Aqua Flowers and Tablescapes

For brides that want to incorporate aqua or any other sort of turquoise shade of blue in their color palette, finding the right flowers can definitely be a challenge. Pink, purple, peach? Plenty of options, but there are very few blue flowers, and even fewer options for an aqua or turquoise. So, what’s a girl to do? If there are no other colors you’re working with, find other ways to incorporate that blue color.

Instead of aqua flowers, use colored ribbon around your bouquet…

You could also use different colored flowers (neutral if your only color is aqua, or use flowers in the other colors of your palate) in aqua colored bottles or containers…

Or, use aqua on the tables linens and stationery…

I love how this table uses a lot of different elements in blue: the cake stand, glasses, pillows…

  1. I love love the incorporation of aqua and blue in everything in here :) Those blue chairs are great, and I love the idea that if there were no blue flowers, incoporate a blue ribbon instead :)

  2. Great idea Christen on how to introduce blue with your flowers! There are also now tinted and blue flowers available in the market such as roses, hydrangeas, irises and others.
