Autumn Harvest

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


November is almost over and throughout the world people are celebrating autumn and the fall harvest. Holidays like Thanksgiving in the U.S. and olive festivals around Italy inspire us with warm colors, fruits and leaves, as well as feelings of togetherness and gratitude. What a perfect way to start the winter and the hectic holiday season. Happy harvest to you all. 
















Fifty Shades of Grey.....in Tuscany

Borgo Santo Pietro was the location for this three-day birthday extravaganza, including a lemon and herb BBQ, a vibrant red and orange dinner party and the main event - a Fifty Shades of Grey birthday gala. Quite a scandalous scene if you ask us, but super-chic nonetheless!

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!













A Study in Detail near Siena

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


So, let's get down to business here! This summer we created the floral decor for three stunning days of events organized for an intimate group of friends and family to celebrate an important birthday of a certain (very much) loved one. 

The events took place at Borgo San Felice near Siena, and each day was a fabulous study in detail. 

From an elegant, yet rustic dinner in tones of purples, with bunches of grapes heaving lusciously from rusted bowls, to country-style breakfasts and lunches, with stone pots and terra-cotta details. There was even a theatrical flower market, including actors in period costume casually strolling around the square as guests watched. It was a perfect example of how the smallest of details can create something truly special. 

Enjoy! And remember to click on the photos for a larger view!

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!



Country Chic Castle Wedding

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


Ciao to all! Sorry for the holdup, but we have been winding down the season and enjoying the beautiful fall weather here in Florence!

In June we had pleasure of working on a beautiful event in the gorgeous Castello di Brolio. The bride wanted a very natural mix of classic elegance and country chic, so we used lots of fresh, aromatic herbs, sweet peas and beautiful English roses. Here at Tuscany Flowers, we have exclusive access to over 1,000 types of locally grown Old English roses, which you may notice in the photos of our other work. You can really see and smell the difference!










We have lots more weddings lined up so check back soon!




Country Chic

This next wedding is country-chic at its absolute best- pretty, intimate and relaxed. The location was Villa Pipistrelli in Montestigliano, near Siena. They wanted the style to be very natural, as if they had made the decorations from their own home and garden. Take a look...














Gorgeous, right? Make sure to click on the photo for a larger image and feel free to leave us your comments!

Country Chic at the Four Seasons

Buongiorno a tutti! 

Apologies for not updating the blog in a timely fashion but we have been busy busy busy with all kinds of weddings and events! We would love to share a few highlights from the last few weeks that we think you all might enjoy, so have a look...

First up is a late-spring party in the pool area and garden of  the Four Seasons Florence. We used english roses, bleeding hearts and sweet peas in lovely, cheerful pinks. The mint green pots added a splash of color and fresh touch. Our white lanterns surrounded the area and lit up the edge of the gorgeous pool.







Another event, again at the Four Seasons - a country-chic style welcome dinner. Using aromatic herbs, olive trees, seasonal fruit and tones of soft purples and lavenders, the decor was intimate, casual but elegant, and enhanced the Tuscan feel of the area.








Next up in a bit, a handful of chic weddings at a popular castle location overlooking Florence...
