A Blush Pink Rose for a Summer Wedding

Blush, blush and more blush!

A colour theme for your wedding can shape every aspect of your magical day, from your invitations to the ribbon tied on your bridal bouquet.  Whether you are looking for a modern theme or taking your guests back in time with a vintage vibe, Keira (Ausboxer) will happily lead your colour palette.  Her blooms are filled with petals of soft pink and clotted cream tones that will create a blush backdrop and lots of memories to cherish.

There is a saying from Jean-Francois de La Harpe “We never forget those who make us blush” and we couldn’t agree more.

The palest of blush pink silk ribbons is chosen to pair perfectly with a natural-styled posy of Keira blooms.  White frilly sweet peas dance between each rose with just very light throngs of foliage to keep the overall effect dreamy and romantic.  The perfect wedding bouquet to accompany you down the aisle.

Don’t forget that your roses can dress your wedding cake too.  Vaani at Sugar Plum Bakes took inspiration from Keira’s raspberry ripple colouring to replicate in buttercream.  The finishing touch – an asymmetric cluster of Keira roses .

“I simply adore decorating my buttercream cakes with fresh flowers. I love the natural look of real fresh flowers and it really suits my understated cake designs. I especially love David Austin roses for their fragrance, their beauty and their multitude of delicate petals. This particular buttercream cake design was created to showcase the stunning Keira rose, which is known for its combination of blush pink and cream colours. I blended buttercream in shades of ivory and pink to create a raspberry ripple effect to capture the essence of the colouring of the rose. The sleek, sharp edges and the touch of edible gold leaf maintained a contemporary modern look and formed the perfect backdrop for this cluster of Keira roses.”
