Ever heard of using deer antlers for a vessel for your flower arrangement? Us either, but it works magnificently. Husband and wife team Alicia and Adam Rico believe a unique container or vessel (think antlers, milk glass and cake stands) can make flowers look more impressive, tie in the theme of your wedding, and even add texture to your tablescape. Clearly, these designers are about as creative and artistic as they come. It’s no wonder Alicia once designed for Martha Stewart Weddings! They tend to attract modern brides with incredible style, seeking floral design far from cookie-cutter. Their work has been described as a blend of modern and eclectic; organic and rustic, as well as vintage and timeless. We agree with all of the above and would add that they are as nice to work with as they are talented! Brides that we’ve talked to seem to unanimously love their ability to tie in every distinctive detail making each arrangement truly personal and custom. And for those DIY brides…you’re in luck because Alicia hosts design classes at her super cute shop in Dallas. Visit bows and arrows online for a detailed class schedule.
