A French Inspired Bridal Bouquet

I absolutely adore all things French. From classic Provencal meals, to the rustic country side and of course the luscious gardens and floral displays, I often find myself smiling and full. One thing the French are famous for is monochromatic designs and simple elegance. I love how timeless and romantic an all white bouquet is. When everything is left to texture and form - I am enchanted!

This bouquet looks like the flowers were gathered straight out of a French garden. Beautiful garden roses, tulips, fragrant stock and lilies and hints of mini variegated pittosporum leaves exemplifies the love and lust of a Paris evening.                          

The subtle gray/blue ribbon gives a wonderful contrast to the cream and white blooms. It is understated yet bold and the perfect end to this charming bouquet!

Perennial Garden Design

Recently I was asked to do something very special in tribute of a client's friend's passing. Instead of a traditional sympathy arrangement, she is gifting a memorial garden for the family to plant in their honor. This basket is filled with sun-loving perennials that can be removed and placed into the garden - the gorgeous blooms will return year after year. 

There is something truly remarkable about the serenity and peace that can be found only in a garden. As an avid gardener myself I can think of no better way to honor a loved one and keep their presence with me than with a gorgeous garden planted in their name.

With Memorial Day around the corner, contact me today if you'd like to remember your loved ones in this very special way.

Teacher Appreciation Day

What a great way to start the day - peonies, ranunculus, happy yellow roses and flowers farmed under sustainable practices! 

It is Teacher Appreciation Week and tonight a local school is holding a dinner in honor of its very important, excellent teachers! 

I chose to keep the arrangements fun and light-hearted.  While making them I tried to keep in mind the daily life of a teacher and all the joy, excitement, curiosity and laughter that children bring to our lives. I hope it makes them smile when they see them!

Not only are the arrangements full of color and texture, they also have a very funky vase treatment. I took bullion wire and made a net for the vases to fit in. 

A great big THANK YOU to teachers everywhere!
