Today’s flowers are an array of colors and spring florals – from lilac, ranunculus, poppies, sweet peas to tulips. The client wanted something “elegant” for her colleague who was leaving on a maternity leave. So I wanted to make it elegant and beautiful but really capture the joy and vibrance of celebrating a new life. I think lilacs provide an instant uplift with their flowing innocent blooms and heavenly scent. And… I think I have fallen in love with the purple poppy.
Check out the latest issue of “Pre-mo,” a magazine for expectant mothers (pre-mom). I had the pleasure of styling the cover and interview pages of the cover model and local celebrity, Suzanne. I love how happy she looks on this cover, I mean, she was gleaming! And the flower crown could not have looked sweeter. Much congrats to her baby boy and a huge hurray to the new mom – as of last week!
Winter has officially arrived. And tis the season to cuddle up in my silk duvet, snuggle my feet in fluffy socks, sipping hot wine while indulging on nightly DVDs – pure bliss. Another blissful wintry pleasure is the flower market. It’s filled with spring flowers from tulips to ranunculus to sweet peas, to cherry blossoms and … my gosh the list continues with some of the prettiest (to me!) flowers. Making bouquets with these fresh spring florals is so theraputic. I love the way these soft stems spread in the palm of my hands and how the sweet scent lingers.
If only getting up on cold dark mornings were a bit easier…
