Ilana and David

That moment when you feel you are looking at something for the first time.

I literally gasped when I opened Brian Phillips folder in Drop Box today. It’s such a special thing, to work so closely with a small group of talented and loving people, and then to see it in photos is such a great reminder of why we love designing flowers so much. We just can’t express how much we loved designing the flowers for Ilana and David’s wedding this past November at the Fairmont Copley Plaza. Everything was so beautifully coordinated by Linnea and Tracy at Tangorra Wedding Planning. See for yourself how wonderfully amazing Brian Phillips Photography is.

Tips for the Bride and her Maids.

Our flower picks for brides with various styles and color palettes.

Bouquets sharing the same color palette, style and flower type. To distinguish to bride’s flowers from her bridesmaids, we play with the size making the girl’s bouquets slightly smaller. Photo by Hitched Studios.

A modern, summer wedding using different flowers for the bride and bridesmaids. Both the bride and bridesmaids shared a contemporary concept.

A play on color and flower type. These bouquets are timeless and modern. The peonies are a classic flower, with the coral color making a modern statement. The bridesmaid bouquet uses a modern flower and design in a classic white. Photo by William Tangorra Photography.

A coral vision in August

Happy October! It’s great to be back on the blogging front here at Tangerine Creations! We hope you’ve been having an inspiring fall so far. We had the pleasure of creating the flower arrangements for Leigh-Anne and Andre’s beautiful August wedding at the Wellesley M.A. College Club. We had such a wonderful time working with Leigh-Anne and Andre! The color palette of the bride’s bouquet was based on the vibrant yet soft and romantic hue of Coral. The bouquet was comprised of a lush combination of ranunculus, free spirit roses, mokara orchids, and coral dahlias. So lovely! The groom’s boutonniere was yellow ranunculus with a splash of green lemon leaf, or salal, for fun color pop and natural beauty.

Thank you to dreamlove wedding photography for providing the wonderful photos from that memorable day!

Thanks for reading! See you soon. xo.

Spring Flowers Class

Photos from our Spring Flowers class that took place at our studio last night.  We worked with hyacinths, French ranunculus, tulips, wax flowers, white Cherry blossom branches, and dianthus green.  Anastasia and I had so much fun with each participant, sharing our flower care tips and tricks to kick off the night!  It was so great to see all the beautiful arrangements from last night. Happy Spring!

A Bliss Feature!

How fresh is the new Bliss Celebrations Guide this year?  I love the color combinations florals and ombre cake design.  Please make sure to pick up a copy.  Among many amazing featured events, you will find two events we designed the flowers for you.

No real surprise here on why Dira and Hammad’s wedding is featured in Bliss this year.  Everything single detail was polished to the T in the ultra modern Institute of Contemporary Art.  Dira and Hammad love flowers and used each space in the museum as an opportunity to create their own special moments for their wedding.  Among many favorites, phalanopsis orchids took the stage as a central flower used in every room of their wedding.


The feature below is of a rehearsal dinner on the Rooftop at the Taj Boston.  This event sparkled with jewels and crystals, a lovely pairing for the white, green, blush and earthy tones used for flowers.  Dendrobium orchids, hydrangea, scabiosa pods and green cymbidiums were just some of the flowers used to make this event a timeless city soiree.
