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. 
















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!
















Beautiful Tuscan Style Wedding

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 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!

Seaside Wedding

Ciao! Our sincere apologies for the long period of silence, but we have been so busy! The hustle and bustle of wedding season in Tuscany is winding down, so we can finally show you some of our most recent work.

What better way to mark the end of summer than with a gorgeous wedding by the sea? Marta & Marco were married on the beach in the seaside town of Piombino, in the province of Livorno, in Tuscany. They wanted to use colors like pale coral, sand and seaglass, and the wedding turned out to be dreamy, beachy and romantic. What do you all think? Feel free to leave your comments and click on the photos to enlarge!
