When planning our granddaughter’s first birthday party my daughter-in-law wanted it to be very special.  It was their first child and they were very excited to celebrate this milestone.

As the name implies, it resembles a cascade or waterfall with the flowers flowing downward. Traditional wedding flowers used in the cascade bouquet are white and include roses, stephanotis, white or calla lilies, and mingled with greenery. The bouquet has the appearance of being loose and free flowing.
