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)

2 things. Alison was awesome, and I just lost my man card for reading this post.

As if you ever had one?

JK. You lost your man card when you got assigned the purple room in your new house.
