Decorating for a Christmas Wedding.

If you  live in Northern Ontario, decorating for a Christmas ceremony can be as simple as raiding a few evergreen trees and picking some branches. Early on in the season, after we have had 2 killing frosts, you can start filling all those outdoor planters. Store them outside in tthe cold, out of the sun, and the wind, and they will stay beautiful until the day of your ceremony.

 You can order from us large Magnolia and birch wreaths - custom-made in your colours.

 Pick lots of red osier Dogwood, these sticks can be bundled and used in many places.

 Don't forget to order wreaths to decorate your Home, the Church, or the Garden. This is  our signature Magnolia, red pine, & Cedar Wreath.

 Use lots of Sugar cones in your decorating.

 Use Cottage Paint to do up ceremony signs for your Wedding.

 Faux Botanicals are a good choice for a Winter Wedding - no worries about Flowers freezing.

For the best in Faux Botanical Wedding Flowers, and DIY Wedding Classes, come see The Camellia, 30 Hacquoil Rd. Slate River, Thunder Bay, On.

Peony Love, the Camellia, Thunder Bay

 Peonies are one of my favourite Flowers , they especially look beautiful in wedding bouquets. And they smell nice. You can gather them from your garden, picking them when they are about half open is best. The key to keeping them fresh is to hydrate, hydrate and hydrate. These babies need lots of water.

For Wedding Flowers and DIY Wedding Flower classes, visit The Camellia at 30, Hacquoil Rd. Slate River. On.
p-807-475-3551. Open Wednesday through Sunday.

A September Wedding, The Camellia, Thunder Bay

September is the perfect time to get married. The summer's heat has become bearable, the bugs and biting flies have subsided, and the changing colours of the leaves become a stunning backdrop for photographs. Yellow, oranges, rusts, burgundys, and browns - such a wide colour spectrum to choose from.

Ceremony decorations made from neutral earthtones and bundles of wheat can be reused as door swags after the wedding.

Centerpieces can be made from faux flowers with an insert of fresh sunflowers, again these can be re-used after the ceremony.

Pumpkins can be gilded and glittered and used as centrepieces on the tables at your Reception.

And the marvelous colours of Fall are free! 

 Here is a faux bouquet that we have added fresh blooms to.
