During the roaring ’20s, the parties were bigger, the pace was faster, the shows were broader and the bouquets were blinglicious! This captivating, vintage-inspired bouquet features beautiful textures. Old glam elements of rhinestones and brooches from another era create a great focal point in the design. Dynamic lines of diamond fabric channel a rhythmic harmony bringing back the essence of the old jazz halls. Creating motion and length, cascading elements of gems and jewels add line and form to the design. Feathers inspired by flirtatious flappers add texture creating a shelter over the design, and all that jazz.
Flowers and Materials Featured: Hydrangeas, Roses, Spray Roses, Freesia, Mini Callas, Rhinestones, Brooches, Feathers and Beads.
