Fall Wedding!

This one is the throwaway!

This last one is the Brides Bouquet!

I love Fall Weddings and it this was the first time I was able to do fall floral arrangements for a grandson (the other wedding was spring). Spring and summer weddings are beautiful, but the flowers for fall are spectacular. And, another blessing was the fact that hubby performed both ceremonies for the grandsons. (Grandson number 1 was in May of this year). As many of you have guessed I love floral design. I went to school many years ago in Memphis Tennessee and have been doing it ever since. Flowers (real or faux) just seem to make people smile! Now on to the particulars, there was 3 bridesmaids and of course the brides, and a throwaway bouquet. The flowers were purchased at Hobby Lobby, who can resist that store? The flowers were hand held and then just spaced properly then taped together with floral tape. I then tied ribbon around the stems and made a bow for the bottom of each. There was no one to take pictures when I was putting them together, sorry bout that. When I am finished with every design, I spray a sealer on it to protect the flowers. Then with most I use a (this one was mulberry) season appropriate scent to spray on them. I had so much fun with these, I hope you enjoy them also. Please go over to check out Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch (link follows). You will be amazed at the talent these ladies have.
Have a blessed and wonderful day!
