Large Scale Floral Arrangements
with Sarah WinwardPhotos by Braedon Flynn

It was such an honor to collaborate with the amazing Sarah Winward for her maker editorial for Flutter Mag and Florabundance Design Days. It’s always my favorite to capture an artist at work, and Sarah is certainly that! The amazing garden of Lotusland served as our backdrop and also, as an impromptu source for floral supplies. Sarah snagged an oversized branch from the gardeners the morning of her shoot to use in her arrangement.

I pulled large urns from Elan Events Rentals and a simple round table from The Tent Merchant. Tricia Saroya lent me some of her collection of galvanized containers to hold the floral ingredients for Sarah’s arrangement. Photographer, Braedon Flynn, picked the spot, a stunning backlit location with giant Agaves on the lawn of Lotusland and it’s actually the very same spot Martha shot a cover for Living a few years ago.

From Sarah:

“I am inspired by the outdoors. I love all of the different regional flowers and foliage, and love watching them change with the season. It is the textures and color combinations that are constantly changing in nature that really ignite the passion for flowers in me.

I love that nature is wild, and unapologetic. I try to show a bit of that in my work. I like lots of different varieties in an arrangement, and I like them to have a fairly loose shape so that they look like they are still close to the garden that they came from.”

Woodland Forest Table
with Francoise WeeksPhotos by KT Merry for Flutter Mag

l

Also in the current issue of Flutter is this woodland tabletop I styled with the work of the amazing floral designer Francoise Weeks as part of Florabundance‘s design days. Shot in the incredible fern garden at Lotusland, I knew the second I say this enormous stag fern that this would be the perfect for Francoise‘s woodland inspired arrangements. I styled the table with simple taupe linen from Porch, driftwood benches from Elan Event Rentals, and teak chargers also from Elan. Valerie Rice of Eat Drink Garden made a simple pea salad, crostini, and cumquat drink to compliment the table design. In lieu of a traditional printed menu, Rebekah Miles painted on oversized tropical leaves. I love how this table turned out. And you can check out the full spread in Flutter Mag issue 6.
