From the Garden {Dahlias and Shrimp Plant}

There is nothing better than getting to play with a new variety of flower purchased from my local nurseries. This particular little photo collection by Annabella Charles was made up of our personal garden Dahlias, Bougainvillea, and Shrimp Plant (Or Justicia brandegeanas as they are known botanically). It also includes some Ranunculus from the wholesaler and the most beautiful peach muslin wrap (a new product from Oasis). It was her idea to do the heart and I absolutely loved it. It was simply exciting to see what color combinations made the flowers stand out. This season there are a lot of peach loving brides (who can blame them – it photographs so well!) , and there are many ways to add a new twist to a pastel.

Roses from the Garden {Milk Glass and Heirlooms}

We have had a bountiful year here in the south so far. Our garden seems to agree. Here are some hand picked lovelies in my milk glass collection. It was a little bit of fun with photographer Annabella Brandon and stylist Kristin Wolter-Canfield to break up the long week (and an excuse to see Annabella’s handsome newborn son).
