Seductive Succulents

A square sedum and succulent wreath is a unique and sustainable addition to any front door. To create this you need:

Wreath frame - round or square
Heavy gauge and decorative wire
Sphaghnum moss
15-20 4" pots of varying sedums/succulents

To make the wreath - soak the moss in water for a few hours and then pack it into the wreath frame. Secure the moss by wrapping the frame with wire. Plant the sedums into the wreath by tucking them into the moss and securing by rewrapping with the decorative wire.

The wreath should be watered once a week and trimmed periodically so that it keeps its shape.

A Glorious Saturday on Kiawah!

On Saturday, we set up for a wedding at the Sandcastle on Kiawah Island. It was a perfect day... 70 degrees and not a cloud in the sky.

On top of that - I loved the flowers we worked with - ranunculus, sweet peas, anemones and garden roses - and adored working with the bride, Laura Booras.

Sarah Bradley of Social Event Design coordinated the day and Juliet Elizabeth Photography was on-site to capture it all.

Here are a few of our photos.:

Rustic Elegance

Yesterday A New Leaf Studio delivered wedding flowers for Laurin Hampton's ceremony at St. Luke's Chapel at MUSC and reception at Hibernian Hall. The flowers were ivory and celadon accented by hints of burgundy. Rustic wooden boxes topped with lanterns and mercury glass vases were placed on 2/3 of the tables and lush centerpieces in mercury glass vases on the remaining 1/3 at the reception.

Below are a few shots we took on our way out before the festivities began. I can't wait to see the "real" shots by Heather Forsythe Photography.
