I simply love summer’s floral bounty. Every time I’m in the car, I want to pull over on the side of the road and just start picking (but usually refrain since Zoe’s in the car and it’d be unsafe). I’ve been trying to keep fresh flowers in the house all summer long, and I really want to take a workshop, or at least read some books on floral arranging, so that I know more about the art and the flowers that
are available locally (any recs?).
Our flower beds aren’t producing very much yet, so I’ve been driving over to Fields of Flowers, just on the other side of Purcellville, for my weekly flower fix. (If you’re in Northern VA, I really recommend taking a day to visit Fields of Flowers). Then I pretend to be Sweet Root Village and make (or try, in my case) them look pretty in a vase or pitcher or whatever.
A few days ago, my interns (to be introduced next week!!!) and I went to Fields of Flowers for a little flower picking adventure. Anna snapped these pretty photos, and documented one of my first arranging attempts. It was so satisfying to know that I had chosen each type of flower or green, and then see how they all came together for the final look! If only I knew the names of each plant….(please feel free to shout out names of any you recognize!)
Since I usually dream of ranunculus, peonies, and Juliet roses, it was fun to play around with a more wild, freshly picked look. I really love my first attempt at arranging freshly picked blooms, and cannot wait to learn more!!
This weekend, I’m going on a little STAYCATION with Joy! So excited to explore Georgetown with this dear friend and have some much-needed girlfriend bonding/relaxing/brainstorming time. Our itinerary is prettttty full, but if you have any MUSTS for Georgetown, please shout them out. We’ll be posting lots about our adventures, so follow along on instagram (#WestinWeekend).
