When beautiful & creative minds plus a strong, loving, energy come together – like between a girl & her mama, magic happens. It is that simple. The kind of magic that makes your heart sing huge tunes. Add the fact that the mother has a love of flowers and her daughter has flower girl wishes; you have the makings of the best day ever.

All you need are a few easy to find materials from your yard, craft store or favorite florist.

Plus, a few easy steps.

Just an eence of time, a little imagination and dream of fun.

And there you have it – a collaborative effort between a mother and daughter. While helping me with a dear friend’s wedding, Beatrice confided she has forever fancied being a flower girl. So, she and I teamed up to make that happen.

Crowned with a hand-made, floral, ring of natural tones and gentle pops of color, bride’s bouquet in hand, she delivered the bridal bouquet. Viola! The prettiest flower girl. Making her castle in the sky a reality was the inspiration, and oh did it happen. When I asked (okay begged) the amazing Haley Sheffield to share the photos from the moment, she was happy to oblige.

For a little flower love story that trust me you don’t want to miss plus the full skinny on how to make one yourself see the whole post on Camp Makery and Pottery Barn.
