There are so many more lovely zinnia images to share! I really do feel that this is one under-rated wedding flower!
I will get straight to it…
These look almost like edible arrangements from a farmer’s market – and it’s not really a wonder since they’re grown on a sustainable farm! I don’t know what the tan whispies are on that top arrangement, but I must find out, they’re so cool…Florist friends, please help! ; ) These are from Love N Fresh Flowers, the farm in Philadelphia that I posted about last week. They seem to grow zinnias as a primary flower there.
I think all of these are really cool – mixed colored zinnias are the main focal flower in all of them, but with some white, herby mix ins to keep things really loose and casual. The top and lower left images are from NYC based Poppies & Posies, whose work I love! And on the bottom left, a beautiful bouquet from Springfield’s Vermont Country Flowers.
You don’t normally see zinnias in pastel arrangements, but these pale limey green guys mix right in with super feminine peachy roses for a really fresh look. These are from Sugar Magnolias (motto? Nature Composed), which is in Madison Virginia, right outside of Charlotesville. They use mostly local, sustainably farmed flowers as well. It’s more than a trend!
I LOVE how they look all by themselves, in white milk glass. The photo on the left is from The Knot, and on the right we have another hit from Love N Fresh Flowers!
And last but definately not least, we have some zinnias in filled vases (ding!), with fruit (ding ding!) and in a non typical, unusual container (ding, ding, ding!):
That first photo was from wedding florist Elisabeth Zemetis of Blush Floral Design’s own rehearsal dinner. Brilliant. She’s out of Connecticut, by the way. Below left is from Let’s Entertain (cute party blog!), and right from Chiana Wedding Flowers.
