Having a ball with Bouts!

These days weddings are all about standing out, going against the grain, and pushing the envelope. One way to keep with tradition while standing out from the crowd of wedding guests is a lively Boutonniere. The perfect finishing touch to the quintessential wedding suite is a stunning poise pinned perfectly to your lapel. Bridal parties these days are getting a treat with a wide verity of funky and fun boutonniere’s rather than our parents boring old spray rose and babies breath. Below are some of our favorite out of the box bout beauties.

Nat bout

If your more into a natural look with a bit more of a masculine feel than dessert flowers are probably the bout for you. Succulents and cactus are some of the bests ways to create this look with a fun textured style.

Non-traditional bouquets

As you know we have a not so secret obsession with all things flowers, one of our favorite floral elements is the bridal bouquet and how it finishes off any brides ensemble.  Although we are completely in love with bouquets that are made up of your  peonies, dahlia’s, and roses. We also love when brides go for a non-traditional bouquet, just like some of these bouquets we have included with some unexpected flower choices…

What do you think of non-traditional bouquets? Do you have any unique flowers you want to include in your bouquet?

The Real Secret Garden

We thought we would share some eye candy with all of you today that truly is a jaw dropper! When we first came across these stunning pictures we thought that they were paintings, rather than photographers of a real garden. We are still in complete awe of this picturesque garden known as the wisteria tunnel at the Kawachi Fuji Gardens, located in Kitakyushu, Japan. Can’t you just imagine the most breath taking wedding or dinner party taking place under this canopy of Wisteria
