Summer Lovin’

September 29, 2017

One of our favorite customers had an elegant garden wedding at their beautiful home! The guests were greeted by two lush wreaths on the front doors. What a great way to welcome everyone!


The bride wanted bright summer colors so she chose yellow, white and hot pinks.  The tables all had low lily bowl arrangements with trailing ivy.  These flowers were not only beautiful but they were hearty and held up in the hot Texas summer!


The fun continued onto the brides dessert table with a cupcake tower and tucks of flowers throughout.


Beautiful Wedding at the historic St. Anthony Hotel

August 18, 2017

Tulips and roses! Those were our Bride’s favorite flowers so we used them throughout her special day! The bouquets her bridesmaids carried were made up of cream tulips and blush roses while hers included roses, tulips, freesia, gardenias and hydrangea.


Our bride wanted a show stopper centerpiece for the middle of the beautiful Anacacho Room. This arrangement stood about 12 feet tall in the center of the room and was a focal point between her two gorgeous cake tables. A special touch on the Bride’s cake table was a soft overlay of her mother’s wedding veil.


The head table was elegant and sophisticated with a mix of elevated arrangements and low arrangements and an assortment of glass candlesticks. 

The guest tables had a low, lush centerpiece of all white, cream, ivory and a touch of blush with her cascading greenery. Bringing in the soft glow of the floating candles was the finishing touch to this romantic look.


Congratulations to a beautiful couple, thank you for letting us be a part of your special day.


Ranch Done Right!

August 10, 2017

Rustic Elegance is the only way to describe this wedding.


The soft dusky blue color of the bridesmaid dresses was a great backdrop for Megan’s vibrant color pallet for her girls bouquets. Rich jeweled tones and succulents were the ongoing theme throughout her wedding.


Our beautiful bride chose a mounded bouquet of cream colored flowers for her bouquet adding in the silvery green succulents to tie everything together.   Incorporating the succulents was an important detail so it was only fitting the groom had a succulent boutonniere.

The ceremony arrangements were non-traditional and we LOVED them!  Oversized pottery with rich tones of hot pink, purple, fuchsia, citron green and peach on an old distressed dresser was unique and fit her vision for her wedding perfectly.


The guest tables had a mixture of arrangements, all slightly different in mercury glass vases. Each table had one larger vase with a mixture of flowers surrounded by smaller vases with single flowers. The arrangements included peonies, dahlias, lisianthis, hydrangea, stock, succulents, and ranunculus.


Some of our favorite pieces were the large arrangements that sat atop barrels with cascading greenery. These flanked the doors that led to the reception, what a fun way to welcome your guests!


The final touch was making sure the cow heads were all “prettied” up!! Lush greenery and badges of flowers around their necks helped them be part of the decor. This was a fun and unique touch for this very fun and unique couple!


Love & Candlelight

August 4, 2016

Exquisite!  There are no other words that best describe Alyson and Greg’s special day.  This bride put her heart into every detail and it showed.


This magical chuppah was the first statement piece the guests were greeted with.  Our bride had a vision of floating orchids and our team of designers were able to bring that vision to life!  White mini cymbidiums were strung and affixed to the flower covered chuppah.

After the ceremony the guests found their place cards on a table with a clean crisp look of all white phalaeonopsis orchids  in Italian flared vases.


We love when brides choose to have two or three different styles of centerpieces with varying heights, especially in large ballrooms.  A third of her tables had six different size candlesticks in the center, some with floating candles and some with flowers; a tight nosegay of all white roses, a mound of white hydrangea and stems of white phalaeonopsis orchids.


Another  centerpiece style she chose was this oversized low round vase with all white flowers that was surrounded by multi height floating candlesticks.

The remaining guest tables consisted of 3 cubes of her signature white flowers with floating candles mixed in.

This head table is straight out of a fairytale!  Long, glass containers filled to the brim of lush white flowers ran the length of the table on each side with an assortment of the floating candles in the middle.   There was a single orchid blossom placed on each of the napkins to finish off the elegant look.

Alyson wanted something nontraditional for her cake and the end result was this stunner! She went with three smaller bridal cakes lined with large, lush cages of all white flowers and floating candlesticks tucked amongst them.

This was a magical night that we were so blessed to be a part of.  We are thrilled when we are able to make our brides dreams come true and Alyson was sure to let us know we accomplished that!  She called us multiple times after the wedding to let us know how much she loved it and even wrote this sweet review!



What do you get when you cross Superbowl 50 with your 50th Anniversary? Only The Party of the Year!

April 21, 2016

This was the Party of the Century!   We were lucky enough to be a part of this amazing Super bowl party and work with some of the best vendors out there!  This took place on Super bowl Sunday at the stunning Hotel Emma.  Guests were greeted with a 50 foot turf runner, cheerleaders, football players and even a mascot that led to oversized megaphones and a drum line to start the party off right!

There were three different areas of the party, the Owners Private event,  the Pub and the kids hangout!  The kids had a blast with different gaming systems, arcade games and lots of party favors!

The Pub was set up with Karaoke, neon signs, electronic dart board, a pool table and of course big screens to watch the game!

The owners party took place in the main ballroom.  Lush arrangements of red roses atop sequined linens were placed throughout the room with a show stopping piece in the center of a round red LED lit bar. Wait staff had custom football jerseys and bartenders were decked out in referee attire, complete with whistle.


Leading to the ballroom was an action station framed with 2 large pilsner arrangements of all red roses.

It certainly was an “action” station as the staff at Emma continuously filled this counter with gorgeous food presentations all evening.


And if that wasn’t enough, check out the outrageous dessert table!

The special treat of the night was a surprise for all of the guests.  The hosts planned a spectacular Half-Time show with DJ Stradivari  “The Violin Guy”.  He is a worldwide entertainer  and puts on the most mesmerizing  performance where he plays different instruments, sings and has an accompanying laser show!

Oscar Night!

March 22, 2016

What an exciting time for this family, who celebrated the nomination of their brother at the Academy Awards.  Because they could not all join him in Los Angeles they hosted an event here in San Antonio and pulled out all the stops, including the red carpet!

The Guests were able to take fun pictures with oversized statues and our host presented their own Oscars including Best Dressed Guest!



The tables were dressed in black satin cloths with red runners that had film strip edging and walk-of-fame stars.  Oversized crystal trees, hanging candles and red roses were worthy of this elegant Academy Award night.  Here at Alamo Plants & Petals we absolutely love theme parties and this was no exception!

Bringing the Ranch to the Southwest School of Art

March 22, 2016

This is the year for gorgeous rehearsal dinners! We had the pleasure to help kick off the weekend right for this great couple.  There were so many personal touches and details the Groom’s family put into this to help make it even more special.  Rustic has never been more elegant!


A portion of the guest tables had unique arrangements of hydrangea, callas, orchids, succulents, roses and pincushion protea created in wood cork containers.  Each arrangement included antlers that were provided by the Grooms family and thornless cactus were used as place cards.


The remaining guests tables were equally as stunning! Antlers, tucks of flowers, limestone, copper votive candles and tall iron candelabras ran the length of the 30 foot table.   Orchids, succulents, hypericum berries, callas, roses, de-petaled sunflowers and pincushions added great texture to the table. It was a magical site to see!



The head table had a large iron tree wrapped with honeysuckle vine, hanging candles, tucks of flowers and antlers around the base.  Each place setting had a wood slice charger and a pheasant feather to give it more of a personal touch for the bride and groom.


The place card table featured handmade shotgun shell holders and was flanked with 2 large arrangements  of lilies, orchids, roses, green trick, hypericum berries, sunflower centers, pincushions, callas and greenery.  We incorporated provided antlers as well as two taxidermied quail that the Grooms family brought in.  All of these items helped personalize their special night!
