Ask and you shall receive. A few of the summer flower subscribers have asked for another subscription option and I am here with good news. I will be offering weekly and bi-weekly flower subscriptions for the months of January, February, and March. The subscriptions are available to purchase by the month and also make great gifts. I will be choosing seasonal
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 perfectly and when she told me she wanted to use
Mauve is back! Those of you who remember the mauve of the '80s may be asking why but this is mauve in a new way. The warm, rosy tone mixes beautifully with fall colors and gives a more cozy feel from the blush tones we see in spring and fall. We played off the mauve and rust tones of the bridesmaid dresses from Morgan and Andrew's wedding, adding in burgundy, golden
I have big plans for this little flower farm. The 2020 season actually started last October. As the last season ended, I began working on this season. We brought in 13 truck loads of rich compost and added new landscape fabric. I made three trips to a farm about two hours from Evansville who was closing and dug, transported, and then planted 90 peonies, 25 shrubs, and 120
I organized a prom inspiration photo shoot a few weeks ago. I have been ready to post about it for awhile but I put it on hold in wake of the recent health news. I feel terrible for the high school seniors who are missing their final school dance. The bright point is that Paparazzi is organizing a city wide prom to be held at a later date. Regardless of whether or not
This past Saturday was my first wedding of 2020. I could tell this was going to be an amazing party with a band and incredible food stations. While I don't have details about the party, I can share the beautiful decor. The first time I met Annie and Matthew I could tell right away that they were an artistic couple. Annie had a vision of jewel tones and greenery. Her
I love a good year end review. It's always fun to look back and think, "That was almost a year ago?" or "That was this year? It seems so long ago!" So, here are a few fun facts, favorite creations, and insight on what is ahead for 2020. My biggest accomplishment this year is that I STARTED A FLOWER FARM!!! This falls under the category of, "I've only been doing this
I listen to a lot of podcasts. During 2018, I was listening to my favorite podcasts (SLOW Flowers, for anyone interested) and the host and designer being interviewed were talking about a series of photo shoots she had designed at the same venue but during each season to show what flowers and foliages are available during a particular time. Seasonality can change the style
I'm revisiting Abby and Stratton's July wedding today with beautiful photos from Bret and Brandie Photography. Their wedding ceremony was held outdoors at Evansville Country Club. Abby's bouquet was made up of blue delphinium and thistle, white roses and wax flower, pink spray roses and yarrow, peach hypericum, and the most perfect purple blanket flower and bee balm.
Neutral colors are always a good choice for a wedding, especially with a green backdrop from an outdoor ceremony and reception. I am excited to share these beautiful photos from Bret and Brandie Photography from Ben and Bailey's wedding this past June. If you are looking for a photographer with a light and airy style, I definitely recommend Bret and Brandie!
