Fresh Color Palettes for Spring

Whenever we do an event, whether it's a wedding, a corporate party or a house party, it always start with COLOR! Once a color palette is chosen, we can decide on the flowers we want to use (and linens, and drapes and other decorative items).

Often times a client will come in with colors in mind already. And we may add some complimentary colors to make the main colors pop, or add some other shades of the colors to accent the palette. However, there are other times when a client comes in and has no idea what colors they want...they just know they want something seasonally appropriate. That's where we come in. We will show you colors that are generally considered "Spring" or "Fall", etc.

So now, we are in the season of Spring. Traditionally, Spring is a great time for pale pastels, lots of green and even some times some jewel tones. The pictures in this post will show you some palettes that have been popular for Spring weddings in the past. 

But remember, there is no wrong or right when it comes to colors. Go with what you love and what will make you feel special on that day. If you only know two colors, we can help fill in the blanks. The most important thing on your wedding day is that your wedding represents you!

Flower Friday | Lilac

Photography: Julie Anne Photography

There are so many reasons to love lilac; its texture, beautiful smell, and whispy and romantic appearance are just a few reasons we love incorporating it into events and arrangements. It comes in various shades of white, purple and pink and sometimes even a soft green. Its strong stems make it ideal for arrangements, but can also make it difficult for it to drink water if not cut correctly! The way we ensure our lilac stays fresh is by cutting it at a slant (about 5 cm from the end of the stem) and making sure it drinks plenty of water before using it in our decor.

If you're using it in your home (which I love to do!) here are 4 tips to make your lilac last longer:
1. Place it in a glass vase, with a fresh cut, and make sure the vase is clean!
2. If it comes with flower food, make sure you follow the instructions on the flower food packet exactly. I personally prefer to change water and give a fresh cut frequently, but the flower food works very well.
3.  Do NOT place the vase in a spot that gets a lot of sun or a drafty spot. 
4. They absorb water fast, so always (every day) check to make sure it has enough water.

Estate Table Decor

Creating unique tablescapes and piecing together playful arrangements is one of the many perks about our job! Each table doesn't need a tall or low and lush arrangement, we love when we get to fill the table with candles, greenery, or small floral touches in bud vases. What's best about this is each composition is different and unique to the table! We use a mixture of elements with various heights to add dimension and what we'd consider a little bit of eye candy.

Last Minute Holidays Decor Tips

We've pulled together a few pictures we think inspire and could give great last minute ideas for your holiday tables and homes!

We love the top picture for its funky color palette, and its pops of fuchsia and pinks! We adore the idea of mixing those colors in with your typical reds and greens.

A garland is such a simple way to spruce up multiple areas in your home, if you have a designated drink station decorating it with a lush garland is so easy and adds a fresh feel. Little tip...home depot has HUGE 20ft garlands for 15 dollars, they're the perfect size to split up and incorporate into your window sills, dining tables or bar carts.

If you want to add personal touches for your guests, escort cards are the perfect way to do that, we used these little bud vases with a name card for one event, it's also an easy way to  add decor to your table and a nice favor to send home with your guests. 

We hope your tables are beautiful and your holidays are filled with love, laughter and good health! From our family to yours, happy holidays! xoxo
