Happy Spring Brooklyn Bride! I can’t believe we are on our 12th tablescape. This table really sums up all we’ve tried to accomplish with this series. Which is to present a fresh modern perspective on floral design that is approachable and easy to create. When discussing the series with Adrienne and Tory, we kept returning to the word “happy’ as in our desire to create classic designs that make you smile. And there is certainly no happier a flower than the daffodil. They just embody cheerfulness to me. A ceramic blue and white planter from Pearl River (or any home goods store) holds a mass of fringed and double white tulips, green parrot tulips and hellebore. I made some little yellow daffodil “topiaries” using a bit floral foam covered with moss and place them in small Chinese bowls. A grass green runner and cute checked salad plates finish it off. Adrienne worked closely with designer Hermias Wishes who designed the perfect accompanying paper goods. I love the table’s crisp breezy feel -perfect for April. I hope you enjoy it.
I know I can speak for Adrienne and Tory when I say THANK YOU Brooklyn Bride for this amazing experience. The chance to be able to share with you my ideas has been a real treat. – Denise

Remember when baby’s breath was only accompanied by a single red rose? It just doesn’t do this beautiful, whispy flower justice! I’ve been coming across beautiful arrangements of baby’s breath recently and it’s been inspiring me to want to do my own projects. Maybe these might be inspiration for your wedding?
Over the weekend I popped over to the Brooklyn Winery to check out their wedding setup and came upon some majorly beautiful flowers & huppah by BB vendor Graceful Gardens. I was absolutely fascinated by the leaves used to decorate the huppah, and discovered they are cecropia leaves from Hawaii…they’re absolutely stunning, dont you think?
