This week we interviewed Allison Welch of The Elegant Petal area Fort Worth Florist.
S&F: Can you tell me a little bit about the types of flowers you like to use on wedding cakes?
The Elegant Petal's Allison: For a 3 dimensional look on wedding cake flowers we like to use an interesting greenery or flower buds. Tree fern greenery is feather-like and the Freesia flower has blooms and tiny green buds that look fantastic trailing over the edge of cake layers.
S&F: What do you suggest for ruffle loving brides: A cluster of gladiolus blooms creates a ruffled effect and, since the blossoms are separate from the stem, most people are in awe as to what type of exotic flower it is.
The Elegant Petal's Allison: What's your favorite simple and easy look? A
favorite look to customize cake decor is to use striped or other themed ribbon with a large bloom as an accent.
