Best Flower Arrangements for Fall

A few weeks ago I came home on a Friday from a photo shoot with some leftover blooms in tow.  I set them on the dining room table and every time I walked by them over the course of the next two days, I smiled at the sight of them.  Isn’t it funny how something so small can give us a real tangible happiness effect?  I typically don’t work on Fridays, so I’ve made it part of my Friday routine with Parker to go and pick out flowers just before the weekend.  I usually stick to just one type of bloom for simplicity, but …
