Last week I filmed a promotional video with Diana Deaver of Third Wing Video. I am excited to be adding video to my website because I think that video allows people to connect in a deeper way than photos. I created the below bouquet for the video using locally grown dahlias and sweet peas along with some antique carnations, rice flower, blush spray roses, and silver brunia berries.
The next photo is the same bouquet – just the other side of it! It’s interesting how different the same bouquet is when you look at it from different angles.
Just look at this antique carnation! I cannot get enough of these. They are inexpensive and look similar to a super fluffy scabiosa or even a peony.
These are locally grown sweet peas from Yuri Hana Flower Farm. I love using sweet peas because they add an element of whimsy to every arrangement. The flowers look like butterflies.
I strive to allow some space in my bouquets so that the flowers can “breathe.” The bouquet below is a particularly “open and airy” bouquet. The bundle of sweet peas created the perfect structure for this kind of wild bouquet style.
You can really see the pink rice flower well in the next bouquet. It adds such a fun texture.
