…by Amy Merrick, of Design*Sponge, An Apple a Day and Amy Merrick Flowers and Styling. The story of the design of Amy’s site that just launched this week is fascinating. I’m as much in love with Dutch still life paintings as she is. Love her inspiration and the way it came to life.

farmers’ market inspired floral crates

We can’t wait for the farmers’ market to reopen. Fresh vegetables, yummy baked goods, beautiful, locally grown flowers…does it get any better? I love these farmers’ market inspired crates of flowers. Beautiful for a summertime wedding.

Whether they’re made of bay leaf, laurel or magnolia leaves and whether they’re complemented by dahlia, garden roses or fruit, runners always look so lush and romantic.

mothers’ bouquets

mothers flowers weddingmothers flowers wedding

I love these mothers’ bouquets that Chelsea Fuss of Frolic! styled and photographed for Project Wedding. Posies, also called nosegays, are such a sweet and modern alternative to corsages or wrislets. Whether a diminutive version of a bridesmaid’s bouquet or a small clutch of flowers that coordinate with wedding colors, posies can be carried by mothers, grandmothers, even flower girls.

winter flower inspiration from Studio Choo

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

Hello lovies…today I have pretty muscari, violet and paperwhites made into sweet and simple winter bouquets from Studio Choo.

Don’t these winter flowers look lovely in Studio Choo’s birch vase set? Birch is such a great material for winter weddings.

Be sure to also check out Jill + Alethea’s post on forcing paperwhites at Design*Sponge too.

"spider mums"

I’ve never really given much thought to spider mums (beauty above by Rosenow Floral Design), but when a client asked for floral inspiration of the happy but not girly variety, spider mums came to mind. They’re so cheerful and look a little bit like tiny fireworks, don’t they? And, of course, billy buttons (below via weddingbee) are always fun and quirky.
