The Seasonal Flower Alliance- April 3

Written by

Two weeks ago we sent flowers down to floral designer McKenzie Powell for a big wedding. It’s always so rewarding to see what a true artist does with our blooms. Here palette was purple, chocolate and plum, and after seeing pictures of her end arrangements I couldn’t help but give it a whirl myself.

With just a tiny window of time before we had to leave for the airport, so I could catch my flight to Washington D.C. for a conference, I ran around the yard clipping everything I could find for this spring whopper. It’s messy and massive and was a blast to make!

    I picked every bloom in the yard, and it’s silly how excited I can get about three flowers! But that’s early spring for you. I’m really looking forward to all the other things SO close to blooming! http://threadbrushandvase.blogspot.com/

    Love your rich colors!
