bundles of bliss

bon soir! i hope all is well with you. i’ve been working to get ready for the show and can’t wait to start honing in on fun details like flowers. yesterday got me in the mood and now i want to think about the arrangements and vignettes since the walls, floors, furniture and lighting is basically ready.

actually anything looks great as long as flowers are involved. books too. but there is an art to it. flower arranging 101. i look at these shots and try to  learn so much from these brilliant stylists and photographers, not to mention the artful arrangers.

we’ll go to the wholesale flower district in the city on west 28th street between 6th and 7th avenues and load up. if you’re in the city it’s definitely a great place to check out.

i guess i went a little overboard gathering inspiration pics but it’s good to have a lot to mull over.  don’t you love having  un  fleur by the bed even if it’s something tiny?

well i hope you have a night of sweet scented dreams and may flower petals paint your cheeks as you drift off…night!

    Lovely seletion of flowers. I love the idea of using old tins as vases. I have some nice tea tins that will be adorable for this purpose!

    Your post is making me hunger for Spring. Seems so far away here in New England.

    Sadly, floral arranging is not my thing, but these photos make me want to keep trying! I usually add single blooms to small vases around the house beacause it’s so easy :)
    Have a fabulous day!

    These floral arrangements are beautiful. I love asymmetrical floral arrangements with long leafy branches or feathers draping off to one side. Now, I am wishing I lived near a fresh flower market to create a few of these on my own. I guess I’ll have to wait for my own flowers to blossom this spring.

    Keep us posted on your show progress.
