It's been a busy week on the go, with lots of pretty flowers, a little bit of junk, and some cows and farm work thrown in!
Monday started off with me picking up flowers and creating wedding bouquets for a Tuesday wedding. Yes, you read that right, the wedding was on Tuesday, but I'm not sure the significance of that day. I was sent two pictures of the gorgeous stained glass windows in the church and a couple of screen shots from pinterest of flower crown ideas. The bride said she wasn't picky, wanted something to coordinate with the stained glass in shades of red, blue, purple, green, and a touch of gold.
This was her bridal bouquet! Red roses, blue hydrangeas, blue thistle, delphinium, purple larkspur, millet, hypericum berries, scabiosa pods, bronze amaranthus, and assorted greenery comprised the bridal bouquet and alter arrangements.
The bride was gorgeous and I hope to be able to feature her pictures here soon.
I think this was the first flowers crown I have made with fresh flowers! I was a little nervous about it, but think it tuned out great for her.
The bride definitely wore it better than me...The flowers were delivered Tuesday on my way to some appointments.
Hurricane Irma brought cloud cover and cool weather to East Texas on Tuesday as well. I did some mowing at the farm, while checking on the cows and horses.
This suitcase is in our booth now and it describes this week! Lots of wondering and wandering, but we aren't lost!
The fall flowers are just the prettiest and I think most elegant of the year! I love the rich and deep colors... These kind clients simply ask for fall flowers and said "we trust you." I went to the wholesale floral supply and hand picked all the flowers for the arrangements. Saturday they told me the flowers were "more than they ever could have imagined" and received so many compliments.
For this service, the family wanted bright colors, with sunflowers, blue, red, purple, and white flowers.
I came home as the sun was fading lower in the sky, with another load of rusty treasures. From farm implements and tractor parts, to old chairs, shelves, bricks, chicken crates, cages, and all kinds of rusty buckets, tools, and that huge mailbox! We've got a little surprise project we are working on and some of these new found items will surely find new life with it.
