Pretty in Pink
Boquets owner Kari Smith used Coral Charm peonies, green viburnum, purple fuchsia celosia, green tea roses, green leucadendron, pea orchids, eryngium, and Plerus in this bouquet.
Boquets owner Kari Smith used French tulips, hanging green amaranthus, oralia, golden poppy pods, and blooming grevillea in a full, lush, neutral-hued “bloom on bloom on bloom” bouquet (left) and chose astrantia, clematis, Plerus, chamecordia rey, Parvifolia palm, pussy willow, and seeded eucalyptus in the loose and airy creation at right.
Like a Garden
Floral wedding designer Alex Nelson of Perfect Petal chose flowers that could be growing in a spring Colorado garden, including peonies, sweet peas, hyacinth, cherry blossoms, and dahlias.
Here Comes the Sun
“The sun was my inspiration for this bouquet,” says Alex Nelson of Perfect Petal. It includes roses, pincushion protea, red scabiosa, rannunculus, lemons and gardenia foliage.
Lighter Shades of Pale
This bouquet, which includes ranunculus, butterfly ranunculus, carnations, eucalyptus, lilac, and pampas grass, represents the current trend toward neutral, nude colors, says owner Emily Rodriguez of The Ruffly Rose.
Dried arrangements—this one contains pampas grass, pussy willow, bleached Italian ruscus, thistle, ferns, and bunny tales, as well as a dried lotus pod—are in right now, says Rodriguez of The Ruffly Rose.
