Wedding Flowers..

Hello ..  . it is a beautiful fall day today.. just put an apple crisp in the oven and started a pot of my favorite fall soup.. Butternut squash ( from our garden )with apples..

Just wanted to share a story with you and a couple pictures…

A few months back a good friend of mine asked me to help her daughter with the flower arrangements for her oldest daughters wedding.. I had helped with hers too..

For months we had been scouring Thrift shops for glass bowls with Silver plate rims.. together we collected 21 of them and 4 small ones .. Ashley, the brides sister used the looking glass spray paint to give them all the mercury glass look.. they came out beautiful..

Friday, her and I set up shop in one of my barns and got to work.. it took us about 8 hours to get all the arrangements done.. they were in the purple, plum and eggplant shades.. we had to do a little improvising because when we went to pick up the flower order it had not come in  ( they had somehow switched the pick up date) .. so we used purple hydrangeas , spider mums and purple tulips,instead of the daliahs, purple kale and deep purple carnations.. along with the flowers they had in stock that we had chosen to you.. the same look was achieved..( we did have to raid my husbands garden of all his kale to give it some greens )..

The wedding was beautiful and the flowers were a hit.. just goes to show you .. you can’t worry if things don’t go EXACTLY as planned.. just do your best..

The best was I brought one of the arrangements home and it looks wonderful on my coffee table.. lucky me

Have a great week.

Love and peace,
