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!







Romantic Jane Austin-Style Wedding

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


Happy December! It is quite chilly here so we thought we'd bring you some warm thoughts, amid visions of sugarplums and bustling holiday preparations! 

Speaking of sugarplums, this wedding is as sweet as can be. Mixed blooms in pastel tones, silver julep cups and a sparkling chandelier suspended over the dinner tables, create a stunning scene right out of a Jane Austin novel!

The ceremony was super romantic as well, taking place upon a crumbling staircase of a Tuscan villa. Just pretty as can be!













Autumn Harvest

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!

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. 









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!

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!
