Summer Sunflower Details

Driving through the central valley yesterday, I saw field after field of sunflowers - their little faces turned up toward the sun basking in every ray. I love how wonderfully tall and lanky they are with such heavy bright yellow heads. They are just happy flowers. So I thought I would take a stab at designing a post around the sunflower as a wedding element. These flowers really work well paired with non-traditional materials such as wicker, metals, leather, wood, and raffia. They are such a fun flower that you can take and shape into so many different wedding visions.

Sunflowers and cowboy boots work so darn well together...

This cake is so pretty, loving the petal details and the ribbon.

I couldn't resist this sweet brooch...

And fabulous scented favors...

The deep brown of this wicker charger shows off the sunflower.

Galvanized tins are another great way to display these guys.

I know these flowers on the invite are dahlias, but they give such a warm sunshine vibe like the sunflower so I had to include them. Plus there are some really funky looking sunflower invites out there...

Loving how they pop on this wooden arch.
Hope you enjoyed! See you Tuesday on Bay Area Bride Guide and see you back here on Wednesday!
