Tussie Mussies and the Language of Flowers

Hello, Everyone!  I hope you are having beautiful summer weather like I am here in Massachusetts.  Before I begin to tell you about the project I worked on this week, I will admit to you that it has been an epic fail!  This has not been my best work but, because I really like the idea of this project so much, I am going to share it with you anyway :).


A Wreath for the Barn---Maybe!

Hello, all!  Hope you have been enjoying the last bits of spring as summer is quickly approaching.  It has been a hodge-podge of a week for me.  I think the long weekend (although great!) may have messed me up for getting anything really productive done.  I have been a day off---all week!  However, I did finally get a project done that I have been meaning to do for weeks.



Getting the Shed Ready for Summer and the Wedding Season

Welcome back, everyone!  Spring is a busy time for me and this week has been no exception.  I have been working in my garden trying to get it ready for the summer.  While continuing to do that, I have also been trying to get my shed ready for all the fun we will be having in there, as well as, getting it ready for a few meetings with some lovely brides.

My Red, White and Blue Garden

Hi there!  It has been a few weeks since my last post and I am not sure where the time has gone.  All I know is that is has been busy in my little life, as I am sure it has been in yours.  Lately, I have been trying to get my yard ready for the summer.  I have a few meetings coming up having to do with my floral design business and I wanted the yard to look nice.  It is hard work and I am pretty sure that is where my time has gone~


Art in Bloom at the MFA


Welcome back, everyone! 
Have you ever been to an art-in-bloom event?  Do you have any idea what I am talking about?  An art-in-bloom event is one where a piece of art, be it a painting, sculpture, sketch or any other art form, is interpreted through floral material.  Flowers and other plant materials are arranged in such a way as to offer another or mimicking perspective of the piece.

Cinco De Mayo Get Together Inspiration

I admit it.  I am fibbing a little bit on this one today.  It is the end of April in Massachusetts.  There is no way we have this much color outdoors or on our decks and patios but, Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner and this deck setting is so colorful and Cinco de Mayo-like that I just decided to go with it!

A Mixture of Rustic and Elegant: Wedding Boutonnieres and Corsages

I know everyone is getting sick of the complaining but the weather really has stunk here in the Northeast this spring...if you want to call it that!  To get my mind off of the weather and to have some fun, I decided to practice my craft and create a few photo ops at the same time :).

Most often when I am doing the flowers for my weddings everything is so rush-rush that I do not have time to stage nice photos of the flowers when they are completed.  Much care is needed to keep the flowers fresh and beautiful.  It is such a disappointment after all the work that goes into the whole process not to get lovely photos after all.  So, while the weather was simply awful, I decided to make lemonade out of lemons and played around with flowers one day and photographed them the next.  Pure bliss for a floral designer!


Out of these five floral elements (tea rose, lisianthus, rosemary, eucalyptus and waxflower) I created some boutonnieres and a couple of corsages.
