Paulie Antiques Floral Designs Lately

My friend from college commissioned me to design this arrangement for his mother for Mother's Day. He wanted it to be smaller, though... so it's a bit more manageable than some of my other arrangements! Haha. Of course there is the signature protea in the center, whenever possible! Have a great weekend!

Paulie Antiques Mother's Day design

 My friend commissioned me to make an arrangement for her lovely mother for Mother's Day and I got so excited! When she requested baby's breath I knew it was going to be a tad challenging with my "style" but I knew I could pull it off in a colorful and eclectic fashion. I can't wait to see the peach Gladiolas bloom because they are so fresh in these photos that you can barely tell they're going to bloom! It was a lot of fun making this arrangement! XO

Outfit: She's got the Right

Lilacs are growing absolutely EVERYWHERE in Chicago right now and I can't stop snipping away at them and taking them home to put in water and give to neighbors and friends. They fill my studio with such a fresh wonderful scent that instantly enlightens my mood. I spotted these particular lilacs on a bush earlier this week and happened to have my clippers on me today because I was walking home from work (designing floral centerpieces).  It's convenient to already have your tools with you.. haha! These white and purple lilacs are so lust-worthy! I actually haven't seen these before this year! XO. Here is another post of me wearing this same dress!
