Editor's Note: Today I am wearing a J.Crew pencil skirt, a vintage blouse by Jacqueline de Ribes, and my favorite snake kitten heels from Banana Republic.
I had the pleasure of hearing Preston Bailey speak a couple of years ago at a Garden Club Luncheon. What an incredible talented man in ever fiber of his being. I admire florist so much because the have to create incredible setting in such a short period of time. The planning is similar to me planning a room or a house with a lot of thought and preparation of me planning. Where I get to execute over time they have to execute in a short period of time because they are dealing with real flowers. The setting that Preston Bailey creates at his weddings and functions is nothing but pure magic. Here are some highlight's of his book and other pictures that I have sourced from Preston Bailey. I hope you find it as inspiring and magical as I do. Happy Tuesday everyone! May your life be filled with flowers and joy!
