Wedding style: table greenery


A popular trend this year has been using cut table greenery and accents in lieu of or in addition to table centerpieces. Shown here are two examples of table greenery designed with light floral accents. Hardy greenery such as silver dollar eucalyptus, seeded eucalyptus, and italian ruscus work well either alone or in combination with other mixed greens. Considering cut table greenery or garland for your event? Speak with one of our bridal consultants to learn more about your table options.

Ready for Spring?


Spring is officially less than one month away, and we can't wait. After a unusually cold and icy winter here in Portland, the first signs of spring are a welcome diversion from the current dreary gray sky. Early spring favorites that have already arrived are: ranunculus, tulips, hyacinths, and anemones. Additionally, blooming branches such as forsythia, quince, cherry and prunus are available as well. We're saying thanks to all these lovelies, for brighting our day. Perhaps they can brighten yours as well...
