Classic and elegant wedding

I love the feeling of opening my email and seeing photos from a wedding I've done.  Elizabeth and Keith had a classic and elegant wedding filled with gorgeous peonies and hydrangeas at the Metropolitan Club of Willis Tower.  What a view!  The venue was gorgeous and this couple is so sweet.

April florals

I'm so sorry I'm behind on my blog.  Here is an arrangement and bouquet I did in April in mauve, white, and burgundy.  I love the color combination, it's so rich and elegant.  And, I really can't get enough of astrantia.  It's seriously one of my favorite flowers right now.  

DIY garden-inspired centerpiece for spring

Spring is in full bloom here in Chicago and I am loving seeing all the beautiful tree blossom and lilac in my neighborhood.  People often ask me how they can use their garden flowers to create an arrangement.  Well, last month I did a demonstration at the Macy's Flower Show on just that.  Hope you enjoy the video!  I'd love to see photos of what people create, feel free to post them in the comments!

Here is the photo of the finished product and another I did shortly after with the leftover florals.
