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!

Tuesday’s Toast: Wonderful Weddings One Week At A Time!

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!

Oh, What A Smashing Good Week!

What a lovely week here at Stoneblossom…with Kate & William’s wedding on our mind, we have been (splendidly) up to our eyeballs in Orchids. A flower as majestic and magical as they come!

Sultry Splendor

We are blushing (and now gushing) over such a delightful week of royal treatment!

On Monday, Dennis made his show stopping appearance on FOX Providence’s Rhode Show, delighting us all with his expertise on designing a royal tablescape fit for a king. Bravo Dennis! Now, just don’t leave us for your own t.v. series.

Dennis on the Rhode Show for the Royal Wedding Week

By Wednesday we were knees deep in white, sultry orchids, dark plum callas, and feathers galore (sense a theme?) for the big reveal at FOX Providence’s City Bride Event last night at the Biltmore Hotel.

Ooh…the dresses were divine and the city lights were delightful!

The night’s big reveal of one special couple winning a great wedding called for sultry & sleek designs. Our take on modern majesticdelicate orchids and an abundance of candlelight (of course).

Shimmer, sheen, and sophistication!

A Regal Table Fit For A King

Ahh…the allure of candlelight & delicate textures.

G-L-E-A-M

What a great night! Here we are pondering…

Do you think we have what it takes to be part of the royal wedding party?

Hmm…..

No worries! The City Bride event was just the perfect slice of glamour for the evening.

Thank you City Bride & The Rhode Show! We’ll come back anytime.

*~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!

Something Special for Your Bridesmaids

We just love flowers, everything about them! I’m sure that’s quite obvious, but we feel it can’t be said enough! That’s why today’s post is all about flowers for your bridesmaids.

A great way to add a splash of color to the ceremony site is with the flowers that your bridesmaids will hold. Some brides prefer neutral colors, while others really like to add pops of fun and vibrant colors.

We’ve seen some really unique bouquet concepts over the years. We’ve designed weddings where each bridesmaid holds a different bouquet, but all designed with similar colors. We’ve also designed weddings where the Maid of Honor holds something a bit different than the other girls. And more commonly, we’ve created similar bouquets for all the bridesmaids in the line. It doesn’t matter what the concept or color is, bridesmaids bouquets are just another place for a fun detail and splash of color.

Take a look at some of our favorites from the past seasons:
