I'm Dreaming of a Black & White Christmas...

by Tuscany Flowers in , , , , , , , , ,


....And it is chic, chic, chic! White as the fluffy fur of Santa's suit, black as the coal you'll be getting for all the naughty fun you've had this year. 

Black and white will always be the epitome of chic and we just love it this year for modern, graphic holiday decor. The flowers: white ranunculus, tulips, hyacinths and anemones. Silk and velvet ribbons, shimmery paillettes and candles everywhere. 

Wishing you the happiest of holidays and the chicest of new years!


Burlesque Birthday

by Tuscany Flowers in , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


Today we bring you a whole lot of pink. No, not baby pink, sugary pink or cotton candy pink...none of that sweet stuff. We're talking bright, hot, shocking pink! 

Fuchsia...magenta....whatever you want to call it, it is quite a color. Mix it with sleek black and it's downright sexy. Add a pinch of black lace, a handful of glittering crystals, a truckload of ostrich feathers, strings of pretty pearls, and while you're at it, a couple of corseted courtesans, and you've got a birthday party that will please even the most stiff-lipped of guests. 

Burlesque is clearly having a moment, and we couldn't help but seize it. 
Boy, was this was one heck of a birthday party!







Classic Modern Castle Wedding

by Tuscany Flowers in , , , , , , , , , , , ,


This wedding at the Castello di Vincigliata actually took a little bit more effort than usual to pull off. Why, you ask? Well, the beautiful bride and groom requested to have both the ceremony and the dinner in the same courtyard! And so our fantastic team completely change scenery during cocktail hour, all without any of the guests knowing a thing! The change-up was a success and as you can see, it was well worth the extra elbow grease! 


The ceremony includes an antique stone and iron chuppah completely covered with cascading flowers and greenery, including stephanotis, and the entire stone-floored courtyard was topped with grass. The dinner centerpieces were a mix of classic and modern, yet thoroughly elegant. Hope you enjoy!

Art, Architecture and....Flowers!

by Tuscany Flowers in , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


Buongiorno! Today we have a group of events in prestigious locations around Florence and Venice. 

All of the decor works beautifully to highlight the characteristics of each location, like the black and white marble windows of a Renaissance landmark reflected in the striped table linens, or the colors of the gorgeous frescoes echoed in the flowers. Chic lamps offer a modern twist, providing light in a space that restricts the use of candles, so as to not damage the priceless artwork. Olive trees fill a raw, brick-covered space, while sunset colored ranunculus and fresh herbs create a sense of warmth and the promise of spring. 

Turning the tables on traditional art theory, where nature inspires art and architecture, this time it's architecture that inspires!













Fairy Tale Wedding in Florence

by Tuscany Flowers in , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


This wedding at Villa Cora can only be described as pure "fairy tale". The bride, like a princess. The flowers - royal purples, sweet lavenders and lilacs, pure white, with just a touch of the palest pink. Crystal hurricanes and mercury glass votives sparkled in the candlelight and.....everyone lived happily ever after. 









Classic Romance

Spring, if we're not mistaken, means pastels. Pale, delicate, romantic....blush, lilac, mint, creamy yellow...it's pastel paradise. Below is a wedding that is the perfect mix of pretty pinks and creams, with a touch of pale lilac. It's classic and romantic, and we like it!













Pretty in Pink

Happy Spring to all! I know, it is still very cold in most parts of the world, so let's bring a little wedding loveliness, shall we? Here is a summer wedding that can best be described as pretty. Really really pretty. It's so garden-chic, peony-perfect and herby-fresh, we just love it!







Ciao for now!



Happy Halloween!

by Tuscany Flowers in , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


Happy Halloween to all of our readers! Today we bring you some fabulous ideas for non-traditional, elegant Halloween decor! Let's get started...

First off, it's not Halloween without pumpkins! We love using them all season long, mixed with rose hips, fall foliage and seasonal flowers. Candlelight is an absolute must for creating the right ambiance, so we used lots of votives and rusted bronze candelabras for this pretty autumnal table scape.




 ......

Next we have a gorgeous table using red flowers, crystal candelabras and juicy, blood-red fruit.






 Can't you see some seriously chic vampires feasting at this table? Probably not on the fruit, though....

......

This next series of images was taken at a private dinner in an ancient deconsecrated Tuscan church...using the original altar and pews as the table and seating....super spooky!

Add tons of candles, burgundy clematis trailing over everything like overgrown vines and juicy red pomegranates and you've got yourself a very "seance-ready" atmosphere!






......

Finally, a stunning table inspired by Miss Havisham, the wealthy spinster in Charles Dickens' Great Expectations. The bride had a very clear idea of the decor for her wedding, describing her vision as "a table that has been there for 100 years" and specifically citing the heiress' decaying mansion as inspiration.

This was not a "Halloween" wedding exactly, but the idea could certainly be used as a gorgeously ghostly banquette, don't you think? Especially with the touches of deep, blood red...









Have a frightfully fun Halloween everyone and stay safe!
