Starfish Details

Living in Florida, in almost every event, we try to infuse a little Florida style. We love to do starfish accents.

Just World Fundraiser

In January, I had the pleasure of working with Just World to provide their centerpieces for a fundraising event they held at a horse farm in Wellington. The pictures are taken by my personal camera, so forgive me for the quality. I just want to share with you these neat ideas we did. The theme of the party was Roaring 20's.

One thing I can for sure tell you is that organization is the key to having a flawless event. Organization starts at the smallest item too. We just reorganized our entire warehouse and we had bins and bins full of ribbons. It was a pain and an overall waste of time to dig through the bins to find the one ribbon we were looking for. So we used an idea we found on Pinterest and it is working out fabulously! If you have a stockpile of ribbon like we do, I suggest this. We have about 5 bins organized like this by color.

Website I Love

I know most of you have already heard about a website called "Pinterest". But in case you haven't, we just have to share it with you. This website allows you to create a "board" with pictures that you like for your wedding or event. I use it all the time when starting consultations for events. The client tells me their style or theme for their event, then I will do research for them and create a board full of images I think fits their description. It's a wonderful tool for you all to show your wedding/event vendors what your ideas are. It helps get a picture in our minds and that will help us to create an unforgettable event for you! You need an invitation to join Pinterest. If you need one, please leave a comment on this post with your email address and we will invite you.

Product I love

Another product that I use constantly is called Floralife's Leaf Shine. When leaves are looking dull in you flower arrangements, just spray a little leaf shine on them to make them look naturally clean and lush. This product does not leave the foliage oily at all! I use the spray on orchid leaves when I make an arrangement. Additionally, this product is great for homemade foliage arrangements. Go into your back yard and cut some of your green foliage - such as mini palm fronds, Monstera leaves, Crotons, Seagrapes, etc  and spray them with leaf shine then place them in a large vase with water and a little bleach and ta da! you have yourself a little tropical arrangement.

So question is - do you buy your own vases or rent them from the floral designer?

From a florist's opinion, please do not buy your own vases. You will pay less renting them from us then you will buying them. We also know what works better with the flowers you want. There is also another issue of giving the florist the vases as well as what to do with the vases after the reception has concluded. We always want what is easiest for you on your wedding or event day!

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter! I hope you have a relaxing day with friends and family. 

The origin of the White Easter Lily, properly known as the Bermuda Lily or lilium longiflorum, can be traced initially to Bermuda and subsequently to the Ryukyu Islands south of Japan. The flower was discovered in 1777 in Bermuda and then widely produced in England and Bermuda until 1898, after a virus destroyed the crops. According to Leonard Perry, a professor at the University of Vermont, growers then moved the plant to Japan.
Their entrance into the United States began with the action of a World War I soldier, Louis Houghton, who was enamored with the beauty of the snow white, pure lily and subsequently brought a suitcase full of hybrid lily bulbs to the west coast of the United States, in Oregon in 1919.
Houghton had numerous friends and neighbors involved with horticulture and he freely distributed the bulbs to them. Large scale production followed and today, the entire Pacific (west) coast of the United States from California to Oregon is known as the ‘Easter Lily Capitol of the World’.

Products I love: Crowning Glory

Another product that I use to help keep my flowers looking fresh is Crowning Glory. This product helps seal in moisture when sprayed on blooms and keeps them from blowing open too much. It's great to spray on bridal bouquets to keep them looking fresh! Just be aware to not spray it on unopened roses, because it may prevent the roses from opening.
