Woo-hoo, it’s Friday. For me, that means another awesome wedding-filled weekend, and I am super psyched. I love getting up and knowing that in the next few days, some very special couples are about to take their first steps as man & wife, and that I get to be in some small way part of that– it’s one of the best parts of my job.
I wanted to kick of the weekend o’ celebrations for these couples & for you (’cause come on, Friday = first night of the weekend) with a bouquet to make you “forget” the week: an amnesia rose bouquet.
Amnesia is a rose that has a very antique quality: it’s almost a desaturated purple on it’s base, with color that comes up and fills the tips of the petals with edges of purple and then you get an extra cool impact with the slightly green tinted tips on the tops of the rose: super unique!
I made up this bouquet for a lovely bride in June. Her small wedding party included her three darling girls, who carried little mini-bouquets. How cute is that? The bride had seen the amnesia rose in a magazine and had her wedding colors completely coordinate with the rose: purple, green, and as an accent– chocolate brown became her primary color palatte. The resulting bouquet was nothing short of beautiful, check out the gallery below for the details:
The bouquet handle was dressed with chocolate brown double-faced satin, then embellished with purple ribbon and pearl pins.
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!
