I probably make this statement to fit with each season, but I really think this season is true: late summer flowers are my favorite. The rich warm colors carry us in to fall, while the whispy textures of all the wildflowers and pods remind us of all the outdoor fun we've had all summer.
And the dahlias start blooming. What could be better?!
For this outdoor summer party we went with dahlias, fountain grass, poppy pods, blackberries and straw flowers mixed with a few other flowers to make each arrangement slightly different.
