Mint and peach - I just love this color combination. As you might have read in my first Colors of Colina entry, I tell Colina the overall color theme of the bouquet that I'm going to make, and she wears something complementary. I quite like how lovely this color pairing turned out - soft and beautiful.
There is simply so much room to let your imagination and creativity explode when you choose color as the theme for your project. The possibilities are almost endless, and you can find a unique element to incorporate every time. For me, the unique element(s) of this bouquet are many, but if I had to pick just one it would be the dates. I love the yellow color tone and I think it ties together the whole bouquet in conjunction with Colina's mint-colored dress.
When I make a bouquet I want to "wow" people with it, so I always strive to use unique combinations of flowers and foliage that I think stand out from the "everyday" bouquet.
Flowers: orchid, strawberry tree, dates, potato vine, garden rose, carnation, coleus
Colina, her bouquet, and the lion.
This knit-covered pole was such an awesome surprise, and it matched Colina's dress perfectly - whoever made that colorful cover was quite retro and we thank them!
