Green Wedding Design at Songbirds Consignment

Songbirds Consignment held their Wedding Show April 2 and DianaDigsDirt provided a wedding arbor to greet guests and brides with the “Green” theme.

Color palette of red, white and a hint of pink. The main flower swag was designed using actual plants to later be used in the landscape or pots. Red petunias and carnation annuals provided color with apple blossom and dogwood branches filling in the bare spaces. Just packed with flower power!

Magnolia and Cytisus branches added horizontal form to the swag.

 

Outdoor pots, hanging ivy and a bucket of freshly cut greenery finished off the design.

Magnolia Leaves within Wedding Flower Design

Magnolia foliage provides many design opportunities like; centerpieces, decor, corsages, boutonniere’s and more. Above, a magnolia leaf serves as the background for lavender and indian hawthorn berries.

Here is a Helleborus bloom held by a magnolia leaf.

This design element can be utilized in a number of ways. Individual magnolia leaves were inserted into an orange and filled with Helleborus flowers. If used as a centerpiece, this element could be grouped on a table and layered at various heights, hung from the ceiling with tea lights, or individually placed on event tables. Using a larger fruit like a cantaloupe would provide enough space to insert an actual flowering plant. Fill with bird sees and a tea light and give away to your guests at the end of your party.

   Magnolia branches make excellent decor for any party or wedding by gathering plant material with assorted textures to hang on chairs, columns or doors. Very affordable and easy to assemble.

A Saucer magnolia bloom was used as a boutonniere along with a dried grass plume from the landscape and a sprig of Scotch Broom.

The coconut here was unfinished, but magnolia leaves would have been placed at the base of the Amazon Mist grass to hide the soil and add coarse texture.

  Topiary is an expensive event decor, but could easily be created from your landscape foliage.

Schedule a consultation and let’s look at what your landscape could provide fjor “green” design.
