Stacy, owner and florist at Stacy K Floral, designed some amazing arrangements to showcase
different blooms and their names! Read on below for a mini interview!
WHAT DO YOU FEEL SETS YOU APART FROM OTHER FLORISTS IN THE WEDDING INDUSTRY/IN THE AREA?
I don’t think we pick one style and stick with it. I love the variation of designs that can be created with floral and to create looks for each event that are suited for the design of the event and the couple.
WHO IS YOUR IDEAL CLIENT?
Really anyone that appreciates flowers and the work that we create.
WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT WORKING IN THE WEDDING INDUSTRY?
That no two days are alike. I love meeting new people and that we are constantly working with special moments in peoples lives.
WHEN MEETING WITH COUPLES, WHAT IS THE BIGGEST TIP YOU FIND YOURSELF GIVING THEM?
Don’t try to find “the image” of exactly what you want. You are looking for inspiration points, like texture, color, patterns. We want to build exactly what you want and hopefully you can’t find it anywhere, because it hasn’t been created for you yet.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE CURRENT TRENDS IN BOUQUETS, CENTERPIECES, AND TABLESCAPES?
Bouquets are getting big. There is a lot of the lavish, dripping, texturized design right now. Big full blossoms of English garden roses, dahlias, peonies complimented with small blooms with unique movement and texture.
Centerpieces lots of greens, I love the texture and movement that greens and foliage can offer to centerpieces. We have a few wedding with all green centerpieces which is really fun to create, complimented by lots of candles.
Tablescape, I would say clients are still in love with that garland runner. We try to change the style of tablescape by mixing up the greens or adding in blossoms for some color. Complementing candles worked in as well. I personally love adding produce style elements, pears, apples, even eggplants they all can add great color and interest to tablescape design.
ANY FAVORITE COLOR TRENDS FOR 2017?
I currently am in love with the colors we used in this shoot. Peach, nudes, into the orange tones, complimented by a rose gold, or gold metallic it’s really warm and can be used in any season. I also love the all green lush look, that perfect Emerald green with crisp green and white blooms one of my all time favorites.
IF YOU COULD GIVE ONE PIECE OF ADVICE TO COUPLES ABOUT THEIR WEDDING FLORALS, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Dare to be different, it’s ok to step away from the norm. Take a trip to your local paint store and start playing with color swatches to create the perfect pallet and then let us do the rest. It’s our job to know the flowers, you just need to let us know what colors you love.
