In March I had the pleasure of designing the flowers for the wedding of Marita Walton and Reed Ellis at Galloway UMC in Jackson, MS.
A couple of weeks ago I gathered with a wonderful group of women in Jackson, MS at the Dickies Building for a Fall Floral Workshop. It was a delight to see the arrangements come to life, and each of the ladies left with their very own masterpiece!
Here in the deep south we love our mothers. And when it's time to plan a wedding it's customary for the mother-of-the bride to be heavily involved. From their help in choosing dresses and color palettes, to making decisions about budgets and vendors, to drying our eyes when things get stressful - we are so thankful for our mothers!
Flowers and art go together like....beans and cornbread. And if you don't already have that song stuck in your head, by all means have a listen here. It'll brighten your day and put a pep in your step!
But honestly, I can hardly think of a better pairing than flowers and art - it was just meant to be. My husband, Jerrod, is a professional artist, I am a floral designer, and truth be told, we're kinda like beans and cornbread, too.
