If you follow me on twitter, you heard I was at the Little Flower School LA workshop this past week. It was such a fun night! Led by Sarah and Nicolette, they talked about different flowers and their design process – it was so inspiring! And here is my design. :) Thanks so much ladies!

A Save the Date from France! I love this cute Save the Date from Studio Artifice in France. The concept is about “Love Padlocks.” This is a custom in France where sweethearts affix a padlock to a fence or public fixture to symbolize their love. You lock a padlock and throw away the key. In Paris, love padlocks are usually attached to the “Pont des arts”.

  1. Yay for early Friday Favors!!! I do love that bride in her momma’s gown. That is a great idea to hold the parents’ wedding photo, too.
    That Rockwell Save the Date is precious! I love the Rockwell painting of the couple signing their marriage license. It’s called “Marriage License.”
    Gorgeous bouquet with the anemones and great extra others today, too!
