VOTE VOTE VOTE

So, the last voting session was so fun, here on the blog and on facebook, I thought I would see if I could get you guys to participate again!!

This time it's over flowers. Let me tell you, deciding how to decorate is tough. Because I really want to decorate like David Stark, the event planner genius. But I lack thousands and thousands of dollars and time. My decorating will probably be sparse, and that's hard, my head is filled with so many great ideas and choosing which one is actually possible is tough.

But enough about that, this is about bouquets...VOTE VOTE VOTE!!!

#1 Oh anemones, how I love thee. My friend Venessa turned me onto these and I will be forever grateful.
#2 Lavender. My favorite plant in my garden. I would have this hands down if I could get it fresh like in the first picture, which is impossible in April. So, dried then.



#3 Lavender with wheat. I think this is so gorgeous, but possibly a little cliche, considering I'm marrying a farmer.
#4 White tulips, great for April
#5 Ranunculus, speaks for itself

#6 Succulents. I came across these yesterday and am in LOVE with them. I think they are so beautiful and unique. Alberta isn't known for it's desert landscape, but does it matter?



#7 Parrot Tulips. Pretty...
#8 All green. Kind of fun, and my color!
#9 White Gerber daisies always look good.

#10 Lily of the Valley. I would do this too, but the florist basically said no, it's too fragile. But how do these people do it???

Wow- all of the flowers are beautiful! i do love gerber daisies though. and you have opened my eyes to some amazing flowers! Wow. White gerber daisies are my choice.

I have been loving all the succulents lately! Renae turned me onto those and now I can't get over how much I love them. And I LOVE LOVE the Ranunculus. Touch choice!!

I left my comment on facebook...but i guess i'll repeat. I like the anemones, sucullents or lily of the valley. Like I said--I love ranunculus but they really fragile and have very curvy stems. The stems look cool in a vase but it could be an issue if you wanted them in a bouquet. ...

....then again, I bet the local craft store has some real nice fake flowers--if you're lucky I bet you could find some with glitter! Yes. Yeah--I am changing my vote to this. Has 'classy' written ALLLLL over it.

Patti, I'm all about 4, 6, 9, and 10. I just saw the Lilies of the Valley on another blog and fell in love with how dainty they are - they look like you could have picked them from an obliging field (mean to be said in an english accent - a little Jane Austen reference). Good luck with the pick, whatever you choose will be beautiful.

I have to go with Venessa on the anemones.

I love ALL of these! I would probably choose parrot tulips, anemones, and ranunculus. Too much, though? How to choose? I always dreamed of Lily of the Valley for mine but I too was thwarted in my attempt.

Ok in this order...
Anemones then the lavender...(Cant you imagine the smell?! like summer in your hand!) Then the Ranunculus. You could probably mix Anemones and Ranunculus. (fun to say all in one word Anemonculus bouquet) And then of course the succulents. But be prepared to be copied in a few years time. I am for Arizona after all.

Anemones or the gerbers. But what's this April you speak of? I'm so confused.
