Prom season is quickly approaching and as you finalize your dress and tuxedo looks, don’t forget about your prom corsage or prom boutonniere options, too. Selecting a boutonniere is one of the last items to check off the list before the big night but that doesn’t mean you should overlook it. A boutonniere can be simple such as a single blossom or as fun & funky as you can imagine, depending upon your personality.
Have fun with the process and don’t feel like you need to order the same-old same-old thing that everyone else is ordering. Florists are artists and love to create a one-of-a-kind piece for your special night.
This was such a fun wedding! Working with the bride, Mindi, was a treat and all of the special touches made the event top notch. Mindi chose the best of the best for her vendors including Essig Entertainment and Moxie Events. Her groom, Nick, was also very involved with the wedding planning which was sweet that it meant so much to him.
The wedding and the reception were held at Smith Oaks Ranch on Lorane Hwy in Eugene. Nick built the ceremony arbor himself and guests were seated on covered straw bales. The reception was in another cleared field area and the rectangular tables were a fresh alternative to the traditional rounds. The burlap table runners were hand-made as well as the burlap “Just Married” banner. We added simple milkglass budvases to each table, wine barrels and buffet tables. The overall look of the centerpieces was cohesive but each table had a different combination of flowers.
For Mindi’s bridal bouquet in shades of yellow and white I used “Alexandra” roses, “Butterscotch” roses, freesia, yellow-green cockscomb, hydrangea, stock, “Helga Piaget” garden roses and “Moonstruck” spray roses. Lots of jewels were added for plenty of sparkle.
These pictures were taken by Dandelions but if you want to see more of the wedding, check out Erika Nicole who photographed the event.
One of our sweet sales clerks, Sophie, got married to her beau, Todd, this August and the flowers were a perfect reflection of Sophie’s sweet, bubbly personality. They were married at a local church and then the reception was held at Sophie’s parent’s rural country home. Since Sophie is definitely a girlie-girl there were lots of pink touches and plenty of tulle!
Wedding consultant, Julianne, worked with Sophie to turn her fantasy wedding into reality. We ordered in a variety of rose that is actually called “Sophie”… HOW PERFECT! She also used nerine lilies, hydrangea, roses, freesia, cymbidium orchid blossoms and green “Athos” poms. The bridal bouquet was made even more stunning by adding bead details to loops of lily grass. This was reflected in the groom’s boutonniere as well.
Sophie did the reception centerpieces herself using birch branches, the green poms and lighted branches that really showed up once the sun went down. We are so happy for Sophie and Todd and were glad to help one of our own make her dream day come true!

I love going to Pottery Barn. Mostly I go and dream of what my house might look like if it weren’t covered in toddler toys, a stroller parked in the corner and the ever present pile of laundry. Ok, maybe it still wouldn’t look like a Pottery Barn showroom…
We were actually at Pottery Barn because they invited us to be a part of their Bridal Event so we joined other local vendors and spent the evening chatting with brides about all of the fun new floral trends for the year.
Ranunculus was the star of the show at last night’s Bridal Event. It was displayed in the bridal bouquets and centerpieces but really got bride’s excited as a ring, corsage & boutonniere. Ranunculus is in its prime right now and is a great alternative to roses with its peony-like petals.
The exotic pincushion protea took best supporting actor because of its uniqueness. We made everyone touch it so they knew it was real!!

A corsage technically refers to the bodice of a dress where, during the 19th century, flowers were worn. Today a corsage is more typically seen worn on the wrist or pinned onto a jacket.
