Roses, Ranunculus and Dahlias oh my! Thanks to the wonderful talents of Violet and Verde, today’s flower guide is teeming with not one, but four flower arrangements. Charlie Juliet did a great job at capturing all of these beautiful blooms in a variety of hues!

From the floral designer, Bridget: I chose each to be a little different from each other. This time of year, dahlias are in season and a great, affordable option. They come in a variety of colors and I think they are a really fun flower. I used them in three of the arrangements in four different varieties.

For the lavender arrangement, I really wanted to create a soft, romantic look that was more monochromatic. I really love adding herbs to arrangements, so the flowering oregano was a lovely accent to the soft blooms.

I loved the bi-color dahlia mixed with the solid purple dahlias in the bouquet. I wanted it to be a little untamed looking so the fern, jasmine, and ranunculus created a whimsical addition with their curled stems.

Caramel Antike Roses
Dahlias
Lisianthus

The Japanese anemone was my inspiration for the pink and yellow arrangement. It’s a petite pink flower with a yellow center similar to a daisy and I love how it just pops it’s head out of this arrangement. I used other pink and yellow blooms and several different foliage varieties to create more texture and compliment the anemone.

I think the black dahlia created a nice contrast to the soft hydrangea and the protea is just a fun, different flower often overlooked as it isn’t a traditional romantic flower, but it really works in this arrangement.

    Wow, these are so beautiful. I'm in the process of planning out my big day and I think I'll be going with a violet, or lavender color theme. I'm in LOVE with that second bouquet of flowers. I was looking at some of the albums wedding wire has on lavender flowers http://www.weddingwire.com/wedding-photos/flowers/purple to get some ideas too. Ill have to print some pictures out to show to my flower vendor.

    A really great guide and very useful to see the flowers separately. Really like the black dhalia, looks very striking!
