"do I dare? do I dare....?

We've been doing a fair amount of Bride's bouquets for weddings at Oleana whose restaurant is down the street from us.  Oleana has a gorgeous garden 'patio' where brides and grooms are married before they and their guests eat a fabulous luncheon.  Flowers are always minimal in number, but bouquets are always lush and gorgeous.

One such wedding is for tomorrow and I've been making and remaking a bouquet today for the Bride.

"Colorful" was the request and I certainly have that goin' on, but after I took photos today, I realized that while there is a lot of texture and color, it just doesn't have that 'thing' happening.


It's fairly easy to rely on beautiful flowers to be the standout of the bouquet.  I'm sure the Bride would love this.  But I'm hoping for 'exquisite' and right here on this post, I'm going to say that tomorrow morning I'm going to again rework this melange of beautiful fleurs and end with something I really love and something the Bride will adore.

Sandwiched between tomorrow's post and this image is a photo of Petals I took without looking through the view finder... it's always such a surprise when a blind photo works out!

I have been known to redo. Always to my delight.

If you're not happy, then by all means do it again.

You need to please the bride and yourself.

I was going to redo an early morning delivery when I got to work today but the customer had dropped by and was loading it in her car when I walked up.

I wanted to shout "stop, it's not done yet" but I said hello and watched her drive away.

regrets, I've had a few....

Ah, Jane. If only they knew how much we care.

Great photo of Petals! I'm eager to see how the arrangement changes.

I'm sure the bride will be very happy with her flowers, redone or not. The colours are divine! x

Can't wait to see the redo because I already think this is exquisite. Maybe you can work Petals into it somehow.

Love the photo of Petals. For me, it was like one of those optical things ... immediatly saw his eye, but then the black and white totally threw mw off. Neat!!
