What’s New? February 2022

January isn’t commonly a big month for florists. We did have one wedding this month, started our winter subscriptions, and delivered joy around the Evansville area. Behind the scenes, though… There is a lot going on! First, a recap… Kari Lynn and Lucas were able to celebrate their postponed wedding this January at City View! […]

Greenery and sparkle are perfect for a wedding just before Christmas. Marley and Max’s wedding was full of both with several types of seasonal greenery, twinkling candles, and white accents.

When a bride tells me they want to have blue in their wedding, I admit it makes me feel a little anxious. The reason being–there are hardly any blue flowers. Thistle, delphinium, and hydrangea–that’s it. If one of those flowers doesn’t fit your look, well… You are out of luck. Luckily, delphinium fit Austyn’s look […]

When Megan said she wanted colorful flowers for her early August wedding to contrast against light blue dresses, I was ready.
