Island Time!

For this wedding ceremony site, Kimm Birkicht—co-founder and creative director of The Velvet Garden in Los Angeles—created islands of flowers around magnolia trees.

Off With Their Heads

Cut flower heads create a garland in this gorgeous table display by The Velvet Garden. “We used beautiful florals like peonies, sweet peas, roses and tulips in vintage golden goblets to create an ombre color palette from pale pink to burgundy,” Birkicht says.

Cascade of Tulips

Different species of green and white Dutch tulips create a lush garland on this tabletop.

And Air Plants Too!

“One of our brides wanted a statement bouquet that was soft and romantic, but still had a little edge,” Birkicht says. “To create that look, we used burgundy peonies, black bacarra, astrantia, blush ranunculus, English Garden roses, brunia berry and air plants.”

Gorgeous Glamelia

To make this glamelia, or giant rose, Birkicht strategically plated, wired and wrapped 250 white and pink O'Hara rose petals.

Try This At Home

To create a floral studio in your own home, Birkicht suggests “choosing a space in your home that has a water source nearby and a floor that can withstand flower product,” she says. For this bridal bouquet, she used coral peonies, orange dahlias and umbrella fern.

Take It Outside

If you don’t have space for an indoor floral studio, Birkicht suggests finding “a place in your garden that is shady and can fit a waterproof table and shelf for storing vases,” she says. This stout glass bowl holds 'Café au Lait' dahlias, bittersweet and strawflowers.

Statement Stems

At The Velvet Garden, blooming branches, peonies, tulips, clematis and maidenhair fern come together to create a true conversation piece arrangement.

Moss Like A Boss

Mood moss adds a lush look to this table, covered with white hydrangea, English garden roses, calla lilies, tulips and hosta leaves.

Runner Up

Made from purple vanda orchids, black calla lilies, red spray roses, dahlias, red tulips, pink phalaenopsis orchids, pink peonies and ranunculus, this gorgeous flower runner goes from light to dark down the table.

Branch Out

Birkicht sources from local flower markets, nurseries and craft stores for her arrangements, like this spring-inspired spread of French tulips, coral quince branches, white sweet pea, Queen Anne’s lace and garden roses.

Thinking Pink

Pink Parrot tulips play with coral peonies, viburnum, pink spray roses, English Garden roses, coral ranunculus and astrantia.

Table Stopper

Arranged in the style of a Dutch oil painting, ranunculus, dahlias, poppies and raspberries appear to tumble out of a silver vase.
