Boho Flower Inspiration for your Bridesmaids

Well,well, well, if it isn’t the bride to be? Are you ready for your big day? If you want your wedding to be unique with memorable details, bohemian type of wedding is the type for you. In modern usage, this term applies to people who are living unconventional and artistic lives. The original Bohemians were living in central Europe, and had a different name: gypsyes. Of course, a lot of people find gypsy girls incredibly sexy and interesting, since they don’t care about fashion and trends and have their own style. With this style, I’m sorry my fellow bride, there is absolutely no way that bridesmaids dresses can be ugly. The tradition hated by the bridesmaids for generations is over. Take notes.



When it comes to boho inspired hair, the options are limitless. It can go from braids to incredibly complicated flower shaped buns. It al depends on the dresses though. For example, if you decide that you want your bridesmaids to have colorful and eye catching dresses, the simple long braided crown, a ponytail should or a half up bun do the trick. If you, on the other hand, decide that you want them to wear white dresses like you, then you can go crazy with the hair. They can have rope braids, messy updos, multibraids or even boho braids together with loose waves. Of course, flowers are always welcome in the hair-the more the better. There are also multiple ways you can add them. You can tuck them directly in the hair or you can make some floral crowns. Be careful though, don’t make it to cluttery . You don’t want your bridesmaids to look like a walking bouquets.



This really depends on what you like. The beauty of boho is that there really is no rules for combining things. You can match the flowers with the dresses, but on the other hand you can also make an absolute contrast with them. For example, if your bridesmaids are wearing white dresses, you can give them bouquets of white roses, but you can also give them colorful crazy bouquets that you yourself (with zero experience in bouquet designing) made.



And here comes the most fun part of them all. The dresses. You see, a lot of fun bridesmaid dresses can be found in various boho inspired options. It is all about the lace, the flowers and flowy sleeves. White lace ones are a great choice since they add that romantic, pure and also just a little bit childish glow in everything. It will be like you are in the middle of a white fairytale. The floral ones are bringing that happy and also childish impression, where you can’t look at them without a smile on your face. It is amazing what a nicely designed piece of clothing can do.



The same goes for shoes like for the bouquets – there are no rules. Your bridesmaid can have a matching dress and sandals, but on the other hand she can also wear some leather boots. It all depends on what you like, what they like, and, of course, weather conditions.

So there you have it, your little boho wedding guide. I hope it was helpful and that it gave you some ideas. One thing is sure – your wedding will definitely be unique. I wish you and your lucky man a happy marrige and long life together.

5 Easy Ways to Celebrate Canada Day… Right in Your Backyard!

With Canada Day around the corner, we Canadians are getting ready for the first long weekend of the summer! The July long weekend means so many wonderful things: warm and sunny weather, blossomed summer flowers, and celebrations to show our pride in Canada and in being Canadian.

We have a few ideas on how to show our Canadian pride this long weekend as we celebrate Canada Day:

1. Backyard party

Canada Day falls right at the start of summer, which (generally) means great weather! This is the perfect opportunity to invite friends over for a backyard BBQ. Outdoor dinners are tons of fun for the whole family, and it doesn’t break the bank. Ask your guests to bring something to contribute and make it a potluck! There’s nothing better than being with friends and family on the long weekend.

2. Canada Day arts and crafts

Check out our Canada Day Pinterest board for ideas on what to do this long weekend for crafts, food and more. Here’s one great idea: paint two red vertical lines on a piece of white paper or bristol board, separating it into thirds, and paint the outer blocks red. Instead of a maple leaf, have the kids make a red handprint in the centre white block of the bristol board to create personalized Canadian flags!

3. Decorate for Canada Day

Canada Day Craft Mason JarsIf you’re having people over or not for Canada Day, show your patriotism by decorating your house and backyard with red and white! Use red and white paint and glitter to decorate mason jars. You can use these as holders for your cutlery or as vases for patriotic red and white flowers to make Canada Day themed centrepieces! Decorate your backyard or your house with string lights and hanging pots of summer flowers, red table cloths and napkins.

4. Explore

You don’t have to go far to discover the beauty of this country. In almost every town or city, there are hiking paths, bike trails and parks to walk around and enjoy the Canadian summer weather and nature. Do a quick search to find where you can explore in your town this long weekend. Many communities will also organize events to celebrate Canada Day.

Flowers and Gifts for Men

Father’s Day is Sunday June 19th – how will you show your appreciation for the Fathers in your life?

So many men are difficult to buy for. They either say they do not need anything, or you are trying to get a gift for a man that already has everything.

If this sounds like your dad, think outside the box this year and give him the gift of flowers. Flowers or a planter is the perfect way to let dad know you’re thinking about him on Father’s Day. The great thing about gifting Father’s Day flowers for dad is that you can get them sent right to his door. This is a great gift option especially if you won’t be able to see him on Father’s Day, but want to let him know you’re thinking of him.

A custom written card makes the gift personal and thoughtful, as you can write anything that will be meaningful to dad.

We have crafted several arrangements and planters that are perfect flowers for men, including flower arrangements that are displayed in a truck, boat or a mug.

For those who love to garden, the Burlington Horticultural Society is there to support your passion.

Burlington Horticultural Society Flower Show

The first June meeting the Burlington Horticultural Society is having is also a Flower Show open to the public. This annual flower show invites local horticulturalists – both aspiring and seasoned – to enter their flowers into the show to be recognized for their green thumbs and beautifully grown flora. This gathering of locally grown flowers draws Burlington residents to the show to admire and enjoy. This will be a night for admiring local flowers and learning a little something as well, about flowers and gardens and how they grow in a different part of the world.

The guest speaker this year is Virginia Jameson, giving a talk on Gardens of Switzerland, which are numerous and spectacular.

As flower enthusiasts ourselves at Brant Florist, we are delighted that spring and summer flowers are so joyously and publicly celebrated locally in our town as well as around the world. Among their many benefits, flowers bring people together! We’re excited to come together around flowers in Burlington for this year’s Flower Show in June.

The Burlington Horticultural Flower Show takes place on June 8, 2016 at the Burlington Seniors’ Centre – 2285 New St. Burlington, Ontario from 7:30pm-10:00pm.
