FARMER'S MARKET FLOWERS

"Bouquet Friday" is a little early this week y'all....I wanted to share my "Farmer's Market" flower finds with you...one of my favorite things to do on Saturday mornings during the summer months is go to the Farmer's Market...I love it and it's always fun chatting with the vendors and people watching...of course, I'm always there buying up all the pretty flowers and when I was there a couple of weeks ago, OMG...all of my favorite summer blooms were waiting for me!!.....check out all the lovelies below...and before I go any further, a huge shout out to my friend and she's an AMAZING photographer...the oh-so-beautiful and talented Tori of Marvelous Things Photography captured all of the beautiful images....Tori ROCKS and all of the beautiful flowers are from Amy's Garden (a vendor at the market)...Amy is AMAZING!!




I purchased a bouquet of the most vibrant and oh-so-pretty zinnias (an assortment of the most vibrant colors ranging from pinks, to burgundy, to chartreuse), a bouquet of lisianthus (solid white and white with purple tips), for texture I added a bouquet of coxcomb (the colors were OMG gorgeous…red, burgundy, pink, yellow, chartreuse) , a bouquet of mimosa (needed this golden yellow flower for a pop of color) and one of my favorite flowers of all time to use as a filler, snow on the mountain. I really can’t explain to you how much I love this flower! Each bunch cost $10.00. Total cost $50.00.

Got all the flowers home and conditioned them and put them in water and the next day I made the following:

A MOTHER OF THE BRIDE/GROOM POSY



I wrapped each bouquet with fabric swatches that I had saved from a few years ago and I ripped the material instead of cutting it to give it a “vintage” feel. The bouquets would be so perfect for a backyard wedding...so sweet!

A CORSAGE FOR THE GRANDMOTHER




And I had to share the beautiful coxcomb from the Farmer's Market....check out those vibrant colors...coxcomb are great flowers to use for texture in your bouquets!




Thinking of using flowers from the Farmer’s Market for your wedding day?

Here are a few things to consider:

1. Find out what flower vendors will be at the market and what types of flowers they will be selling.
2. Depending on the travel distance, you may need to bring a couple of buckets of water to place the flowers in for the drive home.
3. Remember to get to the market early. I’ve noticed that the flowers seem to sell out fast.
4. Be willing to have a change of heart if there are specific flowers that you want for your wedding; the market may not carry what you initially wanted.
5. If you can, contact the flower vendor ahead of time and ask if you can purchase flowers directly from them at their farm; this way, you can get the flowers for your wedding ahead of time.
6. Don’t try to DIY your wedding flowers yourself. The ideal person/people would be someone who is not attending your wedding!


Special thanks to Jen at Green Wedding Shoes for having us over this week...xoxo
