The Feminine Touchby Jennifer Sparks on April 22, 2013 at 8:35 am

The job of a mother requires a certain gentleness, kindness and softness of heart that no one else can imitate. Mothers give so much of their time and energy to others that by the end of the day there is nothing left to give. I wanted to embody that feminine side of a woman by focusing on soft and delicate garden flowers with touches of lace and pearls. My hope is a mother would feel appreciated when receiving these flowers and then pause, light the candles around a bubble bath and just relax.
Flowers and materials featured: Serving dish, votive candles, footed hurricane vase, lace, pearl beads, silver wire collar, purple Midollino sticks, succulent, rose petals, boronia, hydrangea, waxflower, freesia, garden roses, stock, and sword fern
