Welcoming fall

I have a peony problem—we all do, it's ok. Peonies are the heart eyes emoji of the flower world. That said after I put together my first collection of arrangements I realized I needed to branch out (that wasn't an intentional pun, but I'm leaving it).  

Over the weekend I bought a bunch of what I call "the cheapies" at Whole Foods and started experimenting with new techniques. I've never been a big fan of sunflowers or daisies, but now that I've taken them apart and studied their intricacies, I have a brand new appreciation for these beauties. 

Here are the results of my experiments, which make me beyond happy. I'm loving this color palette (even with its lack of pink) and think these little guys are the perfect way to welcome a new season. 

Happy first day of fall!
