flower arrangements

Rosé all Day

Earlier this summer I participated in a photoshoot involving an amazing group of local boss ladies. I was invited to design the flower arrangements by Karen of Small Kitchen, Big Taste who is an amazing local chef! She was helped along by the inspiring lifestyle and fashion blogger behind Finding Silver Linings. Together we have this! You can check out Mindy's original post here but I wanted to give some more detailed shots from the incredible Bridget Hecht on my blog! 

My favorite part about these photos are the cows, seriously. How adorable?

I used two types of roses, two types of queen anne's lace, silver brunia, dahlias, and silver dollar eucalyptus. The vases were all picked up from Target. I really wanted to do something in marble and these were perfect! For a larger party, I probably couldn't get away with spending $13 on each floral container but for a small shoot like this, it was the perfect touch.

This Inspiration Shoot was featured on Red Oak Weddings this past May and I've finally got around to putting all the flowers here on the blog!

Last September I had the pleasure of working on this project with Kate from Kate and Co. Events and her amazing round-up of local vendors. She did a fabulous job bringing us all together and keeping us on theme while Kelsey, from Kelsey Combe Photography, captured our work spectacularly. 

For this, we did a garland of silver dollar eucalyptus with touches of maiden hair fern. Then I studded it with cream garden roses and cream carnations. To break up the white and to give it a more mystical feel, I wanted to bring in layers of lavender. The dark purple clematis, paired with the pale scabiosa gave the arrangement height and whimsy, then anchored everything by the fuschia carnations buried in among the cream garden roses. The couple carried everything well and the sunlight in the park was incredibly warm and inspiring. 

It was a pleasure working with them and I can't wait to do it again!

Sneak Peak: Indian Summer Styled Shoot

Megan, from Coppola Creative (you can check her mad calligraphy skills here), asked me to help on this lovely little shoot and I was happy to help. She mentioned pineapples and I was sold! You can check out the full shoot at Westchester Wedding Planner or Bespoke Bride. Here's a peep at some of the bright & colorful florals I put together. 

Special thanks to all the amazing vendors who worked on this project!
