Backyard Blooms

If you are the least bit familiar with Darling Cashmere or my Instagram then you know I am a complete sucker for fresh flowers. Trader Joe's and the local farmers markets are truly my best friends on the weekends. I'll take bunches of peonies, ranunculus, tulips, hydrangeas, or a bright mixed bouquet anytime.

For the 4th of July weekend, though, I decided to do a little backyard rummaging. The bright red crocosmia caught my eye immediately, and I knew it would make the perfect start to a red, white, and blue arrangement. I gathered several stems of that, then headed over the field by our house for some white queen anne's lace. Finding blue flowers proved a bit more difficult, but I knew I had several vintage blue mason jars stashed away that would complete the look.

It took several attempts to get the arrangement just right on all sides, but I was quite pleased with the turnout, and it was an easy decoration that smelled fantastic for the long, holiday weekend!
