White Roses on the Mantle

 Today was graduation at the college I work for and I ordered too many roses on purpose to hand out to each graduating senior.  Of course I took home the leftovers and they look amazing on my mantle.  Clearly when you have such a big, beautiful bouquet of roses, you have to have a photo shoot!
Can you tell I had too much fun and took too many pictures?!  The roses, lace and pearls were just begging for their pictures to be taken.


 I wish I could afford to have roses like this gracing my mantle all the time!
These roses came all the way from Florida to Idaho and they are big and beautiful  I am going to try my best to dry them so I can enjoy them even longer.





 I love how the focus on the white tulle made the pearls have a bokeh look to them.  So pretty!




See, I had so much fun with these beautiful white roses!  

Thanks to everyone for your thoughts and prayers for my brother's dog.  Everyday it gets a little easier though we will always mourn his loss.
