Winter brides, meet your new best friend: Amaryllis. This bloom has a silky feathery texture, which reminds us of stylish floral sashes on wedding gowns. We will leave with you Sarah Winward of Honey of a Thousand Flowers and her inspiration with this bloom:

From Sarah Winward: I love the idea of a cozy winter wedding in a historic building. Perhaps the environment is a bit dark with only some chandeliers and windows for light… we would use lots of candles in tarnished candlesticks to make the tables glow. In this centerpiece arrangement rich orange and blues are contrasted with flowers that are a true white, a perfect color combination to match the moody but elegant venue. Amaryllis are a wonderful flower for winter weddings, they are large, and have a shape similar to a lily, with several blooms on each stem. Privet berry, kumquat and ranunculus (a few of my winter staples).

    Hi! I have to ask about those plates. They are TOO beautiful!!! Where can I find them?? Kumquats are Delish, I loved seeing them included in these arrangements.

    Love the use of kumquat (fruit) with flowers. And privet berries are adding whole new dimension to it. Looks like a painting has come alive. Beautiful!!
