Clearwater Beach Weddings and Bridal Flowers

Spring is here and after a cold dreary winter, I am seeing lots of brides that are choosing bright colors for their weddings. I have to admit that I am enjoying the colors and they do convey a spirit of Spring and new beginnings. For centerpieces, I love mixing styles and shapes to express the bride's personality and I feel it offers more variety than doing the same arrangement on every table. Lanterns with flowers and flowers under glass are all fun ways to spice up your tables and make conversation pieces. We are inspired by your ideas and can help you bring it all together . Please call us at 727.785.2562 for a free design consultation.

Wedding Flowers at Nova 535

Our first wedding at Nova 535 located in St Petersburg, Florida was for Candace and Travis. She was the perfect bride to work with and she wanted her wedding flowers to reflect her fun personality. They chose the Nova because they wanted their reception to be more of a party with celebrating than the traditional dances and stuff. she even added feathers into her centerpieces to complete her idea. Candace- I will miss you calling me to talk about the details of your wedding but I am so happy for you and Travis.

Heritage Spring Country Club in Trinity with Wedding Flowers

Everyone will ask me what I think about tall and low centerpieces together and I always respond- Great! I believe it makes the room look more interesting and it also helps with your budget. The pictures here show where we did a combination of tall and low centerpieces for a wedding at Heritage Springs Country Club in Trinity. The church ceremony was at Palm Harbor Methodist Church and we had done the bride's brothers wedding several years ago. I love working with the siblings of past clients because I always enjoy seeing them again. It is fun to catch up with them and I am honored that they choose to come back to us. Jamie and Joe were so sweet, you could tell they were perfectly matched. Congratulations and thank you!

The Bride's Bouquet and Crate and Barrel in Tampa

Last May , I was anxiously awaiting the opening of Crate and Barrel at International Mall in Tampa. It is one of my favorite stores to shop at . I love all the simple cool designs and all the fresh new fabrics that they have. I always recommend them to my brides for their bridal registry and for vases for their wedding. Simple flowers look best when done in groupings with candles and they are the perfect centerpiece at a wedding .
We recently had an opportunity to partner with the store as they promoted their bridal registry this past February. The pictures from the Sunday promotions and the note below is from the Jaclyn Grinnell of Crate and Barrel. Thank you for the opportunity to work with you!!

Hello Debbie...
Thank you so much for providing the flowers for our February Wedding Party events. We were pleased to include them as part of our displays and many of the brides commented on how lovely the arrangements were. I have attached a few pictures for your use. Thanks again and we hope to work with you again in the future.
Thank you,

Eastlake Woodlands Country Club Wedding Flowers

Our wedding tonight was at East Lake Woodlands Country Club in Oldsmar, Florida but what made this wedding so special was Rhea. I loved the bride and found her warm, soft personality a dream to work with . Her Mother was equally charming and witty and I wish it could have gone on forever. My best wishes for many years of happiness to Rhea and John - may your life be blessed. With much love- Debbie at The Bride's Bouquet

LED Lighting for Flower Centerpieces for Your Wedding

Tall centerpieces that are lighted with LED lights are all the rage. They offer a romantic setting that other centerpieces just can not offer . Any room that has tall ceilings - such as the Marriott Waterside- Tampa, the Sandpearl, or as shown here at the Rusty Pelican- Tampa and Kapok in Clearwater are the perfect choice.

Flower centerpieces for Innisbrook Resort

Last week we had a group at Innisbrook that wanted to use their flowers for a few days for their different events and we suggested Yellow lilies, orange roses and white callas in a glass cylinder vase. As you can tell from the pictures the yellow lilies are just starting to open and the roses would just become more beautiful over several days. We almost always suggest a glass vase for groups that want their flowers to last because it is the lack of water that kills the flowers . By putting them in a container with lots of water, they were guaranteed longevity. Yellow is a very popular color this year and pairing it with orange gives it a fresh look that is perfect for a group of men as well as ladies. Contact us anytime you need flowers for your corporate event. 727.785.2562. We deliver to Innisbrook, Sandpearl, Saddlebrook, Marriott Waterside , Safety Harbor Spa and many other locations in the Tampa Bay Area.
