Over the past six months, I had an up-tick in brides interested in doing ombre/color gradients for their wedding florals. While some brides love the new trend, others were curious to see if it could be done in a softer way that created a more bridal and timeless look. Thus, the concept for the shoot was born.  “Samantha of Blushing Blooms”

The table-scape matches the flow of the ombre flowers. Outer seats have cool blue napkins and the next seat has periwinkle napkins. As the flowers transition to purple, the third seat has lavender napkins and the last outer seat has a light pink napkin. All seats feature an iridescent, gold rimmed charger plate and gold utensils. Clear glass bubble candle stick holders with colored twist candles are placed throughout the table to add dimension and shape to the design. Hand painted ranunculus are placed on each plate to match the corresponding napkin.  “Showcase Events/ Sheena Abbott”

What did you use for flowers Samantha?

Haus of Stem Irithurium, Mini Hydrangea,  Roses, Carnations, Dianthus Green Trick, Delphinium, Sweet Pea, Hyacinth, Lisianthu, Stock, Lilac, Allium, Ranunculus, Spider Mums, White and green wisteria hung down from above, creating a flower ceiling. An aisle runner of baby’s breath covered the orchard floor.

I knew that a soft transition of color would be key to blending this new trend with a classic table scape design. To create a timeless look, I wanted to incorporate a garden element as well. The design started on the orchard floor, growing up over the table, slowly transitioning from dark green, to light green, to blue, to purple, and finally, to pink. This effect created an ethereal garden look while incorporating the new trend. Wisteria was hung over the table from the tree’s trellis system to enclose the space, giving it a cozy, secret garden feel.
