This is (luckily!) a very busy time of the year for wedding planners and flower designers, and nothing beats the feeling of looking around you and seeing the venue of your next event all nicely decorated, ready for the party that is about to start.
Besides offering full and partial planning services, we also offer flower design, or full event design if we also take care of wedding stationery and other decorative details. There is no consulting fee for the basic flower design, as that is a separate part of our business. Clients who choose to have us plan their event or to let us design their invitations and stationery and in general, the look of their wedding or party as Boutique Events receive a discount on the flower arrangements from Fiori e Dintorni of course.
On July 2, we were in charge of the design for Cristian and Valentina’s fabulous cream and hot pink wedding through our Fiori e Dintorni. They had chosen the beautiful church of St. Francesco in Grosseto for their wedding ceremony and a great holiday farm in the countryside near where we are for their reception. We especially love this venue, because the owners are great and the views are stunning. You are surrounded by nothing but nature, and the place itself is quintessentially Tuscan.
They chose to have a buffet antipasto by the beautiful panoramic pool. The decorations we chose for that area were very simple, with white lanterns to decorate the olive trees, tall bunches of hot pink roses in crystal vases and white candles on the buffet table.
The buffet aperitivo was to be followed by a seated dinner in a large gazebo in the garden.
The bride and groom chose a mix of round and square tables for their guests, and a different table placed in the middle of the room for the two of them.
Each table was decorated with a centerpiece made with a candle surrounded by roses in a round crystal bowl. We were very proud of the result! Two menus were placed on each table, and as place holders, the bride and groom chose small bottles of soap bubbles in the shape of a little wedding cake.
The table of the bride and groom had different decorations: the same flowers but instead of crystal bowls we chose two tall crystal chandeliers.
Since there were several children, the bride and groom opted for a separate table for them. The centerpiece was a vase of… marshmallows! So cute!
The cutting of the cake was organized in a smaller gazebo in the garden.The view from there is simply breath-taking.
Wedding favours were also placed under the gazebo where the cutting of the cake was to take place. The bride and groom opted for a traditional bag of confetti decorated in their wedding colours.
And as usual a special thank you to the crew of Fiori e Dintorni! Lorella is the lady on the left!
And from us all, our best wishes to Cristian and Valentina for their life together!
