How much do you love this photo of Goldfish Kiss? This could be a cover of Vogue in the 70's. Love the golden tones, the messy hair, the lily she used like a hibiscus.

During my first conversation with the florist, I explained that I wanted peonies as my wedding flowers. Soft colors with texture, like the bouquet above. I then learned that both peonies and aneomes were out of season in October....so I needed to go back to the drawing board. This ended up being a blessing as I love what we ended up with! (Lesson-check out garden roses if you love peonies).
Below is some peony inspiration if they're in season for you.
Peony season is of course Spring. April, May, and June.

I discovered The Home Edit through Instagram. I think they took over for Domino one day. Look at all these closets, refrigerators, and cabinets! Ahhhh......looks so nice. Hint: mine do not look like these!
Notice some themes. Put things in containers/buckets. Add a label with a pretty pen and nice handwriting. Group like items together based on category. This feels so much calmer and helps people find what they need. Nothing too crowded.
