I cannot tell you how many times I’ve heard the phrase “Anything but Carnations” from my brides. And before I got into this business, I was just like them, thinking Carnations looked cheap and common and had pretty much zero appreciation for them. But since I started designing with flowers I have seen so many amazing Carnations… gorgeous colors and such a variety. Not only that but they are super hardy, standing up to rough handling and lack of water. Now let’s not insult them anymore. They deserve our love. When used in the right way, Carnations can look… well, expensive. Check out this gorgeous bouquet I made with some Carnations I received on my birthday to play with. Yes, giving me work is a gift ;-) Enjoy!
Hello lovers! Happy Valentine’s Day! Today I’m sharing a little secret… ever since I began designing with flowers, my husband refuses to buy me any! He says I am too critical. Probably true. Well, I don’t mind, because I shop for my own flowers and then get to “play” which is a gift in itself. This year for Valentine’s Day, I’ve chosen two flowers that were on my Design Wish List, Anemone and Parrot Tulips as well as some good old standbys, Ranunculus and Dusty Miller all arranged in a Pottery Barn vase. They are a great source for high end containers. Enjoy your love-ly day!
