Coming Up Roses

Ultra-feminine and oh-so soft is this pastel palette of flowers and their colours.

Peonies, roses, carnations and the large spherical headed hydrangea all make for soft textured displays that give a look that’s subtle and sumptuous.

With flowers that have so much in the way of ruffles and pleating in themselves - think clean lines and elegant shapes for the rest of your wedding reception.

Accessorise with metallics, pale neutrals and crystal.

Don’t worry about the mix of silver, gold and bronze this is a colour scheme that can take them all as long as they are matt not sparkly.

For the top table make a statement with a low floral table runner and tall silver candelabras; simply add five tapered candles for the perfect centrepiece that when lit later in the evening will create an amazing atmosphere.

Switch it round when it comes to your guest’s tables with a multitude of short pillar candle holders, tea lights and glass votives; and tall floral displays in crystal vases.

Think drink for your reception as pink champagne and rose wine will add another level of colour to this palette.
