decoration DIY

A wedding in a barn

I know, there was a lot of food shown on this blog, and please don’t worry, there will be more soon…  But this month of June was under the sign of the family wedding and so there is another flower/decoration post .-)!

Believe it or not, it was pouring down, when we woke up on Saturday morning, not just drizzling, no really hard rain. We packed our little bus again with all the flowers and drove right next to the beautiful mountains and the little barn, where the wedding was going to take place. Well you could hardly see the mountains and it was freezing cold.


But everyone was in a good mood, and to be honest, standing in a sea of most beautiful flowers, how could someone not be happy? I really felt like a star florist since I had 3 perfect co-workers, who just cleaned and cut the flowers, so that they were ready to be arranged in the vases. What a nice way to work: surrounded by family, friends and of course with the excitement of the upcoming party!

Wedding1We made bouquets with peonies, raspberry leaves, snapdragons, alchemillas (lady’s mantle) and blackberries for the centers, and then a lot of small and filigrane vases for just all over the place.

What a beautiful wedding, Congratulations again to the bride and groom, and a huge thank you to all my perfect co-workers, one even came from Hawaii ;-).
