The flowers were textural, feminine, seasonal, and delicate; a perfect pairing to an exquisite brunch spread created by the Ritz Carlton Pentagon City chefs. The best botanicals of early summer were used throughout the decor, including garden roses, columbine, ranunculus, sweet peas, astilbe, peonies, and spring greens and vines.
My podcast interview with Team Flower is live - tune in to our discussion about overcoming limitations in design and business by trying new ventures, disabling creative blocks, and maintaining a fresh outlook. Thanks so much to Kelly and Janine for chatting with me - it's an honor to be featured on one of my favorite podcasts.
Be sure to peruse all of Team Flower's other wonderful podcast episodes for more behind the scenes insight into the business of floral design.

It was a hot and sultry day in the city for this June wedding at DC's Navy Yard. A cooling color palette including muted hues of plum, lavender and mauve complimented the crisp white backdrop of historic Tingey House.
The flowers included lush ivory and blush garden roses, lilac, scabiosa, ninebark, astrantia, sweet peas, lavender and autumn olive foliage. Guests entered the tented reception through a 10 foot wide archway of abundant greenery and blooms, and found fresh sprigs of lavender herbs at their seats.
