It's no surprise that I, a former florist, love working on the flowers in the magazine. In our winter issue, you'll find "Old, New, Borrowed, Blue," one of my favorite stories because I got to collaborate with my friend and florist extraordinaire Naomi DeManana, food editor Elizabeth Colling, and other talented MSW staff to create these beautiful images.
Elizabeth and I made these sugar garden roses to be used as cake toppers for our "Old" tablescape. In the end, we arranged them with real garden roses in our well opener. Check it out in our magazine to see if you can tell which ones are the real roses.
Our Spring issue will be available next week, so make sure to get our winter issue before it's off newsstands!
