Simple wrist corsages of hot pink spray roses, green hypericum berries, orange waxflower and orange sheer ribbon. In the rear of the photo artfully blurred, (haha) are orange spray rose boutonnieres. This still seems to be a popular color combo.

More of Amanda Shea. I'm really enjoying having photos of wedding flowers in context, it's good to remember that what you make has a person behind it.

Amanda Shea

Here is the lovely princess Amanda Shea holding her scepter bouquet from last post. Hydrangeas, tulips and ranunculus, wrapped in lace and crystal beads. There was a lot of pretty happening at this wedding, it will take a few posts to share it.

under the hood

Here is a lovely "scepter" style bouquet of hydrangea, tulips and ranunculus. The handle of this bouquet is about 1&1/2' long, hence the scepter moniker. If you look below you can see that some of the stems are quite short, so to create the illusion I've used headless stems of flowers to give it length. These are going to be some great bouquets and I will post the finished product tomorrow or Sunday.

green parrot tulips

I cut these wonderful green parrot tulips last night from the yard, (they were completely closed) in the hopes that they would do their thing and yes, they were happier to see me than the cats (who, in their defense still had food.) Here they are in a milk pitcher on the back porch.

lilac and plum blossom bowl 2

Actually I think I like this shot better.


I was just wondering why i was awake this early on a Sunday, these tulips seems like a good enough reason. Now go back to enjoying your coffee or whatever stimulating beverage you're into.
