So we met with ‘a’ florist yesterday. I haven’t said THE, though who knows…we might choose her. We get a proposal from her at the end of the week, so if it all looks good, we will likely just eliminate the need to search for more and pick her (she came on recommendation).
I wanted to share a new plant I was introduced to…the monkey tail fern. Didn’t even know they existed! Pretty cool if I do say so, and they look great in bouquets! (She also said you can fry and eat them…though she never had tried)
I got really excited when I realized that my wedding was going to be in August. November (which we had originally planned) has some nice blooms too, but its not August. There are so many amazing seasonal blooms during the summer, and the color palate is pretty expansive. So lovely.
Alchemilla, Allium, Alstromeria, Amaranthus, Baby’s Breath , Bird of Paradise, Calla lily, Campanula, Carnation, Chrysanthemum, Cockscomb, Cosmos, Dahlia (might be my new favorite flower), Delphinium, Dianthus, Didiscus, Euphorbia, Foxglove, Freesia, Gardenia, Genista, Ginger, Gladiolus, Hallaconia, Heather, Hydrangea, Hypericum, Iris, Kangaroo paw, Liatrus, Lilac, Casa Blanca Lily, Gloriosa Lily, Star Gazer, Lisianthus, and more oh my!!!
Looking forward to chatting with some florists and getting that locked down too! Maybe their advice will change the color palate I have in mind. Do I work with the flowers, or do I have the flowers work with me. Either way, its gonna be lovely.
We so a Secret Schwartz (Santa) at work during the holidays every year….and I got my first gift today….
I’m excited to find out who it is, and curious if this gift was a fluke, or if they ACTUALLY know me..
An orange gerber daisy! My current favorite color, and my favorite flower! So cute. (Don’t mind the mess)
Yesterday was the first day of fall, though in San Francisco you would never know it. We got a heat wave, and I believe it was throughout California. It got me thinking about the fact that I’ve never really known seasons. I’ve experienced them, but having grown up in California my whole life, the transition is minimal, and the year passes by without any real visible changes.
This past year, we drove up to Seattle on a whirl-wind errand that we had to run for Mick’s office. We literally left Saturday morning, and flew back Sunday. Though the drive up was worth the 15 hours + we spent in the car. We drove the long way for the pure sake of the scenery, and considering our trip was in October-ish, the highway was amazing. The colors in the Northwest were at their boldest, and you could definitely tell it was fall. I think that if I lived anywhere the seasons were a bit more prevalent, I’d be more likely to take the inspiration of the leaves and use that as a theme for a wedding, though the timing and location would have to be perfect. Its so warm and inviting…isn’t it?
