In a second group shot, young Florence - who is Harry's goddaughter - does not have a bouquet altogether. Prince Harry and Meghan delighted fans with their official wedding portraits yesterday - but eagle-eyed royal watchers were quick to spot a mistake The sweet photographs taken by photographer Alexi Lubomirski featured Meghan's six bridesmaids and four page boys Dress your little princess in white like Charlotte in Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy Princess Charlotte always looks adorable, and her cuteness reached a whole new level in this gorgeous little flower girl dress. The mini royal helped Meghan walk up the aisle, and did it in style with a classic white frock and a pretty floral headband. The traditional silk piece is by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy, who also designed the bride's stunning gown, and her little outfit was finished with a pair of monogrammed Aquazurra pumps. Sadly this bespoke design isn’t available to us non-Royals but if you have a big day coming up over the next few months, you can kit the little ones out in something similar with one of the below dresses.

Positively Upstate: Local artist creates sash of flowers for horses at SaratogaTuesday, June 19, 2018
So, Friday will be crunch-time for Garrett and her team at their workspace at Dehn’s Florist. Each individual flower is cut and hand sown into the quilt. Altogether, Garrett says there’s usually 750 to 800 flowers on a single blanket.“So, I have a team of volunteers and friends and my husband. We bring in pizza and we do it. Each blanket, just hand sowing them, it’s around 5 hours.”Friday at midnight a refrigerated truck collects the blankets and brings them down to Belmont park. The following day, Susan does a quick look-over before the races and then waits for her moment to relax.“Once those blankets go on the horse … it’s a big sigh of relief.” She laughs. “I’m in awe, I really am.”Garrett’s artistic talents go far beyond flowers – to check out more of her creations, visit her website: www.susansprouts.com... http://cbs6albany.com/community/positively-upstate/positively-upstate-local-artist-creates-sash-of-flowers-for-horses-at-saratoga

All You Need to Create the It-Flower Arrangement of the Season - Architectural DigestMonday, May 07, 2018
One might call them bud vases if they didn’t feel like a new category altogether.“My fritillaria are just blooming,” says storied ceramic artist Frances Palmer over the phone, taking a break from unpacking dahlia tubers to admire the oxblood and white petals hanging in her Connecticut garden like checkered bells. For these early spring blooms, she designed a white bottleneck container with a neck so long and narrow that it can support the height and weight of a single, solitary stunner. “Sometimes the single bloom is just so incredibly exquisite. People always gravitate toward a big [arrangement], but I like it when you can revel in the beauty of the color and shape of just one flower,” she says. Frances has been known to place a sole fragrant sweet pea, lily, or rose on bedside tables and bathroom counters, and has lined entire dining tables with single stems standing side by side. Looking beyond the pedestrian bud vase, she’s dreamed up single-stem vases that are more altar than vessel, often inspired by the very flowers that they hold.“I keep a vase by my wheel while I’m working so I can keep [a specific flower] in mind,” Frances admits. Where she specializes in classical forms with a whimsical twist, Eva Levin of Scandanaviaform offers bulbous glass vases in multiple sizes that give the spectral effect of a flower floating in air. Then there’s Anna Varendorff of ACV Studios and Valeria Vasi, who offer circular variations in brass and stoneware, respectively. And Fruit Super’s aptly named Anywh...
