchids gave it that perfect POP.

Oh, the delight of color! Those purple and violetsthere is no doubt purple can be romantic, and a fun modern take on soft colors.

…Add some blues to the tables and you have Spring!

Aleksandra & Scott’s day seemed perfect for the mood they wanted to set.  To be under a tent of white with hints of Spring everywhere… we wish we could have stayed to dance!   “Hello Spring, meet intimate and inviting.”

 We love this shot (below) taken by our favorite Snap! happy girls (thank you talented gals). We’re simply giddy over the steel gray against the various shades of purple.

No toast is complete without honoring the bride & groom. So, cheers Aleksandra & Scott!

We loved every moment of designing those romantic flowers, and may we say you are a beautiful couple.

See you next Tuesday!
