Spring is finally here! This week there were so many lovely spring flowers and colors to share.
This sweet bouquet of Lilies of the Valley brings to mind Royal Weddings and is a lovely understated way to celebrate with spring flowers. Katie from Old Slate Farm created this bouquet for a shoot with Ashley D Photo and add short tails of silk ribbon for this bridesmaid bouquet.
Folchi Creative and Stem Floral Studio collaborated on this spring bouquet shoot which was featured last week on Wedding Sparrow. This beautiful bouquet contained all the best of spring flowers, with hellebores, sweet peas and ranuculus.
For Easter, I shares some photos from last year. Here is an undyed white egg, blown, with a pressed and dried Snow Drop. I really love the simplicity of how this Easter Egg Decorating came out, and it stored well, as after a year packed away, they still look pretty much exactly the same.
Also a little peek of grape hyacinth from my garden.
Also in the spring theme, I shared some of my favorite spring themed editorial shoots and made a statement on the recent hate crimes against Asian Americans.
This spring engagement shoot took place at Old Slate Farm and featured both their spring flowers and an adorable lamb. Auburn + Ivory included all sorts of lovely details from a flower basket, to long trailing blue tails of our Blue Bell Silk Ribbon. Beautiful photos by Jenny Haas.
I also re-shared this amazing shoot at Chateau De Bonneval. Photos by Mary Kate Steele planned and designed by Amanda Writesman from The Bridal Theory.
Lastly, due to the alarming uptick in hate crimes against Asian Americans this year, I felt that I needed to reiterate the following:
”No matter who you are, where you or your ancestors are from, who you love, what you believe in or don’t, what you look like, how you dress, etc., this tiny business supports you, celebrates you and your love, wants you to be safe, and cherishes your unique talent and joy. I wish it wasn’t necessary to say that, but so many people need to hear it right now. Hate is not welcome here, but you are.”
