Royal Wedding Florist Shane Connolly (here's a shock he is a man)



I really liked Kate Middleton's bouquet which was simple small and understated including Myrtle planted from Queen Victoria's bouquet in 1840 and still going strong.  The bouquet also had hyacinth, lily of the valley and sweet william (how appropriate and cutsie). 


Designed by Shane Connolly the official florist to HRM and a man.  What is up with the Paul Mitchells and Shane Connollys snatching all the lime light in lady dominated industries? (sorry for the mini rant)


Lovely bouquet all the same, she placed it on the grave of a WWI soldier rather than tossing it, classy lady.

So thrilled to add 25 of these 10" diameter Silver urn vases to our rental inventory! This design is a demo for an October wedding at Travis Pointe Country Club in Ann Arbor.  The centerpiece includes ivy, seeded eucalyptus, sweet peas, dahlia, roses, lisianthus, dendrobium orchids, ranunculus, and succulents.  It looks so petite in these photos but in real life it is Mammoth I guess I should have included a place setting for scale (next time) ~Pea

Designed for one of the most creative weddings ever!! This couple got married at the Butterfly house in the Detroit Zoo, their guests took a train tour of the zoo before returning to the Inn at St. Johns for their reception.  Wish I had snapped a shot of the cute cupcake table the overall look of the room was retro woodsy very anthropology as one of the caterers pointed out.  The centerpieces were half vintage bottles, and half foam arrangements.  Flowers include, mini green hydrangea, trachillium, sweet pea, craspedia, lisianthus, veronica, and featuring white anemone.

Weekend Wedding Preview SWEET PEAS GALORE!



Very pumped for this weekend's wedding at the botanical gardens and reception at Webbers Inn. Here is a sneek peak and the stunning flowers that came in today from Mayesh our wholesaler in Romulus.  They sent the best looking sweet peas I have ever seen and loads of double tulips.  The seeded eucalyptus i received is practically all seeds (my favorite) and the purple lisianthus must be some awesome hybrid because it has loads of petals!! Let the designing begin :) ~Pea
