Pick-me-up Ideas for the Cold Months

Protea and foliage designs created for my own dining table.

Let’s face it, the cold weather and shorter days really do have an effect on our mood. Even before I opened my own floral studio, I found that fresh flowers and plants were an easy way to lift my spirits.

Whether you float a few fragrant blooms in a dish or a purchase more dramatic display, flowers at the bedside can set the tone for your entire day and make sleep all the more sweet!

And then there is the power of green plants. Just looking at them makes you feel healthy but there is also the fact that plants can purify the air and add oxygen to your space.

Fall Table Decor Workshop

Saturday, October 31st from 1-2:30pm

Working with locally grown pumpkins, live succulents and mosses, you will be guided to create a table centerpiece that will easily last through Thanksgiving. Succulents are such hardy little plants they will thrive without soil and get moisture from the moss. Dried flowers, small pods and berries will be added for color and texture.

Fee: $45 includes all materials for one large centerpiece or two mini designs.

Class is limited to eight participants so register early by calling 810-227-9500. (We have four spaces open as of 10/25/15.)

Holiday Wreath Workshop

Saturday, December 5th from 1-2:30pm

Make a beautiful and fragrant holiday wreath with fresh evergreens, herbs, pods and berries! This can become a table piece to surround a candle or can be hung on the door. Air plants will be the added for a unique twist and will provide that “living” element to the wreath. Materials and tools will be available, but we suggest bringing along your own wire cutters.

Fee: $65, includes all materials.

Class is limited to eight participants so register early by calling 810-227-9500.

We’re ready for the holidays!

No need for soil!

Some air plants will develop long lasting blooms.

Air plants are also known as, Tillandsia and are in the bromeliad family. Amazingly, these need no soil because water and nutrients are absorbed through the leaves. The roots are used as anchors only. Reproduction is by seeds or by offsets called “pups”. A single plant could have up to a dozen pups. (Thanks to Wikipedia for this info!)

I’m enjoying arranging these unique plants in terrariums, glass spheres and even attached to driftwood. The possibilities are endless.
