The Last of IT!

The last of my Valentine's Day arrangement pictures. The bad news.... I did a super cool event that I didn't take a single picutre of. It certainly isn't the first priority but it's always a bummer when a whole week of production isn't documented at all.

THANKS to everyone who supported the shop this Valentine's Day. We had so much fun!!


The Bloomington Bridal Show

Unfortunately, I was unable to participate in the Bloomington Bridal Show this year. The date of the show fell on Valentine's Day, and with all the orders at the shop I decided I couldn't spare the time. I was able to create some arrangements for a few of the other tables though. Here are a couple pictures of what Peppertree contributed.


Personalized Tribute

When I first started working on funerals I wasn't sure how I'd feel being involved in such an intimate time. I've been surprised to find that, just like with the weddings I am so much more familiar with, being included in this process is an honor. It's one of my favorite parts of my job getting to know someone and being able, through flowers, to communicate their style and interests.
These tributes were made for a sweet sweet man. He always grew sunflowers in his garden and worked as a bus driver. The thought of including buses in an arrangement was initially a bit daunting, but I had a great time honoring him through the creative process.

Whether it's a wedding, a funeral, a party or any other occasion, don't forget that we are designers as well as florists and look to you (the client) to tell us about yourself so we can make your arrangement(s) just right for you.

Intimate Chapel

Just in.... FABULOUS pictures from Deckard Photography of one of my January weddings. Vicki was one of those super cool brides. She wanted nothing but beautiful flowers and let me work with what was available to make her vision a reality. All white and green (one of my favs).
The bridal incorporated white tulips, anemones, mini calla lilies, freesia, dendrobium orchids and star of Bethlehem with wispy accents of lily grass.
Crisp, clean and uncomplicated. Just goes to show you that white doesn't have to be boring.

Beautiful Tributes

This week I worked with Day Funeral Home to create a beautiful service for one of their clients. Here are some pictures.

The first arrangement was a colorful arrangement meant for all the kids in the family. Every child had a butterfly to take home with a hand-cut heart card with the message "Jesus Loves You". What a cool idea. I thought this would be great for any type of party. You could use this idea for name tags or favors. In the beginning I was definitely concerned about all the butterflies and tags being a distraction but it turned out to be such a great success.
The other colorful arrangement was from the siblings, just bright and cheerful. I loved having creative freedom to create an arrangement perfect for the space.

The casket spray was beautiful. I used timeless choices: roses, iris, tulips, hydrangea and stock.

Katie worked on the cross, traditional white roses and variegated pitt, as well as the herbed heart with freesia accents.
I also worked on a Bible stand. All white flowers made this stand classic with a satin ribbon bookmark embellished with ivy leaves.
Lastly, I was asked to create a floral arrangement including a Classic Winnie the Pooh plush as well as a matching frame for a keepsake picture. This was way too cute and could be easily sent to a new mommy.
This was such a great experience. Thank you, Day, for making my job that much easier.
