I’m way behind on my blogging but I wanted to be sure to post some gorgeous photos from weddings that we’ve done these last 9 months. Here is a wedding from June when we got to work with one of the sweetest bride’s ever! Thank you Michelle Huber Photography for the beautiful images.

This weekend I am going to start putting together some Thanksgiving centerpieces and here are a few photos of bouquets and arrangements that are inspiring me! I am excited by these color combinations and the mix of textures. Can’t wait to post what I come up with.

Every year at this time I struggle to come up with something to put in place of evergreens in our pots. It’s definitely time for the winter greens to go but it’s not quite warm enough in Minnesota to plant anything — you can, but there aren’t many options right now and there is still a good chance that it can get below freezing some nights. So, what do we do for these weeks or couple of months in-between seasons? Well, here’s what I did this year, quince branches and mood moss. It’s simple, fresh, and won’t break the bank so it’s a perfect option for your pots for these next 6 weeks or so. You could also use any other flower branch or pussy willow in place of the quince.
Happy Potting. Anyone have plans for what they will plant when the weather warms up? I’m thinking all green in mine this year but then again I think I head that direction ever year and when it comes down to it I am so ready for some bright color!
Here’s the spring pot with Quince and Mood Moss. I would love to hear what you all are putting in your pots right now!

I was beyond thrilled to hear that a wedding we did in October was featured on Style Me Pretty this week. If you aren’t familiar with Style Me Pretty, I highly suggest you add is to your daily dose of inspiration list. I feel so lucky to have had the chance to work on this beautiful wedding with the lovely bride and groom and so many other great vendors and the gracious + so talented Eliesa of Photogen Inc in particular.

I’m sharing this DIY rosewater toner post with you for many reasons.
1. Elizabeth Dehn of Beauty Bets is the bee’s knees. She knows her shtuff!
2. It sounds luxurious, fresh and lovely. Perfect way to kick off spring.
3. You can make it yourself – easy.
4. I found it fitting to post about since it calls for fresh flowers, rose petals to be exact.
I haven’t made this yet but I plan to. Now, if only I could find the perfect little glass bottle.
2 cups of fresh-picked rose petals
2 1/4 cups distilled water
1/4 cup witch hazel (optional)
1. Place petals in a pot and pour distilled water over to cover.
2. Bring to a boil then immediately turn off the heat.
3. Remove pot from burner and cover. Let sit to cool, for about an hour.
4. Strain rosewater into a sterile container or spray bottle.
5. If your skin is combination or oily, add the witch hazel.
Rosewater is naturally clarifying, tightens pores and reduces redness. To use, moisten a cotton ball with the rosewater and swipe over clean skin before moisturizing. For a little more luxury, add the rosewater to a hot bath. This toner will keep for five days at room temperature, or two weeks in the fridge.
