Andromeda Day 2

More of my new favorite shrub today!

Standing alone we have one of my favorite uses of andromeda to date.  This lovely photo was shot by The Nichols, and the arrangement was done by Austin’s The Noveau Romantics (great company name too!) I first saw it on Style Me Pretty.   This is just so fresh and clean – I love it with those citrus colors and the simple white container

Sigh…love all three of these.  All modern, but very natural.  On top it’s another from Portland’s Ink and Peat (it’s actually one of the first images you’ll see on their site, as it should be!), in just beginning to bloom bud form.  And the bottom two are both from Santa Monica’s La Partie:

Aren’t these all so pretty? I love it with little touches of spring pastel yellow! On top left, a really pretty bouquet from Poppies & Posies in NYC.   To its right, a bouquet from Natural Beauties in Chicago.  More dusty! And on the bottom, blink and you might miss it, but there’s a really beautiful single sprig of Andromeda in the bottom corner of that bouquet.  It makes the prettiest little accent like that! That one is from the Monkey Flower Group in Napa, CA.  You have to check out their site if you haven’t been, they make the coolest wearable botanical art!

Speaking of the Monkey Flower Group and wearable botanical art, they did the corsage on the bottom.  Talk about a classy, updated take on the corsage! Andromeda is very wearable, I love it against the crisp navy suit.  This bout is from Flower Wild in Santa Barbara, who I may have mentioned on this blog just a couple of times in the past ; )

Andromeda also looks very very cool with fruits, vegetables and nuts of all sorts! This top photo along with the bottom right is by Ariella Chezar, a celebrity florist if there is such a thing.  I saw the photos on Snippet & Ink.   Just so stylish.  Bottom left is also by NYC’s Poppies & Posies.  I LOVE the lemons and verbinum berries in that one!

Finally two very traditional mostly mono-botanical bouquets with a glorious collar of andromeda! The top pic was from Fashion Bride, and on bottom, from A Fresh Bouquet, a blog about seasonal, local and sustainable flowers.
