Valentines Day Flowers

Posted on: January 12th, 2015 by melanie No Comments

Valentines Day is one of those holidays that has its own day, not the first or second Monday of the month But its very own day. Every year on February 14 we send bits of pink or red, just what we need on these grey days. Cards and chocolate and flowers go to those we love or just like to help make them feel cherished, thought of, important, to help make them smile. Our favorite color for Valentines Day is pink but we will do red with pleasure or white or purple too. Just a few of our special flowers artfully arranged and delivered to special people in your life is so appreciated by the recipient.

Here are some of our beautiful flower arrangements, but really we love to create any arrangement your heart desires. Our delivery is always free, complementary, no charge to any address on Bainbridge Island.valentines day arrangement 025this is a sweet way to think of someone this February 14, primroses, spring blooming plant in a wood box

Winter Flowers

Posted on: December 19th, 2014 by melanie No Comments

If you look out your window its hard to see any flowers in bloom, but there are so many wonderful textures to be found right in you own garden, or maybe your neighbors. In this wintery arrangement we used a birch box and filled it with greenery from our garden; fir, cedar, boxwood, ivy and hellebore foliage. There was so much more to find like holy, lichen branches, redwood, pieris, two kinds of huckleberry and many other wonderful greens and textures. Especially in winter its easy to use fewer flowers and give each bloom some space to contrast with all the interesting greens and textures available in winter. Monochromatic is always a great choice for a flower arrangement making a restful and interesting bouquet. Since we used all white flowers we were able to use many different floral varieties without the arrangement becoming  fussy. Using just a few of each bloom we chose were mini green hydrangeas, hellebore, spray roses, freesia, mini carnation, amaryllis, football mums and roses.

Winter Flowers

During the winter so many of our favorite flowers are unavailable or so expensive we have to use the with care. So we look around at what nature has to offer during the season and so many things come to mind. Boxwood, cedar, fir, holly, mossy branches create a base of much loved texture for our precious blooms.

For this  floral display we startled with a sweet mercury glass votive holder and filled it with privet berries, bay leaves, scented geranium, seeded eucalyptus and pieris japonica. That is five different textures in one small vase. Of course we needed flowers to finish it off with a few stems of the very special ranunculus and a smattering of spray roses.

A birch bark tube is filled to overflowing with wintery textures, pine, fir, cones, privet berries, boxwood and pieris buds are a good start for the base of the unusual arrangement. To add some color we used mini green hydrangeas, white ranunculus, stargazer lilies, kale, roses, and peonies. We used candles hoping the recipient would light them for additional Christmas sparkle.

Mothers Day Flowers

Posted on: May 5th, 2014 by melanie No Comments

May is the best time for flowers. Everything is blooming like crazy, not being stressed from the heat or to chilled from the cold. The abundance we have to chose from in the Seattle area is almost greedy after the dormancy of winter. Bainbridge Island is now in full bloom and I can go out to my garden and pick armloads of blossoms like  lilac, tulips, snowball or bleeding heart. These sweet arrangements we made today are a perfect mix of local Bainbridge Island blooms combined with fresh flowers from California. I know my mom would like the yellow flowers the best and if she was still with me I would make her something just as sunny for Mothers Day.If you need some beautiful flowers delivered to your mom this Mothers Day we would love to make them for you.

MOTHERS DAY

Posted on: May 3rd, 2013 by melanie No Comments

Today and most days I think about my mom. She is not with us anymore and I miss her. But her spirit will never die she had  too much personality. She loved people and had embarrassing ways of saying things we called myraisms. Generous, glamorous, red head then blond, she kept in touch with old friends and family. I love to garden because of her and because I love to garden I love flowers. I made some flower arrangements with my mom in mind, here are a few.

Spring Planters

Posted on: April 1st, 2013 by melanie No Comments

Right now any excuse to go to the nursery is fine with me. There are so many crazy flowers blooming right now it is hard to choose. We like to gather a few combinations of unusual bulbs and some different primroses and plant them in tins or boxes or maybe ceramic. They are perfectly fine outside but do well inside too.

Super sweet and super inexpensive, a box of primroses and a bit of pussy willow is just right.

Super Cute DIY Centerpeices

Posted on: March 12th, 2013 by melanie No Comments

How about this for a super cute, super easy DIY project for your wedding. Leave the bottles in the pack for round tables or line them up for a long table. The pretty pink ranunculus are fairly expensive in the summer so try dahlias instead. Dahlias come in wonderful colors and have fun buds that should be incorporated into the arrangements. Get started early by collecting and painting your bottles. Dont wait until the night before to arrange your flowers, they will last a few days in the vases, just remove any wilted flowers as you set them on the tables.

Ranunculus cost plenty

How much do flowers cost?

I love Peonies and I am getting married in September. My budget is really small and I want garden roses for my wedding.

What floral designer hasn’t heard these statements and sighed. Lots of flowers are available all year but like peonies in September the quality is questionable. They are not the fluffy to die for peonies that are around in June. They are also not the same price. I am going to offer you a photo of ranunculus that I took in my studio today. The blooms range from the size of a thumbnail to that of a half dollar.

So how much are these beauties, get ready for a shock! What you are looking at is $140 worth of ranunculus, wholesale. Seriously that is what I paid at the local wholesale florist. Wow!!
