Purple Dahlias {a little practice}

I was told once by a successful floral designer, whom I admire, that all she did was practice  with every flower she could get her hands on; especially in the beginning. I also recently saw a video/article that really hit home in this regard. It is my belief  and that of my dear friends Annabella Charles (she took these glorious photos) and Kristin Wolter that if we keep following our passions, honing our craft, and practicing what we love to do we will always be improving our creative talents. So sometimes even in the middle of a busy time I will make time to practice with colors I don’t normally use or challenge myself. Now you can enjoy the fruits (and pecans) of our labor below!

Beauty in Botany {Magnolia Rouge Feature}

            Magnolia Rouge published its second edition under the new name and the magazine is a treasure trove of real weddings, style, and more! Kate (the director) was able to use two seperate photo shoots from our group in the magazine and we thought we would share the lovely botanical beauty here on the blog. It’s an ode to the lithograph and fern lovers alike and includes a bunch of fresh Helleborus mixed with lively little puffs of Acacia and four different types of ferns to name just a few floral ingredients. With stylist Kristin Wolter from Everbloom Designs and Annabella of Annabella Charles Photography, we mapped out the details of a decorated repast of salads, spritzers, and sweets that include edible pansies.
