I was inspired to create a monochromatic styled shoot stemming from my early days of designing. I loved to arrange enmass until one day I was told it was “wrong”. Using the bold colors of magenta, midnight blue, and olive green which I found in the fabulous ribbons from Silk and Willow, I set out to compose something unexpected and an alternative to a multi color palette.With Jamie McPherson, of J.Elliott Style, who has an expertise in styling events as well as a successful background in the interior design world, my vision was brought to life with ease and precision. Following my heart and surrounding myself with talented professionals allowed my dream to come to fruition.
Magenta: Red charm peonies, anthuriums, safari sunset, amaryllis, cherry love roses
Midnight Blue: Delphinium, Eryngium, echinops
Olive Green: antique hydrangea, green brunia berries, seeded eucalyptus, jade roses, hanging amaranthus
Magenta, Midnight Blue, Olive Green
WHAT TO WEAR
All of the lovely gowns were provided by Fabulous Frocks of Atlanta.
ITEMS TO INCORPORATE
Inspired by color Gertie Mae’s Floral Studio designed a trio daring monochromatic bouquets. One of each color in bold red, deep green and rich blue. To support each individual color we included the same colors in the details such as a pillow, a chair and a cozy throw. The focal point here is a stunning table arrangement that incorporates all three colors and pulls everything together. Additionally, the place settings give unity to the color story.
THINGS TO REMEMBER
To keep a monochromatic bouquet from looking flat, texture and interest were created by mixing a broad selection of flora in a multitude of shades of one single color.
