Happy Wednesday! It’s finally cooling off here in Texas, sort of. When I say cooling off I mean the days are only hitting 93-94 degrees instead of 103-104. So clearly it’s still hot and not anywhere close to boot weather, regardless my feelings that it should be as soon as the calendar hits September 1 each year. I digress.
Today is a piggy back post to our design challenge from last week!
We had enough floral left over from our surprise order we received, so I had fun working on this bouquet!
Since I am pretty much self-taught in floral design, I tend to think there’s nothing more I can teach myself. I fear that I can’t grow unless I figure out how to pay big bucks to attend a workshop where I can learn from veteran professionals who have been in the business for decades and know more mechanics than I could ever dream of.
The reality is is sometimes I just overthink it. I concentrate too hard to try and achieve a certain look instead of letting the piece I am working on happen organically to take shape.
For this bouquet I decided to push fear aside. There was no bride I needed to please who was paying me to create her wedding bouquet that would be captured in photography that would last a lifetime. This bouquet was just about fueling my creativity, and show myself what can happen if I don’t overthink how to construct a certain style all while introducing myself to new types of floral.
My favorite elements of this bouquet are the clematis and the double hellebores! They are so dreamy!
Until next time!
