gilded flowers

I gilded these yellow pincushions with a light dusting of gold paint, perfect for their appearance at the Tribeza Wedding Day show, on Gilda Grace's table. Some of my favorite things made it into this arrangement, and I just couldn't stop taking pictures of it... heavenly scented gardenias, green ruffled ranunculus, fuzzy kalanchoe, a snippet of my rare vining begonia plant, and of course some wasp nests, one of which also got goldilocks'd.

This is really beautiful. I love the cool greens with the warm ivory and gold. I would be proud and take lots of pictures too!

OMG Brooke! That is stunning. How did you get a wasp's nest? I love that shot of it far away on the table. Lovely color combo. xo

The textures are simply divine. I am a sucker for flowers/ foliage I have never seen before and I must say I have never seen a kalanchoe like that it is simply stunning. There are just so many little wonders in this bouquet like the green renuncs and maidenhair fern. So gorgeous.
