effortless blooms.

So sorry for the delay between posts this past week! I'm planning an upcoming wedding for a wonderful couple that's swiftly approaching!  That being said, I felt inspired to write this post as I am doing their flowers in addition to the regular event planning. Having a farm wedding, the bride wanted a laid-back, yet chic look, so we chose fresh whites, with touches of yellow and green in vintage blue mason jars.  This look exudes a casual, natural feel making it easy to accomplish [just remember, the less fussy, the better!]. 

I'm also a huge fan of doing groupings - i.e. reserving each vase for only one type of flower and then grouping the vases together.  This look can have a modern feel when the flowers are contained in contemporary square vases; or a more vintage, yet still clean look when used in antique vases, mixed milk glass, assorted glass bottles, or mason jars.  Mixing different size vases with varying heights is a great way to add interest to a table. Try placing the varying vessels down the middle of a long table or grouping close together in the center of a standard round. Here are a few images for inspiration...

Pretty pastels in glass mason jars for an casul, chic look.
