Today we’re sharing our favorite floral installations of 2019! We did A LOT of installations this year- romantic, boho, ceremony flowers, reception flowers…and we did them all over! In Italy, Portland, Austin, Boise, Arizona, Malibu…we are truly thankful for the year we’ve had.
Floral installations are SO much planning, design processing and patience. They require a lot of engineering at times and when we first started Good Seed Floral, we were verrrrry intimidated by them. How would we get them to stay?! What materials were best to use?! What flowers should we order and how many??
But now we couldn’t be more obsessed with them. Over the years we’ve come up with systems and materials that we can’t live without and floral installs quickly became our favorite part of floral design (other than the bridal bouquet of course!). They are so varied and can have such a big impact on whatever space they are in. When a bride is on a budget, we ALWAYS suggest investing in a few big moments that will be the stars of the show.
We love using lush foliage, dried elements, grasses, big, petal-filled roses…all of it. It just depends on where we are and who we’re designing for! One of our favorite greenery’s to use is smilax- it lasts forever and has the best movement. Some of our favorite roses are quicksand roses, tibet, romantic antique, sandstone, white majolica and earl grey. We love using dried palms, spray painted pampas, bleached italian ruscus, dried queen anne’s lace and lunaria for texture. And for airiness? Queen anne’s lace, opened up tulips and lisianthus and painted babies breath.
When it comes to installs, we love thinking outside of the box and creating something unique and striking. We love using fun structures and we love being challenged by whatever structures we need to build on or around. Playing engineer was intimidating at first, but now it’s so much fun.
Let us know which ones are your favorite!
Thank you guys so much for hanging out!
Love, Josie and Tay
