Grance & Panache

sweet peas + ranunculus + anemones + roses

I'm so excited! I scored at the flower mart this morning! I've been asked to arrange the flowers for a very special lady's grand 60th birthday dinner this Sunday evening! She's a wonderful/successful interior designer and I know that she has a sharp eye for aesthetic, color and elegance. This is a different kind of flower styling for me because I usually like things wild and not so orderly, however, I'm going in a different direction this time: grace & panache.
to be continued...

(and thank you so much for all the nice comments left regarding my previous pics)***

Paris, je t'aime

I hope that I haven't been rude by posting all of these recent pictures! There was an overall feeling during my last trip to France and I just didn't want to split these images up. We got a lot accomplished, including finding vintage china for our wedding ceremony, eating loads of the most beautiful & delicious pastries, soaking up the rain and rainbows, enjoying the company of horses, relishing in the moment of finding perfectly placed tulle in the back of a perfectly old car, laughter with old friends, long walks in the company of love and trees, getting acquainted with the most amicable caterer in all of France, finding a temporary space called 'home' for us and our dear friends when they come in June, trying to capture & bottle my uncle's feverish scent of firewood and outdoors, noticing my mother's aging grace & astounding beauty, and did I mention, eating heaps of chocolate...Heaven. Truly.

I hope that you've been well and happy these past 2 weeks too...
