Buffy Hargett Miller’s Summer Harvest Arrangements
Floral designer Buffy Hargett Miller produces summer-ripened arrangements that look inspired by a trip to the farmers market
“I see light, texture, and graphic patterns in everyday objects, such as an artichoke, a rusted piece of metal, or the intricate patterns found in aged concrete or marble. Inspiration is everywhere,” says Buffy Hargett Miller, of Birmingham-based Buffy Hargett Flowers. A photo stylist for Southern Living, Miller also channels her creativity through oil painting.

“The fruits and vegetables at the farmers market always give me inspiration for combinations of summer colors, textures, and scents with an unexpected twist.”–Buffy Hargett Miller
