Flower Arrangements

by

My friend Alissa and I created these gypsy-inspired arrangements last year for Mary’s rehearsal dinner. You could replicate the look of these with any flowers and any found object that can hold water to be the vase.

flowers- LE messy

I saved jam jars, wine bottles and water vessels for a few months. Scrubbed off the labels and voila, free vases!

ranunculi

Yellow ranunculi, puffy white hydrangeas, shiny magnolia leaves set off by nontraditional elements like fresh thyme and feathers.

dahlias

The dahlias in this arrangement really pop.

peony and black feather

I love the juxtaposition of the black feathers, pink peony and the black and white anemones.

A hot pink peony and a deep purple dahlia pulled together by the chartreuse feather.

Shh don’t tell anyone but we made all these arrangements for $100 total! All floral supplies came from the Flower Mart in Downtown LA and the “vases” were assorted jars and wine bottles I saved for this very event.

My best friend Mary is getting married on Halloween this year. Every time I tell someone this they scrunchy up their face and say “Costumes? Fake cobwebs? Why would you want that at your wedding?” Well I’m here to set the record straight, Halloween decor can be chic.

October flower arrangements don’t have to be all pumpkins, gourds and leaves (not that those are bad.) If you want to glam up your fall Holiday table or household decor check out these arrangements I made last year for a clients Halloween Dinner.
