Recent burlap blooms

I had a few boutonnieres featured recently in a Seattle Bride article about bouts made of non-perishable materials (that's me! numbers 3 and 10 above), which led to these fun pictures of Chelsea and Ian's handsome groomsmen and ringbearer.  Ian saw the article (I love a groom that reads a wedding mag!) and five days before the wedding decided he had to change his flower-fashion plans.  Short notice be damned...I move mountains for boys that care about flowers.

Have a weekend that is just like this patio...

Holy dahlias.  It's technically the flip side of August.  Make the most of your late summer weekend with a relaxing, quiet soak in the sun, maybe with a refreshing beverage and a book.

(Or peruse more pretty pictures of
the upstate New York escape that includes this sunny corner.  I wonder if they take weekend guests?)

Lacecap & Linen

A recent bouquet, created for a lookbook and some very talented photographers.  Lacecap hydrangea, Ilse roses, sweet pea, poppy pods, blush protea, stock, foxtail grass, this and that clipped from the garden...

The OTHER Kate from across the pond...

Spectacular photos from Kate Moss's recent wedding to Jaime Hince...but would you expect anything less from Mario Testino?  Or one of the most photographed women in history?  Or anyone wearing a custom Galliano gown?  Or anyone posing with a flock of flower girls and a pageboy that look like they fell out of A Midsummer's Night's Dream?  Pretty, pretty, pretty!

The tee pees?  For the kids to play in!  More photos to appear in September Vogue.
