Colorful Styled Shoot


Earlier this year I said I wasn’t going to do any styled shoots because I didn’t want to spend the money or invest the time into them. Fast forward 6 months to the present day, and I’ve completed two with two more on the docket. Eating my words because they are SUCH an excellent way to push yourself to design in a different style and/or use ingredients you normally wouldn’t.

We wanted something wild and colorful this time around. I am totally having a proud plant-mom moment looking back on these photos. All of the greens and vines are from my home garden. Hopefully next year I’ll have some bulb flowers and other blooms to add to my orders. Until then, I’m just going to sit back and admire how well all of these colorful flowers came together for these photos and how they are accented by my baby greens!


Jasmine vine, gardenia branches, mondo grass blossoms, lady ferns, bupleurum, yellow stock, pink and white spray roses, purple lisianthus, white peonies, and hot pink tulips.

"Into the Woods" Styled Shoot


Last month the Honeycomb team trudged into Hitchcock Woods in Aiken, SC for an afternoon of styling with Dailey Alexandra Photography and Baked by Lex. We ran around in the mud (aka horse poop) for about 3 hours while Dailey brought my floral designs to life with her gorgeous photography. Shoutout to Alexis for running around barefoot in that as our model, and to all the equestrians we confused with our 'pop up wedding' in the middle of their trails.

This day was one for the books. Whose idea was it to fashion a real-wood arch, sweetheart table and its fixings, bouquets and arrangements and lug all the supplies about a mile into the woods? Certainly not I........... (sarcasm goes here). I am oh-so-thankful my husband knocked some sense into me and talked me out of carrying our 6-seater pine dining table back there! Although that might have been selfishly motivated on his part.... hmm. Moving on.

I N G R E D I E N T S:
Sahara & spray roses, curly willow, bupleurum, brunia, scabiosa pods, dried yarrow, ruscus, wax flower, and alllll the eucalyptus you can think of (silver dollar, willow, gunny, & seeded eucs)
