Today I thought I would talk about the super cheerful sunflower. One reason it seems appropriate to talk about the sunflower is because I live in a city where the sun never sleeps. We are almost into September and there are still plenty of days over 100Ëšahead of us. By this time we Phoenicians are DONE with the heat!

Sunflowers are so bright and cheerful, check out this beautiful sunflower wedding picture-18from The Brides Cafe. I love the look of this wedding because she used only sunflowers- no filler, no other flowers. Using sunflowers alone is my favorite way to use them because they make SUCH a big statement, adding anything else can cheapen the look.

This inspiration board came from Snippet & Ink, she does inspiration boards to perfection. Check out her website, it’s just a little bit addicting.
