Fall has so much to offer in it's seasonal florals, fruits and flavors. Rich autumnal palettes of reds, oranges, ambers and even deep purples grace farms, fields and flowers stands. A trip to the pumpkin patch offers gourds in yellows and greens, pumpkins in every hue of orange and every shape from tiny and round to large and voluminous. Despite the offering of golden yellow and bright orange, we can't help our love of pure white pumpkins. These pale gourds look so classic for any Fall event. Place them down a rustic wood table as a quick and modern centerpiece, stack them in towers on your doorstep, tie a name tage on the stem of a little one as the perfect place setting... Whatever your decor for the season, these all white beauties look clean and sophisticated while still setting a tone for the season.

We spend a lot of time with flowers. We thought it would be fun to show you some of our favorite ways the beauty of botanicals informs other aspects of our lives. Flowers inspire artists and designers to create bold prints, glamourous fashions, object d'art and even outrageous accessories. Whether you love the chipped floral teapot of your grandmother, a simple still life you picked up at the flea, a pair of faded socks or a well worn pair of shoes, relish in the beauty of a small floral object you treasure.

Autumn Approaches...

Its hard to believe with all this warm weather that October is half way over. This morning as the fog rolled in and the crisp air greeted me at the door, I remembered why I love the advent of Autumn...
Cozy nights with a cup of tea and a magazine, walking in the evening twilight, crisp leaves crunching underfoot, scarves and mittens and boots with tights, blankets piled at the foot of the bed, pumpkins and warm treats and all that the Fall season has to offer. Welcome.

We saw this vintage illustration and couldn't pass up the chance to post it. How fabulous would it be to open the door and find this waiting for you? Everyone deserves a surprise this big every once in awhile... and an armful of flowers can be just the thing.

Love is Sweet... the Video

We recently did the florals and event design for Dessert Darling's (Jenny Alden) wedding. It was full of bright colors, delicious details and whimsical design. Jenny just sent us this beautiful film of the wedding and the intimate moments leading up, all shot by Aqua Vivus... such a wondeful way to capture your one big day and enjoy it for years to come. Check out Jenny's blog for more posts about her wedding.
