The First Day of Spring

It may not be spring-like outside in Michigan yet but inside Art In Bloom we are fully stocked with spring bulbs, blooms and gardens. Let us create a vase or basket full of spring for you!

What: Create you own mini garden! Choose from a variety of green and blooming plants along with unique elements such as moss spheres, pussy willow branches, pebbles, nests and fairy houses. Turn your garden into a spring retreat for the senses and the imagination. Tracey will also provide some practical techniques for proper drainage and the importance of combining compatible plant varieties into a container garden.

Floral and Still Life Paintings

The Art In Bloom Gallery welcomes Michigan artist, Sviatoslav Kozakov. We will be featuring his beautiful impasto oil paintings through mid-May. The textural quality to Sviatoslav’s work comes from a combination of brush and palette knife work. If you’re in the Brighton area, you’ll want to stop in to see these paintings up close!

Congratulations to Kandra and Mark

Here are a few photos taken before the flowers for Kandra and Mark’s wedding were sent out the door on Saturday. I love the choice of succulents and textural elements for both the bride and groom.
