Adventure Awaits-A Disney Up Inspired Wedding

Last year when we met Tiffany at a bridal show she was struggling to find a florist that had the knowledge and experience to create her dream wedding. Her idea? A Disney Up theme wedding. We were so excited to join Tiffany and Cree on their Up Adventure! Tiffany thought of every detail. When the day came it was the perfect combination of Disney’s Up and her favorite color yellow, with a traditional Chinese wedding tea ceremony thrown in, all taking place at the beautiful Paradise Falls (where else?).

Tiffany’s bouquet was yellow tones with touches of cream and greens. Made up of yellow garden roses, yellow billy balls, yellow button chomomile, creamy yellow spray roses, white ranunculas, and light yellow stock, it was a free form hand tide look. Notice the Up pin added for detail.

The ceremony took place at the waterfall. The aisle decor was simple, lanterns adorned with a garland of yellow flowers and greenery were hung from shepard hooks.

 

The Bridesmaids wore buttery yellow dresses. Their bouquets were hand tied with yellow billy balls and creamy yellow Eden spray roses and white montecasino asters with touches of greenery.

 

The cocktail hour and reception were the perfect combination of whimsy and elegance.

For the cocktail hour billy balls were artistically placed in vases and soda bottles to on belly bars, tying into the Up balloon theme. 

There were three different looks for the reception.

The first look was a wooden lantern sitting on top of a wood slab. A garland of yellow flowers and greenery surrounded the lantern. A halo of yellow flowers topped the lantern.


The second look was a pedestal centerpiece of white hydrangea, yellow billy balls, yellow roses, yellow stock, and white chamomile and greenery.

The third look was a garland of balloons with greenery tucked in. 

The Sweetheart Table was decorated with two teacups, customized by the bride, that each held a smaller version of the centerpiece. Behind the sweetheart table sat a balloon wall that matched the balloon garland on some of the tables.  

Additional details included a welcome table with a balloon wall, the guest book, and wish jar…all Up themed of course…down to Carl and Ellie’s mailbox. The Up theme photo booth was so much fun!!

The Cake Table decor was simple, as to not take attention away from the cake….we still can’t get over the cake!!!

The sweetest part of the day was the Traditional Tea Ceremony

Funeral and Sympathy Flowers

Having flowers at a funeral is a long standing tradition. Today flowers are sent to a funeral as a way to visually express love, respect, and the pain of mourning for the deceased. They are also sent to show support of those grieving. Flowers bring warmth and beauty to a service.

There are many types of arrangements that can be sent to a funeral. You can choose from vase arrangements, standing sprays, and maches.


The more personal flowers are usually sent by family members and those closer to the deceased. These could be a casket piece or urn wreath.

Whether a wreath, spray, or vase arrangement there are many styles and flowers to choose from. They can be traditional all whites or bright and vibrant to represent the deceased’s personality. They are often traditional to the deceased’s culture as well.

Sympathy flowers can be sent to the home of the family of the deceased instead of being sent to the service. These flowers should have less of a funeral look and feel. Usually a vase arrangement, these are meant to show support of those who have suffered the loss.

An other option is to send a plant or memorial garden. These living memorials are a touching gift of hope and renewal during a difficult time. These can be sent to the service or to the home of a loved one.

Four Seasons Flowers carries a variety of beautiful and tasteful sympathy flower arrangements, plants, and memorial gardens all available for delivery to funeral homes, churches, or the house of a grieving loved one. We offer sympathy flower delivery throughout San Diego with fresh, beautiful flowers.

Holiday Design Classes, December 2019

There’s something about the holidays that bring out the DIY-er in everyone. Some people are natural Do-It-Yourselfers, then there’s the rest of us… We try, we see great ideas on a certain website and get inspired. We go to the local craft store and spend hours getting everything on our list and “Oh yeah… I need this box of 150′ of garland, these 15 spools of ribbon, and water colors and blank cards because I’m going to hand paint every one’s cards this year!!” Hundreds of dollars later, we’re exhausted and sitting down to a holiday movie with a glass of wine sound like a way better idea at the moment. We’ll get to crafting tomorrow. Tomorrow we pull everything out and realize “Oh no!!! I forgot a hot glue gun!!!”. Back to the craft store… Two hours and $150 later we’re back at home ready to DIY, Baby!!!

We’re cutting. We’re gluing. We’re making something that doesn’t look anything like the picture we saw. “How did they get this to do that?!”. “It looked so much easier on the video…”

Ready for a better idea? Grab a few friends or family members and head out to breakfast on a Saturday morning. After breakfast go to an hour long floral design class. At the class you’ll learn how to design a wreath or holiday centerpiece. An actual floral designer will be teaching the class. She will be able to guide you, inspire you, encourage you, and answer your questions. There’s no stress. There’s no spending extra money on items you’ll never use and will just donate later. There’s no clean up. You just show up!!! The best part? You can still say “I made that!” to your friends and family when they are admiring your handy work.

Four Seasons flowers just had a wonderful Fall Center Piece class. It was made with a combination of dried flowers and fresh cut flowers. Gold painted succulents and white miniature pumpkins really gave it that fall look.

Four Seasons Flowers is offering a holiday wreath class and a holiday center piece class. Both will be a great chance to make a beautiful decorative element for your holiday decor.

Raffle For A Cure

Four Seasons Flowers is a proud supporter of the Parkinson’s Association Summit Walk for Stem Cell Research and we need your help to climb the Summit and help research find a cure!

Parkinson’s Disease (PD) became a personal story to Four Seasons owner Carma Bertran White, and her family, when her older sister Elena was diagnosed back in 2011. Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological disease for which there is no cure and it is the second most prevalent neurodegenerative disorder behind Alzheimer disease, affecting over 1.5%-2% of the population over the age of 60. Currently, in the United States, there are approximately 1 million persons with PD and an estimated 7 to 10 million people worldwide. By the time the disease is generally diagnosed, approximately 60-80% of the dopamine (DA) producing neurons have been destroyed. The research project’s goal is to replace the lost dopamineurgic cells with brand new dopamine producing neurons derived from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). This revolutionary Nobel Prize winning process utilizes a patient’s own skin cells to create induced pluripotent stem cells.  

Summit for Stem Cell Foundation’s vision is to bring to market an efficacious and safe induced pluripotent stem cell-based therapy for all patients with Parkinson’s disease. Their  mission is to increase awareness, educate and raise funds in support of research that will result in a victory over Parkinson’s disease.

Carma and her sister Elena will be trekking on the next “Pilgramage For Parkinson’s” in El Camino de Santiago, Spain to help raise awareness and the much-needed funds to help all patients who are affected by this devastating disease.

Boost Your Mood With Flowers!

Spring has arrived and with it comes the beauty of nature that delights all of our senses.

Our fast-paced lifestyle requires much needed TLC more often than we get it.

Did you know that you can relieve stress, enhance your mood and increase your vitality with a bouquet of flowers?

A simple hand picked wild-flower bouquet or one made with fresh and long-lasting blooms from your local florist is a great way to bring the benefits of nature inside.

Fresh flowers can lift your spirits and have an immediate impact on happiness, invoking long-term positive effects.

Research at Rutgers University has shown that participants demonstrated “sincere” smiles, delight and gratitude upon receiving flowers. The recipients were also less depressed and enjoyed life more. In addition, the presence of flowers  led to increased contact with family and friends.

So open up those windows and let the fresh spring air and sunshine inside, but don’t forget to place a lovely bouquet of spring flowers on the table for you and your family to enjoy and share! Choose Four Seasons Flowers for spring flower delivery in San Diego and you just might find that you have an extra “spring” in your step!
