Day 255's floral flashback
I'm not sure what's with me today, but I've got weddings on the brain. It's probably because I was predicting use of my vacation days, and about half of them are attached to or because of a wedding (there are seven [and counting] on the calendar for 2008).
Thanks to Erika over at Urban Grace, I stumbled upon housemartin today, which affirms my belief that I should always click on every link she includes -- she always finds the best stuff/people! Housemartin is a cute little blog about "inspired home and floral;" two of my favorite things!
For our June wedding, I selected all green and white flowers, and let me just tell you how original I thought it was at the time! Ha! Oh well. My bouquets had green and white hydrangeas, white peonies, green cymbidium orchids, green hypericum berries, and probably a couple of other things. I knew exactly what I wanted because I searched high and low for green and white bouquets!
In all my searching, I don't think I found any as beautiful as these. Turns out Housemartin is freelancing some floral arranging (in anticipation of opening a shop), and recently completed these gorgeous green and white bouquets, etc.
Flower arranging is one of those things I would like to do in my "dream life." Love all this yummy texture.
This is a little bedside arrangement created for a bride and groom to coordinate with their wedding flowers -- how thoughtful! Oh to wake up to this every morning ...
And now with a little yellow and pink added to the mix. I think it adds a nice dimension, don't you?
And for the holidays, with some little silver ornaments -- how clever!
(Apologies to Wes [and David and Eric] for this uber-girly post)
