the New Look

Wednesday, January 5, 2011

These lovely arrangements of ranunculus and garden roses are stunning; I always chose low, full blooms over tall, more structural centerpieces. And who can resist the simplicity of that menu-so chic!

  6. Oooh pretty! I'm with you on the low arrangement. Don't really see the point of the tall ones (which seem to be very popular on the TLC and WE wedding shows from the East Coast/NY/Jersey area, no?) except for when you first walk in the room. Then your guests are just staring at the base of an arrangement stand.

  11. The arrangements are lovely - I think I prefer them to something higher and more outrageous.

  12. Is that a mini arrangement with the rose on the left?? So sweet! If I could turn this picture into my living room I would be a happy girl :)

  13. Girls, I'm so glad you're with me about tall arrangements! Annie's right-every WE/TLC/New Jersey wedding show features these sky high arrangements, and while they're impressive at first glance, ultimately they just interrupt conversation!

  16. Lena - so true! Never to mind that the simpler, smaller arrangements are so much more chic!

  17. I completely agree with the shorter stems. It's Martha Stewart's specialty in my opinion. And I do adore that menu. So sweet!

  19. We definitely employed this technique in our wedding :) I love love love the lower arrangements...you can actually see the other guests on the opposite side of the table!

    So glad you liked the giveaway! Happy I could offer a little bit of a distraction :)

    Have a great night--and thanks for being my #100! xoxo

  24. I've never been a huge roses fan, but that is just gorgeous.

    Also you consider those shoes practical? I'd totally fall on my behind if I had to walk ANYwhere in those! :) even though they are absolutely adorable.

  25. agreed! we had a few high center pieces just to give the room more visual variation, but the majority of them were low white porcelain footed vases with full blooming peonies :)

  26. i love how bright, white, and pretty these look! i am a fan over shorter blooms as well so that i can see the other person across the table!!
