We love seeing our flowers used in so many different ways. In fact, nearly every day we receive new photos from brides and DIY creatives who have transformed our blooms into a magnificent creation! Whether that creation is a bride creating her arrangements for her wedding, or a creative using our florals for an inspirational shoot to be sent out to be featured in a beautiful blog or magazine. We love seeing how our flowers are transformed into something completely unique.
One such creative, Mandy Forlenza Sticos, used our blooms in her styled shoot in New York City at the The Paper Factory Hotel. Where she styled our blooms into a beautiful bouquet and centerpiece. Just recently, Mandy reached out to Blooms to let us know that the beautiful shoot you see below was featured on the fantastic blog Burnett’s Boards. See this link to see the whole feature!
It is such a beautiful shoot Mandy created, every detail from the shoes to the rentals were on point. While everything was curated and organized perfectly, we cannot leave out the wonderful photographer from Maria Doka Photography who shot and captured this shoot so we could share it with you. We were incredibly happy to be included in this shoot, and are excited to see what Mandy has in store next!

Learn what flowers you need to make this lovely peach and mint bouquet! What we love about this color scheme is that it is fitting for each season! Winter, spring, summer, or fall weddings- this bouquet is for you!
As Blooms by the Box has grown we have had the incredible opportunity to meet some fantastically talented creatives. This week our flowers became Laura Jane – Live Event Painter‘s weekend project, and we couldn’t be more thrilled that our blooms are not just a DIY arrangement beautifying a space, but a work of art.
Laura attends special life events – such as a weddings, birthday parties, or even corporate events. After reviewing the venue she will place herself in such a way that she can see a key element of the event, and then she spends her time during that event painting that key part of the event. By actually attending the event she gathers so much more depth and emotion than many photos are able. Each piece created by has it’s own charm and you can tell that she has captured the spirit of the event.
We are very excited to have our blooms turned into a work of art, equally so, we were excited to hear Laura’s experience with BBTB:
“BBTB box arrived promptly in the morning … All of the stems were very long and the flowers all in excellent shape. Upon unloading the contents of the box, it was evident that there were way more flowers there than met the eye … The anemones were my absolute favorite and continued to shift and rotate around like living things during the process of the painting … The peonies were hands down the most delicate and most difficult to paint!”
Thank you Laura for thinking of Blooms by the Box for your weekend project! Check out the whole process from arrival and her flower choice to her space, setup, and the final piece below:
The “Sorbet” Look: Modern and Fun Wedding Flowers
“Sorbet” wedding flowers and bouquets are sweet, sassy, young and fresh. A combination of rich pastels and bright hues, this look stars a radiant punch of lemon and buttercup yellows with a pop of deep coral against a backdrop of blues, spearmint, lavender, and a rich dove gray. Bridal bouquets and flower arrangements feature florals and accessories with geometric modern shapes and graphic patterns, with the feel of an updated “mod” 1950’s and 1960’s vibe.
