Are you tired of beautiful wedding flower ideas yet? Good. Neither are we! We’re excited to share stunning floral inspiration from a recent workshop, Farm and Forage hosted by Bows & Arrows Flowers. We love the organic design style of these bouquets, as it really allows the flowers to show off their own unique beauty.

Another favorite design idea is the lush, yet still casual, garland centrepieces. Made with intertwined vines, the shape and texture this creates on the guest tables is certainly enviable. If you love this look, view more of our favorite garlands here.

More from Bows and Arrows’ Alicia Rico:

“This two-day intensive floral workshop was devoted to the beauty of Spring that surrounds us. Attendees worked with florals imported from Holland as well as local Dallas blooms straight from the farm. 

On day one, we visited a flower farm and walked among seasonal Texas flora, harvesting what we then used in our own designs. We got a glimpse into the farmer lifestyle and saw a working flower farm first hand. After foraging poppies, ranunculus, clematis, sugar snap peas, anemone, and iris, to name a few, we all sat down for a high tea lunch with fresh meringues and scones. The afternoon was spent making floral headpieces and bridal bouquets. Each of the students worked with our stylist, Kylie Swanson to style their work on figure with our ethereal model. Heather Hawkins photographed the students work not only capturing the blooms but a feeling and an environment. 

Our second day was spent in the Bows + Arrows design studio crafting centerpieces and large scale arrangements. We collaboratively set the table with a casual loose garland of vines and showed students how we create, style and capture a tablescape. To wrap up a floral filled experience, we took all attendees centerpieces to a fancy southern fried finale dinner at Sissy’s Southern Kitchen and enjoyed deviled eggs, fried chicken, juleps and much more!”

I had a blast helping Bows and Arrows with this shoot! I was their intern and it was awesome to see all the magic Alicia could make with a few vines we foraged!
