holiday pots

I am feeling so much more *ready* for the cold weather, snow and holidays now that my front pots are filled with winter greens!


centerpiece inspiration

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.

fall mini sessions

It’s almost September so, naturally, I’m thinking holiday cards already. Aren’t you? Wanted to share with you a great deal if you are looking to get some photos of the kids or your family this fall. Megan Norman Photography is offering mini-sessions in October. $250 for a 20 minute session and 12 images on a disk! Click here for more details on Megan’s blog.

Remember that ‘super secret’ photo shoot that I did a post about below. Well, the website and lingerie line that I did the flowers for has now been released so here’s the info. The gorgeous lingerie is by local designer Anne Kristine, the photos were taken by the extraordinary Eliesa Johnson of Photogen, inc. This was so fun to be a part of. The website and lingerie line looks ridiculously awesome – good work Eliesa and Anne Kristine!

photo shoot

This week I got to be part of a super secret photo shoot. I worked with women who have a great design sense and they were so kind to give me the freedom to come up with whatever lovely combination of flowers that my little heart desired. So, here’s what I came up with. I loved the mix of different textures and colors together. I can’t wait until details of the shoot are released and I will definitely share them here on my blog.
