Happy Thursday, My Lovelies! I hope you're having a fantastic week so far. Recently I bought a delightful book entitled Meaningful Bouquets by Leigh Okies & Lisa McGuinness. Leigh and Lisa put together twenty-five beautiful floral arrangements based on the Victorian meaning of flowers. Annabelle Breakey's photography is eye candy: I've spent several hours enjoying the unique and beautiful arrangements and vignettes in this book.
Okay so my photography is nowhere near as wonderful as Annabelle's, and my arrangement is only so-so, BUT Meaningful Bouquets is my new favorite floral design book (and y'all know that I have many of them). Go out and find a copy ASAP. It is the perfect resource for planning a wedding, dinner party, or if you simply want the bouquets you give to your family and friends to be more meaningful and lovely.
