Compote Design

Hello everyone!!

 

I hope you enjoyed a peaceful holiday weekend and managed to find a little time to relax. Believe it or not, I spent countless hours designing just for me which was absolutely wonderful. It was great to get back to the core of what I love, designing flowers!

 

The past two years I have been fortunate enough to travel to New York City to meet up with an incredible group of floral designers affectionally known as the Chapel Designers. The love and friendship that we share  is invaluable. We challenge each other to be better, we encourage and offer a shoulder when needed. The power of social media is incredibly powerful and I cannot thank Holly Chapple enough for bringing this group together.

 

One of the hottest trends right now is the compote design and definitely a Chapel favorite. A few weeks ago our dear friend Isha Foss encouraged all of us to create our very own compote design that we could share on all our blogs the same day. I have to tell you the end result is absolutely beautiful. Ironically enough Martha Stewart weddings featured a “Crazy for Compotes” story just a few days ago which can only mean this group is in good company!

 

My compote design featured a combination of lush locally grown peony, whimsical sweet peas and ranunculus, succulence, veronica, spray roses, Golden Treasure orchids and a few little goodies I managed to scrounge up around our property.

 

 

I have to personally thank my dear husband for dragging our antique table out in the middle of the woods in an effort to capture that perfect shot. He is such a trouper and the images are gorgeous!!!

 

 

A little closer look at my favorite orchid, the Golden Treasure…stunning!

 

This is definitely one of my favorite shots of the day.

 

Listed below are the links to my friends blog posts. I encourage you to check out the other designers. You will not be disappointed. Enjoy and I cannot wait to see what our next challenge will be. Isha, thank you again for coming up with such a fun project!!

 

ENJOY all the beautiful eye candy and have a wonderful week.  xx
