Rosy Outlook

“Wild, climbing rose cuttings were used to create organic movement on the wall. And larger garden roses were clustered together for more impact to create this focal wall,” explains Amanda Hansen of Decoration Inc.

Season’s Greetings

"For a wedding with a modern boho greenhouse vibe we created this [stationery] suite with textured neutrals. The main invitation was inspired by a macramé wall hanging with a tassel, and just a pop of tropical green leaves,” says Jill Ryder of Shindig Bespoke.

Romantic Greenery

“A variation of eucalyptus was used in this arrangement to give some extra texture to an otherwise very classic arrangement. The greens soften the look and the delicate willow gives the arrangement of a bit of whimsy,” says Euri Wong, lead designer at Bloominous.

Energizing Bouquet

“Eucalyptus, magnolia, and Italian ruscus greens were added to create a fresh green backdrop to white and pale blue blooms. Magnolia is a great way to incorporate a lush look because of the brown backing, which is almost velvety in look and feel. The ruscus provides movement, as does the eucalyptus,” explains Wong.

Fresh & Elegant

“For an affordable, yet on-trend look, use an abundance of wild and cascading greens, such as eucalyptus. Add in pops of fresh flowers and you have a look that's both organic and elegant,” says Liza Roeser Atwood, CEO of FiftyFlowers.com.

Unconventional Materials

“Use a mix of greens, such as moss, lemon leaf, and myrtle to create a textured and visually interesting table runner that's sure to wow your guests,” suggests Atwood. “This look is perfect for garden, woodland, and eco-chic events and is easy to create. Add flowers or just use greens that fit your personal style.”

Sublime Simplicity

This gorgeous spring bouquet is perfect for the DIY bride. Atwood suggests pairing a rich colored green like Israeli or Italian ruscus with white blooms. The result is a look that's vibrant, crisp, and classic. “Ruscus greens are hardy, long-lasting, and easy to work with,” she adds.

It’s Raining Blooms

Baby’s breath flowers are making a comeback this year and while some brides use it in their bouquets, you can also create romantic “clouds” and suspend them above the reception tables. It makes for such a show-stopping décor element.

Climbing Forest

Bring the outdoors in by using high vases for your table centerpieces. The higher and lusher the blooms are, the more you create the impression of being in the middle of a garden. Place potted trees at the entrance of your reception venue and hang bistro lights on their branches for a romantic enchanted forest look.

One Plant, Many Varieties

Eucalyptus is a versatile and budget-friendly greenery option that looks elegant and makes any arrangement effortlessly chic. For this bouquet, the designer used baby blue, seeded, and silver dollar eucalyptus. “The silver dollar is nice to break up all the angles of the succulent without blending in too much,” explained Wong.

Twinkle, Twinkle

While it may be a bit dangerous (keep the children away), placing candles in between lush greenery makes for a dreamy sight. And it looks absolutely lovely in photos.
