Floral Friday

One of my favorite parts of planning my wedding was the florals, I just love flowers!!!  My dream wedding would have been in a botanical garden in a rose garden with lanterns hanging from trees like twinkling fairies.  A secret garden. We did our best to create a similar atmosphere at my parent’s lake house with lanterns and roses.

Well, my love for flowers didn’t die with my wedding bouquet, I still love to be surrounded by them.  In fact I almost considered being a florist as a career change before I realized that I have trouble keeping even a fern alive.  So when Alex isn’t looking, I steal our grocery money and buy flowers along with our usual milk and seaweed snacks at Trader Joe’s!  This week I picked three different kinds of flowers and got them all for under $12.99!  Score.

I’ve been focusing a lot on design lately since we are decorating our new place, and any good interior designer will tell you that fresh flowers are the finishing touch.  In fact, I challenge you to find a photograph in a home magazine of any room without some sort of botany.  I’m so eager to show you pictures of my new place, but it’s just not quite ready!   So this will serve as a little sneak peek!  I just love how playful pink ranunculus in a mason jar can lighten up a kitchen island or open shelving…

Sunflowers belong on a window sill basking in the sun, and even this bouquet of a filler flower brightens up this little entryway table.

Which reminds me:  Bridey brides who haven’t had to throw away their dried up bouquet yet, here are some awesome florists I recommend in the area!

Have a beautiful weekend!!

LOVE that turquoise vase. Do you remember where you bought it? Such a gorgeous color – it really makes those sunflowers pop!
