Wedding, wedding, wedding. Just when all the planning started to feel overwhelming and scary, it got fun again. Yesterday I met with my florist, Elaine McCord. Even though I'm making bouquets for me and the bridesmaids, I need some help with centerpieces. Elaine is even going to use some of my felt flowers in the centerpieces to bring it all together--how cool is that?! To be honest, I'm not crazy about big bunches of froufrou flowers, but I love fiddlehead, lotus seed pods, and lamb's ear. Yes, those are their actual names! Now that I've seen them, I'm excited about our floral arrangements. I feel so contrary; my favorite flowers aren't flowers!
|Whether you call them fern curls, fiddleheads, or monkey tails, they remind me of Tim Burton. |
And I find them quite compelling. As seen at the Chicago Bridal Fair.
