The Pantone color of the year happens to be Tangerine. Use it as an accent or use it in full force to really add some punch to your decor!
To my surprise I happened upon this beautiful nest in my rose bush the other week. I suppose mama bird thought that even though it was quite low to the ground it was hidden and protected by thorns. I’ve been carefully watching and anticipating the arrival of some new bird friends. I was able to carefully snap a couple of pics while mama cardinal was away.
This past weekend I spent immersed in gorgeous blooms! Floral design has always been an avid interest of mine. In fact, most of you don’t know that this was my career plan after college. I worked at several floral places during college and a couple after. I’ve helped dear friends style their weddings and design bouquets and such over the years, so when the opportunity arose to do my largest event yet I jumped at the chance! So here’s the story of 30 centerpieces, 5 bouquets, 7 boutonnieres, 2 wrist corsages, a cake topper, and a bunch of pretty little vases for things like cocktail hour and the gift table. You can imagine that quite a bit of planning goes into something like this! And of course, having a trusty assistant helps too! I had forgotten how much I love working with flowers! I hope I get to do it again soon!
