I was swooning over this editorial shoot inspired by the Edwardian Era (early Twentieth Century) that features such a subtle nod to the elegance and details that decorate that time. The colors of the purples and deep reds creates this very romantic, lush, magical feeling, as if the maid or florist of the house went to the rose bushes and cut them all, perfectly arranging them in ornate vases. Even the small cake, so quaint and understated is a reflection of the amount of thought that went into this.
The trailing greenery breaks up the colors and creates a romance. I love the asymmetrical design of the centerpiece, flowing in one direction off the dessert stand.
Per Shelley of Orchid Dynasty, "The opulence of this era was achieved through a simple floral palette of multicolored garden roses, Sweet Peas, Narcissus, Jasmine Vine, and Cattleya Labiata orchid blooms grown from our personal collection."
Sweet Peas, Narcissus and Jasmine are my favorite scents in flowers, so I could only image the overwhelming fragrance gathering in the room. So gorgeous!
Lauren from Saucy and Kistch adds, "We wanted the table to be full of rich feminine details. Beautiful mixed china piled on top of each other accented with a touch of lace and flowers that dripped off the table. The romantic paper goods feature a hand painted watercolor motif inspired by hand painted china."
