Thursday’s Toast: When Pretty Meets Fabulous!

We decided to lighten up today.

With color of course!  It was time to get in touch with our softer side, and toast the wedding of Megan & Anthony. Pretty-meets-pink-meets-contemporary was the subtle, and elegant, theme to our design. With the fortunate luck of a the stylish Belle Mer as the venue, and the fantastic shutterbugs from Snap!, this wedding was a delicious delight of soft hues, and delicate textures!

Not only did we fall in love with this gorgeous couple, we floated about as we strategically placed in all the feminine, soft accents, and breathtaking details. I mean really?!  From the varying sterling dresses, to the couple, to the pink door…chic, chic, chic.

Hello Chic!

It was the delicate appeal of the flowers that captured our hearts. The couple had such an extraordinary style that was displayed so effortlessly in the design. The sterling accents gave the tablescapes the added appeal of elegance mixed with today’s modern feel. Notice the juxtaposing textures of this floral combination?  Leaves us a bit giddy.

Who Says Modern Can't Be Feminine?

It’s very easy to draw in the look of classic with a bold breath of fresh air! I keep spotting details that our design team added that make me think of a present twist on Gatsby/Deco…subtle, subtle, soft.

Varying Heights Of Delight!

We didn’t want to overshadow all of our lovely bride’s attention to detail. Look at those laser-cut table cards! So, we complimented it instead. The delicate appeal of the overall design shouted for simplicity. Now, you know us…when we state “simple” we mean clean. The layered heights, the clear glass, silver wire wrapped stems, all tiny, perfect details that do not outshine are ultra feminine flowers.

Is This Seat Taken?

Really?!  We may repeat it a bit too often…but we LOVE our job! So on this bright and sunny day, we toast the softer side of pretty. Many happy (and hearty) congratulations to Megan & Anthony! We had a blast.

A Pom Pom Of Pink!

Thursday’s Toast: Bring On Summer!

Hello Sun, nice to feel you.

So, here’s the skinny…we love writing to you! We also love our bustling season, so to share the love equally we switched over to good old Thursday. This way, we share last weekend’s parties with this week’s readers. Hooray! Today we are mad over summer! Do you feel the sun’s warmth? It’s hot already, and luckily for us we are saddled right up against the cool blue Atlantic.

We’re digging details, enjoying nature’s vivid colors, and taking notes on all our cute couples’ style. We just couldn’t resist a post on the pretty things about summer.

We (Heart) Beach

What is it about this season that makes you want to sip the most divine cocktail, while dressed to the nines in color, with an ocean view in front of you?…Add a boat and we are in heaven! From the adorable groomsmen styles to the refreshing twist on water, we say “Bring on the season!”.

Do you note the darling, colorful trim up the side of these seersucker pants? …Love This!  We marvel at the attention to detail summer commands; how color comes alive and “pops” off the page.

It’s such a playful season, full of fun ideas and great party choices. Seasonal delights leave everyone clamoring for more!…Summer oysters anyone?

Pop in some blossoming blooms, and we couldn’t be more content!  Summer’s vibrant background shouts for nature’s #1 art flowers. You choose the color (we love the whole darn palette), and we will set the mood.

Hello Beautiful, My You're Just Blooming Today!

An ode to summer! The season of long days, and exquisite nights. We love you, and every bit of inspiration you bring!

Cheers… this drink (tub) is on us!

Water Never Looked So Good

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!

*~Divine Design~*

One of my absolute favorite things about floral design is how a single flower can be used in so many unique ways. I love how one arrangement can look so different from the next, even when the same flowers are used.

While I adore gorgeous and lush arrangements, I’m a big fan of non-traditional arrangements too. I like to think of flower arrangements as a blank canvas, just waiting to blossom with color. There are so many fun ways to use flowers to create a stunning focal point at any event. Over this past season alone, our designers have created some fabulous designs with orchids, spider mums, roses, and so many other great blossoms. I can’t wait to see what phenomenal creations they come up with during this upcoming season. Take a look at some of my favorite that we’ve designed in the past!
