LOV (Lily of the Valley)


     I made these bouquets for hostess/thank you gifts Thursday night to take to my royal wedding watching parties on Friday.

That middle bouquet contains 100 stems, and its delicate scent was transcendent.

     How tickled we all were to see Kate get out of the rolls carry a bouquet that seemed to be made all of LOV.  According to the official royal wedding blog, the “bouquet is a shield-shaped wired bouquet of myrtle, lily-of-the-valley, sweet William and hyacinth.”  Talk about sweet smelling.

     It was as sophisticated, elegant and beautiful as Catherine, herself, and overall, we witnessed a wedding for the ages.
