For our bridal show last week, “An Evening of Elegance” at the Taj Boston, we also designed a bouquet that was a little more dramatic and theatrical with cool whimsical elements.

“Daring and Dramatic”

For this bouquet we used red “Rococo” parrot tulips, one of our favorites, with plum ranunculus, and begonia leaves (our new obsession!). Between the multi-colored ‘flames’ on the parrot tulip in yellow, purple, and green and the wild shape of the begonia leaves, the bouquet is so unusual and unexpected. The plum of the ranunculus anchors the design and the wispy feathers deepen the palette and add texture.

Feathers are certainly having a renaissance right now and we couldn’t be happier. They’re such a fun and whimsical addition to bouquets and with their range of colors and textures, it’s hard to chose sometimes!

I like this photo in particular because it shows how the bouquet isn’t entirely symmetrical. A little bit of imbalance and surprise is good in design, if everything was perfectly mirrored from one angle to another, it wouldn’t be nearly as fun to look at!
