What a wedding! We were eagerly anticipating the wedding of Pitch Perfect stars Anna Camp and Skylar Astin and we were not disappointed in the least! The handsome due was hitched on Saturday September 10 at the gorgeous Sunstone Winery in Santa Ynez, California. Anna looked pretty perfect herself in a Reem Acra gown, while Skylar was handsome in his Ermenegildo Zegna tuxedo.

The details were superb! And the flowers are truly drool worthy, designed by Lotus and Lily Floral. There were flowers, flowers and more flowers, which apparently Anna can’t get enough of. We loved this amazing backdrop of assorted pastel blooms and greenery used to frame the guest welcome sign.We also adored the vine and flower covered wedding arch, the beautiful romantic table settings, and this stunning and highly romantic vignette of flowers peeking out of a vintage dresser (swoon)!

The ceremony took place outdoors, beneath a stunning floral arch, and more mixed greens were used to accent the aisle. If you would like your own floral arch it’s not out of reach! Order bulk flowers and DIY a version yourself. Check out our Floral Backdrops blog to learn more. The couples’ Puggle, Rocky, did duty as ring bearer.

A cocktail hour followed, and then guests moved to the reception area which was adorned by small lights. A similar mix of pastel flowers adorned the tables, in soft  and romantic shades of peach, pink and lavender. Apparently the couple was inspired by the natural beauty of a sunset and wanted colors in similar shades. They incorporated these shades into every aspect of their wedding from the invitations to the linens. The flowers on the tables were absolutely superb!

We LOVED this simple but elegant escort presentation! Grab this idea and try it for your own event; you can even find accessible bud vases at the local dollar store, and buy your roses in bulk from a reputable online vendor such as BunchesDIrect.

These beautiful accents wee enjoyed by about 100 guests, including fellow cast mates Rebel Wilson, Elizabeth Banks and Brittany Snow, who served as bridesmaid. After sunset, the after party took pace down in the caves of the winery, which was transformed into a disco complete with red lights and disco balls.

Anna and Josh looked ecstatically happy after their very special day, and we also love yet another look at her amazing pink, lavender and peach roses.

We wish them all the best! .

If you are planning a wedding or event, choosing the color scheme is likely to be one of your earliest decisions. Choosing your flowers will also be a key step. There is little else that has the same visual impact as flowers, which can dress the tables, the ceremony, the venue and enhance your overall theme and experience. Flowers can be one of the best ways to support the color scheme you have selected. But what colors coordinate with best results?

To help you we’ve selected some of the most popular and beautiful color combinations for events, and matched them with the our top flower picks. Some are contemporary; most are timeless. Read on and see which one inspires you most!

Navy Blue and White

You can’t go wrong with this classic and timeless pairing! Navy and white will always look crisp, chic and elegant. It works in traditional settings (think navy and white china urns filled with sophisticated white roses) or in more casual nautical or beach themes.

Choose blue and white or blue vases or containers, and fill with white blooms such as roses, white hydrangea, stephanotis, spider mums, alstroemeria, orchids, baby’s breath or calla lilies. Or let the flowers be your “something blue” and opt for blue iris or blue hydrangea.

Pink, Gray, Cream

This combination works for any season. It is very elegant and current, soft and tasteful. It’s also a lovely way to balance out more traditionally masculine and feminine colors. The coolness of the gray is a perfect balance for the delicate warmth of the pink. . This choice would work well in either traditional or streamlined events. Cream or pink roses would work beautifully with this combo, or even try bronze fuji spider mums to give a modern textural edge to this soft palette.

Yellow and Purple

These colors are complementary, coordinating but with high contrast, so combining them creates vibrancy, warmth, energy and a more modern vibe. This color combo would work well in a variety of settings, from indoor chic to outdoor farmyard. Try beautiful purple and yellow chrysanthemums,or  purple alstroemeria with yellow roses for a vivid and pleasing combo.

Pink Twinkle by BunchesDirect

Pink, Pink and more Pink

Keep this color scheme from getting dull or too monochromatic by using varied shades of pink. Any shade of pink plays well with its other pink family members, from hot pink, to pale blush, to deep rose. This is a perfect combo for romantic weddings with a traditional vibe but can be adapted to any setting. Choose flowers like roses, garden roses, peonies, lilies, or ranunculus. for a truly dreamy combination.

Red and Pink

Yes, these colors do go together! This combo creates a bold effect that takes pink up a notch from its soft and dreamy aspect. Perfect (of course) for those of you who love romance with a  more modern edge, or for a Valentines’ Day wedding or event. Try pink dahlias or even pink anenomes with red roses, or pink roses with red ranunculus.

Orange and Red

Perfect for late summer or fall events! This color makes us think of warm August days, or the richness of autumn leaves. It creates energy and vibrance. It would also work well for tropical or beach-themed weddings. Try orange asiatic lilies, red roses or orange carnations in this vibrant look.

Need inspiration for your wedding or event flowers? If you are a DIY type and would love to tackle your flowers personally, there are a myriad of easy options for you. One of the hottest trends is to “mix and match” your vases and blooms, and this is perfect for the DIY bride or event planner!

While many brides and event planners adore uniformity, there is no hard and fast rule that says you need one centerpiece in the middle of your table, and that all your vases and flower types should be the same. The “mix and match” trend incorporates a selection of your favorite blooms. Use the same vases or mix those up too. Make sure they still “match” either by color choice, vase choice, or shape and the array will work.

This approach is extremely flexible for your budget as well, letting you pick as many or as few blooms as you would like. If you aren’t sure which blooms will go together, let your experienced floral consultant guide you. Buying in bulk will save you lots of money also!

Above: These vases may be a bit different in shape but they are visually cohesive due to their glass construction. This beautiful mix of spring flowers such a pink peonies, iris, and waxflower or stock coordinates into a lovely display for dining or to accent a buffet or seating card table. Pink and purples work well together, so feel free to select your faves as a mix of these will “match” and still be pleasing to the eye.

This floral display uses an assortment of different vases. You can create this look by covering mason jars or plain vases with burlap, twine or lace from the craft store. This mix of blooms includes roses, dahlias, and limonium. The “mix and match” trend works especially well for a boho or shabby chic event! It can help create a fresh-from-the-garden look that also gives a more casual or vintage vibe.

Ranunculus mixes well with tulips and waxflower in pastel colors for this eclectic mix at an outdoor event. Mixing the heights of the containers creates visual interest.

The trend is still adaptable to more formal events! Another way to incorporate this look is to mix up the types of flowers, but keep the color consistent, Here, a mix of white blooms works beautifully to create a unique and interesting display at the head table. Consider lilies, stephanotis, roses, and alstroemeria for an interesting blend of blooms.

Another excellent mix of white flowers: bells of ireland, hydrangea and calla lilies (as shown left). The color consistency supports the slightly more formal setting, while the mix of blooms keeps things from being too stuffy or traditional.

Create a more exotic vibe by using orange as the unifying color. Mix it up by choosing a variety of vases and containers, in different heights. Try flowers like asiatic lilies, gerbera daisies, or protea for some vivid visual punch.

Don’t restrict the “mixing and matching” to just the flowers and vases! Incorporate some of your other favorite accessories to create very unique and memorable floral displays for your tables. Even with this mix of items, the match comes fro the use of mercury glass and silver along with the peach and cream flowers.

Pick an assortment of your favorite blooms and containers and enjoy the possibilities! Your friendly floral consultant can advise you how much of each bloom you will need to create your visual masterpiece. Best of all, your event flowers will be unlike anyone else’s!

Carnations are so beautiful and yet are often undervalued for their ability to enhance a bouquet or table arrangement. We have no idea why! Their sweet ruffled petals add true elegance, while being long lasting and surprisingly hearty after cutting. They come in a myriad of wonderful colors that can coordinate with many themes and palettes.Their general hardiness also means they work well in DIY creations too, like pomander balls, garlands and floral accent walls.

Alstreomeria, also known as Peruvian lilies, are one of the most delicate and lovely flower choices and yet are surprisingly affordable. Their sweet, heart-shaped petals add romance and delicacy to any bouquet or centerpiece. They come in several popular colors and have an interesting two-toned variation that adds depth and interest.

Baby’s Breath

Baby’s Breath, or Gypsophilia, is a wonderfully airy and beautiful flower that can create amazing cloud-like effects for table and venue decorating as well as for bridal bouquets. Most people think of it in white, but it does also come in soft pink. It can be combined with other romantic flowers such as roses or lilies, but don’t overlook its impact when used all on its own.

Many of us simply call them “mums,” to refer to these beautiful and generous blooms. Chrysanthemums come in rich colors and have a full, exotic appearance that can lend a lot of impact and texture to bouquets and arrangements. They can be combined with other flowers for an “elegant” presentation or kept minimal and vivid for a more rustic or informal event.

Cheerfully Divine Centerpiece

There is little else to match the lovely daisy for sweetness, innocence and cheerful beauty. Daisies have been a cherished flower for centuries and have long held romantic connotations. They are especially suited to informal events and outdoor venues, such as barn or beach, and to themes like boho chic or rustic. Use them in different colors to further enhance your decorating.

Daisy Day Bouquet


Roses spell romance, elegance, and distinction. They are one of the most gorgeous flowers that work for any occasion, and if you purchase from a reputable online vendor (like BunchesDirect), roses are surprisingly affordable!

If you want to keep things soft, feminine and a bit more traditional, pairing pink flowers with cream and white blooms is the perfect way to infuse your venue with timeless romance. Choosing a more traditional container will also help keep things elegant with this color scheme. Try a mix of white hydrangeas, pink asiatic lilies, and lovely pink roses for a beautiful combination. Soft pink peonies or pink tulips would also be good choices if this is the feel you are going for with your pink themed event.
