Centerpieces For My Daughter's Wedding Shower

Denise Moyse (Mom) Vernon Hills, IL
I had the opportunity to provide the flower arrangements for my daughter's wedding shower. With the help of a FiftyFlowers floral designer, and three kind friends, the whole experience was wonderful! I followed the directions for each type of flower, and all but one type continue not to disappoint (two days after the shower). FiftyFlowers worked with me to find a good solution for the disappointment I had because of the very sensitive El Aleli Peach that dropped many blooms. I used all of the flowers we ordered to make 10 floral arrangements, 1 large arrangement of hydrangea, and 9 small "mini" vases (actually were candle votives) with 1 hydrangea or 3 stems of cremons each. My sister-in-law ... opened up her home and held this shower for my daughter on a late March day in the Chicago area. I accepted delivery of all flowers on the day that FiftyFlowers recommended (on Thursday for a Sunday event). Prior to arranging the flowers, I was able to keep them protected from the freezing temperatures by storing them in our cars in the garage over night. The flowers opened up nicely while we arranged them in the warmth of the house. The FiftyFlowers designer did an excellent job recommending options to stay within my budget, yet still get the look I wanted. The guests at the shower were complimentary of the flowers, and some even said they thought a professional had done the arrangements! Well, none of us were ever in the flower business, but had fun seeing the stems come alive in the arrangements! Thank you to my dear friends who helped with the flowers, my sister-in-law for hosting the lovely shower, and the product and service from FiftyFlowers. Show more

Flowers Used for Denise Moyse's Arrangements

Salmon Pink Roses ( 50 Roses )

Used for: Centerpieces

Loved these! And their fragrance is so light and wonderful! Opened up nicely in time for the event and really added a pop of color to the arrangements.

Used for: Centerpieces

These were perfect for the aqua/blue color that my daughter wanted for the wedding shower colors. The blooms were very large and these flowers held up so nicely. Very impressive!

Used for: Centerpieces

Nice, hardy filler flower. Has many leaves on the stems, so allow extra time to clean these stems up, is a bit messy (drops petals), but otherwise very easy to work with.

Used for: Centerpieces

Nice greenery that added a light and airy addition to the arrangements. Best of all - easy to work with and not sensitive to hydration!

El Aleli Peach Flower ( 5 Bunches or 50 Stems )

Used for: Centerpieces

Color and flower aesthetic were perfect! Wish I could rate these higher, but they were very sensitive and I lost a lot of blooms between the middle of the stem and the very top which then made the stems very messy. But, called Fifty Flowers and they were very cooperative in finding a good solution to my disappointment in these flowers.
