I am BEYOND EXCITED about today's featured guest...the beautiful and talented, Kate Holt of Flowerwild is here today and she is sharing her GORGEOUS bouquets with us.  I simply adore Kate....she is an AMAZING designer....her floral designs are truly works of art and Kate is a total sweetheart!  This is Kate's first visit at the cafe, and I'm happy to say that it's not her last!!  Now let's check out the beautiful stylings of Flowerwild....Enjoy!!!!


"First off...a big thanks to Janie for inviting me to create a some inspired floral segments for her lovely wedding blog.  I am a fan, as they say.   This first week I wanted to focus on texture.  So many of my brides this season have mentioned that my use of texture was part of what drew them to Flowerwild.  Which seemed kind of strange to me, as I don't consciously decide to bring in texture.  It's more of part of my natural approach to design. 

Start with the backdrop or base coat then begin to lay in the focus flowers.  Think of a lush garden in the French country-side.  A boarder of geranium and bleeding hearts backed by staggered hedges of wild garden roses, peony bushes, and a wall of jasmine and honeysuckle.  Hmmmmmmmm ....I want to go there don't you?
 

My first bouquet is a fresh spring mix that began with a bed of these amazingly delicate allium, lacy tendrils of geranium, mini gladiolas, viburnum, and a few bronze toned succulent blooms.

Floating on top are the white peonies, and sweet little narcissus...all in a cuff of these begonia leaves which are a true wonder of nature.  I just love their silvery tone and dark edges embracing the pure white blooms. Vintage ribbon and bronze leaf pin add a luxurious touch."
