It’s been a few months but our friend, and Select vendor, Sarah Winward from Honey of a Thousand Flowers  and photographer Kate Osborne took a moment in the midst of wedding season to share some gorgeous late summer floral inspiration. I absolutely love these colors – I always appreciate when pink gets paired with something unexpected, like these moody, dark hues. Reminds me a little of this inspiration board from a few years ago…

From Sarah: “Middle to late summer is a time when so many fruits are available both on the stem and off. I like my flowers to really feel like the season they are in! For this berry-toned look, we incorporated blackberries, plums, and blueberries with the flowers. We let the fruit and candles spill between the flowers to create a whole tablescape that runs down the length of the table. To make the bright pinks and burgundy of the flowers feel a bit moodier I stuck with mostly dark foliage.”

Says Sarah: “Spring is a a great time for any color palette, but I think it is also the best time to go for a clean look with whites, greens, and earthy neutral tones.”

“I love spring blooms, and often times I think they are best just by themselves! Blooming branches are beautiful when isolated in their own vase, or laid down a table.”

Sarah used the following in her arrangements: Dogwood, Pear Blossom, Fern, Hellebore, Iceland Poppy, Lilac, Sweet Peas, Fringed Tulip.

Yesterday we got a look at some purple and blue Spring flowers from Sarah Winward of Honey of a Thousand Flowers, one of our talented Select vendors. Today, she shows us another direction Spring brides can go… I confess, I’m such a sucker for pretty pink flowers, especially in soft shades of blush. Photos by Kate Osborne.

“Spring blooms are intricately shaped and to me, very feminine,” says Sarah. “A soft color palette is easy to dream up with the spring flowers.”

Sarah used the following pretties in this bouquet and cloche-covered arrangement: Fritillaria, Hellebore, Dusty Miller, Ranunculus, Sweet Pea, Amnesia Rose.

This week we have not one, but two, beautiful March flower features for you from Sarah Winward of Honey of a Thousand Flowers (a Snippet & Ink Select vendor!). If you’re a lover of blues and purples, then this post is for you… Sweet photos by Kate Osborne.

From Sarah: Purple and and especially blue tones in flowers are hard to come by. Most of the flowers that are in these tones are very seasonal. If you want these colors in the flowers for your wedding, choose an early spring date. I love the small blooms of flowers that grow in the early spring, they are each so delicate.

In this bouquet and boutonnieres you’ll find: Hellebore, Hyacinth, Sweet Pea, Ranunculus, Fritillaria, Muscari, Scabiosa, Lilac, and Delphinium.
