Ice cream sunday inspired flowers at Lovely Bridal Salon

The gals from Lovely called me to see if I would come up with some fun flowers for the Carol Hannah trunk show last week. I was thrilled to find out that the theme was "an ice cream social." All I kept thinking of was strawberry ice cream and sprinkles, hence the super girly bouquet. I used this gorgeous pink hydrangea, white dahlias, green mums, pink roses, queen ann lace, and yes.... pink carnations. I too hated carnations for the longest time, but, am now finding that when in context, they offer a sweet, vintage feel that no other flower has to offer. I am officially a fan of carnations, especially because they are coming in some super fabulous bold new colors.
I tied a bright turquoise ribbon around the handle with some old keepsakes that I often like to incorporate from the brides. I also may some little party favors for people to take home including old school candy canes which were bound to a water tube containing a few stems of red spray roses, pink lisianthus, and green mums. *Note to brides.... this would be a SUPER cute card table idea.....
