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!

*~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!

Shamrocks and Leprechauns

A little Leprechaun stopped by the Stoneblossom studio this week. He brought with him a beautiful bouquet of shamrocks and a whole plate of Zeppoles!! He sure did spread a great amount of cheer as he hopped around our space. His little visit inspired us because of the vast amount of green that surrounded him.

He got me thinking about how truly great the color green is. It makes the perfect addition to any party or event. Green looks stunning as a focal color or even as an accent color. It also looks great combined with many other hues like blue, yellow, or purple.

We’ve designed multiple weddings and parties with beautiful green blossoms. We just adore bright green cymbidium orchids and plump spider mums. Oh, and how can I forget about gorgeous succulents potted in a sweet vessel, surrounded by fresh moss?

Ready to be inspired just like the little Leprechaun inspired us? Take a look at some of these special blossoms and bouquets…

Green is the perfect color for any bride or even for your groom:

We hope that you all had a fabulous St. Patrick’s and St. Joseph’s Day!

Pure Bliss: Celebrations!

We love weddings and parties, absolutely everything about them! That would certainly include the new magazine called Bliss Celebrations. This is a new publication that highlights everything fantastic about the wonderful world of entertaining. It focuses on color themed events, paying close attention to details, and so much more. The pages are filled with fabulous inspiration for whatever event that you are planning.

As a matter of fact, a couple of weddings that we’ve designed this past season were featured in the guide. This past July 4th weekend we were in Woods Hole, Massachusetts designing a stunning nautical themed wedding. Not one detail was overlooked at this magnificent affair. Take a look at what the magazine had to say:

The bride and groom of the next featured wedding did not let the rain spoil their special day. The storm clouds of Hurricane Earl rolled in just as this happy couple was about to say their vows. However, they took advantage of the storm clouds and used them as the perfect addition to their photos. All the details of this event held at OceanCliff in Newport, RI were planned by the wonderful Alexis from Unique Weddings by Alexis. See the three-page spread for yourself!

While the last feature was not a wedding, it was nothing short of extravagant. Club Zilla was created for the very special guest being honored at her Bat Mitzvah. Rhode Island Country Club was the setting for this spectacular celebration planned by the incredible Wendy Joblon.

* Snowflakes Are in the Air *

I glanced out the window while sitting at my desk today and noticed some snowflakes in the air. It totally warmed my heart seeing those little white flakes fall from the sky! Even though the temperatures are a bit cooler than I would prefer, this truly is such a wonderful time of the year. There are excellent sales in all the stores, people are hosting fabulous parties, and many people enjoy incorporating some incredible concepts in their decorating.

We have been busy beavers here at the Stoneblossom studio. Some of our corporate clients have asked us to install their holiday decorations. Take a peek at what we have been up to!

A Lovely Surprise

This was such a lovely morning. I had just taken the first sip of my delicious latte and logged on Facebook. Much to my surprise, there was a notification letting me know that we were featured today on The Ebury Collection’s blog. It’s a fabulous site from the United Kingdom’s own Hannah Gooch. On her site she showcases everything “for your perfect wedding” by highlighting style ideas and vendors.

Her posting today was all about another one of our favorite couples, Sarah and Kyle Hinchey. Their Tuscan-Inspired celebration took place at Belle Mer’s Island House in Newport, RI. From Sarah’s gorgeous bouquet of creamy white Lily of the Valley, to their ceremony arrangements that perfectly framed the couple as they said their vows, all the way to their beautiful Tuscan tables for their reception – we loved it all! These fabulous images were taken by Kristin Spencer Photography and the incredible lighting was provided by Ormonde Productions. This event was planned by one of our favorite event planners, Donna Kim,  of  The Perfect Details.

Happy Halloween!!!

Happy Halloween!!

Goblins and ghouls, ghosts and… flowers!! Halloween is such a fun time of the year! From dressing in disguise, all those fun sized candy bars, to pretty shades of orange everywhere.

We have recently designed some really gorgeous weddings using mostly shades of orange. The warm hue is so inviting and helps set the stage for a truly romantic occasion. Take a look at some stunning images by Snap! Photography highlighting the fun ways in which we have used this gorgeous color.
