Wedding Trends: Colorful Wedding Bouquets

Want to make your bouquet that catches the eye? A colorful bouquet really stands out against the ivory color of a wedding dress or a neutral colored bridesmaid dress. Here are some colorful bouquet ideas for your upcoming special day!

Tangerine Beauties

Combine bright oranges and yellows for a poppin’ bouquet! Add small pieces of greens, like a beautiful succulent or dusty miller to complete your bouquet look.

Bright Greens

Green bouquets are growing in popularity and bright greens can really make your arrangement stand out! Add white roses or a touch of lilac throughout the arrangement to give it that ‘just picked’ garden look!

Pretty Pinks

Don’t hesitate to use different shades of a favorite color. Combine fuchsia, magenta, pink, and tangerine roses for a bouquet that will grab everyone’s attention. Add a couple of succulents for a rustic look!

Old Rituals and New Beginnings
by J. Robbin Yelverton

Celebrations are used to mark significant dates and occasions and New Year’s Eve is certainly no new face to the party!  In fact, the celebration of Winter Solstice and the beginning of the New Year is one of the oldest. For most Westerners, that day of celebration has evolved and moved from the original December 21 to the beginning of the Gregorian calendar, January 1st.

High-End Design with Bella Grace Floral

Nancy Staples, owner of Bella Grace Floral, wanted a flower shop that was very different from anything  in her area. Now, three years after she purchased Bella Grace, her shop focuses on making custom high-end designs for anyone in her community.

Staples began her love for flower design when she was a little girl and her grandparents owned a flower shop. After having a career in banking, Staples knew she wanted to change things up and pursue her love of floral design. She took over the 20-year-old  flower shop and has made it a successful business with reputable design. Three years later, Bella Grace Floral is recognized as a high-end florist in the Cornelius, North Carolina area.

As the leading floral provider for NASCAR, Bella Grace is the premier shop for weddings, sympathy and everything in between. They work closely with clients of a variety of budgets to make their floral vision come to life.

Bella Grace 1As a local florist, Bella Grace has a huge focus on its customers. Having loyal customers who have been coming to the shop for 20 years, since before Staples took over, Staples believes her shop has a real responsibility in maintaining the quality of their product and offering the best in design. It is because of these loyal customers that Staples loves being a local florist.

For a quality florist who has a passion for creating sophisticated design for local customers, you get that and more with Bella Grace Floral.

Your Christmas Guide To Evergreens

The holidays are coming up fast and it’s time to put up your last-minute decorations! We put together a quick guide on how you can incorporate these three evergreens into your holiday decor.

If you are looking for the smells and textures of Christmas, then look no further than the three popular holiday greens: Fir, Pine, and Cedar.


Firs are very fragrant and shiny evergreens with dark green needles. Two popular firs are the Douglas Fir, which has beautiful soft needles, and the Pacific Silver Fir, which have a silvery-white color under its needles.


Pines are known for their bright green color and long needles. The Princess Pine is popular due to its soft texture. The shore pine has long needles and small pine cones that add to the overall rustic look.


The Port Orford Cedar is the most popular of cedars and it is recognized by its long stems and lacy tips. It is also one of the most long-lasting greens. It maintains its vitality and color for many weeks.
