Morgan's Bridal Bouquet

Morgan's bridals were today in this crazy, crazy weather. I hope shes able to get at least a couple outdoor photos in this blizzard. 

Wish I could have gotten better photos but hopefully I can get some from Morgan's pro photog.

Bouquet consisted of White dahlias, Pink ranuculus, Yellow billy balls and white feverfew. Tied with the perfect shade of aqua ribbon with a feminine bow.
 Can't wait for Morgan's DIY wedding this April!

Blooming Tuesday {Parrot Tulips}

Parrot Tulips

Parrot tulips are similar in style to other tulip varieties, in exception to one major distinguishing feature -- their frilly petals. Parrot tulips characteristically have feathery, twisted or scalloped petals which can resemble a parrots feathers- hence their name.
Parrot tulips come in a variety of colors including- pink, green, red, yellow and bi-colored. They are perfect for use in a cascading bouquet or bunched together for a bigger impact in a centerpiece. 
So feminine but can be fun at the same time!
Spring has officially started but you sure cant tell here in Utah with the rain and snow in the near forcast. Lets cross our fingers that Spring will show its beautiful face soon.

Blooming Tuesday {Cypripedium}

{Lady Slipper Orchid}

Cypripedium species are members of the orchid family. Referred to as Lady’s slippers, these interesting plants have only two leaves branching out from its center. The flower itself resembles a slipper or moccasin, which is what spawned its name. These dainty blooms ranging white, yellow, and deep pink to nearly purple remain tightly closed with exception to the small opening in the front.

Lady slippers may not be for every bride. They lend to a more natural and organic feel but can also be for the high end chic affair as well.

Blooming Tuesday {Muscari}


From the hyacinth family, muscari are also know as grape hyacinth. They are named so because of their clusters of small, bell-shaped, cobalt-blue flowers that look like clusters of upside-down grapes. Color varieties include light blue, cobalt blue, white and green. Muscari can be found in late winter to early spring but hurray ladies; these beauties have short availability.

Wouldn't these be perfect for your incorporation of "something blue"? I do believe so!
