August 23rd: KC Public Library

Turquoise has become a hot color this season! As you can imagine, there aren't ANY flowers in that color but there are some cool things we can do with non-floral accents to bring the color into the flowers. The reception tables were covered in black linens with turquoise table runners. We did a few different style centerpieces. Above is a tall cylinder vase filled with curly willow branches & green orchids. Do you see the fish swimming amongst the flowers? The vases were uplit from the base with disc lights.
The bridesmaids wore turquoise dresses & carried modern bouquets of white calla lilies, folded tropical leaves, & spider mums.
The bride's bouquet was a gorgeous grouping of white oriental lilies. Very fragrant & very large but it was awesome! To pull the turquoise in we weaved colored wire throughout the bouquet which worked well for her desired modern look.
The boutonnieres were white mini callas with accents of turquoise wire on the stem.
Another centerpiece style. Notice the wire swirled in one of the vases instead of flowers. Pretty cool!

I love the look of the turquoise wire! What kind of wire is that and where did you get it?
