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.”
