Late Summer | Simplicity

Holy Canoli, it's mid August already.  

I FINALLY have some time to "relax" and catch up today and it's been wonderful.  In two weeks I'll be home in PA for one of my favorite human being's weddings.  Liz, I hope you're not reading this, but I kinda hope it's a hot one.  I miss the heat and humidity of home.  Liz is the coolest.  Our bridesmaid dresses are made out of RECYCLED PAPER.  They are low-cut and really expose our arms so I've been trying to do 20+ push ups a day.  Wish I woulda started back in June, but oh well. I'm up to 28 boy push-ups, (don't be too impressed, they're not all in a row.)

In September The Little Petunia will be releasing a really pretty new line of vased arrangements.  Tonal flowers in beautiful, handmade footed vases from Amanda Wright Pottery.  It's got me thinking about simplicity.  I don't know if this is true of other florists, but after making intricate, thoughtfully sourced and composed arrangements all day long, the only thing I want to enjoy at home is a bunch of single varietal flowers.  

So that is the idea with these new arrangements.  A mass of mostly one exquisite type of flower in a simple, for-keeps, hand thrown ceramic vase.

Below is some of my inspiration for color palette and texture...

Hope you like the new arrangements we are whipping up for you.  Have a wonderful Sunday :)
