Brooklyn Based Wedding Crashers event 2010

This collection is was inspired by the winter cold and recent snow. I wanted to mix traditional flowers like tibet roses babies breath and white hydrangea with a pop of teal blue to give a vintage flare. Teal blue flowers are difficult to pin down, so, instead I used the silk skeleton key leaves for the accent. When I think of vintage inspired looks, I think of sparkles. The bridal bouquet has little stephanotis flowers with crystal in the center and the handle was wrapped in a organza and sequence hand sewn fabric.

The tall center piece was my favorite to make. It sat in my living room slowly growing into a subtly shimmering, earthy old world style arrangement. The curly willows have wire wrapped resin crystals climbing up the branches and some glued to the tips of the tallest ones. There are both larger crystal chandelier drops and tea lights dripping from the arrangement. The base is made up of a ring of spray roses, white ranunculous, babies breath, and curly willow tips shooting out from the base.
