Early Spring Inspiration

I know I have said this before, but a walk in spring is so full of inspiration for me. Last week I gathered some branches and foliage from trees and bushes around my neighborhood and mixed them with some flowers from the flower mart and the results were just lovely. It is always amazing how different floral varieties can be paired with different leaves and foliage for unique results. Quince is one of my favorites this time of year, and much like everything else in California, it is in bloom early. For this arrangement I picked some geranium and jasmine from my garden, and arranged them with anemone, lisianthus, rose, ranunculus and parrot tulip. Wouldn't this make a beautiful spring wedding centerpiece?

Here I used some blooms from a bush in my neighborhood with sweet little white flowers. I also found these pretty double colored leaves, (the back side of these leaves are a metallic gold shade, as if they were sprayed with fairy dust). I mixed these leaves with hyacinth, tulip, lilac, freesia, and dates. This piece would make a prefect statement piece at a wedding.

And finally, this simple union of quince, spray rose, and loropetalum (fringe flower) foliage makes for an exquisite arrangement for any occasion.
