Rows of Roses...

It has been a day full of roses! It has been a day full of roses! Wedding season also means anniversary season! Our phone has been ringing off the hook with beautiful rose anniversary arrangement. From classic dozen reds, mixed roses, or something with more of a contemporary flare; we consider ourselves experts in the last minute moments of life; anniversaries, birthdays, thank you's, and my personal favorite: the just because surprises. This beautiful vase was brought in by Pete from Arko USA in Spring, and helped to create a beautiful contemporary arrangement with roses and star of bethlehem.

This arrangement was a gorgeous mix of 24 long stem red roses, star gazer lilies, altrsomeria, deep purple stock, snap dragons, and seeded eucalyptus for a soft draping effect. A stunning presentation for your one and only.
We are experts in last minute memories! We offer same day service, or we can custom order specific varieties. Give us a call, we'd love to make you something beautiful for your special someone.

Happy Thanksgiving

We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, full of great food, family, friends, and of course beautiful flowers!
We had the time of our lives creating a giant cornucopia bursting at the seams with flowers for the Carlton Woods Thanksgiving day feast. We also made a turkey out of flowers, and a beautiful table scape with baskets of fruits and veggies, colorful plants, and beautiful flowers. Even our friend the turkey made an appearance.

We are so grateful for you, our loyal customers. We hope you will have a happy and joyous holiday season. Happy Thanksgiving!

7th Anniversary Party-2009 Holiday Open House

First and foremost we want to thank all of you who came by to celebrate with us. It is always a pleasure to get to spend some time with our customers in a more casual setting, and for you to come see the wide array of possibilities for your holiday decor.
Each desk had a holiday color scheme, a beautiful showpiece, and a few coordinating pieces to inspire our clients. Autumn graced the first desk with its rich firey tones and passionate colors incorporating circus roses, purple dendrobium orchids, fresh kale, upside-down wheat, succulents, and chocolate accents. Then we asked ourselves "What autumn scene would be complete without a cornucopia bursting with beautiful color, berries, flowers, and vegetation?" We couldn't think of a better accent piece.
Rich, elegant, and regal designs graced the second table with tone on tone red arrangements. The showpiece incorporated ginger, anthirium, roses, mesh netting, birch branches, and ornaments in a beautiful trumpet vase. Accent pieces included a bowlie filled with lucious black magic red roses, and a whismical vase with red pebbles and red tulips.The most classic color scheme graced the 3rd table with a classic all white pallet. Lilies, hydrangea, roses, spider mums, and blueplurum created a lush, soft, and romantic ambiance. Accent pieces in candle holders were a fun way to add color and heigth with coordinating pieces.

My favorite color scheme made its appearance on the 4th table; a green godess if you will. Spiders, roses, blueplurum, buttons, hydrangea, and a mixed variety of green set the tone for a sultry centerpiece ina black wrought iron candelabra dripping with glass crystals.

A snow inspired pallet of blue, white, and silver combined to create a beautiful centerpiece in our 40" silver candelabras draped in crystals. Overall we had a wonderful night filled with amazing food, stunning design, and great company. Thank you again to all of you who came to celebrate with us.
We also had a drawing at the end of the night for a beautiful holiday/ Thanksgiving centerpiece for one lucky guest: Miss Sophie Bradie! Please contact us sometime in November to arrange to pick up your free holiday centerpiece. Congratulations!
Don't forget to leave a comment during the month of November for a chance to win a free bouquet. Our winner will be announced December 1st (see the sidebar for more details).

Thomas Markle Jewelers

We were asked to create some stunning pieces to compliment the decor of the new Thomas Markle Jewelers store in Market Street for their Grand Opening November 7th. They were looking for visually interesting pieces, primarily vertical with chocolate wire accents, chocolate cumbidium orchids and coffee bean. This combination of tropical and hot colors created the perfect balance of impact and interest without distracting from the gorgeous jewels themselves. All with a touch of chocolate, who couldn't use a little more chocolate in their life?

Angles and Texture

One of our favorite things to do at the shop is come up with new, distinctive and creative ways to use flowers to accentuate any event. Combining different textures with sharp angles gave these tablescapes a very masculine and dramatic aura.

We also used the same idea in two tall coordinating arrangements with the equisitem, pin cushion protea, james storii orchids, and varigated flax leaves.
