Petalena in Print!

Apryl and I were completely psyched when a freelance style editor working on the Boston Globe Sunday Magazine’s  “Weddings” issue (set to release on Sunday, January 14th!) asked to us contribute a bouquet for a style feature!

The article will feature three different bouquets at three different price points, we were asked to do a modest bouquet for $75 – a bit below our normal price range so we did a precious small little posie bouquet seen below:

About the Flowers & Color Palette:
Peach and apricot tones work gorgeously with the silver tones. This kind of color mood is really perfect for January through June wedding especially with all the wonderful flowers are available as the season progresses like amaryllis in winter, fragrant sweet peas in late winter through spring, and the classic spring flowers – tulips and narcissus.

Our bouquet features two of our favorite flowers – ranunculas (the gorgeous petal-y flower that looks like a more luxurious version of a rose) and peach parrot tulips. Apryl and I both stricken a modern-day version of  ‘Tulip Mania” so thank goodness we don’t live in Holland back in the 1600s!

The Tulip by Anna Pavord

The Tulip by Anna Pavord

If you’re struck by a love of tulips too, check out the wonderful writer Anna Pavord. She wrote a fantastic book back in 2000 The Tulip, which as her publisher says “is not a garden book” but the story of how the tulip arrived in Turkey and made its way to Western Europe. A bit botanical history, a bit cultural voyage, it’s a fascinating read.
