Our couple had already had a destination ceremony, so this gig was strictly party flowers. They were in a reading room with the long oak tables and the classic brass and green glass lamps. Library heaven.
The flowers were an assortment of blooms with a vintage garden feel. Lots of grasses, pods, and dusty miller complete the look.
We placed a selection of books the couple provided on every table which they sourced at the library book sale. I have a feeling they might end up donated back to the library - what goes around, comes around!
In this picture you can see that the flowers were done as handtied bouquets and not in dishes. We were going for a "Jane Austin just happened to drop into a wedding at a library" kind of look LOL!
We did a test on the blooms back at the shop by leaving some of the daintier ones out of water to see how they would look. While we definitely do NOT recommend you leaving your flowers out of water for any length of time - it compromises their longevity severely - it worked out just fine for a few hours at an event.
