Can you believe this go-go-gorgeous weather we’ve been having?! I am counting down the hours until I can enjoy one of these bad boys with the beau on our deck…..I LOVE me a good ol’ salty dog and the addition of blackberries brings this cocktail to another level. Enjoy!
1 1/2 shots of vodka
4-6 fresh blackberries
Grapefruit juice (get fancy and make it fresh, totally worth it!)
*Muddle blackberries and lime wedge in a flat-surfaced glass (extract oils from lime rind), add vodka and fill with grapefruit juice. Serve on the rocks with a salted rim.

I love mixing seasonal produce in floral arrangements, here blackberries on the branch add texture to this pink, purple and red arrangement.
I used a mix of clematis, hyacinth, ranunculus, anenomes, sweet pea, hellebore, and blackberries to create this wild and organic look. To re-create this look:
Start with a low bowl, using clear floral tape, tape a grid across the top of the bowl. Go around the rim of the bowl with another piece of tape to secure your grid to the bowl. Begin placing the berries to create your base shape. Follow up with placing: hyacinth, hellebore, sweet pea, anenome and clematis. You will need approximately a half bunch per flower type. Happy arranging!

I love this simple and sweet boutonniere that matches the bouquet and doggy ring bearer ideas. To make a boutonniere, simply hold a ranunuclus, sweet pea, and clematis leaf between your fingers. Use stretchy green floral tape and wind it around the flowers. Cover with a length of ribbon and pin or hot glue to hold it in place.
