All posts by Art In Bloom

I am an artist, a floral designer and an educator with a passion for combining natural floral elements in an artful way. This blog is intended to represent my business, Art In Bloom, in downtown Brighton, MI. The business offers unique designs of fresh flowers and live plants and strives to use locally sourced and sustainable products, when possible.

Homecoming Dance Season

The transition from late summer to autumn always seems to happen in the blink of an eye in Michigan! The change in seasons brings gorgeous new fresh materials, new textures, warm tones and of course, homecoming games and dances.

Flowers become accessories to wear to the dance and there are so many unique ways to wear them!

Cuff_corsage

Our newest find…and we love to design these little gems…is the gold cuff bracelet corsage! Super comfy and fun to wear, these bracelets adjust to any size wrist and work beautifully with mini succulents, ranunculus blooms and textural accents. Prices range from $32-39. Call to inquire about other color options.

Cuff_feathers&ranunculus

Boutonnieres can also be unique and textural with succulents, thistle, pods, berries and eucalyptus leaves. Prices range from $15-17.

Pearl_corsages

Another favorite of both, our designers and past clients is the pearl or rhinestone bracelet corsage. Petite spray roses and fillers make these just the right size to wear comfortably without too much fuss. Prices range from $35-42.

White_boutonnieres

The options are endless for boutonnieres and corsages. Give us a call or stop by the studio to let us assist you.

Personalized Sympathy Designs

Pink&lavender_casket

When talking with clients about sympathy flowers, our goal is to listen and learn about the deceased so that we may design floral arrangements that best represent who they were and what they meant to you. Please let us know how we can customize your arrangement and add that special touch.

For the love of bouquets

There is something so satisfying in designing a bouquet for a bride and knowing that you have captured her style and essence. Each bouquet I create is as different as the person it is created for!

Emily & Perry, May 13, 2017~ Polo Fields, Ann Arbor

Lately, I have had many email inquiries from young couples who are beginning the process of wedding planning and want to know my pricing or whether I have “packages” available for flowers. The answer, in brief, is no, so sorry! ūüôā The reason I keep my business small is so that I can put a bit of myself into each event and design. I really need to meet with a couple, spend some time discussing their plans and learn about their wedding vision and color scheme. It also helps me tremendously if they are able to provide a few visual images of florals that they love and would like to use as inspiration. I formulate a unique vision for that particular couple that includes elements that may have never been used in other weddings. Again, each wedding I design is as unique and special¬†as the couple who are beginning their lives together.

Fond memories of the 2016 Wedding Season

Well, it’s official…our 2017 Wedding Season is booked! We are super excited to work with so many great couples but also sorry to let others know that our calendar is full and we are no longer booking weddings for this year. If you are in need of flowers for a wedding in 2018 or beyond, please send an email or give me a call to talk about reserving your date.

As we ramp up toward the season to come, I have been reminiscing over some of the photos from last year. Wedding work is so, so much work but also, very rewarding. It is always such a pleasure to meet with couples, talk through their ideas and help them create their own unique vision for the big day. Sending a big Thank You to all of the couples who have entrusted us with your floral accessories and decor!
