Wild summer bouquets

This is a wild summer bouquet that I made recently while teaching a one-on-one class. 
I like to use roses for the bouquet focal flower in mid-summer. Dahlias look amazing right now, but they just cant handle the heat, and they just sort of melt when you put them in bouquets. 
My July and August bouquets usually consist of roses, lots of wild foliage, and trailing ribbon. 
I have a few spots left in my bouquet class next week! Sign up here

june centerpiece class

I had so much fun at the June centerpiece class!
We had a small, brilliant group of women here to arrange flowers, and all of them created their own masterpieces.  We arranged and ate cheese and cake while chatting about flowers. It felt so female of us. I imagine this leisurely afternoon spent together was how everyone who has never worked with flowers thinks working with flowers is like every day. (if only that were true!) A special thanks to Megan of Noisette for the delicious treats and Kate Osborne for these wonderful photos. 

This is the last centerpiece class that I will have this year, but there are a few more intensive courses available next month. See those in the shop here. Next year I will be doing a few more of these smaller classes, some in Utah, and some elsewhere. Stay tuned this winter when we will announce those.

Flower beards

Because they are going wild on the internet this week I thought I would repost some flower beard photos from a fun afternoon collaboration a couple years back with Carissa Gallo and my husband David.

I'm cracking up reading some of the articles being written about flower beards...no hipsters aren't actually really wearing these out in real life, and no, you shouldn't wear them at your wedding. Sorry.

Adam & Kate at Dunton Hot Springs

Oh, Dunton Hot Springs.
Visiting and/or working at Dunton Hot Springs has been on my to do list for about four years, and I was so lucky to be able to do the flowers for Kate & Adam's sweet wedding there this May. 

This resort is tucked back into the most beautiful, quiet mountains.  Guests and the couple seemed to be floating around the property in absolute heaven.  The groom was talking about how excited he was for everything and said " We loved this place before, but now it is filled with 45 of our favorite people", and I thought, hey! thats just how a wedding should be! Quaint, with your closest family and friends, and in a peaceful, outdoor setting. I think they've got this whole wedding thing figured out, congratulations Adam and Kate!

Guests stayed in little luxury cabins on the property right where the wedding took place. I even saw some guests fishing in the river on site just minutes before the ceremony. Everyone ate each meal together during their stay in the main hall (which is the old mining town saloon that has been transformed into part of the resort along with the whole village).
 Casual, but truly luxurious travel at it's finest. 

Jolene planned the most simple & beautiful event for Kate & Adam. They didn't want a lot of fuss, and weren't even into anything flower-y, but somehow we talked them into letting me do the flowers. So we went wild with greenery, vines, textural stuff, and a few flowers with lots of petals, for good measure :)

Wild vine arch

Sometimes I forget to blog my favorite things. This is one of them!
This was a little collaboration with Rylee Hitchner & Ginny Au from last winter. Huge thanks to Aubrey for modeling and doing her own hair :)

Green is my favorite color. It is. I was waffling back and forth recently when someone asked me what my favorite color was, and then they said "green, do you think green is your favorite color?" It is! How did I not know?
See a DIY for how to make this wild vine arch on once wed. Beautiful photos by Rylee Hitchner.
