There are few color combinations as timeless and classic as white and green.
It has the ability to lend itself to any occasion, mood or style of design and best of all, it’s a color palette you can use year-round when it comes to florals.
Here’s just a handful of examples of white and green arrangements we’ve designed at Celsia Florist across the Winter and Spring months.

Today’s the day! Finally, the release of Baz Luhrmann’s much talked about screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s famous tale of America in the 1920s, The Great Gatsby.
Photographed beautifully by Matt Kennedy at Vancouver’s iconic Teahouse at Stanley Park, this shoot was the epitome of luxury. From Bisou Bridal’s exquisite Jenny Packham and Monique Lhullier gowns to the gorgeous garden roses and gold sequinned linen lining the table, the abundance and affluence synonymous with this bygone era was truly on show.
And we couldn’t get enough of it. Every girl should have an opportunity to dine at a table with sequinned linens, right?
Enjoy the images and Happy Gatsby Friday!
(Don’t forget to place your Mother’s Day order for Sunday!)

If you follow along on our Facebook page you may be familiar with a little post we do each week called Monday Meanings. Each Monday we share with you a picture of one of our arrangements along with the meaning behind a featured bloom.
It’s only a small post but it is undoubtedly one of our favorites. Together we have learnt the meaning of so many flowers and discovered a sweet new little language , The Language of Flowers. (There are many books by this name that would make a beautiful Mother’s Day gift. We recommend the novel by Vanessa Diffenbaugh.)
Considering Mother’s Day is on Sunday, we thought we’d bring you an extended Monday Meanings today based on a garden-inspired arrangement we created with Spread Love Events for a recent shoot.
Now to deconstruct…..
The meanings behind some of the featured blooms: Tulip – declaration of love, Stock – you will always be beautiful to me, Matricaria/Chamomile – energy in adversity, Ranunculus – you are radiant with charms, Eucalyptus – protection, Pale pink rose – Grace.
If you would like to learn more of our Monday Meanings, like us on Facebook.
Huge thank you to Gucio Photography for the images and Spread Love Events for the styling. You can see more images from this shoot on Spread Love’s blog and see how, with some thoughtful details, you too can prepare a special Mother’s Day Brunch for the special person in your life.
Remember you can place your Mother’s Day orders at our online store now.

We couldn’t resist bringing you these beautiful images from a delightful little birthday tea party we provided florals for recently.
The color scheme of pastels, pinks, cream white and orange was oh-so-feminine and paired perfectly with the mercury glass vases and votives used throughout.
We thought the birdcage finished with blooms was a cute touch too.
What girl wouldn’t love a pretty-in-pink party (or bridal shower)! Enjoy!
You can find more tea-party-inspired florals from this event on our Pinterest page.
We have an exciting new partnership to share with you all today, along with some fabulous photos from our first collaboration.
We are delighted to announce we have partnered with the incredibly-talented team at Railtown Catering to fulfill all of the floral needs for Railtown and their clients.
Our first collaboration was at Railtown’s spectacular launch party last week at Vancouver Urban Winery and we could not have been more thrilled with how things went. (And the food… On the food!)
We were asked to create a “fresh and Spring-like atmosphere” through our florals and were given the creative freedom to execute the vision how we saw fit. Talk about a dream job!
Drawing on citrus tones and seasonal blooms combined with organic elements such as wood and birch, we created Spring garden party-inspired florals which were the perfect complement to a beautiful venue and magical food. (See… we’re still talking about the food!)
But enough of the chatter – it’s time for some photos.
You can see more images from the launch party on our Facebook page.

One of our favorite days each month here at Celsia Florist is when we get to share our new window display with you!
Well today is that day!
In celebration of all things love this Valentine’s Day we have called upon the delightful styling and imagination of the ladies at the aptly-named Spread Love Events.
With attention to detail that never ceases to take our breath away, this month’s creation is a colourful and fun display that exudes playful joy.
The florals featured in our main window are the boho-chic vision of the fabulously talented Le Soirees. We were fortunate enough to be involved in a photo shoot with Le Soirees this week and couldn’t bear to see such beauty go to waste. Just wait until you see these arrangements combined with the styling delights of Le Soirees and the photography brilliance of Vasia Photography! Watch this space to see details from the shoot in coming weeks!
“Our fancy fringe garlands adorn reclaimed wood swings to display Celsia Florist’s artistic and colourful arrangements that are anything but ordinary this Valentine’s Day and beyond,” Spread Love Event’s principal planner Ashley Bond said.
“With classic black and white stripes, dots, and fringe – it’s a party in the window reminding passers-by that love is a big deal and worth celebrating.”
We couldn’t have said it any better! Thanks for helping us spread the love, Ashley!
Happy Valentine’s Day friends and if you are passing by, come and share in the joy at our Kitsilano store.

We are delighted to share with you a new range of products we are stocking at Celsia Florist.
The organisation is Strathcona 1890 Urban Seed Collections and their business is in seeds.
Strathcona 1890 has created collections of seeds that people with little or even no yard can grow. The idea behind the venture is that we can all produce a portion of the food that we eat, cutting down on our carbon foot print and becoming more connected with what we consume.
The seeds are all non-gmo, open pollinated, non-chemically treated for container gardens to be grown on urban balconies, roof top gardens and window boxes so not having a back yard is no excuse!
The seeds come in a variety of different collections including quick growing, nectar and pollen flowers, tasty and beneficial herbs and edible flowers for culinary use.
Each collection comes with full instructions and growing tips along with suggestions for even those with a black thumb!
Proceeds from sales of these unique collections of seeds also help create new jobs in the Downtown Eastside as well as help develop sustainable food growing programs at Vancouver’s inner city schools, daycares and community centres.
You can buy Strathcona 1890 products in our shop or at our online store.

Today on the blog we’re bringing you some behind-the-scenes shots from one of our favorite events of the Summer.
Lindsay and Vince’s Whistler Wedding was a true highlight of 2012 for all of us here at Celsia Florist and we are beyond delighted to see it featured today on Style Me Pretty.
Envisioned and styled by our friends at Spread Love Events to reflect the natural beauty of the stunning Whistler area, this elegant wedding has us in floral heaven for days (and nights) on end as we created the floral features which accented every aspect of this magical day.
With a color scheme of blush, peach and orange accented with thistle, succulents and seeded eucalyptus, our store was overflowing with floral delights such as dahlia, garden roses, spray roses and astilbe.
Here’s a few photos from our store the night before the big day!
