It's the holiday season and I'm sure a lot of you are hosting lots of dinner parties at your home....let's have fun setting the dinner tables with one of my favorite designs (and a trip down "Memory Lane"). The inspiration behind the shoot is the beautiful basil palette tablecloth from Anthropologie....the moment I saw it I knew I wanted to design a floral shoot with a "Tuscan Style" flavor!  Using weathered urns as our containers, we mixed the most gorgeous florals with rosemary, mint, lavender and geranium leaves and I so wish you could have been here, not only to join in on all the fun we had, but to smell the beautiful fragrance from all the herbs!  Capturing all the beautiful images, the incredibly talented and incredibly sweet, Katie Stoops.  Katie ROCKS y'all!!!....... Enjoy...xoxo

Hi guys, today's featured wedding took place right here in Richmond, VA and JM Flora Design, aka..."me"....had the pleasure of providing all the wedding flowers for Laura & Dan....Laura was so much fun to work with it...we had a ball chatting on the phone and I finally got to meet the beautiful bride on her wedding day...(it seems to be the norm for me...my brides are "long distance", so I get to meet them on their wedding day)....Laura & Dan are the cutest couple...their wedding reception took place at the VMFA .......Laura shared with me that she wanted her wedding to be not only about her & Dan, but also about her family and friends....she wanted her bridesmaids to wear the dresses they wanted to wear and she expressed to me that she wanted everyone to be comfortable and enjoy the day....capturing their wedding story, the oh-so-fab and talented, Katie of Katie Stoops Photography...Katie's work is always AMAZING...and always "picture perfect"....Enjoy!!

Happy Monday Guys....hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Let's open the cafe with one of my favorite flowers...Peonies!  I love them!  I think peonies are one of the most romantic flowers and I adore their sweet fragrance....their "ruffle-like" blooms are so soft and feminine.....truly a top pick for wedding floral.....whether you want to carry a bouquet of them or a single stem, you don't have to do a lot of "arranging" to them, which makes them perfect for a DIY wedding or for your home.

A couple of weeks ago, the wonderful folks from FiftyFlowers, sent me the most beautiful Sarah Bernhardt Peonies....in case you didn't know, FiftyFlowers is a great resource for wholesale flowers for DIY weddings and events.

So, I created a little "Peony Love" (right in my own back yard) and my girl Katie of Katie Stoops Photography stopped by to capture all the details.  Thanks so much Katie.....Enjoy Y'all....xoxo

Happy Monday My Lovely Cafe Readers.....I hope you all had a beautiful weekend and as always, thank you for stopping by the cafe....well, today I'm introducing a new feature at the cafe and it totally revolves around beautiful florals!  The concept of the feature is "from grocery store to glam"....basically, I'll be designing florals for the home, weddings, parties, etc. using florals from the local grocery.  I always keep fresh flowers in my home and most of the time I purchase them from Whole Foods...I love Whole Foods and last week, I broke into my "happy dance" as I entered the store and I saw these pretty babies....OMG....GORGEOUS coral peonies at $2.00 per stem. 

How pretty these would be for a bride to carry as her bouquet and so perfect for centerpieces.....I can totally see these lovelies in mint julep cups lining the reception tables....so elegant!  I had the pleasure of having my friend and AMAZING photographer, Katie of Katie Stoops Photography  stop by and capture these lovelies on film.  For the shoot, I used a turquoise mercury vase as the vessel and we used cherries as an accent...I love the mix of these color combinations and I have made a promise to myself to do a style shoot with these key ingredients....have a lovely day everyone and remember to pick up fresh florals for your home or office the next time you are at the local market!!
