Baby Showers Bring Nice Flowers

Had the pleasure of working on the florals for a dear friend's baby shower!!! She is a flower enthusiast, and knows her stuff, so I had my work cut out for me. The rules were reds and purples, and ASTILBE!!! So here's what we got:

The suspects involved were: Delphinium, Dahlia, Stock, Anemone, Astilbe, Raspberry Branch, Bouvardia...and maybe one or two slipped star for anyone who finds the one that got away...

Musings on a balloon plant

Normal people, upon receiving a beautiful new pitcher courtesy of their awesome mom (thanks MAMA!), would probably fill it with garden roses, brew a cup of tea, and call it a day. I would have done the same*, had I not discovered these at the market. They stopped me dead in my tracks. So here's what happened instead:

* Full disclosure: when I say tea, I definitely mean a glass of wine.
