Happy New Year!

New in 2020! We will be celebrating 10 years of business in July and with the anniversary, comes a unique twist to the boutique and studio space located in downtown Brighton. The space and decor have been updated to allow for more workshops in the coming year along with some “do-it-yourself” stations. See our Workshops page for more details!

Original artwork has also been added to the walls throughout the space for a fun, colorful vibe. The gallery will change frequently featuring the work of owner, Tracey Flanigan, as well as that of local Michigan artists.

The newly updated space includes a potting station where you can select plants to pot up yourself or let us put together a combination for you, a stems bar where gorgeous blooms can be purchased individually or you can make your own custom bouquet and a gallery space for original artwork.

We will guide you in selecting the perfect gift with questions such as, “centerpiece or tall vase arrangement?”, “rustic or polished?”, “traditional red & white or white & gold, blue & silver, etc.?”

Not only are floral arrangements a beautiful way to decorate the home or office for the season but at this time of the year, the evergreens make them wonderfully fragrant and long lasting.

The Autumnal Shift

The days grow shorter, the air colder and the shift in seasons can be seen all around us in Michigan. I know I am among many who call this their favorite time of year.

fall_roadside
I had to stop to photograph this view while driving home last week!

In the florist’s world, the change in seasons also brings new materials, both fresh and dried that can be incorporated into our designs. And believe me, we love the chance to play with all of the textures and subtleties in color. Even the foliage is unique at this time of year!

Lush and textural centerpiece for Carrie & Brian’s reception on October 19th.

Lotus pods, cattails, wheat and dried grasses can add that fall touch to an arrangement.

The addition of fruit to a table arrangement just feels right in the autumn.

ceramic_pumpkin
The long lasting nature of many of the flowers at this time of year is a huge bonus.

I also love when I am able to support a local flower farmer by purchasing their fresh product. I have three resources within the county who stop into the studio throughout the fall season with blooms and dried materials from their own land.

Local celosia, amaranth, zinnias and ageratum.

Carrie’s bouquet of pincushion protea, leucadendron, gerpoms, safflower, thistle and more!

Finally, there is the absolute pleasure of designing for the fall bride. It is just stunning when the theme of the wedding parallels the season and the bounty that is available!

Oh, September…

…there are so many gorgeous flower choices and color combinations at this time of year, it makes my head spin!

Lynn_bouquet
Such a subtle fall color scheme- warm Sahara roses, burgundy dahlias and ranunculus, a touch of blue thistle, and succulents. Lynn’s bouquet from her September 15th wedding to Marcus.

I love the richness of combining deep burgundy and eggplant with lighter tones and eucalyptus foliage.

Lynn_Center1

Sunflowers seem to symbolize that transitional time between summer heat and the crispness of fall. They are one of those versatile and long lasting blooms that look as great in a bridal bouquet as they do in a table arrangement!

Sunflower_box_kate

There are more opportunities at this time of year to buy locally sourced product. Some of my favorites in September are zinnias, celosia and anything that will dry nicely- think pods, cattails and grasses!

As the colors changes outdoors, the use of foliage and textures becomes more important heading into the holiday season. I love incorporating berries and succulents into tablescapes, when possible.
