Micro Weddings During Covid 19

What was supposed to be a very busy Spring 2020 wedding season turned into the season of postponements, cancellations and a few “micro weddings”. Covid couldn’t stop love for a few of my clients. I was happy to help make their intimate celebrations a little more special with flowers. And if you are planning a micro wedding, reach out. I’d be happy to help you too!

I just love this bride’s more casual wedding gown. She is saving her boho dream gown for a larger celebration with friends and I’m a bit jealous! Ha! I would have loved two celebrations and two dresses!

What do you think of the micro wedding concept?

We are so excited to have been invited back to Lululemon (Birkdale Village) for another Valentine’s Day flower pop-up shop! As we do not operate a shop, our typical clients are wedding couples. So it is super fun to get our designs in the hands of the general public for special occasions in the form of a gift! Making someone’s day… what could be better!? So join us for this rare opportunity to enjoy our designs for yourself or to brighten someone else’s day. In our pre-sale, there are many different price point options to keep it accessible to all. Shop here and then pick up your flowers on February 14, 2020 from 11:30 – 2:30 at Lululemon (Birkdale Village). If this window doesn’t work for you, email us at fleurdire@gmail.com to see if we can work out an alternative.

Kaitlin + Connor’s Succulent Wedding

Kaitlin and Connor married on a perfect Fall day in Weddington, NC at Threshold Church. Both ceremony and reception were held at the church. It is a rustic and open space with wooded views out large windows. Here’s a few cell phone pics of some of the pieces I made. Missing, are the adorable bridesmaid bouquets which were Babies Breath and Dried Lavender wrapped in burlap. Katie described her wedding style as J. Crew. She wasn’t a big flower person and so opted for mostly greenery with succulents and touches of florals around the church’s lanterns. However she went extra with her bouquet which I was thrilled to oblige! I love a big beautiful bouquet and it perfectly offset her simple gown. I used Larkspur, Campanula, Tweedia, Snapdragons, Succulents, Dusty Miller, Blueberry Branches, Eleagnus and Silver Dollar Eucalyptus. I can’t wait top see the professional pics of this wedding party by Keith + Lakyn Photography!

Time Flies!

It’s hard to believe our 2019 Wedding Season is almost coming to a close! Just 3 weddings left on the schedule! We have had the best time creating beautiful weddings and events for our clients. But 2020 will be one for the books for sure! We have some exciting installations planned and are working at many venues for the first time. Old mills seem to be a theme for us next year. We’ll be at The Providence Cotton Mill, Loray Mill and The Laboratory Mill! If you are getting married in 2020 don’t leave your florals till last minute. SO much planning goes in to what we do as floral artists.

Still waiting on film scans from this shoot but I wanted to share a cell phone preview of my latest project with Lindley Battle Photography and Marla Lawson Events at The Providence Cotton Mill while freshening up this Blog space! I used locally and organically grown Apricot Lisianthus from Copper Sky Farm, Feather Celosia and Lunaria from Blossom and Branch! That meant hand peeling each Lunaria seed pod! Definitely a labor of love but oh so worth it! I always try to source from these two local Huntersville growers when ever I can. Hope you like this little taste of Fall!

Valentine’s Day Pop-Up Shop at Lululemon Birkdale!

45693013_10156993975666155_5670127296313294848_o

I am so excited to announce, that I will once again be offering gift arrangements to the public for Valentine’s Day 2019, by way of a pop-up shop, hosted by Lululemon’s Birkdale Village location! This is a special treat both for myself, past and future clients, as I typically only work weddings. But I do enjoy the retail environment and getting to spend the day meeting new faces and most importantly creating beautiful gifts for the recipients.

Now, I will note that if you are looking for a standard dozen red roses, then the grocery store is the place to go. I will be staying true to my garden inspired esthetic and yes a little bit of flower snobbery ;-) designing mixed arrangements with luxury specialty florals. These are the kind of arrangements I personally would like to receive.

Pre-ordering is highly recommended as I will be making a limited amount of arrangements. You may do so by texting 845.742.4539 OR emailing fleurdire@gmail.com. I will then send you an invoice to pay via Square. The flowers will be available for pickup on 2/14/19 from 12pm till sell out at:

Lululemon
16836 Birkdale Commons Pkwy
Huntersville, NC 28078

If this timing does not work for you then we may be able to make other arrangements for pick up on a case by case basis.

Selections will include Medium sized mixed arrangements of Hydrangea, Garden Roses, Spray Roses, Craspedia and Greenery for $55 in your choice of a whimsical hand-painted ceramic “Celfie” pot or a chic clear glass “Prism” vase. The same mix will be available without a vase for $45 in our signature craft paper and pink tissue wrap. All will be adorned with a gold painted wooden script “love” sign. Colors will be muted soft shades of Pink and Purple with pops of Yellow. Additional designs may be available for purchase at the pop-up shop.

Pics below are of my last Lululemon pop-up shop for Mother’s Day. This sale was so much fun and we sold out! I’m looking forward to the next one! Hope to see you there!
