styled winter shoot

There is nothing better than a friend calling to ask if you can put together something lovely for an adorable couple - it's so great to be able to share a little floral piece or two and hope it makes someone's day!  Bonus when that friend happens to be an incredibly talented photographer and there are gorgeous photos to inspire afterward!  Thank you so much Dayna of Dayna Mae Photography  - this winter couple is making me all kinds of cozy!  Perfect doses of fun and joy and sweet and romantic, a festive splash of red on a perfect wintry Michigan day.  These are so warm and perfect and please see more images and Dayna's adorable story from the day here.

Holiday arrangements for the home

Happy New Year!  I love the festive holiday season, for lots of reasons!, and I always look forward to going to the floral wholesaler with all kinds of foliages and textures and blooms that we don;t see the rest of the year.  Silver and gold gilded branches - check!  Wonderfully fragrant juniper with festive blue berries - check!  There's a lot of sniffing and touching and it's very much a kind in the candy store type experience.  

I'm so grateful to the warm and talented Melanie Reyes of Melanie Reyes Photography for entrusting me to create two arrangements as gifts, and also for photographing them for me so I can share these gorgeous images.  This is such a gift for me - thank you Melanie!

Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays everyone!  It's been a great busy time of holiday and wedding arrangements, and I whipped up these eclectic arrangements with the left-over flowers.  Off to find a nursing home where I hope these will make someone's day!   What a pleasure this is - thank you all for your support this year, and all the best to you and your families this holiday season!
