Dress up your Ceremony

The ceremony is usually your guests first impression of your wedding so lets set the mood!  This is where a lot of photos will be taken of this special moment in your life, so how do you decorate? There are so many way to create the ultimate ceremony space.  It is amazing what flowers and a little imagination can do!

  • Doors

If you can find a set of old barn doors or historical weathered doors, you can drape a sheer fabric to soften and create a backdrop.  Have your florist create a beautiful garland or swag of flowers to accent.

  • Draping curtains

Whether you have a cozy indoor ceremony or a romantic outdoor setting, a simple way to create an altar is to drape fabric over branches of a large tree.  It’s romantic, simple, and with some added floral accents it will bring your garden wedding to life.  If you are working with an indoor space try an arch with draped fabric, florals and lights. Eye-catching and romantic!

  • Hanging a curtain of lights

Hanging lights is such a beautiful and romantic backdrop to your ceremony.  It will illuminate your event with a beautiful glow, and the pictures will be jaw dropping!

  • Flower or garland curtain

Create a backdrop with a curtain of flowers or have a simple, minimalistic look with greenery garlands. The things florists have down with flowers to create those soft and beautiful backdrops is amazing.

Erin & Kevin

Erin and Kevin said their I Do’s on a beautiful day in Philadelphia, PA. Erin’s crystal beaded gown sparkled in the sunlight and was complimented by her bouquet of soft pink and white blooms. Kevin wore a white bloom with greens to match his bride. The reception took place at the Crystal Tea Room in Philadelphia where the tables were decorated in  soft neutral colors with pinks and greens to accent. Floating candles and tealights were added for a romantic candle lit atmosphere.

Growing Peonies


Peonies are one of our favorite flowers. Their attractive and lush blooms come in a multitude of colors. Peonies are one of the best-known and most dearly loved perennials. If a peony is well situated and happy, it may bloom for 100 years or more with little or no attention. But to get to that point, it takes some TLC. Peonies prefer a sunny location with well-drained soil. Good air circulation around the plant is also important. Peonies rarely bloom the first year after planting. It often takes three years before you see an abundant display of flowers. But once the plants do start blooming, you can look forward to a lifetime of beautiful flowers. A yearly application of all-purpose fertilizer and a top-dressing of compost is all a peony requires for good health. These are just a few tips, for you to get your garden blooming with gorgeous peonies.

Seasonal availability for spring wedding flowers

 Wedding season is around the corner! Some of the best flowers bloom in the spring, and can really take your bouquets, and arrangements to the next level. These are just some of our favorites!

1. A top choice for brides is the Peony.  Peonies have a short growing time, making these sought-after blooms even more desirable to brides walking down the aisle.  They come in all different colors, but most popular is white and blush.

2. Tulips are a great choice for spring.  Available all season, tulips are a great choice for bouquets, and centerpieces.  Tulips come in a range of colors, so they would be great to match with bridesmaid gowns.

3.  Anemones come in an array of petal colors and sizes and have a dark center. A highly versatile flower. These will add a great pop of color to your bridal bouquet.

4. Garden roses are great bloom to add to your nuptials.  They open so perfectly they will have you in awe.  Garden roses come in a variety of colors, especially coral, or blush would be a great choice for spring.

5. Daffodils are one of the flowers that just define spring.  They are one of the first flowers to pop up out the ground as a sign that winter is almost over.  Daffodil’s come in white, yellow, or a mix of the two.  They would look great in a centerpiece, as their bloom is slightly larger, and will fit in just the right spaces.

6. Sweet Peas are a lovely and unique flower that are sure to draw attention to any arrangement .

Here is a seasonal guide for the top wedding flowers

Leah & Kevin’s wedding at Laurel Creek Country Club

Leah and Kevin had a beautiful June day at the Laurel Creek Country Club. Her wedding style was very sweet with ivory and lace. To create the designs we used hydrangea, garden roses, queen annes lace and peonies. Our favorite touch was the hanging vases on the ceremony arch. Thank you to Alison from  Alison Dunn Photography for sharing their photos with us!

Peonies for Your Wedding

Peonies and garden roses…Oh MY!!! How I love them both!!

You really cannot go wrong with these luscious blooms, full and bold yet feminine and pretty!!

Depending on Season and availability both flowers will create a stunning look for bridal bouquets, bridesmaid’s flowers. Let’s be serious; they are perfect for any floral design for ceremony displays and reception flower decor.


Choose your style:  Are you a naturalist at heart? A purist? Or dream of a little glitz?

You will most likely fall into one of these design styles:   vintage, Hollywood glam, modern, simple or English garden.

Once your style is chosen these flowers are flexible and really PEREFCT because you can dress them up with either garden accents, Peony pinkscrystals, rhinestones or designed simply.




Peonies are a bit more delicate.. As all late spring blooms are! In New Jersey and Philadelphia their time to shine is Early June!!  While you can get these flowers in spurts at certain times of the year from Israel and Holland the price will increase. Supply and demand during these off seasons will make them range from $15.00 – $30.00 per stem.  So… If you are a late May or early June bride take advantage of the local gems that are typically priced around $8.00-$12.00 per stem. They are absolutely worth it!!  They remind me of a perfect slice of cake…Delicious!!




Garden Roses: They are a bit sturdier in warmer conditions in contrast to their friend the Peony and can be found throughout most of the year. Their prime time is June thru October!! With and incredible petal count these beauties will give the same look as peonies. Also the upside to using garden roses is they come in beautiful colors – shades of Pink, Reds, bold Yellows, butter yellow, Blush and Ivory. Garden roses are grown mostly in California due to the perfect temperature inland of Southern California.Garden style

If you ever have had the chance to visit a garden rose grower… It’s absolutely stunning!!

Spring Wedding Flowers

Spring Wedding Flowers

Spring wedding season will be here soon!  Thinking of getting married then?  You have a TON of options to choose from.  March, April, and May is a wonderful time to have fresh garden flowers to make your wedding day extra special!


Firstly, there is the good old faithful tulip. They pair nicely with hyacinth, grape hyacinth, anenomes, and ranunculus.  The tulips are pretty flexible (no pun intended), when it comes to arrangements.  You can submerge them and illuminate with candles.  Or you can place them into pretty much any other centerpiece of your choice.


spring wedding bouquet_ranunculas&tulips

Fun Fact:  Tulips actually continue to grow while sitting in floral arrangements!  You may receive a floral arrangement with tulips. When  you wake up the next day, they may be turned in another direction and even a little bit taller.  Weird, huh?


Unlike the tulip, which has no scent, the hyacinth has a beautiful, sweet smell to liven any bouquet or centerpiece (if you don’t have allergies!).  They are such cute little bell shaped blooms, we can’t help but say “awww” whenever they enter the shop!


Oh!  And who could forget the lovely peony!  Such elegance and beauty!



You can always call us to see what beautiful blooms have entered our front door!  We would love to hear from you!
