weekend+notes | 9.9.22

With the passing of Queen Elizabeth II this week, it is captivating to relive the significant moments in history of Her Majesty's life and reflect upon the remarkable legacy of grace, dignity and dedication she leaves behind.

To complement the ongoing coverage of her spectacular reign, I thought I would highlight and share a few cultural aspects and influences from the United Kingdom.

Cheers to a restful weekend.

  4. Learn about the different seasonal flowers and how to style arrangements + marvel at the stunning photography in Willow Crossley's book Flourish or simply follow her on Instagram @willowcrossleycreates for a taste of her floral expertise. You can also check out one of her other three books: The Art of Handmade Living - Inspire: The Art of Living with Nature - The Wild Journal: A Year of Nurturing Yourself through Nature.

  5. House & Garden UK is one of the magazines I reach for at the newsstands when in Europe and they currently have a beautiful tribute to Queen Elizabeth II on their website. It is a delightful source to stay updated throughout the year on British homes, gardens and travel with the option to sign up for their newsletter.

  6. Brief historical overview of the stunning crown jewels and other royal heirloom pieces.

  7. A little background on a classic British tradition - the afternoon tea. Enjoy the experience at any of these elegant locations when visiting England or try it right here in D.C. with the Royal Tea or English Tea package at the Henley Park Hotel.

  8. First held in 1827, the Chelsea Flower Show has evolved into the most famous event in the world delighting royal and non-royal visitors with extravagant and creative floral displays each Spring.
