During the winter months, did you know you can still have beautiful florals for your wedding?! Two amazing floral designers came together to create different winter floral arrangements that would be especially beautiful for us to share with you today! Mandy from The Potted Pansy and Viktoriya of The Hanging Gardens says, “These bouquets were each designed to facilitate the learning of different and unique bouquet design techniques. Each distinct technique is used to create a different feel, or look. And so having the knowledge and expertise in each technique is invaluable! Take a close look and you’ll see different shaped bouquets created by different techniques, as well as bouquets that are dense, airy, and light. It’s the combination of technique and flower selection that makes them look this way!”

“While making flower selections, I focused first on the focal blooms that would fill space and draw attention. Since we would be creating numerous bouquets, we used a wide color palette from which to choose and create unique colorings for each bouquet. The focal blooms we selected included garden roses, grown with care by US based farmers, specialty roses, locally grown dahlias, ranunculus, and locally grown lisianthus. Then we added in mid size blooms such as spray roses, blushing bride protea, and even a wide range of beautifully developed carnations!”

A selection of linear blooms is always a must as well! So stock, amaranthus, calcynia, and of course, my all time favorite branches, were added! Finally, texture flowers are just as important as any focal blooms and they’re my favorites! These bouquets feature astrantia, hanging pepperberry, wax flower, flowering oregano, crocosmia, pieres japonica, and many others! The final touches come through greenery and these bouquets didn’t lack on a wide variety of it!”
