Our stylish bride Elyse Carried this unique feminine bouquet at the Matthaei Botanical Gardens Saturday. After delivering Justin and I took some time out to relax in the atrium and wander the grounds. Everything is in bloom and I'm kicking myself for not getting photos to share here but if you can make a trip out there this fall DO IT!! The outdoor gardens are free of charge including the most amazing (and biggest) children's garden that has 10 or so activities available all the time.
Bouquet is composed of the officially in season DAHLIA! Just look at it and drool surrounded by white scabiosa, craspedia (or billy balls) scabiosa pods, yellow and pink ranunculus, the infamous dusty miller foliage and seeds from seeded eucalyptus.
And this is a sneak peek at our new living room with blue tufted sofa a $250 craigslist find and the above homemade pallet coffee table with industrial casters that could support the weight of an elephant! Under that drum roll..........Shag Carpet from Ikea Yippee!
Special thanks to Daddy for building the coffee table it will be my favorite family heirloom and the grand kids can fight over it when I'm gone (or just bury me under it). xo
