Beth and Greg

Beth is a petite lady, so we used a small hand held bouquet with white lilacs, gardenias (a favorite of hers), akito roses, and white tulips.

This arrangement was for the sign in table. It includes salal, roses, heather, and tree fern.

Valentine Flowers

One dozen red roses with seeded eucalyptus for the greenery.
Two dozen red Freedom roses that were much better than last years cardinal and bulls eye ones

Beautiful Dolce Vita roses. Their stems and foliage are just so nice to work with.

We had fewer orders this year but think it wasn't about us, but due to the economy! We are thankful for our loyal customers and even picked up a few new ones as well. Thanks fellas! Here are some pictures of the roses.

Funeral flowers for an amazing man

This was on of my most favorite projects: flowers for the funeral of Al Cheney. He was a GREAT artist who used vibrant colors in his paintings. His wife, Lindann is a great friend and fellow florist. We wanted to do both of them justice. Not that we did, but it was an honor to do the arrangements. Melissa Munsey helped a lot with this project.

Larry and Trine

Trine and Larry were married the week AFTER Valentine's, same year as Ben and Shek. Happy Anniversary to you two! Their colors were orange and hot pink. We de-thorned almost 1000 roses!

Piano arrangement

Isn't she a beautiful? Notice the bright color bouquet with the fair skinned bride? Why didn't I do that?

Else and Haans

Else and Haans were married in the month of January. Their colors were light blue and brown. Some flowers we used were light blue delphinium, light blue iris (Else's favorite), hydrangeas, akito roses, asiatic lilies, safari sunset, Schwenalder mini callas, flax, fern coil.

What a CUTE couple! Thank you Else for the pictures. It is a lot of fun getting to do flowers for your sisters. Though, it is a little crazy with the timing, trying to keep the flowers fresh, yet still be part of the party. PRICELESS!

Amanda and Rob

We were asked to do the centerpieces for Amanda and Rob's wedding. We used various cake stands for each arrangement. Their colors were coral and teal! Those are cool colors, but when you pick colors that may be hard to match flowers with, you can go with several shades around one of the colors and bring out the other color in candles/table clothes/pebbles, etc. In this case, we used several shades of orange and peach to collectively represent the coral color.

Shakirra and Ben

They were married the week before Valentine's. Happy anniversary, you two! Here's some photo's of your flowers. It was supposed to rain the day of their reception, but they must have been doing something right because the sun came out and it was a perfect 75 degree afternoon.
This was a bridesmaid bouquet with sweet peas, lizzies and sweetheart roses.
One small detail was we took the pearl pins and painted them light pink with nail polish.
Shakirra wanted a different arrangement for each table. This was one of them with stock, tulips, wax flower, ranunculus, alstromeria, and salal leaf.
Ben's bout
Shakirra was married on one day and her reception was on the next day. This was her wedding day bouquet.
Another centerpiece arrangement: roses, tree fern, vibernum, and salal.
Yet another centerpiece: bear grass, ivy, gerbs, tulips, and lizzies

Cute little girls :-) with white hydrangea pomanders. They weighed a TON!
