Lemon Leaf Garland DIY

My recent Project Wedding Post just went live. Lemon Leaf Garland might be my favorite thing to decorate with. It makes everything instantly feel so festive. A florist will charge around $12/foot for this stuff but I made this 14 foot garland for $16. It takes a few hours but if you had some extra hands to help it goes quickly and is very straight forward. See all the instructions here.

Chairs + Linens etc from our friends at Abbey Party Rents.

Flower Party

I love Brooke from inchmark. The details from her daughter’s flower party are perfect.. Also I love party hats.

Ariella Chezar

I just bought Ariella Chezar’s out of print book Flowers for the Table. I love her work, and am especially enamored with putting interesting fruits, berries, or vegetables in flower arrangements.

Flower Polaroids

I fell into Jen Gotch’s flickr stream again the other day. I am so inspired by all the flower Polaroids. If you haven’t seen them or even seen them for a while they are worth another peek.
