Hey friends! We are going to take a little break from flowers this week and learn a little more about the skincare products I created during COVID, which are now available on my website shop.  Reducing my carbon footprint is as important to my family as it is for my business, so we started thinking […]

OK well I’m not going to lie, this is not what I thought the end of 10 years of business would look like.  I’m sure many of you are saying the same sorts of things about the past 18 months! When I started my company in 2011, I didn’t have much of a direction in […]

Recently, I’ve been talking with a lot of my colleagues about what their business will look like next year (you know, when maybe, possibly, weddings might be happening, and we might be kind of sort of, “back to normal”).  Some have changed their business plan.  Some have closed.  Some are trying to stay afloat and […]

A year ago, my fiance and I decided to elope to our favorite place on earth with just a small group of family and friends.  Little did we know, a year later, the whole world would be considering doing exactly the same thing.  Without a large wedding to plan (and pay for), we were able […]

So you’ve had to downsize your wedding….. I know, it sounds awful.  Let’s chat elopements and micro weddings. You’ve made all these plans, it’s been building up in your head, and all of a sudden, you’re being told, it’s not safe to have that many people all together, and/or many of your guests are not […]

So you have seen all the behind-the-scene pics from my amazing trip to Vermont this fall.  Here is the culmination of all our hard work – a foam free, completely American Grown fall-inspired wedding arch, with matching bouquet and boutonniere.  Honestly, I think this is some of my favorite work….but as you know, I say […]

When Britt got in touch with me, she had a super creative and unique vision for her wedding.  She said she wanted a luxurious party in a venue that felt like it had been there forever.  She wanted rich burgundy and dusty pink tones with wispy, ethereal greenery and natural earthy textures and she wanted […]
