Roses for your Wedding, the Camellia, Thunder Bay, Ontario

 Roses are so beautiful, and are wonderful for your Wedding Bouquet. What colour will you choose? How will you know what type to ask for? A good place to start is researching the Flower Council of Holland's website. If you love Roses like these huge, old-fashioned varieties, ask your Florist for David Austin Garden roses.

 They almost look fake ... but these are all real , as seen at Leif Erikenson Park, in Duluth, Mineesota.

 The variety of colours are spectacular ... love this pale Blush Rose.

 So many Roses were in bloom the day we visited the Garden.

Here is one of the Bouquets with Roses, which we designed for a Wedding this July. For stunning Wedding Flowers, come visit The Camellia, at 30, Hacquoil Rd. Thunder Bay, On. We will reopen on Sept. 11th. 2013, and are Open Wednesday through Sunday. Phone 807)475-3551 to book a complimentary Flower consultation.

How to Wrap a great-looking Present, PAPER SOURCE, Ca.

Today we would like to share with you this Video from Paper It shows how to wrap a present beautifully.

I wandered into Paper Source back in the Spring, drawn into the store by their beautiful papers ( I'm a sucker for paper and anything related to paper). I think I spent at least 2 hours in the store, and still did not see everything. Come on in with me, let's head into the Paper source in Palo Alto ( Town and Country Mall),  California!

The attractive display of Pinwheels really grabs your attention from outside the store, wouldn't this make a great backdrop for a Head table?

These paper flower Garlands would look great at a Bridal shower, strung across the room from ceiling height.

If you have been having trouble finding that exact colour of paper for your Wedding stationery, look no further, there are shelves of various paper stock in different shapes and colours. 

A paper lover's heaven!

Paper Source also does custom Wedding stationery, here are their Idea Boards.

Too much choice, can a person have 2 styles of invitations when they can't choose? Absolutely!

And their Staff, they have that intuitive ability to recognize a Paper-Lover when they walk into the Paper-Source...even if you don't need anything, you will be buying paper before you walk out their doors. I recognized the book, " Vintage Wedding Style" by Elizabeth Demos, I have a signed copy of this book as I had met Elizabeth at Junk Bonanza Spring 2013. The book to have if you are planning a Vintage Wedding. Here is an interview with Elizabeth

When you leave their store, you are walking out on a cloud of creativity, ideas swirling around in your head, you get outside into the California sunshine, smelling the Jasmine which was blooming at the time, heavenly smell!

A Red Wedding, The Camellia, Thunder Bay, On

 Today we would like to share with you Wedding Flowers  which we recently designed for a Country Wedding in Thunder Bay. The inspiration  for the couple was the double tandem Bike in Red.

A vintage 1957 Pontiac. LOVE quilted saying for sale at The Camellia.

The Groom's Boutonierre, with red rose, mini carnation and lime Kermit mums, with baby euc. & million star Gyp.

Groomsmen boutonierres - of Red Carnations, lime button mums and million star gyp.

Corsages of white Roses, with cream spray roses and lime Kermit mums. Ask about our corsage magnets.

The Bride's bouquet - with Garden peonies, white mini gerbera daisies, cream roses, dahlias, sunflowers, lime spider mums, lime kermit mums, red carnations, salal and tree fern. It's so beautiful, and I don't normally like the colour Red.

 The bouquets and the Red Pontiac were made for each other, don't you agree?

 This wooden sign would be a great present for the Groom to give to his Bride on their Wedding Day. 
In stock at The Camellia.

 The Bridesmaid purses, available in a wide variety of colours. In stock at the Camellia, price  $ 26.00.

 The Bridesmaid Bouquets - such a striking colour combination!

Nice dash!

 The Bride wanted a floral arrangement to commemorate those loved ones in the family who have passed away. A thoughtful way to remember them.

  The Brides' favourite - Sunflowers. 
A Big Thank you to Florists Supply ( Winnipeg) for supplying fresh Flowers  on short notice.
