Green With Envy: Harvey Designs, Event and Floral Design, Savannah Georgia

When selecting a neutral color for their wedding, brides often gravitate towards white and ivory palettes. Why not, it is a totally logical leap. However, utilizing the small selection of green flowers available, one can achieve the same affect as using white or ivory keeping color. Not only does green work wonderfully as an accent color, but it can also stand alone to create a striking arrangement.

By using green hydrangea and hypericum berries mixed with seeded eucalyptus, bear grass and various greenery, this bride was able to use a minimal amount of gentle color in the blue of the thistle and sheer ribbon. Even with minimal use, the blue popped beautifully.

This bouquet of green standard calla lilies is a gentle, earthy way to use color in your bouquet. The chocolate satin ribbon with pearl pins accents the earthiness while elevating the level of  subtle sophistication.

The creamy green hue of the hydrangea combines elegantly with the green of the cymbidium orchids and the ivory of the dahlias. While the champagne satin ribbons and the wine colored center of the orchid play off of each other perfectly.

In the exquisite Mansion On Forsyth Park, beautiful artwork from both local and national artists plays an impressive role in the decor of the hotel. The artwork is breathtaking and colorful. The private dining room upstairs is decorated with this artwork and therefore needs little in the way of additional color. By using variegated ti leaves, green calla lilies and yellow vanda orchids, a floral interest is added to the table without detracting from the artwork.
