Such a cozy day inside with a fire and a great group of women. In one day we packed in all sorts of wedding flower hands on experience, bridal bouquets, corsages, bouts, crowns, and more.  As always I love to see what others create and share conversations around flowers.

That dress…My Wood Nymph dress from the Ukraine. When Jana first wrote me to inquire about a bouquet she sent a photo of this dress and I was in LOVE! Sad that I didn’t get to see it in person, but enjoying these lovely photos by Kristian Irey.  Proof that a photo shoot can still work out even if it is pouring rain.

We are planting 100 more peonies this week. All Festiva Maxima, white with beautiful red centers. There is patience required in growing peonies. I suppose there is some degree of patience required in growing anything. July, the height of peony season where we live in Alaska is good month to be a bride. Kathleen & Travis were married at the height of the season in late July. There were geometric shapes, flowers on marble, flowers in marble vases, flowers on copper stands, a geode cake, and a donut wall. Blomma Designs created the most tasty and beautiful wall of donuts for guests. I admit to taking one to my room that night to partake in the next morning. The donut was good, but the left over flowers were even better. I carted home the leftovers from installation pieces and made myself a piece for our table. Peonies are my favorite right as they start to loose there petals- when there is one or two petals on the table and more to come.
