Autumnal Florals

vase_fall

Autumn Elegance ~from $69

Flowers are gifted for so many reasons…to cheer someone who is feeling down, to say, “Get Well,” to celebrate one of life’s big occasions (birthdays, anniversaries, new babies, etc.,) and to express sympathy. Whatever the reason for the order, my goal is always to spend a moment talking with the client (and my assistants are trained to do the same) in order to learn a bit about the recipient and the occasion.

Most often, autumn floral arrangements become part of the decor in the recipient’s home. Our designs can be created in glass, in low ceramic or metal dishes, in wood or birch bark containers and even in pumpkins. Please let us know how we can create a custom design just for you!

If you love one of these designs (created for a previous client,) please let us know by referring to it by name. I honestly strive to work with the freshest and most gorgeous product available to me each week so exactly replicating a past floral design doesn’t usually happen much in my studio. I do, however, promise that every order is treated with utmost care and a unique flair! ūüôā

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!

Pears

A cylinder filled with pecans and designed in a stylized manner with mini callas, pincushion protea and pears. (As shown $75, scaled down version starting at $55.)

Wood_box

This wooden box design makes a great table centerpiece. Gourds, apples and blooms combine for a beautiful fall look. (As shown $65.)

Dramatic fall centerpiece

A tall dramatic design that will make a statement on the buffet or a foyer table. Gourds and pods fill the cylinder that is topped with fresh flowers. (As shown $165- not available in a scaled down version.)

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

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.
