asking for flowers


Aaron's friend Eric got married at the beginning of the month and since he was the Best Man I figured I needed to push my way into the wedding! So I did the flowers.

I always love the opportunity because taking a day off work and filling my house with the scent of fresh flowers is completely fun for me. I'd love to do flowers more often and especially I super love doing flowers for weddings like here and here.

And while I'm not a huge horn tooter, I'm enough of a little internet horn tooter to say, guys...this was awesome. I was a miracle worker with the budget and made some floral decisions that were like, perfect. Elizabeth and my mom both were huge help and my mom single-handedly got all the table arrangements set up while I was running around like a mad woman getting everything else set up, so they were total life savers and it all paid off.

One of the reasons I love doing flowers is putting together something lovely I wouldn't have necessarily chosen for myself; the bride Casey had an all soft and creamy palette, shades of pink and peach and white and I totally fell in love with it. Here is a boxful all snuggled together for the ride up the canyon.


I didn't get great photos once set up, but these give you the general idea..all set up on all the tables.




If only everyday was flower day!
