Emily & Eric 12-19-09

We had the absolute pleasure of working with Emily & Eric this past Saturday at the State Room in Boston.  The style was mod but totally glam!  Platinum and black lined linens, deep saturated red flowers, lots of crystals, black feathers, clusters of red votives and sparkly silver branches completed the look.  Her bouquet was winter white: peonies, ranunculus, calla lilies and hydrangea accented with crystals and the girls were deep red: peonies, ranunculus, calla lilies and black magic roses. 
There were 2 different types of centerpieces.
The low centerpiece was made up of 3 low glass cylinders filled with silver balls surrounded by clusters of red glass votives.  The tall centerpiece had glittery silver branches coming out of the top with chandelier crystals hanging off a few of the branches.  We also added crystal sprays coming out of the bottom of the centerpiece.  Red james storie orchids were submerged in the tall glass container.  The arrangement was surrounded by red orchids below and clusters of red glass votives.  Both centerpieces were filled with deep red antiqued hydrangea, peonies, roses, kangaroo paws, orchids and calla lilies.
Another great feature of this wedding was the lined red votives along the railing of the entire room. 

But the best feature of all was working with Emily and her mom.  They both had fabulous ideas for the flowers but were also open to all of our ideas too.  Emily was so relaxed and fun to work with. 
We wish the new couple a great start to their new life together!  As always, thanks for working with Fino!

FINO Does Holiday Home Decor

This is our second Christmas at our studio in Melrose and lots of local folks have welcomed us into their homes asking us to dress them up a bit for the holiday season.  Below are a few photos of a home we just put together for a wonderful woman named Marie.  Her home is already so beautiful inside; it was easy to make it look even more beautiful.  She has a lot of blue, brown and golds in her house so we decided to stay with those tones instead of the usual holiday reds and greens.

The fireplace mantle, staircase and feathered wreath all share the same color scheme.

The garland is a mixture of hemlock, pine and other fresh sweet smelling winter greens.

We placed a red feathered wreath on her kitchen table with a red striped glass container in the center holding votives.

The fireplace has a mixture of pine cones, clusters of bells, ornaments and other fun glittery bling pieces.  The fresh winter green garland is a great alternative to the artificial ones. 

The outside poles are wrapped in the wintery greens. And a bronze planter placed in the kitchen gets decked out in a square hemlock wreath, red and glittered gold branches and touches of ball ornaments and other accents.

We are also selling fresh modern looking wreaths (everything from square magnolia leaf wreaths to hemlock/pine with citrus accents).  Call us today if you're interested!  781.665.3800
