Botanical Bammel

A review of last year's annual open house at The Gardens of Bammel Lane, themed Botanical Bliss - an au natural approach to a botanical garden, utilizing the existing greenery and floral that the Gardens offers. Watercolor botanical prints, warm florals and a simple bundt cake completes this organic-botanical-garden style and design.
A touch of greenery transformed the Gardens gazebo into a botanical sanctuary.

Springtime has finally arrived and we couldn’t be more anxious for what’s in store! Budding flowers and flourishing greenery is just what we need to get over this year’s overdrawn winter blues. This time of year also marks the annual open house at The Gardens of Bammel Lane - we’ve had the pleasure the past four years to contribute towards the event’s style and design. Last year’s theme was Botanical Bliss - an au natural take on the charming English garden venue, expanding on the existing greenery and floral with subtle pops of color. To bring our vision to life, we utilized the prepped open house as a faux wedding for our ideal organic-botanical-garden couple captured by Sarah McKenzie Photography.

A little bit of color goes a long way! Warming up these botanical ferns with bright tones of red orange and yellow for the bridal bouquet by Something Special in Flowers. For bridesmaids, you can do clusters of greenery only to set apart from the bridal and coordinate with the theme.

Nestled in the heart of the Gardens, our head table was placed under the botanical gazebo. A centered location ideal for your main table – head or sweetheart – to be in the middle of the celebration and surrounded by your guests.

Our original inspiration was utilizing apothecary jars in a cluster or mixture of single blooms as a centerpiece. These wooden crates from Any Occasion Party Rentals achieved a similar look while adding an additional natural element and height when stacked upon each other.

Our ideal couple isn’t into fancy cakes, they crave authentic simplicity which is why we chose an ordinary bundt cake to serve as the wedding dessert.
