Peonies and Roses ~

Beautiful, Fragrant White and Pink Peonies always take me back to Indiana, 
where they are the State Flower.  
This Texas Bridal Bouquet was brimming with Peonies. 
The White Roses had just a blush of pink.  
They filled my studio with fragrance as I enjoyed preserving every petal! 

The lace piece in the corner had been wrapped around the stems of the bouquet 
and added a nice touch to the art!

Heart-Shaped Beveled Glass Ornaments made from left-over petals!

Graduation Lei of Rose Buds and Orchids!

This Graduation Party Theme for this University of Texas Grad was "Hawaiian" 
and she was honored with a gift of a beautiful Lei to celebrate!  
I preserved the Lei and arranged the flowers around her graduation photo's.

Classic Red Rose Bridal Bouquet...with Grass!

This Bride from Ohio, carried a Classic Red Rose Bouquet, 
embellished with Crab Grass, to honor her father, 
who is in the lawn care business!

I love the endlessly creative ways that brides express their love 
through the bouquet they carry on their wedding day!

She also chose to remember her wedding day
with a Teardrop Beveled Glass Ornament!
