Let’s Get Organic

Now that the weather is warm and sunny, more brides are choosing to have their weddings outdoors. if you’re one of those brides, instead of opting for ball arrangements, how about going for more organic spring-y arrangements?  I for one am in LOVE with this new trend. It looks so chic and vintage. If you love having flower bushes in your yard, this is the trend for you. Organic arrangements have lots of greenery with just the right amount of flowers. You don’t just have to incorporate flowers and greenery, lots of arrangements are now including succulent, seasonal fruits, vegetable heads, and pincushion protea. For the flower bush effect, you can use a branch as your vase and create an arrangement of hydrangeas, ranunculus, roses, tulips, peonies and lavender along with bell of Ireland, eucalyptus branches, red hypericum berries, and orange mokora orchids. Instead of branches you can use a wooden planter with lotus pods, heads of purple purple kale, pierus Japonica, dusty lacey, or burgundy nandina. For a more vintage feel, you can use a vase and add dahlia, ranunculus, roses, and tons of branches of lady banks.  Or you may decide to go for candlesticks topped with arrangements of a million (or less) of eucalyptus branches with spottings of pastel colored roses and sprigs of white astilbe. For the bride and groom’s chairs, you can tie an arrangement made of roses, ranunculus, burgundy nandina, peonies,  and branches of star of Bethlehem. If you’re having a wedding in the fall when the leaves begin changing colors, you can use a hollowed out birch log filled with preserved green moss with orange dahlia with bittersweet vines. It’s totally different and unique and I bet you’ll be the only one of your friends with it. So don’t be afraid to be more organic. It’s good to be green.
