In the last month we have been privileged to meet some very talented vendors. Our most recent visit was with the wonderful and talented team at Atmospheres Floral and Décor.  Since the 1980’s this team of professionals have been taking the Central Florida area by storm. Master Designer, Debra Shea Robertson, along with sister Cindy were raised in this industry since her parents too were florist and passed the torch on to them. Having made their mark in the industry this team has created countless designs and dreams come true through their work. They continue to pursue the latest trends in the industry and making it not just their own but also a creation their clients ultimately desire.

Atmospheres Floral and Décor’ specialize in wedding floral design and this year they are excited for some trends that continue to rise.  The ladies have shared that brides can’t get enough of greenery. Very popular are herbs such as mint, rosemary, magnolia leaf, and maidenhair ferns amongst many others.  Brides are asking that these simple accents be placed together to created items that can be used such as table runners, outline a picture frame, chair swag, or even adorn light fixtures to bring a cohesive feel through out their celebration.


Complimenting this look is what florists are calling an “organic” bride. This is a bride that wants the ambiance as if she just picked her bouquet from a wild garden. These are flowers like English roses, peonies, hydrangeas, dahlias and ranunculus. With these blooms you see our florist incorporating that greenery previously mentioned into her bouquet tying all those elements together. The great thing about this trend is that it is versatile no matter if you are having a traditional wedding or something more along a relaxed celebration, the organic floral design can match it all.

Being that Atmospheres Floral and Decor have been around since the 80’s they are connected in their community and have a true love for Central Florida. Giving back is a thing this team enjoys doing and what better way to brighten someone’s day than with a gorgeous and heart felt bouquet. After many of their weddings these ladies send their strike team to gather the left over flowers their clients do not want. It is then that the arrangements are taken back to their shop and in the days to follow are sent out to local nursing homes and hospitals. What better way to save them and have someone gifted to enjoy them for all they are?

Florida’s Wedding Favor Trends

As we kick off the 2015 wedding season we are excited to talk about some of the hot wedding trends in Florida this year. I am sure we can all relate to attending some weddings where we are given a favor in which we either throw away or even forget to take home. As brides and grooms continue the trend of personalization and uniqueness we fall upon the ingenious idea of, edible wedding favors. Yes, you can eat that once forgettable gift and enjoy after all the wedding fun is over.  Brides and grooms are taking this opportunity to reveal their individualism through their favorite treats.

With kisses sweeter than honey and knowing they are ‘meant to be’ Florida couples are reaching out to their local honey farms to jar their own honey with a personalized note to send home with their family and friends. Bee-Haven Honey, is a family owned and operated Central Florida honey farm that allows couples a variety of honey to choose from when jarring with love. For convenience this local treasure is open 24 hours to purchase out front at their “Honey Shed” or in bulk with easy online purchasing available. Nothing is sweeter than saying thank you with a jar of honey!

If your couple is into baked goods then we highly suggest taking a look at the works of The Pastry Studio in Daytona Beach, FL for their take on custom sugar cookies and macaroons. The Pastry Studio is not only a local favorite, but has been featured in many popular magazines such as ‘Brides’, ‘Wedding’, and ‘Occasions Bridal Magazine’. The Pastry Studio’s popularity does not end there they have also been featured on TV shows such as Oprah, HGTV, and MTV. The Pastry Studio is most known for their couture wedding cakes and luxury special event cakes and once you see their work you will see why many seek after this local shop.

We know that many of our couples today are health conscious that is why we adore the simplicity of using our states locally grown fruit uniquely as wedding favors. Whether it is oranges paired with a unique label or bags of strawberries adorn with thank you notes, each are yummy and perfect for that Florida spring or summer wedding. Lastly, our couples that do not share a sweet tooth but rather a palette for spirits, ‘Personal Wine’ has just the treat by personalizing mini wine bottle labels for your guest to enjoy even after the reception is over. So it seems to be the sky is the limit to the edible favors conglomerate. Overall, these unique Florida favors are an exciting way for couples to communicate who they are as a pair and leave their guests with a lasting impression they can truly indulge in.
