Flower Garlands

Garlands are a fun and easy way to enhance any special occasion. It’s very common to use roses, carnations, mums or some variety of orchids.
Just recently, a bride requested us to do flower garlands for her wedding. Her colors were orange, white and silver and wanted a modern yet beautiful design. We were excited to make this happen for her!

The flower we selected was an Asiatic lily for its deep orange hue and unique bloom. We took the orange lily and turned it upside down and strung it in random patterns and added crystal jewels to enhance the garlands.

This event took place aboard the Destiny Cruise Ship out of Newport Beach California. We dangled the garlands along a glass window that spanned 10 feet high and 20 feet wide. It was a picture perfect moment when the couple said their I Do’s. We wanted to tie the garlands unique style to the aisle treatments and thus, designed mini-versions of the alter garlands and attached them to the aisle chairs.

Flower garlands can be a beautiful accent to any occasion!
