The anemone, or windflower, comes in lots of colors and varieties. It’s available in red, pink, purple, blue, white, and yellow and can look more like a daisy, have lots of petals, or look more like a poppy(as seen above). Vase life is not that long, ~ 5 days, but it can be extended if you keep them out of direct sunlight, re-cut the stems (cut underwater – water temp should be lukewarm), and use floral food.
Don’t you love the black centers?
Katie wanted to use as many local flowers as possible. Due to a cold spring lilacs were the only flower really blooming. So we picked buckets and buckets of lilacs! We filled in with stock, lisianthus, larkspur, and leptospermum – focusing on purples and pinks.
Bridesmaids bouquets. (Katie’s bridesmaids were in teal).
Groom – lisianthus and larkspur.
Congrats Caleb and Katie Bouma!
I’m throwing a baby shower for a friend and I wanted cupcake toppers that said “it’s a boy.” I couldn’t find any locally so I made these up. I printed 2 pages at FedEx Office for less than $1.50! Use 8.5×11 white glossy cardstock. I used a 1.5in hole punch to punch them out.
I’ll get the template uploaded soon!
