I know you don’t want to read one more blog post about how time is moving at the speed of light, but please let me get this out of my system: How the #$!% is Thanksgiving next week?!

Choosing a favorite season as a florist is like choosing your favorite baby; but I’m saying it — Fall is my favorite season for flowers. Bold, rich colors. Beautiful greenery. Lots of texture. It’s just yummy.

Yesterday I spent my birthday eating gourmet cupcakes and working on two weddings. This was one of them. The bride wanted something casual and seasonal for her outdoor barn ceremony (which I love the idea of, and there’s lots of inspiration on Pinterest if you love it, too) full of her favorite flower, sunflowers. We got a case of these beautiful “firewalker sunflowers” that look like the petals have been hand-painted with a light wash of beautiful rusty red. I mixed them with confetti roses, rosehips, green hydrangea, orange spray roses, and yellow buttons with a few dried pods for texture for her bouquet, and kept her attendant bouquets simple with a few sunflowers and green hypericum berries wrapped in raffia.

It’s officially our last autumn-themed wedding of the season, and now that I’ve packed it all up, I’m a little sad to see it go!

Next week is all about Thanskgiving centerpieces, and then it’s on to the red and white blooms of the Christmas season through Valentine’s Day. I’ll be soaking in as much color as I can until the last stem is snipped.

Have a lovely weekend!

    this is completely irrelevant, but I think the (your?) dog is simply adorable! May I ask, what breed is it? Sorry it’s so out of the point. Anyway, lovely arrangements, I could never have done it myself :)

    Beautiful arrangements as usual! Those colours are amazing, and so distinctly autumnal! Happy birthday for yesterday! It sounds like you are indeed another year wiser :)
