How ridiculous are these bold blooms? We used a combo of Japanese ranunculus, anemones, ranunculus, carnations, spray roses, and sweet pea in shades of red, pink, and yellow to create these colorful centerpieces for this beautiful table scape designed by Anything But Gray Events.

Colorful Floral Clouds & Bold Ombre Blooms

Bright and bold dyed babies breath clouds by Winston & Main hang over long table at colorful LA birthday celebration.
 
I’m always so flattered when other vendors or industry peeps hire Winston & Main to bring the blooms ESPECIALLY when they give me the creative freedom to really go for it.

That’s the dream.

So when David of La Pinata Party Rentals reached out about creating something extra special for his *extra special* birthday party this ombre floral fluff dream became reality.

All 21 feet of it. Floral foam free + 100% reclaimed post event too.
 
Yellow and Orange Ombre Floral Designs featuring Dahlias, Butterfly Ranunculus, Bunny Tails and more by Winston & Main.
 
Light it up! I designed the entire table in an ombre, florals + tapers too- moving from yellow to peach to orange to pink to red to blue to purple. SO much fun. SO many tapers.
 
Pink and red floral design ombre featuring double tulips, dahlias, and painted italian ruscus by Winston & Main.
 
The pink & red arrangement may have been my favorite because the double tulips were RIDICULOUS for October.
 
Blue and purple ombre floral design featuring carnations, tulips, strawflowers, dahlias and more dyed and painted flowers by Winston & Main.
 
Although, blue & purple are definitely the winner for being MOST on trend- Pantone named Classic Blue as it’s Color of the Year shortly after this.
 
The guest of honor wears a luxe blue velvet dinner jacket and is standing under 21 feet of bold and colorful floral clouds.
 
Talk about an incredible host- David treated his guests to a welcome bar, an epically colorful + delicious dinner catered by Hungry Bear Catering Co., a Xylophone Band AND a post-dinner surprise arcade reveal. YES, an entire arcade. Host AND birthday goals.

The velvet tux wasn’t a bad touch either.

This color combo was the most challenging for me, but I was so happy with the way it turned out. Also, #carnationsforever.
 
Dyed & painted babies breath clouds hanging over long tables at intimate & colorful birthday celebration.
 
More fluff. You’re welcome.

Ladders are an indispensable part of great floral design.
 
Hi-five under colorful floral clouds.
 
Hi-fives all around. Showing you this one despite whatever is going on with my face.

Thanks for capturing these colorful clouds in all their glory Julie Shuford! You the best!

Moody Jewel Tone Wedding at The Houdini Estate

Our bride's jewel toned bridal bouquet by Los Angeles florist Winston and Main
Jaclyn & Andrew were the absolute dream clients- AND the flowers…
Holy hell!

I’m still in awe and I designed ’em!
Nature is magic.

The lush jewel toned floral copper arch designed by Los Angeles florist Winston and Main.
Let’s talk about this arch. All the flowers. All the colors. All the texture.
AND just a little edge, right?

Important planning tip: Always, always, go for the statement, rather than trying to spread the flowers (and dollars) everywhere.

Originally J&A had opted for a few smaller pieces (aisle markers, smaller pieces around the reception, that sort of thing) BUT this arch was important to Jaclyn, and at our design meeting, we rearranged the proposal a bit to make it a priority.

WORTH IT.
Our bride poses at Houdini Estate with her lush jewel toned bridal bouquet.
It was such a joy to create this beautiful bouquet for Jaclyn, full of peonies, roses, ranunculus, dahlias, and that gorgeous moody guava greenery.
