A lovely lady I have come to know really well asked me to make her an arrangement that could sit in her store. I made this arrangement for her out of silk flowers, this way she could keep it forever and use it whenever she wanted. She asked for a spring/Easter arrangement which is why I used the bright yellows and pinks, which a little touch of the purple.
As I had some extra flowers after a busy week of prom items, I found this crate shoved somewhere in the shop and was really inspired. I wanted to use different vases to create different pieces to this one arrangement. The greenery really helps to bring out all the colors from the flowers and bring the pop of the wood through everything. I included the deer antlers to give it a country flare since it is an all wooden crate.
Coal Bucket Roses
This arrangement was made for our dining table in the house around Valentine's Day. I wanted to create something that had a country feel, the willow and eucalyptus, while still keeping a classy look as well, the hot pink and white roses. The coal bucket, I believe, binds together these two completely opposite themes.
Helen is my dad's aunt and she recently passed away in April. This was one of my first funeral arrangements that I made and I really felt the pressure as I was making it. I was not to sure on the colors to use so I began walking around my local wholesaler and picked out this Safari Sunset filler and Blue Hydrangeas. It is a simple arrangement, but it was placed at the head table of the entrance!
Coral Spray Rose Wristlet
My junior year prom dress was this pink coral color and had silver sparkles all on the bottom part. I wanted to have something different than everybody else for prom, so I decided to use Powdery Mildew as a filler. This is definitely not a traditional filler for prom corsages, but I loved it even more because of that. The gray color was perfect for the silver in my dress and the light coral roses were an exact match. Alongside the wristlet, I made a hair piece to match and add a little something extra that no one else had.
Feather Fringe Mum
First off, I do not believe in the traditional mum that everyone has the same in. Mums are an expression of each and every person, so they should all be different. This is a mum for the country chic person that loves leather and fringe! Alongside this, there are hand-tied feather and hand printed indian head ribbon to set it apart from any other mum I have ever seen. The burlap flower is perfect for this mum since it pulls everything together.
To start off this bouquet, I hand painted the hydrangea so it would have the perfect colors to make the green roses, yet still add a pop of the hot pink. I included the purple to add an even greater pop of color on the outside of the bouquet. This is perfect for a small country wedding or a backyard wedding with the simple greens and slight pops of color.
Fishing Lure Boutonniere
One of my friends absolutely loves to go fishing and she spends a lot of her time on the lake. So, when she asked me to make her corsage and boutonniere, I knew exactly what she wanted. I found these fishing lures in some of my dads old fishing boxes. Wrapping the whole boutonniere in twine really added the country feel I was hoping for and made the fishing lures easier to place.
This is one small piece to a whole wedding arch that I arranged this summer and I absolutely fell in love with it. I wished I was the one getting married under it!! The succulents and callas compliment each other very nicely. The color of the inside of the succulents pop along with the white of the Calla Lilies. The hint of Salidago, or Goldenrod, shows through all of the greenery even though there is very few of it overall.
