More Wedding Flowers!

I had the pleasure of doing a bouquet and boutonniere for our friends Genevieve and Will on their big day. You might recall that Genevieve baked our wedding cake, hand pies, and brought serving dishes for our wedding dinner, and helped us out with some of the catering service as well. So naturally it was a gimmee that I wanted to gift them wedding flowers! She told me she wanted purple with some white and green and that gave me free range to style up something lovely. I went to a local market the day before and picked out all the flowers, came home, prepped them and started building the arrangements. Drop off the next morning, and it was fun to see all together at the reception. The lovely bride told me she had so many compliments on them which was fantastic! bout Here’s what I did! Flowers: dark purple statice, purple freesia, white roses, white snapdragons, lavender tulips, mini hydrangeas, leather leaf fern. I wrapped the stems of the bouquet in green ribbon and then a sweet vintage hankie. 3 shades of purple along with the white, dark green, and the limey green of the mini hydrangeas really made the monochromatic purples work! I just love how it turned out and was so happy to be working with flowers again! bouquet

Color of the Month May 2017

May! The garden has really really sprouted and we’ve begun yard work. We’ve been chopping down scrub trees, done a bit of weeding,  and I sold my beloved vintage Knoll patio set to help pay for the new roof, but purchased another cool vintage set that folds easily for storage. Stephan dug out a new area in the front of the house and we’re working on new plans and plantings. This is the worst allergy season I think I’ve ever had but I’m hanging in there. I also just turned 40. I’m still processing that a bit, but the over the hill theme inspired this black and white and red color of the month, ha. IMG_20170501_190227 Fave vintage: thermos, graphics on the cloth box, coffee tin banks, canisters, kitschy bowling item, tiny salt and p’s, strawberry jar, and Ebonette cups n saucers. may blog Fave vintage: cute tablecloth, Knowles Ebonette dishes, red striped napkins, and a few hosta leaves for interest.
