Floral Arches & Chuppahs Design Class

Hi Flower Friends!

About a week and a half ago I taught a Chuppah and Arch decorating class here at my home & property in northern Washington State. The girls and I had a fabulous time together, we spent 8 hours out in the yard flowering up 2 Chuppahs and 2 Arches!
Thought I’d share some of the images with all of you..

First, the Rustic Chuppah! This one was gorgeous, we used a variety of foliages – Begonia, Ninebark, Sweetpea Vines, Feather Acacia, Ferns, Salmon Berry, Beech and Cotinus. We added in only two flowers! White Astilbe and Panda Anemones. The final Chuppah design was just gorgeous –

Next we moved onto the WildRose Chuppah; it was a little bit rustic, a little touch modern, very gardeny. We used just a few elements in this design – Italian Ruscus, Olive Foliage, long branches of wild roses and peonies-

I spiced it up with the next floral arch I had planned for the workshop – with this one we went modern & bright! Apple green hydrangeas and roses with pops of coral peonies, coral poppies, and coral godetia with salmonberry foliage and ferns. We finished it off with bright coral fabric draping. Becca of B Jones Photography stopped by while we were working on this arch and she took a few photos for us –

I snapped this photo of our finished floral arch design.

I didn’t get any photos of the fourth arch, by then the girls and I were working hard to get our last project done and there was no time for photos.
I’ve had a few people ask if I’ll be teaching another Chuppah & Floral Arch Workshop and the answer is YES! I just scheduled a Fall workshop date, check it out & register here – {Design Workshops}
It’s going to be a good one — all fall inspired with lots of dahlias!! Hope you can join us!

  2. The texture on that woodland chuppah is out of control – so beautiful!
