Nothing says Welcome Spring like Poppies!

Here in Cali, I know spring is here when I start seeing the beautiful California poppies everywhere. Fun fact- did you know the California Poppy is the state flower? Anyways, when I saw these bright, cheery tablescapes with poppies I thought they were perfect for the first day of spring. The tablescapes were designed by Amanda Auer of In The Now Weddings and photographed by Jordana of Hazelnut Photography. Have a beautiful weekend – unfortunately looks like it’s going to rain here, but hubby is happy so we have an excuse to watch the games!

*Update – Thanks to Mel who has informed me these are Icelandic Poppies in this tablescape – not California Poppies.

  1. LOVE these! What a great idea!

  2. Poppies are my absolute favorite flower in the whole world. These are actually Icelandic poppies. California poppies are a little bit different, usually orange-ish and they are shaped a bit differently.

    Anyway, this is incredibly beautiful, I’ve been thinking of how to work poppies into my wedding and I love this!

  3. Thanks for that information Mel! Still have so much to learn about all the flowers out there!

  4. Gorgeous! At first I was shocked to read that they were poppies, then I looked at them and realized they weren't "California" poppies. It's actually illegal to pick, destroy or dig them up. Gotta protect our state flower!!
