The Festive Issue: Bouquet Recipes

Good afternoon b.loved readers! petal queen Liz from Blue Sky Flowers here, and I’m ready to share some festive bouquet inspiration with you !  This is such a vibrant and festive time of year it is very easy to fall into the trap of traditional red and green … so we have rung the changes and plumped for cranberry and sage instead …

The most simple bouquet of luscious dark red amaranthus and soft green mimosa foliage – what could be simple and yet more yummy than this simple pairing – lush, glam yet budget friendly.  Dark red James Storey orchids or even ginger flowers could be used at other times of the year to create a similar monochrome feel.

For our second bouquet I created a more classic, but loose, hand-tied bouquet introducing dark Black Touch dahlia, penisetum grasses, senecio, black calla lilies.  As an alternative, Black Baccara roses are available all year round as is eucalyptus which will give a similar feel at any time for a similar cost.

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.


Yes lovelies, December has arrived and with all the fun and frivolities of the festive sea
