Flowers: Like a Pale Blue Sky

In early spring, 
flowers color-yielding
bloom, as grasping their
first taste of sun.

A lovely bride came to me a few years ago asking for white flowers with hints of green and pale blue.   If you haven't already guessed, she was tall, blonde, blue-eyed and dreamy sweet...her flower choices fit her well.  The bouquet was to hold white dendrobium orchids, white bouvardia, jade hypericum and Lady Slipper orchids with striated green/white sepals and petals above the pure green "slipper".  The Lady Slipper is a sight to behold and I looked forward to this wedding just to admire the beauty of this one flower.  It did not disappoint.
At the reception, white peonie so full of petals they looked ready to burst, nestled alongside hydrangea and tendrils of white sweetpea.  
And beautiful mounds of pale blue hydrangea on fluted clear glass vases filled the room with a dreamy elegance.

In the spring time, simplicity rings abundance.

Thanks for stopping by!
