I know. This might be weird. But I had this *brilliant* (in my eyes, at least) idea of how to do something different for one of my client's Salsa Dance themed wedding this summer. I put together a bright, floral print linen, white china, bright napkins, chile can vase, and spray painted a tumbleweed (which are quite hard to find here, BTW) and used parsley to fill in the gaps of the vase. I welcome your feedback *swallow nervously*!
Of course the photos are by the handsome, Mr. Haack.

Craft time. Flower alternative time. Who did I call for help? Domestic Day! In my book, she is the Queen of Crafters. We decided to make a billy ball look-a-like out of crafting supplies. I'm going to show you how we did it. Here you go:
1 bowl of hot water
1 bowl of cool water
Dish Soap (I of course recommend something environmentally friendly)
Package of Natural Wool Roving.
Pipe cleaners or wood skewers for stem of flower
Cut out a piece of roving. The length determines how large of a ball you get. Just experiment at first, until you figure out how large you need them to be for your specific project. In this picture I cut out about 6 inches.
Tie the roving in a knot right in the middle.
Step 3: Spread out the roving evenly on each side of the knot.
Step 4: Bunch both frayed ends around the knot.
Step 5. Once you have bunched the roving together, put a small dot of dish soap in the palm of your hand about the size of a lima bean. MMMM, when is the last time you had lima beans? So good.
Start rolling the roving around in your hand to saturate the wool with soap.
Once you feel like you have spread the soap out a bit, dip the roving ball in the hot water.
Continue to roll around in your hands to create a ball. As the ball gets soapy, continue to dip in the hot water. I rolled each ball around for about 1 minute, and dipped into the hot water 3-4 times.
Once you feel as though you have rolled out a majority of the soap, dip the entire thing in the cold water.
Continue to roll around in your hands to dry it out a bit.
Stick a wooden skewer, floral wire, or pipe cleaner into the ball to create a stem.
Place in your arrangement of choice. YES.

Obsessed. That is all I have to say. Josh and Jordan: the most perfectly sweet and amazing couple. They gave me full reign in design with a few ideas of what they like. Their families were glorious. Their friends were spectacular. It was truly a perfect experience. I felt so blessed, lucky, and was just beaming to be a part of it. Ok, enough. Let me tell you about the design.
Lanterns. Amy Butler fabrics. Vintage frames. WHITE CHIAVARI CHAIRS! Kale blooms in the bouquets. Sweet and Saucy inspired cake. Stephanie Williams behind the lens. LOVE IT ALL. What do you think?
