Orange Blossoms for a vintage themed wedding

The Orange blossom is the fragrant flower of the Citrus sinensis (orange tree). It is used in perfume making, has been written about as an aphrodisiac and is the state flower of Florida. It is traditionally associated with good fortune and has been popular in bridal bouquets and head wreaths for weddings. Orange blossom essence is an important component in the making of perfume.

I have been often asked to make them and here is my latest set for a bride who is going to be creating a head wreath out of it..

A Forget Me Not Memorial Rememberance

The Forget-Me-Not flower is a favorite wild flower of many; however, this small, blue flower has been a symbol of both love and hope, they are often ordered for a  memorial or wedding as seeds packets

I had an order as it my client's father memorial function, (having been through one for my brother myself)  as her father loved the forget me nots.

Along with it I created a tiny arrangement of gardenia's with some remaining forget me nots in a deep blue mini bottle for my etsy shop,with Mother's Day fast approaching you could order it for your Mom!

Leaving you with this song that I love..

God be with you till we meet again; 
When life’s perils thick confound you;
Put His arms unfailing round you; 
God be with you till we meet again. 

God be with you till we meet again; 
Of His promises remind you; 
For life’s upper garner bind you;
God be with you till we meet again. 

God be with you till we meet again;
Sicknesses and sorrows taking, 
Never leaving or forsaking; 
God be with you till we meet again.

God be with you till we meet again; 
Keep love’s banner floating o’er you, 
Strike death’s threatening wave before you; 
God be with you till we meet again. 

God be with you till we meet again; 
Ended when for you earth’s story, 
Israel’s chariot sweep to glory; 
God be with you till we meet again.

orange blossoms wedding hair bride
Incorporating orange blossoms into the bride's costume originated in ancient China where they were emblems of purity, chastity and innocence. There are few trees so prolific as the orange; it is one of the rare plants that blooms and bears fruit at the same time, thus becoming symbolic of fruitfulness.

During the time of the Crusades, the custom was brought from the East first to Spain , then to France , then to England in the early 1800's. By then, many enchanting legends had spread throughout the continent of maidens entwining fresh orange blossoms into a bridal wreath for their hair. The influence became so indoctrinated into the culture that the phrase "to gather orange blossoms" took the meaning " to seek a wife". Even America became enthralled with the bridal orange blossoms.

The 19th century bride even decorated her gown with this symbol of fertility. But it was Queen Victoria who created the vogue for the sweet smelling blossoms when she wore them in a grand wreath for her 1840 wedding, and the classic floral theme for the Victorian bride was set. Ever since Winsor brides have taken care to tuck an orange blossom in their bridal ensemble

paper flower cake toppers

Sunny had ordered some paper cake flowers to go along with some large paper flowers.These are made from just white paper! She sent me a gorgeous wedding cake inspiration and I created my take on them -hope it did justice! It took a lot of reworking and hence the delay to figure things out as I have never thought of making them out of white paper so this was a exciting challenge -I am pretty thrilled on my new paper gardenias and the more contemporary paper flowers for this order! Hope you will sent me picture of them on the cake!

More pictures coming up on a Holy Communion wreath for my cousin!
