I had a request the other day for something vintage. Pastiche is a local antique store and a favorite of mine, they had lots of old silver that was perfect for that vintage look. The prices are amazing if you aren’t going for serious quality, I bought several things for under $20 each. The first photo I had to decide which vintage silver bowl I was going to use. Next I got to chose the flowers. Roses, hellebores, ranunculus, blackberries and o few other blooms were the perfect selection for the vintage look. Unusual containers are part of what we love to do in our flower shop. All ready for delivery for a lucky family.

Kiana Lodge Vintage Flowers

Well maybe not vintage flowers but a vintage car for sure. The bride wanted something a little extra for her Kiana Lodge wedding so she rented this vintage cas complete with a driver. So of course we thought it needed something romanic like a heart shaped wreath on the spare. We used the same flowers for the wreath as we did for her wedding ceremony and reception. Lots of roses and gerbs were requested by the bride and that is what she got. It was really fun to make and all the guests were so surprised.

Today I was at the Seattle Wedding Show at the Seattle convention center setting up flowers for the Farm Kitchen. Their booth reflected the farm and its colors, and of course spring. We used buckets of spring flowers such as tulips, daffodils, primroses and   sunflowers. I know sunflowers are summer but the color was just right. We arranged  them in french flower buckets and placed them under a red farm table. The Farm Kitchen in Poulsbo is a beautiful place to get married.
