Be an Art Deco Diva !

A 'bride to be' telephoned recently and asked for a quote for bridal flowers.  She was given my details by the lovely Faerie Godmothers who will be dressing the bride's venue with table flowers, chair covers, linen and gorgeous finishing touches.

Whilst chatting the bride indicated she wanted a 'vintage' theme.  Images of vintage china, bird cages draped in strands of pearls and flowers in tones of palest pinks, lilacs and creams came to mind. " Err.....not exactly" said the bride.  Both Bride and Groom - to be, have a love of all things 'Art Deco' and want flowers to reflect this.  They have sourced art deco inspired stationery and want their day to be based on this theme.

So...I am very excited!!  I too have a love affair with this style which began after a stay at the very beautiful Waldorf Astoria in New York.

I have begun to research all things Art Deco, suitable flowers and Art Deco inspired weddings.  I feel the flowers should be 'unfussy' and structured but also feminine....with the all important touches of bling. 

If you are inspired by this style....choose a gown which is slinky,soft and full of glamour. Search for vintage jewellery and incorporate bling and feathers into your venue.  Calla lillies are great for this scheme together with roses and orchids. Also carry on the theme with an art deco inspired cake, stationery etc. Guest tables could be named after iconic art deco buildings. 

Things we love.......
