Our Woodland Bouquet In Outre' Bride
I was super excited to notified by Swatch Studios Photography that they had taken some wonderful professional wedding photos of a wedding in Toledo. I had made the bouquet for the bride. It was our Woodland Bouquet, which is truly one of my favorites. It is made of Grosso lavender, ivory and blue larkspur, basil green and dark caspia, ammobium (winged everlasting), ornamental grasses (bunny tails), golden wheat, tiny blue star flowers, and lichen.
I wanted to share the link to Outre' Bride a website that also ran the pictures as well. I posted this news on our Facebook page and Instagram a few weeks ago, but didn't around to blogging about it until now. I was making another bridal party set of Woodland bouquets today and taking some new photos and this came to mind.
Truly some beautiful photos and we were glad to be part of the special day in some small way. Our Woodland bouquets and boutonnieres can be found on our shop (click shop tab). I believe the bride here is holding a medium size bouquet. So there is one size up. They are good size bouquets. Again, one of my favorites to make!
I am so excited for fall! It's my favorite season of all. We've had some cooler days and nights lately. I must say I am enjoying the cool breezes and windows open.
It's also clean up time for the lavender fields. The new plants are growing well sans the the outer rows, which I reported earlier were becoming candy for bunnies. My husband seems to have stopped their progress. We switched from spray to granules on the deer/rabbit repellent, which seems to be working better. We also bought some cute wind chimes we put on a shepherd's stake out in the field. The noise is supposed to help keep the critters away. They do look pretty in the field. I am seeing some new growth on the munched plants.
I've been busy adding some new bouquets to the shop. First, is our Autumn Festival bouquet, which is an autumn-inspired bouquet similar to our Summer Festival bouquet. Next, is our Country Meadow Wildflower bouquet. It was born out of doing a custom design for a bride and I really loved the results. It has a very vintage feel. The last is a cute little posey that I call the Winged Everlasting and Lavender Bouquet. Winged everlasting is the name for ammobium, which is a daisy-like flower that is a native to Australia. I use ammobium as a filler in a lot of my bouquets, but I thought made a really cute little bouquet with some lavender tucked in as well.
We are looking forward to fall. We've already hit the cider mill once with the family and had a great time feeding the goats, getting apple cider and fresh peaches (still in season for a bit). Emma, our granddaughter, had a great time! Happy Fall!
