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!

In the spirit of the upcoming holiday Artistic Blossoms thought we’d share a little red, white, and blue!

Here are some photos from a wine tasting at the Exchange Conference Center in Boston. We were really excited to design for this event. We were given the Garrigue region of France for our inspiration. Using herbs, succulents and blossoms we created an arrangement that we felt best represented the region as well as the theme of the event. Enjoy the photos!!
Of course we always send a designer to every delivery to make sure our pieces are perfect.

We had the good fortune to work on a beautiful wedding at the Fairmont Copley Plaza recently. We received these phenomenal photos from Zev Fisher who was a dream to work with on this event.
This photo was so fantastic we blew it up and it now hangs in the Newbury Street Studio!
We absolutely loved working with Alice and Staff at the Fairmont, they are amazing. Our bride was so well taken care of. She will never forget what a magical day they created for her.
Here is Kelsey with her bridesmaids. These dresses were so unique and really fun to design around.
Part of our design plan included uplighting. We have a talented lighting technician, Mike Salvati. This bride took advantage of our full service design consultation. Mike and I met her at the Fairmont to develop the lighting plan and as you can see he enhanced the columns with a warm hue.
We embellished each centerpiece with crystal drops that hung from the pilsner vases. This wedding was one of our favorites this year. And as everyone knows, great weddings are created by great planners. Our bride Kelsey used Heather Miniccuci from Simply Inviting Weddings. Heather went above and beyond for this bride as she was 8 months pregnant at the time!! That did not stop Heather, she pulled it all together with ease. We just heard she had her twins named Olivia & Tyler. Cheers to Heather for all her recent creations!!

We find that our clients and friends love to come to our Marshfield studio and see where we create our work. We thought that this week we would bring our blog readers into the studio too. Welcome…
Here are three generations of Dolloff/Angley ladies planning out production and delivery for the weekend events. Did you know that Artistic Blossoms is a family run business?
Here is Kelly with her daughter Camille. Camille is great designer whose focus is 3D design. She is a natural fit to design centerpieces but this year she has also created some amazing bouquets.
Here is the our custom designed and climate controlled cooler that keeps everything fresh until we bring it out to deliver.
This is how we transport bouquets to our brides and their attendants. Each bouquet is placed in a vase and secured in these straw filled baskets. It ensures they won’t fall over in delivery and are easy to transport. We think it looks pretty too!!
We love to enhance our designs with jewels, feathers and other elements.
We also love to work with wire and do simple wrapping or embellish a vase with something like these swirls.
The bag you see here on the left goes with each designer as they deliver our arrangements and bouquets. Did you know that we always only send professional designers out on delivery? It is so important that if anything moves in transport we have a designer there to make sure every arrangement is perfect when we leave the event venue. We really do not consider our design job finished until that happens.
This is how we transport all of the boutonnieres and corsages. They come labelled in either small bags or boxes and of course we personally pin every one to make sure it looks perfect and won’t fall to the side.
Here is an arrangement that we are going to be finishing for a ceremony and that is a wrap. Thanks for stopping in. Keep checking back for new designs from the event season~!

Did you know that we have been providing green design services since the 80′s? We also offer options for the conscious consumer such as recycled glass vases and containers. Our design studio is also fully equiped with a composting station. Here is a recent example of how we incorporated our green philosophy into one of our design plans.
What you see here are some milk vases that were a family heirloom. Our bride wanted to incorporate them into a modern design plan. By wire wrapping and using simple blossoms, we were able to blend these antiques into the contemporary ballroom at The Millenium Hotel in Boston.

We absolutely love working at the Boston Public Library. This venue is magnificent with all of its architectural detail. We really enjoyed working with our bride Lucy and admired her unique sense of style. Our favorite part of the design was the phenomenal ceremony location and pieces we created to complement the space.

We recently worked with a bride who loved the color of lemons and wanted to integrate them into her design plan. We loved the mixture of bold colors using navy and white patterned runners, dark wood chaivari chairs and the bright yellow centerpieces. This wedding was at Pinehills Country Club in Plymouth, one of our favorite venues on the South Shore.
