March 8th was the 2009 Wedding Trends Symposium at Washington Floral Service. The day brought many helpful tips, introduction to some new products, cool design ideas, and yes, snow! Here are photos of a few designs that top designer Loann Burke, AIFD, PFCI showed us.

A trio arrangement (below) with daisies. The colored floral foam cubes look like cut fruit. Cantaloupe, honeydew, and pineapple!
A delicate cascading bridal bouquet (below left) complete with bustle flowers (below right). Martha Stewart Weddings Fall 2008 also showed bustle flowers although theirs were done with ribbon/fabric flowers.
