This post is completely unrelated to wedding flowers. Instead its a bit of a brag about one of my dearest friends and her new furniture and homewares label; Auburn & Green.
Brieanna has impeccable taste and a fantastic eye for detail which is what makes this brand so great. You can trust that each piece in her collection is not only one of a kind but carefully searched for and hand picked by Brie. She sources beautifully made textiles and works with experienced craftsman to refurbish and restore each unique piece.
Along with that she has cool and quirky homewares to compliment her pieces. The only problem is choosing a favourite. I’m thinking my next purchase may have to be the Tropical Paradise Cushion.
This Brisbane wedding is such a cute one. You can tell from the images by Lost In Wishful Thinking that they just had the best day and you could tell from meeting Danielle that she was so excited to marry Frank.
Danielle came to me with a brief for her bridal bouquet of ‘pretty, garden flowers that would suit the soft pink/purple bridesmaids dresses’. I immediately thought of beautiful lavender lace roses. They were combined with snapdragons, lisianthus, chrysanthemums, hypericum, andromeda and some dusty miller. She trusted me to do something that would suit her wedding and her personality and I was so happy with the result and so excited when I saw the pictures to see they just suited Danielle so well. And even better, she really loved them. Plus you cant go wrong with a Blossom & Twine flower crown, right?
The gorgeous sofa in the pictures is from the lovely Moments in Vintage. Seriously with all of that plus the brides blonde curls you really have yourself a winner. And you’ll even see Danielle changes into her Mum’s wedding dress towards the end. Ahh so lovely!
Today I’m happy to show you some images from a reception last year at Botanical Cafe at Mt Coot-tha.
When Mellita came to me and suggested moss on her wedding tables my heart did a little jump. It was messy and damp and so much fun! We dragged bag after bag of moss into the cafe and poked all sorts of goodies into it. Books and old nic-nacs that she had collected sat amongst the greenery. I wish I could have been there to see the guest’s faces as they found their table and discovered each treasure hidden in the foliage!
The staff at Botanical Cafe were so helpful and let me put dirt and foliage all over the place!
The photos are fabulous because they were taken by Brisbane wedding photographer Deb Boots from Boots Photography. Just love when a bride tells me Deb will be photographing my wedding flowers!
