Pink is one of the most romantic colors to be found. That pale blush color has such an innocence and newness to it that makes it utterly infatuating even if you’re not a ‘pink person.’

“Pretty in Pink”

For this bouquet, rather than just doing all pink flowers, we paired blush ranunculus, cymbidum orchids, and astilbe with brown/maroon ‘monkey tails’ and pear tree leaves that really heighten the pale beauty of the pink in a way we wouldn’t see without these additions. The ribbons of hand-dyed silk also lend a tonal elegance to the bouquet, nothing is ‘matchy-matchy’ but it is harmonious.

At the “Evening of Elegance” bridal show, models wore wedding gowns and walked amongst the guests. I gave this model the “Pretty in Pink” bouquet and she ended up holding it all night! It really did look great with the romantic design of the dress:
