Greenery Wedding

It was such fun to create greenery themed wedding florals using seeded eucalyptus, myrtle, ruscus, and magnolia leaves.  White flowers . . . roses, freesia, and veronica . . . complemented the natural, bohemian style of the bride.

Vintage Planters

My collection of vintage animal themed planters made perfect accessories for decorating the venue for a baby shower.  These include mini-carnations, spray roses, and daisy like asters (matsumoto).


Dahlias come in many colors and sizes . . . they are at their peak in late summer in the garden.  At the same time of the season, there are many complementary greens and fall blooming flowers available to add to the centerpiece or bouquet.  The Dahlia Garden design below includes barberry twigs, sedum, russian sage, salvia, dusty miller, and eucalyptus.

Pink and Green Wedding

A pink and green themed wedding with a vintage flair . . . the bride wore a lace dress that had been worn by three generations before her.  The flowers included roses, hydrangeas, ranunculus, gerbera daisies, chamomile and wax flower.

Bridal bouquet also includes astilbe and eucalyptus. Chamomile emphasized the bride’s love for daisies.
The bridesmaids wore floral print dresses with bright pink and green flowers.
Centerpieces also included white alstroemeria, while the hydrangeas’ leaves served as greenery.

Awaiting Spring

imageBetween Christmas and Valentine’s Day, it’s hard to avoid the color red . . . these roses are called “Cayenne” and are a beautiful shade of orange.  The swan container is a vintage pottery piece.


Yellow Roses

Yellow rose designs are presented in two ‘vintage’ containers.  One is a pottery basket; the second is a container created using chalk paint and vintage style ribbons and trim.  The roses are accompanied by mini white carnations, a few stems of garden lavender, and seeded eucalyptus.
