Floral Love: Tulips

Some may say all of one thing is boring, but when it comes to tulips that simply doesn’t apply. This is the third up in a series of floral posts, after roses and peonies. Below you’re going to see many: a. gorgeous colors b. fabulous ideas (wouldn’t the tulip stationery make for a fabulous bridal shower gift?) c. Pinterest-worthy images. Some facts about the flower: Ottoman Empire: where commercial cultivation began. Tulip festivals are held around the world, and notably in Michigan, Iowa and Washington in the United States. Tulips are in the same family as lilies. 3,000: estimated varieties. The Netherlands: so-called tulip capital of the world. Enjoy the inspiration!     Photo Credits: 1 Cupcakes and Cashmere 2 Tara Leigh Photography / Via *** 3 Via *** 4 Bouquet by Beautiful Blooms / Laura Novak Photography / Via *** 5 Via *** 6 Connie Cupcake. 7 Yellow Door […]

Floral Love: Roses

Flowers – we love them! To kick off a series of floral-focused posts, we give you a collection of rose images. From bouquets and centerpieces to out-of-this-world arrangements and cupcakes, we hope to have rose inspiration for your wedding or spring soiree covered. Now the fun facts rundown of America’s favorite flower: 100: number of species of roses. 1,000: age of the oldest rose in the world, located in Germany. 60: % of US-grown roses that are grown in California The name rose comes from French, itself from Latin rosa. A rose’s blooms are edible. Rose hips (the fruits of the rose plant) contain more Vitamin C than any other fruit or vegetable. Again, enjoy the images!     Photography/Designer Credits: 1 Samantha Erin Photography / Rachel A.

Black, White & Chic All Over

What is it that makes black and white combined so incredibly enticing? To begin, the combo is chic, elegant and clean; and no, that doesn’t mean simple or boring. The real beauty is brought out in playing with textures, patterns and shapes. Too, add the slightest touch of gold, red or any color and it’s a whole new ballgame. Here’s a little taste of the black and white creations we love, such as a luscious white gown with black sash (timeless), a black and white cake with exquisite details (genius) and striped linens devoid of color (bold, yet classic when slightly subdued by flowers). Enjoy!     Image Credits: 1 “Camellia” dress by Rivini / 2 & 3 shoes by Christian Louboutin / 4 “Diamond” gown by Ines Di Santo, featured in a shoot by Floral Werx 5 bouquet w/ black lace via The Cinderella Project / 6 flower girl dress by Us Angels and available at Lovella / 7 Dessert display by La Cupcakerie / 8 & 9 Rivini dress and gown 10 Davina+Daniel […]
