Wanted to share these pictures of the latest bouquet I made using 100% wool felt, vintage buttons, cotton embroidery thread and silk satin ribbon. I also integrated several family heirloom pieces given to me by my friend Jen, who commissioned this bouquet for her stepmother and father’s wedding.
It’s surprisingly difficult for me to find navy-colored materials that satisfy me–the fabric and thread options i find often either read too cobalt or too black to me, so I fix it by dying the materials or mixing lighter and darker shades of navy together to visually create the “big picture” navy I was going for. I also included shades of white, and coral, which is another hard color to match. When someone says “red” that usually means one thing. “Coral” can be interpreted so many different ways so I tend to dance around lots of different shades.

I made this bouquet last week for Claire and Josh’s wedding this past Saturday! It was a quick job but turned out perfectly.
Congratulations, Claire and Josh! I wish you a lifetime of happiness together.

Sue and Harry gave me the honor of creating the flowers for their June wedding in London, where guests will enjoy a spot of afternoon tea and a very personal and fun afternoon. I love casual weddings like this and I tried to capture the carefree elegance that Sue communicated to me.
One of the things Sue took great inspiration from for their decor and theme is pennant bunting! So instead of cutting out lots of regular leaves like I would normally do, I made pointed green triangular “leaves” and arranged them like bunting on the side of the bouquet.
More photos of Sue and Harry’s flowers are here in their Flickr set, and if you’re interested in ordering something similar you can always e-mail me or fill out my bridal inquiry form and we’ll get started.
Congratulations again to Harry and Sue, and I can’t wait to see the professional photos after the lovely event!
