It’s pretty normal for you to find my nose deep in any floral related book I can get my hands on. There is something so fascinating to me about the intricacies of flowers. From the smells, textures, shapes, patterns, colors, meanings, origins…I think ultimately it is seeing the Lord’s handiwork scattered across the earth with a gentle reminder that sometimes the most beautiful of things take time and usually grow through a whole lot of dirt and that out of patience and grace, we to can flourish from the messes of everyday life.
Here at Southern Posies, we LOVE working with other creatives on fun and fresh projects. When Lauren Kendrick, owner of the cutest little monogram shop, Sassy Biscuit, gave us a shout to contribute to her beautifully-southern styled shoot, we just couldn’t resist. Lauren was inspired for this shoot by everything she adores about the South, from our beautiful plantations, to the Spanish moss hanging from the trees, to heirloom monograms. Our gal Reese Witherspoon said it best when she said, “My rule is if it’s not moving — monogram it!” Together with some awesome vendors, Lauren’s vision of Contemporary Southern Elegance came to life on a sweet spring afternoon.
Heading out west is one of mine and my husbands fav vacays we take every year. Mammoth Lakes, California is tippy top of our list and where we usually go every summer. This year we are flying out to Gardiner, Montana and taking in all the sights of Yellowstone. Packing my suitcase is always an adventure (I always hit close to 60 lbs. on the Delta scale, #bringontheextracharge) as I am usually the girl who has to sit on her suitcase to close it. This year I am trying hard though y’all. Pushing for a simplified packing list + no overweight fees… so wish me luck! Here is a peek at what I am packing:
Yay you’re engaged! All of those pretty details are coming together and now it’s time to add them to paper.

No need to stress, sweet bride. We have you covered!
Today, there are a few ways you can customize your invitation to fit the style of your wedding. Below is a cheat sheet breaking down each line, where it should go and how to say it!
Super excited to introduce to the craziest member of our team. Boasting a title of Human Resources Manager, this professional tail wagger and greeter brings us and our clients a lot of joy (and laughs).
Currently, Scout is in Americus, Georgia with a trainer who is teaching her retrieving for hunting (the hubs is a big bird hunter). Really missing this little brown dog but excited to see her come back with new tricks of the trade in a few months.

When sweet Elisabeth, with Elisabeth and Butter, contacted us about a super fun shoot with Draper James of course our southern (and Reese Witherspoon!) loving hearts did not skip a beat in saying YES. With honor and respect for family and heritage, Draper James ranks high on our list with likeminded ideals of hospitality, grace and charm. To boast those southern principles loud and proud we channeled our inner Shelby (Steel Magnolias, friends) and went with a signature blush and bashful palette.
