Monochromatic Bride Flower Guide

Flower Guide

Photos by:

We’re super excited to share today’s shoot with you, put together by the wonderful Amy Nicole Photography and Violet Floral Design. This duo dreamed up a few different bridesmaid looks in monochrome palettes — a pink, a purple, and a green — with makeup, hair, and flowers to complement each one. While these are great ideas for bridesmaids, we also love that they’d work perfectly for a bride who’s open to some fun color for her own wedding look!

From the photographer, Amy Nicole Photography: Tricia Egan of Violet Floral Design and I envisioned a monochromatic shoot with three different color families to inspire some different bridesmaid looks + styles + approaches. We chose the color families Green shades, Purple shades and Peach/Pink shades and then selected a bridesmaid dress, hair and makeup looks, fresh florals, and hand painted canvas backgrounds (by us!) that all kept within each color family. Each model has a different style; Boho, Preppy and Vintage. See below for the details from each color.

Our Preppy Peach bridesmaid wore a Posy by Kirribilla gown in the style “Willa.” Her hair was done in a classic chic french twist with a fresh peony garnish, she wore Stella and Dot jewels, and she had fizzy peach cheeks, bright eye color and a light coral lip.

Valentine’s Day Flower Guide

Flower Guide

Photos by:

Angie Cao

Kiana of Tulipina, a boutique floral design studio in San Francisco, is sharing how to make floral arrangements just in time for Valentine’s Day. Using a variety of pink blooms and textures, Kiana incorporated unique vases and vintage containers she already owned for an eclectic mismatched table look. We love the flower arrangement with dates, such a perfectly suggestive choice for Valentine’s Day. Thank you Angie Cao for the gorgeous images!

What you will need:
4 mix and match eclectic vases and vintage containers
One bunch pink peonies
One bunch pink ranunculus
One bunch pink hellebore
One bunch of dates
One bunch pink hurricane lilies
One bunch vintage colored roses
2-3 stems dark pink amaryllis
2 bunches of drumstick allium
One bunch dusty miller
One set of floral shears


From Kiana of Tulipina: Valentine’s Day is a fun holiday for floral design and a great opportunity to make as many beautiful things as possible.

In this project I thought it would be fun to take some of my favorite vases and fill them with complementary flowers and use them as a clustered centerpiece for a Valentine’s Day table setting – maybe brunch or dinner. If you invite friends, you can send them home with one of these designs.

I love owls, and here they become the theme. I found the cutest owl plates on sale at Sur La Table after the holidays, and bought some matching owl vases from Anthropologie knowing that they would be the perfect vessel for some amazing little arrangements!
