Pink Event decor, The Camellia

   Photo of Vases of varying heights filled with Fresh flowers, the Camellia

 Sometimes you're walking around, getting on with your To-do list, and you come upon a display of Flowers that is SO beautiful that it stops you dead in your tracks. These photos do not do it justice. If you are getting married, or have an important Event coming up, this would be a great display if your colour scheme is Pink.

 Flowers add so much beauty to your Event. Do not even think of not having Flowers  .. so much would be missing. Special events in our lives are marked by flowers - Birth, Engagements, Graduations, and so on. When people need to express grief at unexplained tragedies, there is usually a mass of floral bouquets at the site of the tragedy. In this display notice how the Florist has made use of varying heights of glass vases to add drama and interest, and to keep your eye moving.

 Hydrangea heads have been placed in colured dyes to achieve a soft pinkish beige tint. Flowers under glass seem like works of Art, and in truth, all flowers are works of beauty .

 Large glass fishbowls - with rose heads, hydrangea blossoms, and dyed water. Beautiful in the centre of a table.

 Some people will say Carnations, but look at them here, elevated by massing techniques and effective use of colour blocking, enhanced by the bamboo shoots. Oh-so-pretty!

 Roses massed with Hydrangeas, and placed at an angle in the Vase. Instant drama..

 Romantic blush pink Roses, so suited to a pastel-coloured Wedding celebration.

Wedding shoes in all their glory, The Camellia,Thunder Bay

Today I would like to share this great post from Alan Dickson on Shoes...

Shoes in Weddings now can mean anything from a fancy shoe to a  Cowboy boot or a rubber farm boot, to a Vintage shoe, and so much more. Not to forget colour co-ordinated runners, and  fun  flip-flops. When you are considering shoes, do take into account how much time you may spend standing on your feet. Those shoes may look great, but feel awful by the end of the night. Most Brides kick off their shoes and are dancing barefoot by the end of their event.

I am obsessing over YELLOW right now, and wanted to share with you this great site So many cool Inspiration boards and Real Weddings

Love the POP of the Yellow - so bright and cheery.  

If you want bright and cheery, yellow is your colour and here at The Camellia, we do bright Wedding flowers, like these yellow tulips seen at Keukenhof Gardens in Lisse, Holland.

Love these yellow Gerbera daisies and sweet smelling yellow freesias.

Not to be outdone, yellow blooms from our Summer garden at the Camellia. For bright yellow Wedding flowers and  DIY Wedding classes, Visit the Camellia at 30, Hacquoil Rd. Slate River, Thunder Bay, On. p-807)-475-3551
