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.

Pre-Wedding stress, The Camellia, Thunder Bay

What is Pre-Wedding stress? It's those unforseen situations that pop up just before the week of THE WEDDING!! Here's some scenarios we've come across... yes, Florists wear another cap, It's like The Peanuts comic strip, "The Psychiatrist is in.."

Did you know that continued high levels of Stress in your Life will age you faster? Click here ( The Canadian Institute of Stress)  to see what you can do about it

- Aunt Caroline (ficticious name) decides to help you with the decorating..she comes to see you with bags of flowers from the (Quelle horreur!!) Dollar store. You have had the decorating all planned for at least 6 months, everything is all assembled and ready to go. You have done countless mock-ups of the table settings , and all is under control, or so you thought. Besides, she's helped you before. You know that she stuffs things randomly without the proper mechanics, and should someone sneeze at the Table, the entire centerpiece may go flying! What can you do?

- Tell her that the Florist has already arranged everything, and that your Wedding may be featured in a Wedding magazine, so nothing can be changed or added at this point.
- Show her what you have planned, (if there's time) and thank her profusely for her offer of help. Say "I could use some help with...."

OMG - Did anyone order a Corsage for  my Stepmother...?  There will always be someone forgotten in the confusion, so rather than offend anyone, order at least 2 extra corsages. Same for Boutonierres. 

Where am I going to put my Hairbrush and tissues, and ...and...?

Come visit us at The Camellia - we have a fab array of evening purses, some are hands-free so you can still give hugs and shake hands.

And most of all, take some time for yourself. Sit by the lake and do some positive affirmations.. Our Wedding Day is going to be wonderful. I am Happy...... I am Loved. ..... and you get the picture, you can add your own mantras. 

It's been proven that petting a  Dog calms a person down, so Pet away!

Go for a Massage, then straight to bed for a Nap! Your deserve it!

I'm a great believer in Lavender to help you destress - Try our Matanzas Creek roll-on essential Oil of Lavender.
