My husband Wilson made some wooden boxes a couple of years ago for our daughter's wedding, and I have loved designing with them ever since.
So whenever I see boxes at a thrift shop or flea market, I grab them up. They are the perfect containers for couples who want to bring a rustic elegance to their reception designs.
These centerpiece arrangements created for a summer bridal shower were filled with flowers from the garden such as Queen Ann's Lace, Lamb's Ear, Love-in-a-Puff vine, Mountain Mint, zinnias, dahlias and more.
Below is a sewing machine box filled with zinnias and black-eye Susans for an inspiration shoot by Blest Photography.
And for the foodie- kale, purple hull crowder peas, and pattypan squash add a playful touch to this fall design.
