I nearly fell out of my chair when I set sights on this beauté of a bouquet that we featured last winter. It's a gem that would shine any season, but I'm especially loving this distinctive palette of coral, huckleberry and peach for a pop at fall fetes. The talented team at Bows + Arrows is giving us the breakdown this weekend paired with imagery from Sarah Kate and Joshua Aull. See the whole shoot in THE VAULT.

From Alicia... I had the best time in California sourcing and creating this bouquet! I visited the LA flower market and the farmers market to find the variety of blooms and derived my exact color palette from what was in season and what was the most beautiful! Knowing that I was working with a vineyard as my setting, I wanted to create a look that was harmonious with the landscape and worked with the plump dark grapes that surrounded us.
