The Festive Issue: Bouquet Recipes

Good afternoon b.loved readers! b.team 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.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
