14/30 Victorian Biedermeier
When I think of the Victorian era my mind automatically thinks of:
elegance and natural blooms
Prints that have very regal feelings
fruits in arrangement!
Seeded Eucalyptus…. I could go on and on……
A popular style of furniture during the era was the biedermeier style. Now granted the name is lent to a style of floral design, but the style of furniture is beautiful! Very elegant very regal very expensive looking.
When I made this bouquet I though of the elegance from the Victorian era. The opulent dresses, the velvet and embroidery. The ribbon wrapped around the stem reminds me of the Victorian era…..
Even wedding dress styles are influenced the Victorian era….. Picture this bouquet with a very opulent dress in a old castle inspired church! FAN-TAS-TIC! I can picture it now, amazing!
Mini Calla Lilies, Dahlias, Roses, and Mini Carnations create the rings in this bouquet.
The matching arrangement does not have to be as literal when designed. In southern California it is not as common to see a Victorian castle or church, but some houses are designed in the Victorian style. What about a backyard wedding?! The arrangement below is a casual feel with Victorian elements. Foliage including seeded eucalyptus, make the majority of this arrangement. Peonies (here, still tightly closed) are the focal flower.
