Love/List: Fresh Cut Flowers

| Life, Love/List

One of my favorite things about June and July is that I can head out to my garden and cut a bouquet of fresh flowers for my kitchen counter or nightstand. My husband’s grandpa used the be the head groundskeeper for his city, so our gardens have the most amazing flowers in them.

My favorites: my peonies, my poppies and most of all, my 6 hydrengea plants. There’s nothing better than walking into the house after a long day at work and seeing a vase full of fresh cut blooms + having their fragrance fill the house. I love it!

So pretty, right?

What’s your favorite flower?

3 Custom Wedding Bouquet Ideas

| Inspiration, Wedding Ideas

Flowers are such an important part of your wedding day because they are one thing that end up in almost every wedding photo, and they help distinguish your wedding style. Whether you are having an elegant, upscale wedding with lillies and roses or a homespun, rustic wedding with handpicked flowers, there are ways to add your own personality and style into each bouquet.

I’ve highlighted 3 different ideas for bouquets: Simple, Colorful and Decorative.


Sometimes, less really is more. With these bouquets, I love the monochromatic colors and hot they only incorporate one or two different flower types. They’re gorgeous, right?

If you’re looking to add a burst of color into your flower choice, then there are lots of options and lots of flowers types you can incorporate. What I love about each of these bouquets is that there are so many different flower types added in and it creates a rustic, vintage look. Total gorgeousness.

This is an idea that I SO wish I would have incorporated into my wedding. Adding a vintage brooch, a family heirloom such as a hankercheif, burlap or birch bark can add an amazing look to your bouquet. Plus, it’s a great way to get in your something old, new, borrowed or blue.
