Lobby Flowers at The Sandpearl by The Bride's Bouquet

We have been fortunate to design the lobby flowers for the Sandpearl on Clearwater Beach since they opened. It is a gorgeous property and the staff is beyond amazing. They are dedicated to customer service and to providing the best to their guests that is available anywhere. I love the classy low key decorating in the hotel- the mix of art , to comfortable chairs to expansive windows that show the beautiful Clearwater Beach. It is so welcoming there you will never want to leave! It is a great place for an event or wedding. So when you book your next special event there, call us to complete the look with flowers.

The Rusty Pelican with Limelight Photography and Flowers By The Bride's Bouquet

We often get the pleasure of working with Limelight Photography and I am always excited to do so. I have done a million weddings at The Rusty Pelican ( well maybe not quite a million!) but enough that sometimes they start to look the same to me. So it was nice to see the freshness to the images taken from a different perspective. Of course Stacy and Nelson were a gorgeous couple and the love that they had for each other shined through. As you can see, everyone had fun and enjoyed the beautiful Tampa day. Thanks go out to Limelight for sharing the pictures with me. It is fun for us to see our flowers in action and especially rewarding to be a part of the couples most memorable moment- their wedding.
To contact Limelight Photography call 813.926.4290

Event last Sunday at Belleair Country Club

Last Sunday, we did a fun reception that was for a Debutante and she wanted her centerpieces to be jazzy to reflect her hot pink and black theme. We suggested our new black pilsner vases and did simple, inexpensive centerpieces that offered a lot of impact. The tall pilsner vase can be done in many colors and can be either fun or elegant. Call us if you like them to discuss all the possibilities.

Wedding today at The Doubletree- N Redington Beach

This week we have a wedding every day except Friday and todays was at the Doubletree- North Redington Beach. The Bride worked with us by email until she arrived in town the day before her wedding. We do a flower preview where the client can see their bridal bouquet and other flowers. This is especially important when we have been working by email so that the bride is ensured to get what she wants. I believe it also gives the bride an extra feeling of calm knowing that she does not have to wonder about her flowers. We are the only florist in the bay area to offer this service and is just one more way we try to make all the details perfect.

Weddings this week at the Rusty Pelican and The Don Cesar

This week as we usher out the old year , we will be delivering wedding flowers to The Rusty Pelican and then Sat Jan 2 at the Don Cesar. I am excited to do both because both brides have made great choices and I can't wait to see how it all comes together. A New Years Eve always sounds romantic and with the backdrop of the Tampa Bay and the lights of the city twinkling over the water, the party just starts to warm up. The DJ that night will be Felix and always knows how to keep the party moving - everyone is guaranteed to have more fun than they have ever had. Saturday at The Don Cesar, I will be working with a family that I have had the privilege to work with all four girls. In their cocktail room, they have planned to set up big screen TVs, so none of the football games are missed. Between the dancing and the games- it will be a wedding to remember and I get to be a part of both! Stay tuned for pictures!

Wedding Flowers at Innisbrook - Palm Harbor

So many of my clients have asked what the ceremony area at Innisbrook looks like set up for a wedding and the answer is it looks fabulous. The backdrop of the lake and the old oak are awesome. We kept the flowers natural with a willow arch and enhanced it with antique green hydrangea, plum mini callas, plum hydrangea and shades of lavender to purple vanda orchids. I love how rich it looks and I especially like how it fits right into the natural greenery. The Bride was radiant and her first look at the groom shows it. The bridesmaids carried hydrangea, mini callas and green cymbidium orchids wrapped in a deep plum ribbon . They really popped against the dresses and the girls loved them.
It was a beautiful wedding ceremony and we are glad we had a small part in it. Congratulations Brooke and Thure.

Tropical flowers at Innisbrook

Tonight we delivered tropical arrangements to Island Pool Clubhouse at Innisbrook for Brooke and Thure's rehearsal dinner. It looked like they might get rained out tonight and then right before we delivered the sun came out and was beautiful . The fun tropical flowers they chose for tonight were perfect poolside but tomorrow the reception in sterling hall will reflect a more elegant look .
Stay posted for more pictures tomorrow.
Congratulations Brooke and Thure- we wish you years of happiness and much love all your life.

Tropical Bouquets for the Hilton Clearwater Beach to Marriott Sand Key

Tropical bouquets come in so many colors and styles. You can choose from cymbidium orchids, bright colored vanda orchids, dendrobium orchids, and mini callas. Although gerber daisys, lilies and roses are not considered tropical , they go great with the tropical type flowers and really add a pop of color. All of these flowers are available to us year round, so no need to worry about choosing something out of season and they are hardy enough to hold up in our Florida heat.
The Bride's Bouquet can design your bridal bouquets and offer suggestions on how to make it your own style. Whether you are getting married at the Clearwater Beach Hilton, Sandpearl, Marriott Sand Key, Tradewinds to the Don Cesar - these flowers would be perfect on the beach!

Wedding flowers at Honeymoon Island State Park

The New pavilion is done at Honeymoon Island State Park and you can now have your reception under a tent or under the pavilion. Both sit right next to the Gulf of Mexico and offer the best views in town. Angela, Kim and Shane are the best there is to work with planning your food and details and so much is offered in their packages. We supply the flowers for the arch packages but we can make it easy for you to select your bridal flowers too. One of the nicest features about having your wedding there is that when the sun goes down, you and your guests are the only ones on the beach when the park closes- complete privacy! No other beach can boast that. If you want to see a complete album of wedding flowers that we have done on the Island, visit our facebook page- The Bride's Bouquet . You will find beach weddings to many other venues in the Tampa Bay area.

Wedding flowers at Mirror Lake Lyceum - St Pete

It has been awhile since I have posted anything at Mirror Lake Lyceum but it is a fabulous place to have a wedding. It is an old church that has been converted to a wedding venue . So a lot of the features of the church - like the stain glass windows and the architectural features are perfect for that! You can bring in your own caterer which also allows you to create a wedding that is not the same as all others. I love that your flowers can be used in the ceremony area and then on the tables, really helps to stretch those dollars in the flower budget.
To see our albums of other venues- visit our facebook page- The Bride's Bouquet . We have pictures there of wedding flowers at Innisbrook, Sandpearl, Don Cesar, Kapok, The Rusty Pelican, Davis Island Garden Club, Eastlake Woodlands Country Club and many more.
We can't wait to talk to you about your wedding flowers. Call us at 727.785.2562.
