I love Autumn's cooler temps and changing colors. Reds, oranges, greens, well, they are my favorite colors all year round, but they seem to shine most in Autumn. This bouquet and boutonniere represent the colors and textures I most associate with my favorite season of the year. I love the mix of traditional butterscotch roses, bright red anemones and ranunculas, brown cymbidium orchids, orange poppies and fancy gerbera daisies... such an eclectic mix with so much character. I wish I could have this bouquet sitting on my coffee table all season long.
When I had a few extra flowers after a recent shoot that I styled, I decided to make a small arrangement for my dining room table in an old Irish oatmeal tin. The tin would have rusted with water inside, so I dropped a clear water glass into the tin first, filled it with water, and then created the bouquet in my hand before placing it inside the doubled container. I love the bright, punchy colors and the mix of the refined, traditional roses with the textural berries, ruffled ranunculus, sexy anemones and cheerful poppies!
