Fall Floral Inspirations + Champagne Palace Photoshoot

Can you believe that it is September already? Not just September, but four days into September!  Where has the time gone?!  Even though the heat is still here and it still feels like summer, for Kim Starr Wise Floral Events it is starting to look like a little bit like fall.

The blogosphere is making it feel like autumn too.  One of our daily blog reads, A Cup of Jo, recently featured dark red lips as a fall trend.

FALL TRENDS: DARK RED LIPSTICK

Today, another one of my daily reads, Coco+Kelley, featured the long anticipated photos from her blog’s five-year anniversary dinner party.  The photos of the party were, without a doubt, worth the wait.  Cassandra put together a gorgeous affair, curated perfectly.  What we would have given to be guests!

Here’s a look at a few of the snapshots particularly the flower arrangements created by Seattle based floral designer McKenzie Powell.

DINNER PARTY FLORAL ARRANGEMENTS

The pictures from Cassandra’s soiree reminded me of a photoshoot that we recently had at the Champagne Palace.  This is one of our favorite looks and it’s too bad it wasn’t a real dinner party!

Kim chose her color palate to be the vibrant and bright greens of summer, and the rich jeweled tones of autumn.  The texture and playfulness of the greens are contrasted by the lush and almost-ruffled purples.  The perfect flowers to complement the transition from summer to fall.

Seems like everyone is getting the memo to start thinking about fall floral designing. It’s fast approaching, and I can almost smell the pumpkin spice latte!
