FULL SERVICE FLORAL DESIGN
From pillows of ruffly peonies, billows of garden roses and onto rambling vines, we create pieces inspired by the garden and nature itself. We love to source blooms locally and mix them with flowers from around the globe to create an air of effortless elegance for you special occassion.
EVENT DESIGN & CREATIVE DIRECTION
Imagine florals dripping from a crystal chandelier or the soft velvet of luxury linens set beneath each dinner plate. Beyond florals, there there are so many design options that set the tone for your celebration. Let us set the stage and design the wedding day you've always dreamed of.
A LA CARTE FLORAL DESIGN
For those who have a plan in place and all the details covered, we offer a la carte options for elopements, photography projects, and other small floral needs, still full of lush blooms in our signature organic style.
Whether described as lush, organic or elegant, flowers should be allowed to roam free, rambling on in your hands the same way as they grow in the garden. They have a life of their own and shouldn’t be forced to conform but rather add their own quirks and charm into each arrangement, allowing their little personalities to shine. A blemish is only a fault if we declare it as such. That speckle on your rose or bite out of your wild leaf might just represent a caterpillar’s afternoon snack. Nature is all around us working in magnificently harmonious ways.
Down a dusty old road, past a ditch full of cattails and up a long gravel driveway, that's where my flowering journey began. Childhood memories filled with planting seeds, gathering wild flowers and exploring barefoot in the yard until the grass became too crunchy from the summer's unyielding heat, keep me inspired today.
Nature is my constant muse. From color palettes, to textures and beyond, I'm constantly inspired by my surroundings. I love simplicity and romance, and seek to add it to all of my events.
When I'm not creating, you'll find me wandering the shores of Lake Michigan, scouring antique stores for vintage treasures or spending time in the comfort of our country home, with my husband and our two little girls.
We recently relocated to picturesque Harbor Springs and are excited to officially call Northern Michigan home.
