This June, floral goddess Ariella Chezar is giving a 3-day workshop in Sonoma, covering everything from flowers for the table to bridal bouquets to creating an overall look for an event. I’ve been looking forward to this for months, and wouldn’t miss it for the world – I hope to see you there!

If you need a little extra dose of spring, we’ve got just the thing for you: a beautiful couple (who both happen to be models) in an orchard full of blooming trees. Oh, and did I mention the groom’s fabulously preppy attire?

See lots more from this shoot over on David Newkirk’s blog!

I recently went out and purchased some painting supplies (gouache and paper and cheapo brushes, nothing fancy), and am going to put them to use this weekend. Spring feels like the perfect time to pick up a hobby like painting, don’t you think? I haven’t painted since high school, so we’ll see how it goes, but mostly I’m looking for new ways to exercise creativity (simultaneously bringing a little more color into my life). What are you up to this weekend?

Happy Anniversary Will and Kate! One of my favorite royal wedding posts from last year.

Another nearly royal wedding: Jackie & JFK.
