Thank you to WeddingWire for awarding Petals & Twigs with a Couples’ Choice Award for 2015!!

 “The WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Awards® recognizes the top 5 percent of local Wedding Professionals from the WeddingWire Network throughout the United States, Canada and abroad that demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness and professionalism. Unlike other awards in which winners are selected by the organization, the WeddingWire Couples’ Choice Awards® are awarded solely based on the reviews from over 200,000 newlyweds. Awards are determined by a combination of excellence in four factors: overall rating (quality), total number of reviews (quantity), review performance from 2014 (recency), and consistency of reviews from year to year (consistency).”

We are honored and looking forward to being more couples’ choice this year!



Chelsea and Pretlow’s New Year’s Day Wedding

January 22nd, 2015 by Sarah

A New Year’s Day Wedding is the perfect way for us to start of the New Year!  We loved being part of Chelsea and Pretlow’s wedding at Balliceaux. Throughout all the bouquets, headpiece, and boutonnieres we used babys breath, cream and white roses, spray roses, seeded eucalyptus, silver brunia, and foliage sprayed silver.  Thank you to James from 88 Love Stories for taking these great pictures of our arrangements! And thank you to Chelsea and Pretlow for having us be a part of your big day!




Peter & Tayloe’s Wedding

January 7th, 2015 by Sarah

We loved being part of Peter & Tayloe’s wedding.  They were married at St. Stephen’s Church and had their beautiful reception at the Country Club of Virginia.   Thank you to Norman Allen of Photography by Norm for sharing his pictures with us.

Tayloe’s bouquet was full of orchids, ranunculus, freesia, spray roses, and astilbe.

Don’t you love her centerpieces!  We used ferns, safflower, bupleurum, seeded eucalyptus, and bittersweet.

And finally we did the cake top in traditional UVA colors with delphinium and hypericum.

Thank you Peter & Tayloe for including Petals & Twigs in your big day.  We wish you a lifetime of happiness.

Chrysanthemum Season!

October 30th, 2014 by Sarah


It is Chrysanthemum Season and I bet most of you have them sitting on your front porches and back patios as some added color.  Well, here are some fun facts about these great plants!

- Mums are the most popular plants sold between August and November

- If you were born in November, Mums are your birth flower

- If you purchase a Mum in a pot you can plant them in your yard or garden and they will come back the following year.  (In fact the picture above is from a garden where they have come back for 10 years!)

- Mums help remove toxins from the air

- Mums originate from China and are believed to bring happiness and laughter to your home

- Chrysanthemum Tea is very popular as is believed to be a relaxant

See…they are much more then just a pretty flower in the fall!

Have a great weekend!
