I'm doing the flowers for a wedding this weekend. And by "doing," I mean arranging...all of them. From all the bridal bouquets to the centerpieces for the 250 person reception...I'm their flower gal.
And you know I'm excited about it! A little overwhelmed, but not by the flowers, it's by the other parts...like that my husband and son are in the wedding, which means that I'll be arranging and staging between things like the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner...and having to get myself and my family ready in time for the actual wedding. That, and driving the flowers out to the church and reception, and placing them all to make sure that everything looks unbelievable for our friends. It's going to be awesome...a lot of work, but awesome.
I'm excited too because the flowers are going to all be cut from a master gardener's garden...mixtures of fabulously wilder looking things. Envision with me for a minute...hand tied bouquets...mason jar drinks...old fashioned red/white striped paper straws...burlap and jute....old chippy paint doors and frames....you know, the kind of stuff that's right up my alley.
And just to give you a taste of what I think some of this weekend's flowers might feel like, I thought I'd post a few pictures of the flowers that I did for the bride's lingerie shower a couple of weeks ago.
I love flowers.
Went to my neighbor's garden today...I'm feeling culinarily inspired. Hope that feeling holds through the weekend since I won't have much time for cooking the next few days. Guess what I picked though today? Figs....oh sweet heaven on a tree! Yummy goodness coming up for you soon!
