Rockin' Wedding Show

The 2011 Illinois State Florists' Conference theme was Let It Rock!  We had a grand time with hundreds of luscious flower varieties, inspiring designers from across the country, and great vendors who brought in their newest products. . . All so that we can bring the freshest flowers and best designs to you--our Petals & Co. flower family!

Amnesia roses and dove gray plumosa

This calla bouquet features the new wired wool that is one of the latest trends in the flower industry.  It's actually a goat's wool and is extremely soft--it feels like cashmere!  Comes in lots of colors too.

 Green is very popular these days--this bouquet includes  feathery painted tree fern in apple green, hydrangea, hypericum, kermit mums, and yes--even green roses. 

Another arm bouquet that's very dramatic with mokara orchids and protea.  There's some of the new wool again--this time in a soft caramel brown.

Honeysuckle pink is the color of the year for 2011.  Here at Petals & Co, we love PiNk!

Okay, that's our report from the wedding show.  What do you think?
