Flowers for an event at Lille Boutique

Earlier this month I did the flower arrangements for the opening night of “Modern Bride”, a photographic exhibit, hosted by Sarah Wizemann, the owner of Lille Boutique.

Wedding photography from Jamie Bosworth, Aisha Harley, Rebekah Johnson and Bryan Wolf – all of them are award winning local photographers – was displayed at Lille Boutique. This is a specialty shop, located on 1007 E Burnside, where you will find elegant lingerie in a comfortable setting.

There was also an exquisite trunk show of hand-crocheted bridal jewelry by Puiyi Tiffany Pang, the amazing creator of Muntedkowhai.

It is always a lot of fun to provide flowers for events like this! Thank you Jamie for taking these great pictures!

Majestic foxtail lilies!

Purples and chartreuse are a favorite color combination! This hand-tied bridal bouquet was made exclusively with seasonal flower treasures.

For this arrangement made with spanish lavender, an artichoke was the ideal vessel.

Another great container: an eggplant!

Baby artichoke halves cover a container; the vibrant blue campanula ‘grows’ out of a very textured base.

Lille is the name of a city in the NE of France. In the 2 dressing rooms, large maps of France and Paris decorate the walls. The maps were a great backdrop for these arrangements made in cones, covered with foliage.

The partial wall was ideal for this low flower garden.

The bridal jewelry, was beautifully displayed on a small antique table; the log arrangement complemented the setting well.

Jamie found the perfect spot to photograph the woodland bridal bouquet!

    Françoise, these are so lovely. It’s incredible to me how you create such beauty with seasonal plants. After reading Amy Stewart’s “Flower Confidential,” I am even more impressed with your passion for seasonality. I love your work – it really makes that already pretty boutique shine!
