Hydrangeas and roses are the fashionHydrangia and Rose arch

for this summers wedding scene, and we are only too happy to oblige.

Way back in July we did a fairytale wedding in our garden here, at Ferns and Flowers, Tea house and Bistro.

The arch had a mix of garden style flowers and features roses, hydrangeas and ribbons.

A bubble machine added  hundreds of bubbles to the I’do’s!

The the 45 guest had dinner served in the farm house.

Harvest Wedding

October 25, 2008

Just recently we completed a wedding for a woman in Warwick.  She wanted to do a fall themed wedding, with a very light and airy feeling.  We used a multitude of nuts and fruit, combined with ribbon, autumn leaves, orchids, pumpkins and gerbera daisies.

The nuts and fruit have been touched with some gold paint and glitter

Baby Shower

September 26, 2008

We recently did a baby shower that was held in the adjacent restaurant.  The organizer wanted colourful bouquets, with a summery feel and we were only too happy to oblige.  The table centerpieces were created using flowers such as daisies, roses, rose hips, and small sunflowers.  They were put in glass cube vases wrapped with ribbon and finally “garnished” with butterflies.

There were a total of four centerpieces

This arrangement was created using Hydrangea, roses, cabbage, miniature cymbeduim orchid, grasses, and several other plants able to be grown in gardens around RI.  It was placed in the recent favourite pea-pod vase.

Garden in a Peapod

September 6, 2008

Hello folks, sorry for the lack of updates… school is starting up again and professors usually frown upon my furiously typing in class…

Anyways, this arrangement is for a real gardener and plant lover.  We used a ceramic pea pod container and filled it with a large variety of plants, such as Stars of Bethlehem, Tritoma, Lavender Roses, Tuber Roses, Cabbage, Gerbera, Adriatic Lilies, Rose Hips, Pink Spray Roses, and Rosemary.

Here we have another arrangement recieved through FTD.  At our online store (www.fernsandflowers.com) customers can order pre-designed arrangements and we replicate and improve upon them.  Of course, sometimes these orders can be tough (Its impossible to have every single flower than can appear in the FTD networks arrangements on hand all the time), but we never cease to try to please.

Tropical Wedding Shower

August 23, 2008

The second arrangement

Tropical Centerpiece

For this series of arrangements, a particularly artistic client wanted colourful and summery (but not too crazy) table arrangements. We opted to go with oranges and purples to give the shower a tropical and exotic feeling.  There were going to be eight tables at the shower and we needed to keep the arrangements short enough so that guests could see each other over them.  We used roses, tritoma, pin cushion, protea, birds of paradise, orchids, assorted eucalyptus, and other tropical plants such that each arrangement looked different.  For the pictures below I picked out two of my favorite arrangements out of the eight.

As you can see, we used a 5x5x5 clear glass cube vase

For those of you who love the look of door pieces, wether it be christmas wreathes, decorative scarecrows, or whatever else you might hang there, I bring you this Butterfly door centerpiece.  It is one of my particular favorites so far just because of its simplicity.

The centerpiece is approximatley 3ft by 2ft
