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! […]

We have been keeping a huge secret! We are opening a shop! The goal is for the shop to be open in March. It will be in downtown Evansville on Main Street, between 4th and 5th Street. The shop is behind Sixth and Zero and opens onto the parking lot next to the former Arazu […]

Brighten Their Day

It’s always a good time to brighten someone’s day. But now, especially so. In the last week it has really hit me that I’m missing some people. I have had a small circle the past few months and I’m missing some people in the bigger circle. Can you relate? In a time when many of […]

Fall Wedding Inspiration

It’s wedding season! Spring and fall are both busy times for weddings but fall is definitely the winner! Wedding vendors have full schedules in September, October, and November. Why fall? It’s a favorite season for many. The weather is pleasant and the colors are beautiful. If you are wanting an outdoor ceremony or reception, it […]

The beginning of a new year brings a plethora of forecasts about all subjects.  The wedding industry is no exception.  I read many of these because I am interested in what others are seeing trending in their markets and how it may apply to my own market.  There are things I also notice in talking […]

Our New Class Offerings

I am SO excited to start offering classes.  So, why classes? My background is in education.  I taught for 10 years before changing careers.  I did not leave teaching because I didn’t like doing it.  I wanted more flexibility in my schedule so that I would be able to participate in more things with my […]

A New Way to Wear Flowers

Let’s rethink the corsage and boutonniere.  They have been around for decades… centuries, maybe? But that doesn’t mean we need to continue making them the same way. I have shared many times that I now make wrist corsages on bracelet cuffs.  They are more versatile, easier to make (in my opinion), and most importantly–much more […]

A Seasonal November Wedding

I don’t hide that I prefer to use seasonal ingredients in my designs. November can be a tough month, though.  When Mary told me that she liked the muted tones of November and dried flowers, I was excited!   This was the first wedding I have been able to design with dried elements and I […]

A Colorful Lego Superhero Themed Wedding

Superheroes and legos? Sure! It is not your typical wedding design but I love doing things that are not typical.  This was SO. FUN!!! It helped that Ryan and Christi were such a great couple to work with. We started with the bold colors used in comic books. The reception was at the Old Post […]
