Floral Arrangements for a Sweet Bicycle Theme

The peonies and craspedia steal the show here. I like the burst of color and the sculptural simplicity of the floral arrangements. The designer creatively put emphasis on two blooms. The bouquet on the right is ideal for a chic picnic.  Below is a more rustic version.

Both events were designed around the same theme. In fact, an Anthropologie inspired outdoor picnic inspired the decor of the summer wedding. Let’s have a look at details that you could steal for your next event.

The bright yellow spoons look great next to the soft pink spoons. Do not hesitate to bring unexpected or vintage pieces into your party decor. Take for example, the bicycle basket that was used for the plastic spoons. Or the vintage bicycle and vintage tub. Galvanized metal items fit well with this theme. Usually, Pottery Barn and Ikea always carry a few galvanized metal items.

    I love the color scheme; the vivid colors and contrasts snap the line of vision, leaving your eyes thirsty for more! The bicycle with the basket of flowers reminds me of my youthful summers, pedaling along country roads and snatching flowers along the road edges. You seem to have sparked some nostalgia as well!

    Oooh the freshness! Makes me want to be on Cape Cod, running to the country store on my retro bike! Love this party idea! Thanks for sharing.

    I love the way you subtly mixed the vintage pieces with the rest of decor. The whole scene reminds me of sundressed Sundays at my Meemah’s house. Beautiful blog post.
