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.

Christmas Wedding

Posted on: December 31st, 2012 by melanie No Comments

So what shall we do on the last day of the year? How about remembering a christmas wedding at Newcastle Golf Club last December. The bride wanted a winter wonderland wedding so that is what we did. Melody Davis at MG Davis Events and I designed the decor form table cloths to Christmas trees. We used the unusual accent color of lavender for the flowers, it blended so well with all the textures and trees.

Here is another arrangement we made for delivery to a family on Bainbridge Island. We used a birch bark tube filled with lots of seasonal greenery like holly, cedar, privet berries, pinecones and fir. Candles are perfect for a holiday table so we used three ivory candles and a wonderful selection of fresh flowers. Some of the flowers we used are peony, kale, roses, hydrangea and ranunculus. We go to the market and pick out our flowers so we area able to offer these wonderful blooms that no one else on the island has. We also offer flowers for sale or special order from Vintage Home and Gardenflowers, gift flowers, flower delivery, holiday flowers, send flowers bainbridge island in Lynwood Center.

Today we used pink and white for this Christmas arrangement. Its kind of fun to use pink since so many beautiful flowers are pink. Some of the grey/blue foliage that we use this time of year such as seeded eucalyptus and gin berries go so well with pink. The candle stick is grey as well and made from concrete. Vintage Home and Garden, a wonderful new store on Bainbridge Island, has them for sale. You can order flowers from them or call direst for a holiday delivery to Bainbridge or Poulsbo.white flowers, pink flowers, glitter pinecones, and native foliage arrangement

Here is a sweet little flower arrangement that would be perfect for a gift. Three of these flower arrangements down the middle of your table would be so pretty and festive. They are made in a small mercury glass vase that can be used as a votive holder as well as a vase. The flowers we used are all white roses, ranunculus, tulips, scented geranium and berries. Just one would make a lovely gift. We are busy in our flower shop and ready to deliver flowers to Bainbridge Island or Poulsbo.

Happy Holidays!

What a lovely surprise this would be for family or friends for the Christmas season. The flowers would be perfect for a Christmas dinner table or on a sideboard. The flowers we uses are a wonderful combination of burgundy shades and include peony, dahlia, ranunculus and a few berries. We combined all the flowers in a wintery birch bark box. The great thing about winter  arrangements is that the foliage lasts such a long time. As the flowers fade they can be taken out and replaced with new fresh blooms or the greens can be left to stand on their own. We would love to deliver this arrangement to Bainbridge Island or Poulsbo.holiday flowers, christmas flowers, christmas gift

Winter Color

Posted on: November 20th, 2012 by melanie No Comments

Winter colors, we usually think white for snow, red and green for Christmas and blue for Hanukah. But what about a little bit different color pallet? For this Winter arrangement we used a bit of lavender. The color blends so well with silver and gold, brown and green. Most of the foliages and textures in these bouquet are so sturdy that the arrangement could be fresh looking for weeks. A perfectly wonderful Christmas gift.
