With the recent (almost) Royal Wedding between Pippa Middleton and James Matthews, there is not a better time to assess flower trends in royal weddings. At Brown Floral, we look at wedding trends, but more importantly work with exactly what our brides want for flowers on their special day. From Victoria and Albert in 1840 to Kate and William in 2011, and even to Pippa and James earlier this month, there is one trend that transcends the actual type of flowers used in British royal weddings: a pure white bouquet with hints of green foliage.
We’re about to enter Fall, and pregnant women everywhere are praising the heavens that they survived the hot Summer months of pregnancy and are about to meet their new babies. As your friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers prepare for their new bundles of joy to enter the world, it’s time to start thinking about what you’ll get them for the birth day. While it is customary at baby showers to give new parents more practical gifts – like diapers, strollers, onesies, and wipes – often times the only gift a new mother receives after hours and hours of pushing is the new baby itself – which of course is the most amazing gift of all. But also, when you’ve gone through such a strenuous life event and are trying to take care of a screaming, poopy, wiggly new human, sometimes you could use a bit of a pick-me-up to just remind you that someone is thinking about you.

Flowers and bees go hand in hand. No, this doesn’t mean that your delivery from Brown Floral will contain a handful of bees – we promise! But bees and flowers share a symbiotic relationship that help each other thrive. Here’s how it all goes down: Bees fly from flower to flower to gather nectar to make honey. When they land on a flower, pollen gets stuck to the tiny hairs on their bodies. This pollen then gets deposited onto the next flower they visit, pollinating the flower and allowing it to reproduce, which means for flowers for bees, and so forth.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a bouquet or a special flower delivery is worth a million. Whether you are trying to express love, gratitude, sympathy, or just trying to make someone smile, flowers are the perfect way to do so. But not all flowers are created equal. We’ve compiled a list of 10 flowers that can be used to say something special to your loved ones. (more…)
The vision for this beautiful Salt Lake City Winder wedding in March was whimsical winter with a rustic elegant feel. We were thrilled with how turned out, and were delighted to see that vision become a reality!
Admit it, we are all guilty of doing it at one point or another… involuntary plant-slaughter. You buy some low maintenance plants that not even the brownest thumb could kill, pot them with only the purist of intentions, and then GASP! How could this be?! You managed to kill a plant that almost is not even capable of being killed. Take heart friends, we are here to show you the error of your ways, and paint that thumb green after all.
