Flowers in two houses and a Rascal

Early Sunday morning, we drove up to Hamilton Hall (which was a house) in Salem to set up a wedding.  The Ballroom was upstairs. Marisa was a Sprite, running up and down with centerpieces, hedgerows and vases.  The day was bright and cold with Spring budding out in the adjacent park where the couple would be married.  Luckily, we only had flowers for the house.

Hedgerows of Jasmine, Miranda garden roses, french tulips, french ranunculus and passion flower vine.

California ranunculus was the standout in the bride's bouquet, even against the beaufiful red peonies.

At MY house, Yves Piaget garden roses were a gift from a vendor who told me they were old.  I think he was mistaken because these Babies were tight and fresh.  The fragrance is heady.

And here is Rascal Max stripping bark off a willow stool.

A pause from the hard work of destroying yet another piece of furniture.

Jane at Small But Charming is hosting another Flowers in the House Monday to shake off the week's distastrous events.  You can see what others have mustered up for their house flowers here.

I love your mantle arrangement, they're one of my favorite arrangements to do.

I wish we had a close up of the centerpieces, they look like heaven.

And I know those roses smell like heaven.

sweet, sweet gift.

Those boys are a match made in pet hell. You should see me distressed leather chair.

well it was old and falling apart BG ( before Gus) now it's a scratching post.

maybe I should get some willow furniture?

Those arrangements are so beautiful, delicate like lace. I love love love the red bouquet; so vibrant. And Max, what can I say? Namesake babies!

What a lucky bride and groom... I am sure they were over the moon surrounded by such beauty. The depth of colors is exquisite! The gift of roses is always welcome and such a pretty pink, at that! The rascally rabbit looks quite pleased with himself. Sending warm thoughts, wishes for peaceful days and healing your way.

Hedgerows in the house! I've never seen anything like it and I LOVE it. It's perfect.

That piece on the mantel is really wonderful. It looks like a natural spring garden. I think I know what little park you're talking about. It's right next to my favorite house in Salem. Well, one of them.

Pretty roses. Did you see they have David Austen roses (shrubs) at Whole Foods? I couldn't believe it.

Max is looking fuzzy wuzzy. He's filling in nicely.

Warmest wishes from your most recent follower.

Such a naughty boy, but isn't he fun? My Scooter is a devil with tulips, but when you're that cute, no one gets cross with you (much)!

FANTASTIC design for the mantle arrangement. I am with Jane, can you send us a close up picture of it?

Wow, wow, wow! You had me trying to crawl into my screen trying to get to that mantle. Just gorgeous.
