Centrepieces : Fuchsia peonies, sweet
peas, and anemones pop against a sandy
backdrop. Add dimension by combining
vessels in various styles, materials
(earthenware, smoked glass), and tones.
Pillow with Ribbon : We think a homemade
ring pillow has tons more charm than
most store-bought options. Choose a
pretty fabric and sew your own from a
pair of squares. (If the thought of
needle and thread makes you itch, enlist
a crafty friend.) Secure bands with a
ribbon tacked to the top.
Boutonniere : Even
accessories can make a big statement
when done right. This vibrant spray-rose
boutonniere, accented with jasmine and
millinery flowers and wrapped in ribbon,
may be miniature but it won't be missed
when set against a pale khaki jacket.
