Wednesdays with Amy Floral– Linens and Spring Flowers–Harvey Designs Events, Savannah, Ga.

Every day, on the way to work, I drive by Oelschig’s sign and drool over the poppies growing in their planter.  Kurt has no idea how much restraint it takes to keep those poppies from going to someone’s wedding.   They would look great in the Anthropologie vase that I found to go with this linen.

BBJ Linen Carlisle Lamour

Love this floral linen from BBJ Linen for a retro garden party reception.  Paired with this vase from Anthropologie and a monochromatic floral arrangement of coral tulips, poppies or peonies.

I also found these stone flowers from Anthropologie that could be used for napkin rings or place card holders.

For an elegant modern look, I chose this black and white floral print from BBJ Linen.  The black vases from Jamali Garden with a bright monochromatic arrangement would pop against the black and white floral print.  Try hot pink, yellow or orange garden roses, fuchsia peonies, lime green spider mums, fuchsia anemones or hot pink hydrangeas for a sassy centerpiece.

Etsy is a great source for fun and funky wedding accessories.  Check out these fabric poppies that could be used as accents for napkins, place cards, favors, ring bearer pillows and flower girl baskets or pinned into hair designs.
