What Makes Our Team Special

July 22nd, 2014

During wedding season, every weekend our team is delivering incredible service and design to our clients. We are all fortunate at Artistic Blossoms to truly love what we do and we have fun doing it. We dance while we design, listen to good music, chat about our summers, and just down-right love working with each other.

Along with flowers many of us have other passions and hobbies. Patrick owns his own massage and wellness center, Kelly is an artist and glassblower, Camille is an avid sportsfan, Erin works with animals, and Victoria is an aspiring installation artist. Our variety of skills and interests meld together to create a cohesive whole, channeling all of our passions through the flowers. We never know which skill we might need to use next in an industry that is ever-evolving and bringing fresh challenges.

A prime example of this, is our amazing wedding this past weekend at the Boston Public Library. After working for months on a specialized design plan, pre-ordering all of the glassware and flowers, two days before the wedding the glassware failed to ship-in after being continually backordered. There was nothing to do except move forward with our design plan, so using her formal art experience Victoria hand gilded and painted new glass containers for this wedding. Looking identical to what we had pre-ordered, the arrangements looked amazing and the event went off without a hitch.

Whether we have to hand paint your vase-ware, custom build a chuppah, or personally select each blossom, Artistic Blossoms is committed to seeing your vision through with professionalism, skill, and whole lot of passion!

Elements of Building a Perfect Bouquet: Texture

July 10th, 2014

There are many elements that come into play when designing a perfect bouquet for your wedding. Color, scale, seasonality, and texture are some of the factors our designers will consider. When it comes to texture, mixing and layering  blossoms creates depth and acts as a visual standpoint. As an accessory to the bride and her bridal party, the bouquet needs to compliment your wedding-day look. An ornate wedding gown might pair best with  less textural blossoms,while a more simple, streamlined design might just need that lush pop varying flowers can bring. These such details are what we at Artistic Blossoms believe make each wedding unique and are what we carefully consider when designing your wedding.

 

See how these bouquets harness  natural textures to create a signature look…!

Tying the ‘Naut’ – Artistic Blossoms Cape Cod

June 24th, 2014

Unique nautical touches for a summer wedding in Cape Cod, MA.

Navy & white, rope details, and tender beach grasses make this June wedding at the Lighthouse Inn in Dennis, MA one for the books. For the girls’ bouquets, Kelly married a chic, contemporary style with a classic New England air. White orchids took center stage, emerging out of tightly looped sisal rope and beach grass. A simple handheld of white orchids was elegant with the bride’s textural gown.
For the reception, navy table runners highlighted variegated white centerpieces with a mix of calla lillies, mums, cymbidium orchids, and anthurium.
Simply stunning!

New England Weddings

June 4th, 2013

Top 5 Elements of a Classic New England Wedding

New England is known for its sandy shores, preppy persona, inaudible “R’s,” and things like ‘lobstah’ and ‘chowdah.’ So how do brides incorporate the beloved New England charm in their wedding day? Here is a short list of the top 5 elements we find in weddings today that scream ‘hello New England!’

1. Seashells

Suzy not only sells seashells by the seashore, she also scatters then around tables, ties them on vases, & uses them for boutonnieres. Well I guess it’s not only Suzy, many New England brides incorporate seashells and starfish into their nuptials. As a majority of New England borders the sea, seashells are an obvious local touch that we think will never go out of vogue. They are a natural element that can be utilized in a variety of ways as well as showcase the natural beauty of the sea.

         

2. Navy

Whether its navy bridesmaids dresses, bow ties, shoes, or ribbon navy is a popular color for the classic New England wedding. Is it the frigid Atlantic that inspires us? Or the color of our lips after a nice long dip in its rippling waters? Nevertheless this majestic color is a sure wedding winner! Whether it’s navy & pink, navy & green, navy & red, navy & yellow, navy & white, ohh the list could go on..navy it is!

        

3. Hydrangea

Drive down any road on any day during the summer and you will be sure to see the big blue clusters of these quintessential New England flowers outside of every house & cottage along the way. From the yard to the bouquet and table, hydrangeas stir up summer dreams of Cape Cod cookouts and classic summer parties. Hydrangeas have indefinite possibility; casual or luxuriously chic. They are a beautiful flower and textural touch to any wedding.

      

4. Beach

Just like seashells, beach weddings and photo sessions take advantage of our scenic New England landscape. What’s a summer wedding without the sand beneath your toes, the romantic murmur of crashing waves, and the orange flecks of a distant sunset?.. Oh, hate the sticky sand in your shoes and seagulls crying through your vows? New Englanders do it best by bringing the beach to their wedding. Simple touches like sand filled vases & beach grass florals are beachy keen while remaining beachy clean.

  

5. Monograms

Monograms are a great way to personalize your wedding day. Boast your new initials on the wedding cake, favors, and surrounding decor. They are a preppy touch that can still exude your personal style. Monograms come in a variety of designs whether they be traditional, circular, whimsical, or floral. They exemplify the new and exciting union of the bride and groom!

A Party They Won’t Forget!

May 2nd, 2013

Party People! Calling all partyyy people!

So I know after your big shindig last year guests wouldn’t stop talking about the signature cocktails, the amazing music, and the food ohhh those hors devours were just sublime! But, I need to ask… what about the flowers?!

Yes, the flowers may seem like just a detail but they are an important detail just like your signature mochatinis and that band you flew in from NYC. Okay, maybe my dream of flying in bands is a little excessive… nevertheless flowers are the cohesive element to any event large or small. Whether its the intimate cluster of blossoms on the dining table or an extravagant couture tablescape, guests will be sure to notice. Flowers add aesthetic to the party environment; lush and natural.

    

      

 

Forget favors, flowers can be used twofold as a focal point for the party as well as a parting gift for your guests. A beautiful centerpiece that they can take home to their table will keep the memories of your successful bash fresh on their minds. So get on your party planning shoes, round up some custom details, and don’t forget to call Artistic Blossoms Floral Design Studio!

      

A Rustic Succulent Wedding- 9.8.2012

October 29th, 2012

A fall day. Sweet love. Wildflowers.

A beautiful equation for nuptials, no?  This September wedding at the Red Lion Inn in Cohasset was just that, beautiful. Scratch that, it was simply gorgeous; a Thistles-bursting-with-blue and cattails-blowing-in-the-wind type of gorgeous.

The flowers were a perfect compliment to the rustic Red Lion Inn in Cohasset. Warmly exposed barn beams were accentuated by cool earthy tones in the flowers, electrified with hints of fuchsia. The bouquets had a wild, natural feel that played with color and texture.

With the deep greens, mustardy yellows, hushed pink, and peacock blue my eyes are in color heaven. The flowers hint to a mossy, fern covered forest, the sun trickling down through fragmented leaves. Ohh how this wedding gets me in a fall kind of mood. Just a woodland dream! –A mix between romance and mother nature.
