I spent yesterday helping my cousin do her wedding flowers. (I was a florist in a former life-college and early marriage).
We worked from noon until 9PM.
I had a lot of fabulous helpers: My cousin, her mom, my daughter, my mom and my husband even helped a little bit-he always does! They did a lot, mostly wrapping individual pieces of the corsages and boutonnieres (Spelling??) so that I could put them all together. All of our fingers are bare of skin and very sore this morning.
We made 17 boutonnieres, 4 corsages, 4 bridesmaid bouquets, 2 maid of honor bouquets, 2 flower girl bouquets, and a bridal bouquet. She will be doing the flowers for her table on her own. She is using lovely silk purple and ivory ranunculus.
I didn't want to give too much away since the wedding is still a little ways away but my pictures aren't that great either so you just get a hint on what things really look like. I am sure I will post much better photos after the wedding!
It is going to be a lovely wedding. It has been a few years since I did wedding flowers so it was a lot of fun to do them-plus it meant being with family all day.
Oh, I can't forget the flower girls...
No quilting this weekend unless I squeeze some in while my family sits through the superbowl-waiting for commercials. Still- a lot of creative time, so maybe I will make it through the week.
