Well, August has kicked off…with lots of weddings as well at Flowers Washougal. Vibrant colors, deep purples, some soft pinks and lots of texture. Our brides are all over the board when it comes to trends! One trend is for sure…lots of texture. We call them ‘bits’ which can consist of pods, grasses, ferns, twigs…and so much more. But these ‘bits’ can really make a bouquet sing!
Some of our favs that we recommend to bride’s include poppy pods, echinaecia pods, black eyed susan centers, maidenhair fern, native grasses, billy balls, birch twigs, bark, moss, and scabiosa pods. But there are so many more things that we love to add in…given the freedom.(Our brides generally give us the freedom!) Oh yeah…and our gaurantee? They will be delightfully surprised on their wedding day!
We have been very busy this summer in the heat of wedding season. On point with last year, July has proven to be a very successful month for weddings in the Northwest. Beautiful weather and fabulous floral product definitely helps! Here are a few of our recent weddings. Enjoy the diversity of color and style trends!
This weekend we had two beautiful weddings staged around the deep rich color purple. Classics such as sweet peas and roses, freesia and lisianthus play beautifully together.
In our first wedding of the weekend, the bride carried a classic cream colored bouquet of ‘helga piaget’ garden roses, cream colored ‘vendela’ roses, hydrangea, miniature callas, sweet peas and freesia. Her attendants carried luscious bouquets of ‘vendela’ roses, purple trachelium, lavender freesia, hydrangea and deep purple sweet peas.
The wedding was held at Heathman Lodge. For her reception, the centerpieces included much wonderment. Tall pilsner vases were filled with lavish overstuffed arrangements of roses, hydrangea, plum dahlias, tulips, orchids, jasmine vine and clematis flowers. A truly whimsical organic setting was created for the reception!
Our second wedding of the day was held at Lac De Fleur Gardens in Washougal. A beautiful free form bouquet of roses, lilies, sweet peas, green hydrangea, calla lilies, and freesia was created. With our signature maiden hair fern and grasses, the bouquet was breathtaking.
The girls carried bouquets of luscious flowers in soft neutral colors. Roses, orchids, hydrangea, freesia and lisianthus created these stunningly simple clutch-style bouquets. Touches of maidenhair fern and ladies mantle softened the overall effect beautifully.
Stunning flowers were created for a very special customer in our store recently. Sheryl’s grand daughter got married! With stunning flowers such as phalaenopsis orchids, lilies, hydrangea, freesia, roses and so much more…it was really a luscious effect! Dramatic tones of ruby, burgundy, russett, and scarlet filled the reception.
Once in a while, team FW gets a project that might be considered out of the realm of a flower shop’s regular duties…But not to us! We welcome all the quirky ‘odd requests’ with excitement, pouring into them creativity and life. This last week, we were faced with a ‘pumpkin carving party’ yard project.
A good customer came to us and requested a festive scene fit for all the ghosty and gobliny kids of the neighborhood to exercise their creative pumpkin wielding. We created a six-foot scarecrow with lighting pumpkin head, a ‘trick or treat’ pumpkin totem of stacked pumpkins and bittersweet, and a patch with beautiful autumn mums, corn, millet, apples, pumpkins, and gourds. We sure had fun doing it. And everyone seemed to enjoy it.
Happy Halloween and Pumpkin carving Nielsen Family!!

We meet with so many bride’s in the spring, that we are almost nonchalant about it. Summer is a distant concept. Our weddings are “down-the-road.” Certainly, we understand and value each and every bride that entrusts us with her flowers to complete the day that has taken her hours upon hours of planning and endless details. We have, as well, spent hours upon hours working with our growers and wholesalers, purchased ribbon in just the right shade of purple, babied roses and other flowers to the perfect stage, and communicated with our bride’s almost more than our own family members. But, it’s all worth it.
We finally know, after all the sweat and stress of making sure everything is just right, that we have done our job. We finally understand just how important our role is when we see our bride’s faces on their special day. Many, many times, we see our brides begin to tear up, give us a gigantic hug, and just plan gloat about “my florist” to all of their family and wedding party. We value each and every bride that comes to us, trusts us and gives us a little creative freedom to show them what we can do. Here are a few of our special bride’s bouquets from the past month. Enjoy!
My oh my, the last few weeks, we have had some weddings. Aside from heading to San Francisco…There have been tons of weddings. We do only take 3 a weekend. We are not the flower shop that wants more more more. We take pride in our work and provide our customers with quality, attention to detail and care. That being said, there are lots to show…Enjoy!
