My boss, Mel Day of Dogwood Tree Floral Design had two weddings this weekend; one Sat. and one today. Top: the bride's bouquet he made; she had chosen a hummingbird theme, and supplied some like the one above to be used however Mel saw fit. Some were going on the cake, and some were going to be hanging from tree branches. I am sorry that I won't get to see that one today! The bouquet featured white peonies, green and blue hydrangeas, green dendrobium orchids, orange mokara orchids, and blue delphinium. They look even better if you click to enlarge!
I made the boutonniere above for the groom; blue delphinium florets, dendrobium orchids and green hypericum "berries", with ruscus.
Saturday's wedding table centerpieces were half tulips and half hydrangeas.
Below is one of three buffet centerpieces. Another of Mel's "harem" made them. That's what Mel's brother calls all the women who work for him.
Next is a close-up of a wreath I made for the front door of the wedding location; an old home in a town south of here named Fuquay-Varina (ponder that for a while.....LOL)
Another view of the bride's bouquet. I am lucky to work with people who are this good at what they do!
