Have a peek at Martha Stewarts flowers, she does some really beautiful arrangements. You might also want to look up what flowers are in season in September to cut down on your costs.

So many of the flowers come in white so I think you should decide on your purple flower first.  You could do like an orchid, but I was a bit scared of DIY with them, and they’re a bit more expensive.

Hyacinths are pretty or hydrangeas, though hydrangeas can be a bit delicate but we used them in DIY with no problemo.  I loveeeeee calla lilies and they have some pretty purple ones but they are a bit more costly of a flower.

Spider mums I think are also really fun, I think I really like this idea for the birch vases.

I think of daisies when it comes to backyard weddings..

 

Or what about birch and moss?

Or birch and carnations?

 

All these flowers are normally inexpensive, in seasn,  and easy to work with…some inspiration:

Carnations are always a good choice. They come in TONS of different colors and are probably the cheapest flower out there. I also second the spider mums – I know they come in a really pretty light purple. Just about any flower comes in white, so I don’t think you will have an issue there!

I like this one: you could intermingle purple and white daisies and mums!

Just imagine this vase wrapped in birch bark….

I would stay away from orchids – they’re expensive, delicate and hard to work with if you’re not a pro.
