Sweet peas and stock

There isn't a sweeter flower than sweet pea! If it's a June wedding you are planning it pays to plant a hearty row of sweet peas to celebrate the grand occasion! It's worth the effort and armloads of this beauty are the reward! Stock is another amazing yummy smelling flower and can be grown in the home garden fairly easily. These are more easily grown by purchasing the plant and forgoing the seed start.

Shower flowers

Flowers for a shower don't need to be extravagant but they do need to be bright and fresh!
A few bunches of Kermit mums and daisy mums make this centerpiece perfect! Add a bunch of tulips and the party can begin!

I love creating a little vinyette from what is at hand. We all have these things in our closets and it only takes moments to pull the look together.

White Daisy Wedding...

An outdoor wedding, set on a farm, calls for Daisies! They come in a variety of sizes and shapes. See how well these mix together!
Simple centerpieces are designed by using several sizes of canning jars. Different heights and textures are created with the array of jars.
Herbs such as mint and scented geraniums fill the air with a sweet arroma!

Show stopper reception flowers are simple and delightful. Curly willow is used to extend the height of the design and Queen Annes Lace finishes the arrangement.
