Last week was oppressive, wasn’t it?! Well like the postal service ("Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds"), Ideas in Bloom will not be deterred by the elements.
I gave these white beauties a stern pep talk before delivering them to the Colby Hill Inn in Henniker, NH on Saturday. Even the freshest flowers can wilt under the hot summer sun, so we take ever precaution possible to ensure our blooms are picture perfect. In this case, we provided a small spray bottle so the bridal party could mist their bouquets in-between photos. Hydrangea, especially delicate in the heat, can soak up moisture from their petals and will stay perky with the right care.
This romantic rounded bouquet contained Hydrangea, Garden Roses, regular Roses, Lisianthus, and Spray Roses, all in shades of white, ivory, and cream.
The Bridesmaids carried Roses, Lisianthus, Stock, and Spray Roses in the same pallet.
