Inspiration of the Day: A Burgundy Forsythia Bouquet

For this brilliant burgundy bouquet Liza Lubell, founder of Peartree Flowers turned to her mother’s garden. In it she she found forsythia, a common garden leafy bush that’s not often found in a bridal bouquet. “The speckled forsythia brought out the richer burgundy and red tones in the flowers,” says Liza. Liza also included garden roses, ranunculuses, dahlias, amaranth, and jessup orchids for a an exotic array that fit in perfectly at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden venue. Long silk ribbons of different widths tied the bouquet together for a romantic touch.

    I’m having foresthia (in bloom) as one of the plants being used for our wedding florals. Our colors are metallic gold, golden butterscotch, pale butter yellow, deep ink blue, azure blue, and wisteria grey-blue. I was surprised to see the use of the foresthia without the flowers, leaves only. Very pretty. I don’t know that I would have been into those stark white blossoms with this mix – but they do work.

    In case anyone does not know, foresthia in bloom has no leaves yet, or small lime-pale green leaves, and the flowers are BRIGHT canary yellow, shaped somewhat like orchids, running up both sides of wooden branches.

    I have observed that you post a lot of inspirations related to this floral designer. It is really striking. I mean….ah….does The Knot have a special relationship with her, or something? ;)

    Can we see inspiration from other floral designers, elsewhere in the country? Most brides do not live in NYC. How about a series of inspirations showcases foral designers in all the major cities or regions – maybe using regional/local plants or inspirations within their work? Like – if in N.E. – they use plant material combined with a lobster trap for a centerpiece? Or lichen and moss from The White Mountains? I think brides and grooms would really be inspired to see how they could incorporate their regional plant materials, and it would definitely be very ‘green’ if people were shown how to use native plants rather than having plant material shipped from elsewhere.
