Ombre Flower Arrangement How-To

Flower Guide

I adore anything ombre, so when Pollen Floral Design came to us with this stunning ombre flower arrangement, I got just a tad excited! These pretty pink florals and lush greens were all captured beautifully by the talented Cambria Grace Photography and I’m happy to share them with you.

From the florist, Pollen Floral Design: In order to create this ombre look, we start by foraging some local greens. If you don’t have a yard with readily available foliage, look for greens growing on the side of the road, over a fence, or ask your neighbor with the green thumb.

Once all the elements are gathered, begin designing your arrangement with your greens. You want to create a full, lush look that will be the basic structure for you design.

Then we start creating the color gradient by placing the white blooms on the right side of the arrangement. Place your larger flowers first (peonies and garden roses). Then fill in any remaining holes with a smaller white flower (mock orange, dahlias or other small bloom).

Continue building your color gradient by adding more and more pink as you build to the left side of the arrangement. Again, start by adding your larger roses and peonies first, then add in the smaller scabiosa flowers and buds for additional texture and depth.

If you prefer to make an ombre bouquet, follow the same steps, but hold the stems in your hand as you design and tie them off with a beautiful ribbon!

Ombre Austin Wedding

Garden Weddings

Haleigh and Collin’s wedding takes one of our favorite trends, ombre, and brings it to a whole new level. With the professional expertise of Sweet Sunday Events and photos by Al Gawlik, no detail went overlooked, from the incredible hanging paper centerpieces to the stunning ceremony altar installation. Keep an eye out for one seriously spiffy ring bearer!

From Sweet Sunday Events: What can one do with paper and a sewing machine? Ohhhh, let me count the ways! Old books turned into paper strands bunched and stacked, some were also sewn together to create new and fun textures. All together the old books created a lovely and dramatic centerpiece hanged impeccably from the center chandelier. Classic cardstock was added as a pop of color mixed in the book strands and pink ombre bunting draped to the outside chandeliers just perfectly above the guest tables during the reception. Coffee filters were dyed and turned into ombre flowers at the hand crafted ceremony arch and cake backdrop.

OH!, let’s not forget the gorgeous tabletops. Painter’s gauze was ombre dyed and gathered in the center of the tables. Gorgeous milk glass vases were painted gold and held white hydrangea, beautiful garden roses, ranunculus, fever few and fern. Haleigh {our super sweet bride} collected over a hundred mismatched vintage napkins, painted mini clothes pins that just pushed the level of sweet overboard. Seriously, between us {Sweet Sunday Events} and the bride, not one detail was overlooked. It was clear the guests were incredibly thrilled with the soiree as they danced the night away and ended the night with a ribbon send off for Haleigh and Collin with a Tiff’s Treat in hand!

Purple Ombre Wedding Ideas

Wedding Design

Much like us, photographer Stephanie Yonce has just a little addiction to Pinterest. Letting the site fuel her creative spirit, Stephanie along with Honey of Honeydew Events decided to take the inspiration of ombre design and let it translate into a seriously stunning styled wedding shoot with lots of fun handmade projects and a sweet surprise for the bride! From watercolor to a gorgeous ring, begin feasting your eyes now:

The original inspiration for this shoot came from Stephanie Yonce Photography‘s not-so-secret addiction to Pinterest. As ombre details began popping up all over her boards, she came to the realization that it was time to bring this trend to life with the help of Event Planner & Stylist Honeylyn, as well as a team of Virginia wedding professionals. The hope was for a bright, spring time feel with a color palette that pays homage in part to the Pantone colors for 2012.

DIY details included the retro straw and ruffle wreaths, hand painted chargers, the peach yarn covered letters and the wood shim mirror. The White Pedestals were a combination of chunky candle sticks and miniature plates discovered at a local Goodwill while the Ombre socks (based on a tutorial from SheBlogs.com) proved to be a fun challenge for Honey and Stephanie. Stephanie and Honey were both also excited to join forces with local upcycled furniture store Thrill of the Hunt, which provided the table, upholstered chairs and white dresser. The winner for “best find” for the shoot was the Purple Ombre glasses, which were discovered at a local thrift store.

Within the shoot came a fun love story between the models- Russ and Jenny, who married at this location more than five years ago. Due to unforeseen complications with their own wedding photography, they were left with almost no images of their Big Day. With that, they decided to take this opportunity to stage a “First Look” for the fun of it. Russ approached Stephanie prior to the shoot and asked if he could surprise Jenny during the First Look with her Christmas present- a new, sparkly anniversary band. The sweet moment was captured by Stephanie and the couple lived happily ever after… again!
