Orchard Picnic Floral Design Workshop

 Velours Designs

This May I held my very first floral design workshop and I had a wonderful time doing it. There is nothing I love more than seeing individuals inspired to create and learn. 

Floral Design Workshop

I have always loved going above and beyond when it comes to a party (if i can afford it.) And when the above and beyond has the potential to make someone feel special, it is even better. I created a lovely Hors d'oevres bar set up. With different meats and cheeses, salads, fruit and featured some Moseley Family Cellars Wine.

I set up a display table for each attendee to set their arrangement on. That way everyone could see how much their arrangements add when throwing a party or an event. Shout out to Rustic Charm Rentals for lending me the beautiful Safari Chairs.

The arrangement lesson I went with was a very basic design called the Horizontal Arrangement. It was really fun to see everyone understand and execute the instructions I had drawn out for them. Be sure to watch the video below if you are interested in creating this look.

Step by step instructions

Horizontal Arrangement 

Step 1: Create Your Horizon - a long structural branch or flower on opposite ends of the arrangement.

Step 2: Add Your Skeleton - forming the overall shape, don't add so much that you no longer have room for flowers

Step 3: Add Your Focal Flowers - Larger flowers that capture the attention and stand out by themselves.

Step 4: Add Fillers - light airy flowers that take up a bit of space without adding weight to the arrangement. This is a moment that you can add some textures. 

Check out the following video to see one built.

Thank you Holly Kiker Photography for providing such beautiful photos!

Sacramento River Wedding | Velours Designs

Norcal Floral Designer | Redding, Ca

Michael and Jenn Behnke | June 17, 2017

Matthew Lim Photography

Micheal and Jenn's stunning wedding took place alongside the Sacramento River. Mid June days in Redding CA can reach upward of 110 fahrenheit, so being right on the river was the best place to be.  We decorated the beautifully placed arch very abundantly with white, blush and purple flowers. The result was breath taking! I think the flower that made this arch was the delicate, green, hanging amoranthus.

Matthew Lim Photography did an outstanding job in photographing this gorgeous day (check out his site HERE) I wish I had been more on top of the vendor list, but alas... I was not and cannot remember for the life of me who was involved. So if you were there as a vendor, shoot me an email and let me know so I can link your business.

Rustic Bohemian Wedding

Monteith Wedding | October 8, 2017

Let me tell you something... the bohemian trend is probably one of the funnest to come into existence as a designer because they are all so unique. The Bohemian style pulls from cultures all around the world so the end result is a beautiful mix of textures, colors, scents and materials. 

Bohemian Wedding Boutonnieres

Kyle and Victoria were married last October at TBS Ranch in Palo Cedro, California. The arrangements were in a traditional fall color palette, with a mix of florals and greens that had unique character and texture. My personal favorites to use in this design were the magnolia foliage with its beautiful, burnt sienna backsides. 

Also... take note of the incredible macrame that the bride made herself to hang on the arch. Everything about this rustic bohemian wedding turned out so perfect. The details were spot on, down to the gold brims of the champagne flutes! LOVE!
