Wedding Favorite: Blushing Bougainvilleas

Posted by

I've been on a boug kick here lately. 
Their foliage delivers color all year round <<< MAJOR bonus.
The Sunvillea series is perfect for smaller gardens.  

AND they help create big and bad weddings! 

I had no idea ^^^

See the beauty...

This bouquet, featured by Burnett's Boards, gracefully combines hot fuchsia bougainvillea foliage with complementary roses. Don't miss the gorgeous crown in her hair. Super clever. 

Get the same look with our Barbara Karst bougainvillea

Brides.com shared the perfect wedding arbor draped with bougainvillea as it naturally vined upward and outward. 

Bougs don't stop there with their versatility. Can you imagine how colorful and low maintenance your wedding tables would be with mini vases filled with sprigs of bougainvillea?



Hat tip to Erin Ever After for finding this beauty loveliness. 

While I highlighted a lot of PINK wedding bougainvilleas, they come in several, bridal-loving colors. See our whole collection here and find more inspiration on our Pinterest board: Big Bad Bougainvilleas.

Foliage-Fabulous Bougainvilleas

I bet you didn't know the color you crave from bougainvilleas is really their foliage? What you might have thought was their big bad blooms were really bracts. Just as the color from poinsettias are their bracts, so are the same with these beautiful bougs. Don't be mistaken, there are blooms. They're just not really...big and bad. [...]

Color Crushing: Purple

From time to time, I get a major crush on a particular color. It can be as obsessive as how people go crazy for Pantone's Color of the Year.Currently, I'm crushing on purple. The love affair came on quickly and unexceptionally after I was perusing our collection of Cajun hibiscus and Bayou Rose stopped my scrolling immediately. I mean, just [...]

Imagining a Dude's Garden, If I Was a Dude...

It seems pretty presumptuous of me to imagine what a dude might want in his garden. But I'm going to do it anyway. Pretty sure there are some dudettes out there craving the same kind of environment. Feel free to call me out, if you think differently, dudes.First, I'd gander a man would want a killer grill station.Second, [...]

Double Your Pleasure: Cajun Hibiscus with Bigger & Badder Blooms

I was browsing our Cajun hibiscus varieties this morning and came to the realization (as I should have long ago), we've got some pretty big and bad bloomers. Almost double-the-pleasure bloomers. Hard to say no to that, right?Don't get me wrong, any Cajun hibiscus is a collector's dream. But if you're anything like me, sometimes double blooms are [...]

Big Bloomers for Small Spaces

We can't really call ourselves Big Bad Flower without highlighting some of our biggest and baddest bloomers.  It's almost false advertising... The best part of our biggins is while their flower power may be overwhelming, their overall size isn't. They're perfect for any garden - large or small.  Of course I have to lead off with one of [...]

For the Faint of Heart: A Softer Side Including Rainbows & Unicorns

I realize we -- I mean I -- take a more in-your-face approach to selling plants. I can be kind of bossy. Demanding you eat more cilantro. Suggesting you get a milking cow. I confess, I wouldn't be a good car sales-woman. I don't massage words very well. I mean, when's the last time you read a blog post that contained [...]

Black in the Garden is Sexy as Hell

With a title like that ^^^ you'd never guess I really don't like the color black.Especially when you hear I drive a black car and always wear black to the gym (I mean, wouldn't you? It's slimming).I don't even have one of those little (little) black dresses.The problem is, gray is my favorite color. I [...]

Listen, You Need to Eat More Cilantro

Look, I know I'm not a doctor. Don't pretend to be one, unless you're my son.But I'm pretty sure there is a least 100 doctors out there that would back me up when I tell you this: You need to eat more cilantro. I mean, the internet backs me up, as it should. Cilantro is even [...]

Peppers So Hot, You'll Need Your Own Milking Cow

I love hot.Hot weather.Hot fires.Hot colors. I mean, this is hot.Hot spices. Gosh, how I'm obsessed with Spiceologist, specifically their chile spices. And naturally, I love hot peppers.So clearly, I was school-girl giddy when the Big Bad Boss decided we'd offer five hot pepper seed varieties for the 2015 growing season. Peppers so damn hot, you'll need your very own milking cow. Seriously, if you [...]
