The colors are getting richer in the market. Antiqued pinks and greens, Japanese anemones, dahlias, and Juliet garden roses adjusting to the new palette as they did in the Spring and Summer.
I'm having an affair with a rectangle shaped container. The sharp corners seem, well, sharp, but I love the way the flowers lay out and reach away from the center. Inspite of the squared edges, the arrangement is able to behave organically.
Another blue jar wedding this weekend. We're delivering to a boat that will take the flowers out to Thompson Island in Boston Harbor. This bride is using the same containers our bride Rebecca used for her wedding in July. They are twin weddings in many ways. Both of them canned jam favors for the guests; they are both laying long tables with burlap runners and their gowns are made with beautiful lace. Both weddings are outside in a beautiful setting.
I'll try to take photos tomorrow before we pack up. Labor Day weekend marks the end of the summer. I'm having donkey withdrawal.
