Springing Forward...and we're back!

So after a very long (unintended!) hiatus from this blog, we're back, and we're busy working on posting the hundreds (almost thousands, literally) of photos from the past 12-18 months.

As we work behind the scenes to get the photos and the stories uploaded on this slushy, snowy, rather dreary first full day of spring, here are some snapshots of some blooms that I hope will inspire you to feel bright and sunny and hopeful that it will be spring-like soon!

Featured in The Knot: Greystone Wedding

I was excited to see my wedding in the Spring/Summer 2013 edition of the knot - it's always wonderful to see how a vision comes together and to see my happy bride and groom!

Scanned images are below. Please read my blog post, Garden to Table, to see even more pictures from this beautiful wedding!

Holiday Wedding

The time between the end of November and January 1 is pretty crazy - but it's also a great time to get married! Everyone is in the mood to celebrate, and what better reason than to gather for a wedding.

This early December wedding kept the color palette simple - white with deep wine velvety cloths for the reception - and on a very cold and windy early winter day, it was perfect.

Especially lovely was the Washington Memorial Chapel in Valley Forge National Historical Park - gorgeous!

Flowers pictured include: hydrangea, snapdragon, wax flower, stock, calla lilies, monidal roses, gardenias,  ranunculus, Israeli ruscus, salal.

Thanksgiving: Celebrating the Harvest

Happy Thanksgiving!

Just a quick peek at the flowers I created for a private home today. Entertaining over forty people for Thanksgiving can be daunting, but a lovely space and flowers in the colors of the season help create the perfect setting to celebrate and give thanks. What guest wouldn't love to sit down to a beautifully set table?

More on what flowers and materials I used tomorrow - for now, whether you are just getting ready to serve a crowd or you are just finishing up, I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
