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!

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!
















Beautiful Tuscan Style Wedding

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


Hello, ciao, buongiorno!

Today we have a fall wedding filled with beautiful details and natural Tuscan charm. 

The wedding took place at Villa Mangiacane.

The main theme was pomegranates, and this motif was used throughout the decor. Each of the tables were named after a type of fall fruit and as you can see, the same fruit was used within the centerpiece. 

And let's not forget the ceremony decor that seems to blend in seamlessly with the surroundings - we just love all the little details that make this wedding personal and chic. 





















Happy Halloween!

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!

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!
Ciao for now!


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...
