Flowers - 5 Bouquets as close as possible while being economical, to this one.  1 big for the bride & 4 smaller.  xoxo
 Brides Bouquet  and 4 smaller bouquets, 3 for BridesMaids & one to throw!  xoxo
No Callalilies - but the colors like this one.  Red ribbon for the Bride and White/Cream for the 3 brides maids, the one to throw should be Red Ribbon like the Bride
 


Here is Aunt Jil's dry run to duplicate this bouquet, with Cathy from http://www.lindengardens.com
It is amazing how the camera changes the colors of things.  In the bottom Photograph, one of the Peach Roses almost looks yellow in this - however they are all a beautiful peach
the carnation looks pink however it was exactly the same peach color as the roses.  The top picture looks more like the actual colors.
but the bottom pictures shows more detail.  We replaced the expensive Calla lilies with beautiful dark peach roses, which look beautiful and smell great.
I learned a lot working with Cathy yesterday.  Ordering is interesting --- which you do to the best of your ability then you create
as closely as possible - but the flowers and colors and shades dictate how the creation comes together.
The feathery maroon/green was used in the prototype because the round leaf maroon leaves had not arrived yet.  
And the seeds will be added later.  xoxo



     

We could have a Larger Basket for the Wedding Envelopes from Guests???

   Ring Bearer
          Pillow with Nanna V's Doiley
          Aunt Jilly still working on the Pillow
   Ushers - Boutonnieres will have a white rose or Red Rose - Isabella will decide
      Right is a Simple One with just a rose (picture this with a White Rose)

Boutiners will just be the 30-30 shell and a white rose - where you see the white golf tee, place-holder.
