Bridal Bouquets

With Wedding Season in full swing here in Northern California let’s chat about Bridal Bouquets! While we find that the Boho style is still ranking number one, there are so many different varieties out there to choose from. For the longest time it seemed that every bouquet was your standard rose ball arrangement. We are thrilled that so many brides are now willing to step outside of the box in regards to their visions for their big day. Here at Ambience Floral Design & Gift we really like to live outside of the box as often as possible. We have waited a long time to say that the “rules” no longer apply! From a timeless yet traditional wedding to a whimsical romantic wedding we’ve got you covered!

The Succulent Hype!

Succulents are everywhere & they are a very simple way to liven up any space from your home to the office. They are even being used in wedding bouquets, in corsages & in boutonnieres! Did you know that succulents are available in a variety of colors?! Green is a given, but they are also available in hues of purple, blue, pink and even in reds. They look great standing alone in a pot or planted among other succulents in beautiful garden. Even people without a green thumb can easily enjoy succulents! They are fairly low maintenance & only need to be lightly watered once per week. It is best to let the soil dry out completely between watering days. Here’s a helpful fact, if you are over watering them the leaves with start to turn yellow & the succulent can actually rot. Succulents are happy indoors or out, but need to be placed in indirect sunlight as they can actually get sun burnt. We have some amazing succulent gardens available in a variety of sizes & shapes. This is one of my most favorite succulent gardens that we have arranged!

Do you love peonies???

Peonies, Peonies, Peonies!!! This morning the green fists of the peonies are getting ready  to break my heart  as the sun rises,  as the sun strokes them with his old, buttery fingers  and they open  pools of lace,  white and pink… ~Mary Oliver As summer is now upon us, this poem reminded us of one of… Continue Reading
