Flowers can be casual and beautiful. I paired some chrysanthemums with lemon balm I got at the Oak Park Farms Market and loved how effortless it was. The mason jar really captures the casual vibe.

With summer almost over (really sad face) I couldn't forget to include an arrangement with some beautiful zinnias. The color is so vibrant and cheerful you can't help but smile when you see them. I immediately think of summer! I paired them with some cosmos, lemon balm, lisianthus, and greenery.
I went back to my favorite vendor (www.petalsfarm.org) at the Oak Park Farmers Market this past weekend and got more gorgeous peonies. How can I resist, really!? I'm kind of obsessed with this last arrangement and may have taken too many photos, so please forgive me. And, I got these really cool icy-blue frosted vases that were perfect with the flowers I got.
Some of the arrangements are just peonies then I started to add. One is ranunculus and peonies and the other has ranunculus, peonies and some greenery. What do you think? Which one is your favorite?
This past weekend I went with the family to the Oak Park Farmers Market and found some amazing locally grown flowers from the wonderful people at Petals Farm in Huntley, Illinois (check them out: www.petalsfarm.org). They had the most beautiful allium which I LOVE but never really get to work with. I brought them home and had a little fun. Here are some photos. Enjoy!
