Floral Stylings: Mini-Carnations

A few years ago, if you asked me whether I liked flowers, my answer would have been noncommittal at best.  My relatively newfound (going on three years) love of flowers stemmed from planning my wedding – it was only then that I realized how much I love different types of flowers and thinking about how to arrange them.  So every now and then I like to purchase some flowers for myself and have some fun at home arranging and then photographing them.  I’ve got a stockpile of these photos (including ones from our Philly days), so you can expect to see them popping up on the blog in future posts!

The white and green mini-carnations featured here were so fresh and lovely that I couldn’t resist buying them on a recent grocery store trip.  As a plus, these flowers last for a relatively long time!

I’ve included one “before” picture, followed by some favorite “after” images.  I also snapped a few pictures with some pottery that we purchased for a song at a phenomenal student pottery sale run by The Clay Studio in Philadelphia.  If I remember correctly the sale was usually around Mother’s Day Weekend.  Anyone in Philly should check it out!
