From classic designs to seaside bouquets, Cape wedding floral ideas come alive on a visit with Verde Floral Designs in Mashpee Commons.
“Elegant, romantic, and traditional—or beachy, casual, and natural. Those are the words that I hear from Cape brides,” says Jeff Sawyer, owner of Verde Floral Designs. Jeff (in this case Jeff is a woman’s name!) has a passion for flowers—and Cape Cod. After 15 years of success in the corporate world, when she enjoyed the Cape as a getaway, Jeff opened a lovely Mashpee Commons shop where she is finally able to combine both her loves. She particularly enjoys working with Cape brides. “When I ask brides what atmosphere they want at their wedding they all have their own ideas—but almost every bride wants her flowers to reflect that special Cape Cod feeling,” says Jeff.
“Cape brides just love hydrangeas. For a Sea Crest Beach Hotel wedding in Falmouth, we massed a lot of the hydrangeas in different colors of blue, green, and white for the table centerpieces–a simple but just beautiful look with a gorgeous Cape Cod theme. The touch of the bear grass wrapped around the stems and used as a loop accent adds a great coastal touch.”
