Flowers as Art

 Art comes in many different mediums. Our medium is flowers, and sometimes it's amazing what a little creativity can produce.
 Flowers are by themselves so beautiful, and due to the vast variety of different blooms the possibilities are endless. Keeping in mind the basic principles for design (color, balance, line, focal areas, etc) we combined firey colors and moving lines to draw the eyes in and upwards.
As you get closer you begin to appreciate the detail of the combinations and smaller focal areas. The textures play off each other brilliantly and this was one of those pieces you truly could stare at for hours.

Can You Tell Purple Is Our Favorite Color?

 Clustering flowers is one of our favorite ways to make a big impact. When paired with strong lines and beautiful colors it's always striking and makes a big impression.  We love using different lines and shapes to create visual interest in our pieces. Like the Eremurus (Fox tail) in the top picture the curving vertical lines creates a sense of movement, while the green anthirium add stability to the foundation of the piece. Plus, with beautiful color combinations, you really can't go wrong.

Father's Day 2013

 Father's Day was a blast this year, and with any major holiday, there's usually a fabulous party at The Club at Carlton Woods. This year was no exception!
 With stunning tropical buffet centerpieces in a modern and masculine style, these flowers were awe-inspiring.
 With bold mixtures of colors, fabulous tropical and unexpected textures and soaring designs you couldn't help but say wow!
 Some of the flowers used throughout the event were, king protea, cymbidium orchids, lilies, miniature calla lilies, gladiolas, roses, tropical leaves, green trick, thistle, equisitem, hypericum berries, mocara orchids, and spider mums.

It was a wonderful way to celebrate the many father's that we all have in our lives!

Independence Day

Can you believe it's finally July! We've reached the middle of another year, and just a few days away is one of our favorite holidays, Independence Day! It's always a great time to celebrate, and since most of us will be lighting off crazy amounts of fireworks (or watching others do just that) we'd like to invite you to celebrate The Blooming Idea way!

 What does that mean? Well, if your having a pool party, hosting a BB-Q or just trying to stay up late enough to see the night sky light up, there is nothing that sets the atmosphere in a room better than flowers!
So give us a call and order your fourth of July flowers today!
