Left Over Flowers

[All Photos - The Grower's Daughter]

I hope you're all having a restful Sunday. We're so thankful for a quiet day today as a family, with gorgeous weather and nothing to do but relax after a busy, but amazing, weekend.

Both weddings were so beautiful and turned out so perfectly, but there will be photos coming later on them so I won't get into any details!

I just quickly wanted to share some of the most gorgeous flowers that are making my house smell beautiful.

They are left overs from my sister's wedding - White Peonies, which graced the tables and filled her bouquet, and Antique Cream Garden Roses which were for our bouquets (the bridesmaids), and filled old rusty sap buckets around the barn. The Hydrangeas were placed in sap buckets as well (above), and were part of the front of the church for the ceremony, and were also around the head table later.

The cut flowers are so fragrant and brighten every room in my house!

Have a lovely week ladies.

  5. Dearest Maria,

    What a lovely peonies! Love the name of your blog; the grower's daughter. Looks familiar to me as I too was the daughter of a market gardener, more or less born in the greenhouses between the lettuce, gherkins, English cucumbers and tomatoes. Your husband's last name sounds Dutch too.

    Am your new follower and sending you lots of love and enjoy the afterglow of your sister's wedding!
