Pretty Painted Vases for Your Colorado Wedding Reception

Clustering a number of small vases or vessels together is a popular centerpiece idea right now. I’ve worked with clients to create clusters set upon slices of wood, napkins, table runners and in all colors, shapes and sizes. One of the things that I think is most important when considering clusters of vases or bottles is if there’s a need for something to sit underneath them to “ground” them. Sometimes it’s appropriate and, at others, more of a visual distraction.

These painted bottles provide a self-enclosed visual groundness in an uber-pretty way! What do you think, like them too?

A Basket Full O’ Love for Your Wedding Centerpieces

It’s no secret that I love flowers. However, I think non-floral centerpieces can be a lot of fun. This time of year, as the peaches and fresh tomatoes arrive each week in our farm share box, these pretties catch my eye!

One of these things is not like the other: The Case for Using the Same Flower Throughout Your Wedding

I received an email the other day from an excited bride. She was curious about if there are times when it’s not appropriate or just flat out won’t look good to use one flower throughout the wedding, in bouquets and ceremony decor and centerpieces and elsewhere.

It’s personal taste, but I think there are times when the only way to use a flower is alone and by itself. Baby’s breath is one such flower. When mixed with any others it harkens to the luckily long lost look of a dozen roses surrounded by it. But, when it’s clustered by itself, it’s fresh, modern, airy and uniquely feminely without being flirty or frilly.

Gerbera Daises also seem to look best when they’re used by themselves and clustered together in bouquets or topiary-like centerpieces.

In general, trust your florist or Wedding Designer’s advice on whether to mix and match your favorite bloom. And, as always, if you need some help, please get in touch. Talia Events offers a range of Wedding Design options.

Lightbulb Vases: A bright idea

For an unexpected, funky twist on traditional table floral arrangements, think about putting your flowers in an unconventional vase. We love this light bulb vase from GroCycle on Etsy. Its simple, short design holds just a handful of flowers—perfect for keeping a table arrangement clean and modern. We think it would be especially fitting for couples who want a ‘green’ wedding, because the artist reuses functioning light bulbs to create her work.

Cloth Floral Garlands for Your Wedding

We’ve seen lots of garlands lately. There are ones that say something–I do to the couple’s names to sweet sayings related to love, dessert, chocolate and any other range of favorite things.

I am working on a new take on garlands for a client and starting searching the world of garland. I found some really fun, interesting and new takes on garlands, all in florals. From peonies to poppies, these are fun to imagine used or re-invented for your Colorado wedding!

Wreaths for Your Wedding

You might remember the small wreaths of different herbs and flowers the flower girls in our wedding carried. For some reason, I’ve always loved wreaths. Not sure if it’s the warm, fuzzy feeling of walking up to a door with one hanging on it–it just feels like a friendly place. Whatever the case, wreaths will add a fun touch to your Colorado wedding, no matter the season.

Here’s some beautiful, unique, interesting ideas:
