Yesterday we got a look at some purple and blue Spring flowers from Sarah Winward of Honey of a Thousand Flowers, one of our talented Select vendors. Today, she shows us another direction Spring brides can go… I confess, I’m such a sucker for pretty pink flowers, especially in soft shades of blush. Photos by Kate Osborne.
From Sarah: Purple and and especially blue tones in flowers are hard to come by. Most of the flowers that are in these tones are very seasonal. If you want these colors in the flowers for your wedding, choose an early spring date. I love the small blooms of flowers that grow in the early spring, they are each so delicate.
By the time February rolls around, many of us are just aching for some color! If you dream of bright, bold, cheerful flowers but you’re tying the knot during late winter (February and March), Sarah Winward of Honey of a Thousand Flowers (a Snippet & Ink Select vendor!) has some inspiration for you. Lovely photos by Kate Osborne.
Says Sarah: “For the bride that just can seem to submit to wintry colors, poppies and citrus fruit are in season in the late winter. They are just the dose of bright that you need in the late winter months.”
The lovely and talented Sarah Winward is back with some stunning January flowers for us – has she convinced you to have a winter wedding yet?! She’s one of our Select vendors, and as soon as you see these flowers you’ll understand why. I just love the neutral tones here, and I can just imagine these flowers in a room full of candlelight… Photos by Leo Patrone.
From Sarah: “I love a neutral color palette in the months after the holidays. This one has some golden hued accents with the copper beech and mocca amaryllis to keep it from feeling too icy. The Nymph amaryllis has a double bloom, so it is full and works great as a focal flower. Anemone are a great seasonal attention grabbing flower, and are wonderful if you trying to tie some black or navy blue into your color palette.”
Before finishing off the year with a round-up of some of my favorite things from 2013, we have a beautiful winter floral arrangement and bridal bouquet from Sarah Winward, with photos by Britt Chudleigh (two of our Select vendors!). Worried there won’t be beautiful flowers available in you’re a winter bride? Fret not and read on for inspiration!
From Sarah: “In the winter we are without many of the outdoor grown flowers, but the floral industry is still busy growing lots of other wonderful stuff for us indoors. Roses, amaryllis, and ranunculus are a few. I think amaryllis are one of the best flowers to use in the early winter months: they look seasonally appropriate, they are large, and they come in an array of colors. Roses are also always around and are wonderful. Peonies make a come-back in the winter and come to us all the way from the Southern hemisphere. Throughout December there are still a variety of seasonal fruits and berries available on the stem, too.”
