Summer at the Farm Kitchen

Posted on: January 16th, 2016 by melanie No Comments

Peachy pink flowers fresh from the garden are what we used for this super sweet Farm Kitchen wedding. The Farm Kitchen has a relaxed country feel with display and working gardens, orchards and a bachelors cabin. For this wedding we chose locally grown flowers and some from our own cutting garden. Blush garden roses, fruit, clematis, cafe dahlias, vines and sage hydrangeas in pale shades are some of the flowers we used in Sarah’s bridal bouquet. We took inspiration from her bouquet and used them for the ceremony aisle and for the reception tables. Sarah’s beautiful dress from the dress theory in Seattle, we love them.

Its January, its cold and grey and there isn’t much going on. But wait, its wedding show season!! They are out there almost every weekend through the spring. Super fun and inspirational, its a chance to meet vendors and get ideas. This Year I will be in the boutique wedding show Weddings in Woodinville, at JM Cellars. We defiantly have a great team again this year for our spanish inspired wedding. The whole winery is set up for a ceremony and reception, wine tasting and little bites are available for sampling. Vintage ambiance supplied the  rental decor, Melody at MG Davis events did the styling and I am suppling the flowers of course. Jennifer Tai will be there if you would like to speak to a photographer and see her work, she is phenomenal! Rustic, elegant, and a little bit spanish come by and see all the wonderful ideas  we came up with.

The Farm Kitchen is another venue you should see if you like the country feel and lots of flowers. Their open house is on February 10, come by and see the farm and my table. Pink or purple, I am still deciding on the flowers.Farm Kitchen Open House Flyer

Summer Reception

Posted on: November 26th, 2012 by melanie No Comments

We showed a lovely summer ceremony the other day, here is the reception. Blush, peach, pink and a bit of lavender made for beautiful wedding flowers at the Fram Kitchen. Burlap table runners were a nice contrast and added texture to the ivory linens. Flowers from the aisle were placed on the tables and we added sweet little arrangements made in bottles. Succulents in rustic tin cans and hobnail votive holders were a great addition to eclectic look. The bride is a German teacher so all the tables were numbered in german. It is alway a great idea to personalize your wedding is someway that is meaningful to you but is also enjoyed by your guests and adds to the decor.

I love the Farm Kitchen. Well I am kind of a country girl, but the relaxed beauty of the farm is so very charming. Photographers always take advantage of the multiple photo ops and Stacey Jacobsen of Love Study Photography is no exception.She took the seriously

amazing photos this summer. My lovely bride is a german teacher and named all her table in german, which took me a minute to understand. We chose pink flowers with touches of lavender, yellow crespedia and succulents. Burlap runners, with standard white table linens and inexpensive chairs can dramatically not enhance the decor. I think this is truly an exception with the overall look very pretty, not to girly and very warm and kitchen, wedding, wedding flowers, melanie benson floral

The other day a bride asked what she could use as place cards, so I looked around the internet and found a few ideas. What do you think? After all the planning that goes into a wedding and all the details and decisions, the escort card takes a backseat during the wedding planning process. Although a Florist isn’t always charged with the creation of such a display at Melanie Benson Floral we like to at least offer inspiration. Below is a photo from a wedding at the Farm Kitchen.

tulips, narcissus, daffodils, and yellow primroses for the seattle wedding show
spring flowers at the seattle wedding show for the farm kitchen

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.
