#BouquetBreakdown - The "Alyssa"
So, we've decided, bouquet breakdowns are kinda our thing. We absolutely love flowers and talking about flowers. I suppose you could say, "well that's because you're a florist." While that is true we also have a small suspicion that you guys like them as well. We hope you at least find them entertaining and maybe even a little educational. This bouquet breakdown might be a little shorter than our other ones but none-the-less we LOVE this bouquet.
So why do we love this bouquet so much?
We find the "Alyssa" to be super elegant and timeless. This is the kind of bouquet that you'll look back at 30 years from now and think wow! I'm so glad I picked such a classic bouquet.
So what's in this bouquet?
You may be thinking hmmm that looks like just roses. Well, we do have some stunning roses in here but we also have a new kind of eucalyptus and lisianthus. But first, let's start off with those roses!
Quicksand Roses: Quicksand roses might be the most sought after wedding roses right now. They are best described as a nude or dusty champagne color with a hint of pale pink. These creamy stunning roses are sure to compliment any color palette and reflect the other color tones of the bouquet. Quicksand roses are grown in a variety of different countries and harvested from a ton of different farms. That means depending on which farm your roses come from, they could be more tan or sandy in color or more pinky. No matter which farm or county they come from they are sure to be a stunner. Quicksand roses are available year-round but being one of the most sought after roses they also carry a higher price tag. We give quicksand roses $$$$ out of $$$$$ on the expensive scale.
Secret Garden Roses: Secret garden roses might have the most misleading name. They are not garden roses at all. They, in fact, are just standard roses. However, they get their name for their stunning color and way the rose blooms. The secret garden rose has a 100% bloom aperture which means it will completely open up like a garden rose and expose the stunning peachy yellow core. The dusty light pink petals are a sure-fire match for any light mauve dress. If you can't get secret garden roses some other great options would be the menta rose or the faith rose. We give secret garden roses $$ out of $$$$$ on the expensive scale.
Blue Manhattan Roses: Blue manhattan roses are a standard rose in a stunning lavender shade. They have a large bloom size and if allowed to, they will open up to a 100% bloom aperture. These roses are typically imported from Columbia. Some great alternatives if the blue manhattan rose isn't available for order would be ocean song, moody blues, and avant garde. We give the blue manhattan rose $$ out of $$$$$ on the expensive scale.
White Lisianthus: Lisianthus is another one of our best-kept secrets when it comes to wedding flowers! Lisianthus is available in a huge spectrum of colors. Yes, even find those hard to get mauves, champagnes, and yellowy apricots. Lisianthus kind of remind us of spray roses in the way the fresh-cut blooms look. The tiny rosettes in the middle have the same shape as spray roses and open up to reveal a gorgeous center with tiny little stamens. This specific lisianthus is just a single white but some colors are also available is doubles with fun ruffly edges. Lisianthus are available year-round and we give them a $$$ out of $$$$$ on the expensive scale.
Parvifolia Eucalyptus: The new kid on the block when it comes to eucalyptus in our bouquet breakdowns! Parvifolia eucalyptus is another great variety of eucalyptus that gives a beautiful light green pop to a bouquet. It grows as a long stem multi-branch tree! Yes, a tree! A tree that can reach 35-45ft when fully mature. The elliptical shaped leaves of the parvifolia eucalyptus offer a dainty and feminine touch to the bouquet. Parvifolia Eucalyptus can be found year-round but during certain seasons the tips of the new growth will have a burgundy red tone to them. While it is not as common as the Silver Dollar Eucalyptus it is just as expensive if not more. For that reason, we give it a $$$ out of $$$$$ on the expensive scale.
