Todays Feature Arrangement

Look at this super cute summer mini arrangement we made for an anniversary today!!

We helped a romantic husband by delivering these to the restaurant he will be taking her to sweet!!

We used soft orange tulips, bright baby pink spray roses, green fujis, purple veronica, and a lime green wire detail to hold it all together in a simple 4 x 4 glass cube vase.

I know she is just going to love it!!

Simple Church Dinner

We used bright yellow tissue paper and bright yellow tulips carefully tucked into bright blue gift bags to accent the theme for this church dinner. The arrangements were simple, but with just a few strong bold colors, they really make an impact.

Here are some sweet and simple cube centerpieces we did for a wedding dinner.
The bride found a picture in a magazine of a similar arrangement
and we re-created it to fit her budget.

It was wonderful to take simple elements and create something so sweet.
A perfect February arrangement!

Glass Projects

So, I have been seeing all over craft blogs these past few months how to make your own hurricanes to use as candle holders, vases, and holiday decor. Some of them have been so absolutely adorable, that I just had to try them myself and see if they were as easy as all these cute crafters claim to be.

I picked up some glass "odds-and ends."

I glued a flower to a base and came up with these cute little stands. I can't wait to set
candles on them, candies, soap,
or I'm toying with even using it as a place to set my jewelry....endless ideas!!

Here is a close up!
The hurricanes in the top picture were just as simple!
I just glued the two pieces together, VOILA!
I can't wait to float flowers or candles in them,
holiday candies,
or use them as vases in a wedding for one of my brides!

If you would like specific information on how to make these,
OR come take a class and make these along with an incredible flower design project,
please feel free to contact us at 828.326.7100.

Spring Classes

We are so excited to be working on our new class list for the spring. We have received several requests for specific projects for our flower classes. We are working on our schedule and will have it posted hopefully soon.

So, if you are like me, and get a little bit down on these cold rainy days, give us a call to book a flower class. Scientists have proven that being around even one live flower will lift your mood, boost your spirit, and makes you feel more productive.

Who wouldn't want that?!!

DIY Wedding Flowers

  1. Keep it Simple: The last thing a bride needs, is to be worrying about wiring and taping flowers on her wedding day. Pick arrangements that create an impact, but require minimal labor and preparation time.
  2. Be Organized: Make sure before you begin you have all of the materials and supplies you need. Check your vases carefully to make sure they are clean and any price tags have been removed. Create a plan for transporting your arrangements to and from your venue.
  3. Classic Flowers: Pick flowers that are easy to acquire and even easier to work with. Roses and lilies are often times good choices.
  4. Practice, Practice, Practice! The morning of your wedding is no time to be experimenting with new flower designs.
  5. Have FUN!

Wedding Show

The wedding show at the Mosteller Mansion was so much fun!
A big thanks to all those who worked so hard to make it so special.
I personally met so many wonderful vendors that were really kind and generous. I look forward to working with them in the future to help create
truly wonderful and unique weddings here in Hickory.
