Alfresco Dining on the Flint River

Last week, I whipped up a sample bouquet and centerpiece. Shown below is the in-studio photo. The bouquet and centerpiece contained tweedia, succulents, zinnias, alchemilla, geranium, lisianthus, freesia and craspedia.

After photographing the pair in my studio I decided that they needed to be displayed in their own vignette. I prowled downtown Flint for a half hour, and rediscovered this sweet, pergola-covered deck overlooking the Flint River. Perfect!

It was such a romantic set up! I had my husband with me, and I should have brought dinner too! I guess there’s always next week!
