In early March I had the pleasure of doing the flowers for my new sister in law’s wedding. It was so fun. She wanted flowers similar to mine (shown here) but with brighter pinks. We used peonies, garden roses, roses, and ranunculous. I think they turned out just perfect. The pictures were taken by my other very talented sister in law Jillian Crawford Photography. Check out her work here.
I love the look of ginger jars and pink roses.
So I was at my mom’s house for Easter and she has ginger jars all over the place, she is a bit obsessed which is so fun. So I decided to make our Easter table bouquet with one of the short ones….
Aren’t they pretty? I like the way it turned out. Sorry the pic isn’t great. I need to get better and not taking pictures in a rush before guests come!
I have been MIA in the last month. I do have some good excuses. I FINALLY finished my MBA about 2 weeks ago. I was running around finishing my thesis paper and I couldn’t be happier to be done. Right after that I traveled to NYC for work, and then we had a wedding in the family. For which I did the flowers. So things finally seem to be settling down around here and I am excited to have some time once again to catch up on blogging.
Here are just a couple snap shots of everything going on around here….I hope to share more pictures of the flowers later, when I get a hold of them! The Flower pictures are taken by my very talented sister in law – check out her web cite.
I have been so busy this week at work I haven’t even had time to show you all the fun I had last weekend. I wanted to prep for our holiday table with flowers and making a table overlay. I wanted to mix poinsettia’s in with red roses for my table. I haven’t always been a red person but lately I have been loving it! I wasn’t sure how the poinsettia blossoms would hold up…after a week I would say they are ok….some of the blossoms look better than others. Next year I might have to mix in something else. Or just make it closer in. The red roses hold up well but the others have faded a bit. I wanted to make the arrangement a bit out because I wanted to enjoy them for as long as possible since we go away to our families for the holidays.
I also made this table overlay last weekend. Just added pom poms to the edges – pom pom’s make everything better!
Can’t wait to see how it all looks for our Holiday dinner this weekend! I will share more next week!
