mmmm, pink wedding cake

A few more images of the beautiful pinks... the whole room looked so glowy once the vintage milk glass candles were lit. The inside of the cake was a delicate, naturally tinted pink with raspberry filling and cream cheese frosting, made by a talented friend.

in love with pink and brown, again

A sweet bouquet for a dear friend Sophie, which includes all divine pink flowers... Phoebe and Baronesse garden roses, ranunculus, sweetpeas, hydrangea, mini cym orchids, Supernova and pink Majolika spray roses. Smells heavenly.

And her centerpieces, with Badam pods, astrantia, Sophie and Shocking Versillia roses, hydrangea, Majolika sprays and carnations.

Bout and corsages of Supernova's with smilax curls.

the beauty of uncommon objects

I've been taking in some potted orchids and foliage plants to sell at Uncommon Objects, which I think compliment the antiques beautifully. I love scouring the store for items to fill out the vignettes. Yes, that's a coffee table/planter filled with vining begonia and alocasia with a tillandsia sitting on the back side.

The fresh arrangement this week included pink king protea, grass seed heads, and christmas bush as well as coral vine (or Queen's Wreath) cut from my yard.

tillandsias at sabia

Some fun new tillandsias found their way into Sabia last week, replacing the orchid plants. Just right for summer.
