Oh, how we love weddings…

Each bouquet we design is as unique as the bride who carries it!

I love finishing a bouquet with a special family item such as a handkerchief from Grandma.

It’s such a satisfying process to go from an initial consultation with a couple, getting a feel for their style, color scheme, etc. to ordering the freshest seasonal product and then bringing it all together with the creation of finished florals.

Maureen selected succulents and Juliet garden roses for her bouquet in a rustic, barn setting.

Another great perk to designing wedding florals~ visiting so many unique and beautiful venues! Each location dictates a different tone for the ceremony and reception decor.

Maureen and Alek were married May 21st at a rustic setting in Howell, MI.

Stacy and Michael were married May 20th at The Gandy Dancer, Ann Arbor, MI.

Preeta and Bradley were married May 21st and held their reception on the outdoor patio at The Gandy Dancer.

Fruit and Flowers- a Thanksgiving Tradition

227

Fruit and Flowers Centerpiece. (As shown $79.)

When I think of Thanksgiving my mind goes to time with family and friends, a large elaborate meal, and of course…decorating the table!

In preparation for this time of year, I always stock the studio with earthy, natural elements that we can incorporate into our designs- wheat, millet, lotus pods, birch branches, cattails, etc. As I was perusing the aisles at my local wholesale showroom, I noticed a section of cornucopia baskets and they brought back memories of working at my mom’s floral business back in the 80’s and how these long horn shaped containers were a Thanksgiving staple. It got me thinking…why did we use those?!, what is the symbolism of a cornucopia?, and how could I create a modern version?

Of course I referenced Wikipedia and here is their explanation: “The cornucopia (from Latin cornu copiae) or horn of plenty is a symbol of abundance and nourishment, commonly a large horn-shaped container overflowing with produce, flowers or nuts. In most of North America, the cornucopia has come to be associated with Thanksgiving and the harvest.”

Cornucopia Centerpiece with succulents, fruit and unique blooms. (As shown $85,  scaled down version starting at $65.)

So here we go, Thanksgiving centerpiece offerings for this year incorporating nuts, fruit and gourds along with beautiful blooms. You can keep the tradition going with a cornucopia basket or opt for a more modern container such as a wooden box or a glass cylinder. Let us know your specifications- we would love to design something special for your holiday table!

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.)

Wreath_airplants, berries

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.

Fall Inspired Designs

orchid-thanksgiving-centerpiece-closeup

When the seasons change and the fresh product available takes a shift, I always feel inspired. Along with shorter days and falling leaves, the autumn season brings an array of brightly colored and highly textural materials. It seems that at this time of year, keeping fresh flowers indoors on the table or at the beside can make even more of an impact on our mood.
