recent florals: insta-blooms
happy monday everyone! i realized i haven't shared recent arrangements in a while so did a little instagram photo-download. the photo above was the bouquet from this past weekend's wedding - the bride was so happy, which made me even happier :) below is a little boutonniere i created using lemon blossoms and leaves from our backyard. i was just kind of playing around with it because i always thought citrus blossoms would be pretty in a boutonniere - turns out they smell amazing,...

LLD wedding DIY: driftwood arch {pretty huge task, but doable!}
{image from my iPhone, shared via instagram} Remember C+C's wedding that I was prepping for in May? I'm pretty sure I mentioned the driftwood arch but had never really gone in to the details of how we built it. Cary had mentioned that she envisioned a beachy, driftwood arch and of course I said "no problem!" I had never built an arch before but that wasn't going to stop me from trying. After searching the flower mart and asking my SF florist friends where I could get one, I was not able to...

Lovely Little Holiday DIY: Egg Carton “Golden Bells” Garland
{all images taken with my personal camera or iPhone} No joke I have been telling Pat not to throw away our empty egg cartons for the past 2 months. But he knows now not to ask "why" anymore, haha :). I've had this idea in my head for a while and finally gave it a whirl last night, and I'm perfectly OK with how it came out slightly imperfect. Here's what you need: Empty egg cartons Gold spray paint Box cutter or Xacto knife Pretty string - I chose a teal multi-tie raffia from World...
