what we’ve been up to

White Rose Boutonnieres

You know… besides blogging.

December is usually the biggest month of the year for us. Between Hanukkah, Christmas, event and party florals, and all the fun “boss stuff” that comes with wrapping up the end of the year, we stay pretty busy around our little flower shop. This year, on top of all the usual hustle-and-bustle, I booked five December weddings to add to the holiday cheer. Fa-la-la-la-la! 


Weddings are my favorite thing. I love having the opportunity to play a little part in someone’s big day. When a bride says, “I choose you,” I get all Sally Field emotional and want to make everything absolutely perfect for her. Because it’s a major big deal, right? She’s going to look at her wedding photos for the rest of her life, and the bouquet will be front-and-center. No pressure… ;-)


Last weekend, I designed the flowers for a childhood friend’s wintry wedding. I didn’t snap photos of her bouquet (two dozen velvety red roses hand-tied in white satin, so yummy) but I did get a few shots of her centerpieces. She and her sweet — and clearly patient — new husband spent who-knows-how-long unwrapping hundreds (thousands?) of peppermints to fill 8 cylinder vases for their reception, which I topped with bushels of red roses and wintry greenery.

Cute, right?!

This weekend we’re switching gears for a vintage-inspired lakefront wedding with lots of pastels and burlap. More to come on that one.

I love my job.

  1. Those are the prettiest centerpieces I have ever seen!!! I love the idea of the peppermints! How clever. It makes me want to go and redo my wedding – instead of June I’d pick January, I think. =)
