I really wanted to create the flowers for my son and daughter-in-law's wedding. I was thrilled when they asked me. The bride, Sarah, was a joy to work with. She told me she wanted a white and green color scheme. Together we looked at floral designs on Pinterest. When Sarah found a design she like she always said that the finished product should be "Inspired by Pinterest." I appreciated that she was realistic that a non-professional florist might not be able to recreate the original exactly.
When it came time to create the centerpieces, bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres I was so fortunate that my sister, three dear friends and even my nephew came and helped. None of them had any experience with flowers but they learned quickly and were fantastic helpers. The wedding was on a Sunday so we created the greenery for the wreaths on Friday afternoon. On Saturday morning we assembled the bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres. We also cut all the floral elements for the centerpieces and placed them in floral tubes so that the flowers were never without water. The 78 floral tubes were transported in carriers that we created out of the boxes that the flowers arrived in. On Sunday just before the wedding the wreaths were set on the tables and six floral tubes were tucked into each wreath. Everyone loved the finished result.
