Casual Summer Bouquet | Flowers by KelleB

As summer is about to fade out into the luxurious fall I thought I would bring to you a bouquet from a Texas inspired photo shoot I did a few summers ago.  My lovely friend and dynamo photographer, Amy Rose King, did an amazing and inspired job with the photography and set up!

Texas Summer Bouquet by KelleB | Photography by Amy Rose KingMy motto in floral design, especially since I can never make up my mind what to NOT use, is,  “more is more!” In this whimsical bouquet I used mini oranges, lemon leaves, sedums, aloe vera, daisies, desert willow greens, dianthus greens and saladago.

Grip Detail: metal buckle, burlap & yellow polka dot ribbon accent | Flowers by KelleB | Photography by Amy Rose KingFor the grip, I had some fun and used a pale yellow satin ribbon for the base with an overlay of brown burlap.  Long ago, I had found this fantastic metal buckle on one of my many antiquing jaunts and thought it would add a unique element.  This fantastic buckle is attached with a fun and casual yellow polka dot ribbon!

And thanks again to my sweet and talented friend for always managing to make my work look way better than humanly possible!
