Katie & Dave - Festive Fall Flowers

We had a wonderful time creating fabulous fall arrangements for Katie and Dave at Columbia Station. No job was too big for Katie - who carved out tons of small pumpkins for candles and ran around collecting so many of the fun elements that we used. I couldn't have done it without her. And the results were worth it!

Katie's bouquet was made up of Circus roses and two types of mini gerber daisies and Circus roses plus bits of preserved, brown eucalyptus. Dave's boutonniere matched one of the gerbers in her bouquet.

Plaid wrapped bouquets of hypericum berries and Circus roses for the wedding party. Groomsmen wore bouts of roses and fall leaves.

Possibly the cutest flower girl basket ever. I found these "pumpkins" at a buying show and they were perfect.

Heart shaped ring bearer box with "rings" in the center. Just adorable!

Pew decorations of Circus roses and bows.

Hard to believe that Anne's pictures could be even worse than mine but here it is. The containers are made of birch angel hair.

Reflexed Circus roses sat on red acrylics in bowls on cocktail tables.

We filled a basket belonging to Katie's grandmother with fall flowers flanked by two of her candlestick holders as a memorial. What a lovely idea Katie.

A vase containing layers of dried beans and filled with branches, dried eucalyptus, red rover mums, and craspedia sat on the placecard table.

We decorated the head table with vases for bouquets, pumpkins, and lots of candles and leaves.

We designed three different centerpieces for Katie's tables and incorporated pumpkins into each one. We found some great brown metal containers that we filled with an array of fall flowers and sprigs of fall pumpkins. The second centepiece of fall flowers sat atop a bowl of small pumpkins. And for the third, we used tall branches from which we hung LED lights and silk leaves. Katie carved out the pumpkins for the surrounding votives. Good job Katie!
