For this aisle they got some potted annuals and cheap baskets at a home garden center. As Ariel said, “So simple… so effective. I love how just a few little details can totally make a space feel sacred.”

Oh my gawd, how much do I love the big bright non-matching parasols? A lot. This photo from Alda and Bob's Maui wedding just made my heart explode with happy.
