Friday was an all out marathon and I feel like I’m still recovering. I was so wrapped up in the go,go,go that it wasn’t until dark when we were all loaded and on the road that I realized I hadn’t eaten since breakfast.
Buckets and buckets of bunched flowers, greens and bouquets for the most wonderful little flower shop in Seattle, Marigold and Mint. The owner Katherine Anderson has filled the space with an incredible collection of pottery, handmade soaps, stationary and the best selection of seasonal, local and usually organic flowers in town. It’s the shop every girl dreams of running!
We also had a beautiful little wedding in the mix destined for a historic mansion in the city. Chris and I both agreed if we were to do it again, the Shafer Baillie Mansion would be the place we’d get hitched.
Soaring ceilings, massive rooms, ornate wood work, leaded glass windows, a great homey romantic feel…oh, the place was truly exquisite. But the best part is that it is also a B&B, so the bridal party can stay throughout the festivities. I do believe I will direct all potential brides their way from now on!
And of course we had flowers for our weekly bouquet subscription on Queen Anne too.
This week’s offering included Garden Roses, Ranunculus, Tulips, Anemones, Leucojum, Honeysuckle and snippets of Muscarri and Frittilaria.
