there were two things i was certain of when i got engaged
the guy i was going to marry
and that there would be mason jars at my wedding
lots of them
everything else seemed to fall into place
around all the mason jars of course
...and then came baby...

red + white = dreamy winterland: wedding & shower decor

i am a total sucker for these wonderfully simple red berries. i absolutely love the first photograph and am on the hunt for white peonies to spruce up our mini apartment. the thing about living in new york is that you usually have no control over your heat, and in a teeny tiny amount of space, it can be quite difficult for plants and flowers to survive (not to mention, my skin!) but the great thing about these beautiful berries is that they work wonderfully into a winter wedding theme and, even better, a little goes a long way!

does anyone know the fancy name of these berries? one day (perhaps 14 years from now) when the hubs & i own a home, i'd like to plant one of these bushes.
