Clay Flower Favor Ideas - English Garden Variety

My client Nectaria asked me to create some favors for her wedding. She fell in love with some favors that I did for her friend, Alicia's wedding and wanted me to do her favors! Gotta love referrals! So, because Nectaria's wedding is not a destination Hawaii wedding like Alicia's wedding we decided to go with these large 4" square boxes for her favors and incorporate the English garden style feeling she was going for.
Her flowers are Vendela roses, ivory peonies, hydrangeas and the bridesmaids are wearing a buttercup yellow. She still wanted some tropical feel in the look since they are getting married in Florida so I felt the palm trees would work well and the pattern on the stock kind of breaks up the monotone color palette. I did 3 samples for her, an open peony, a garden full bloom rose and a Vendela rose variety. I love them all so it will be hard to pick. I think she's envisioning possibly doing a couple of different flowers. I can't wait to see the photos from her wedding!
