Hello Spring

One of my favorite things about Spring…peonies. Who doesn't love them?!

The peony is named after Paeon (also spelled Paean), a student of Asclepius, the Greek God of medicine and healing. Asclepius became jealous of his pupil; Zeus saved Paeon from the wrath of Asclepius by turning him into the peony flower.

The family name "Paeoniaceae" was first used by Friedrich K.L. Rudolphi in 1830. Lots of history here but what's even better is the way these beauties LOOK.

I'm looking forward to using lots of them this year!

Photo Booth Fun

36d09896a22056765fa2b61b3c57e654Everyone just LOVES a photo booth, right?

When you decide to have one at your wedding, you probably want to avoid it looking like all of the rest.

I think this set up is absolutely beautiful and gives everyone a chance (including the bride) to have a nice, classy, take home from the day.

The best part about it, is that this can be a wonderful backdrop for the bride and groom and also for the wedding party pics. Double duty!

Thanks to ginnybranch.squarespace.com I've got some sweet ideas dancing in my head for the next blissful day that I create.
