We’re in a transitional time of year right now — still savoring the last few days of autumn, but looking forward to the winter wonderland brought on by the turning of the season! Today, McKenzie Powell shows us two separate floral arrangements, both perfect for this time of year.

 

Flowers include garden roses, spray roses, mums, scabiosa, clematis vine, lambs ear and antique hydrangea. Fall fruit, tree branches and mushroom accents lend an earthy touch!

 

 

We love the look of these next floral arrangements, which includes a variety of roses and jasmine vine.  Wouldn’t those trailing vines be so elegant for a December wedding?
