cloudy friday.

it's overcast here, and has been most of the week. but this button-jar bouquet added some cheer and nostalgia- pretty much changing today into wonderful.

fiery orange.

perfect for fall but really, anytime at all.

the carnation.

a simple flower, yet so full of character. i've often been surprised by these blooms- as they seem to endure long days and add beautiful volume and texture to a bouquet. they also make the most dense, pillowy wreaths which have been featured at many of our past (and hopefully future) events. the carnation color wheel is vast-- one of my favorites is the purplest of purple. but that post is coming soon.

summer's end.

one of my favorite weddings was all about color. the dresses were a boastful teal and were complimented perfectly with a summer mix of pink peonies, mango mini callas, peach sorbet & yellow roses.

tribute to hydrangeas.


as a little girl, wandering the fields of my grandparent's farm, i fell in love with flowers. some would grow wild, some were maintained- but all were beautiful. i carried in many lively bouquets to my grandma's kitchen- and loved the way it felt to light up a house that way.

now, years later, my own little girls love to play in those same fields and come in with their very own creations. i love watching life- each stage, as it's in bloom.
