Vintage Queen

This collection of flowers was selected as if you were looking for the freshest ingredients to cook that night for dinner. My client gave me a very clear vision of her antiquey, loose, organic, charming style. The venue is this gorgeous, country setting just outside of NYC, which lends to the relaxed feel. My favorite part of this collection is the set of gorgeous vintage milk bottles set in the wooden frame. I found these special props at the recent Brimfield antique show where I bought THREE set's of these. It would be amazing to do a long table to put all three set's with smaller alternating sizes in between. The milk bottles have tall green Vibrunum in the back, Poppy seeds in the middle and antique blue Hydrangea up front.
The flowers used in the smaller center piece contain white Peony, Poppy seeds, Artichokes, Queen Ann Lace, Hydrangea, Pink Astilbe, and greens.
