Designing With Flowers: Are Floral Animals “Out”?

Dear Readers:

One of the things I love most about being a designer is being able to explore different creative avenues for clients with very different visions. There are those who want something more traditional, others who want a bit of whimsy and those who want a little bit of both.  For this event, my client wanted to greet guests with something unique, romantic and fun.

We came up with the idea of creating floral “love birds” accented with crystals.  Fortunately, the client’s loved the idea and the guests thought it was a lot of fun.  That said, I recently had a colleague tell me that floral animals of any kind should not be done for a wedding.  I disagree, but want to know your thoughts on the topic.
