Hello, welcome. If you don't know me already, my heart beats for authenticity. I want to share life with others! I want to know what's on your heart and be a friend. In return, I'll tell you what's on mine and offer beauty (in whatever form that comes in my day - sometimes that's flowers, sometimes it's fashion, sometimes coffee, sometimes heart issues). That's what this blog is about and I cherish each one of you who are apart of it!
Today, I'd like to introduce myself as a florist. I am establishing myself in a new city and just felt that I should make the distinction. I am a farmer/ florist to be exact. I grow the flowers that I use in designs, 90% of them from seed, and supplement them for weddings and events! I create, natural, free-flowing designs imitating what you would see in the wild with a bit of artistic flair. I would say that my handprint would be a very simple, fresh, feminine and happy touch. I love pink - if you do too, then I'm your girl! - but I also love a deep romantic wine, all the colors of fall and anything white and green. As a farmer florist, I strive to create artistic displays for your weddings or events that reflect who you are and steal the show!
If you would like to discuss working together on a wedding or event please contact me through my contact page. I work out of Bridgeport, WV am originally from Dundee, Ohio and am willing to travel.
This Week: Each week I construct a new bouquet from whatever is flourishing in my garden and share it on Instagram, sometimes picking a single flower as inspiration. Below, I'll share with you the process...
Mid-summer my garden is flourishing, just getting to my favorite stage! Every morning I peak out and think that it gets better and better each time! I had wonderful ingredients to work with this week, inspired by my first Dinnerplate Dahlia! (It's hard to see but this dahlia is 8-1/2 inches wide!)
I decided to do a natural white and green arrangement with touches of soft pink and yellow.
INGREDIENTS: Dinnerplate Dahlia (ivory), Double Cosmos (Snowball white), Nicotiana (Flowering Tobacco), white Tea Roses, willow branches, foraged greens, eucalyptus, burnt orange Amaranth, Chantilly Snapdragon, Zinderella Zinnia, Double Petunia.
