We love a good come back, and mauve has exceeded our expectations. She not only came back but has made a huge statement in the wedding world. There are so many directions she can take as both blush and lavender tones are intermixed through out her. This time we focused on the lavender and purple hues that are so striking and timeless.

We wanted to experiment with including all color tones from white to dark plumb. We incorporated all the colors through the color wheel that would bridge these two colors together and mauve was the perfect tone.

Flower farmers have yet to grow too many varieties allowing this elusive color to still be hard to find. It makes this colored flower so exciting to work with as we are still learning how to experiment with it and incorporate it into our arrangements.

the flower workshop

Here's the one I created ya'll! This one was the guiding light for our 17 attendees and it must have worked because they rocked it.  I had such a blast teaching a little of what is my life's passion and I loved every second of it.  We are definitely in the works for our next one and will make sure all of you Houston folks will get a chance to come play with flowers!
