Thanksgiving Offerings

"The Autumn Explosion"
 (Pardon my naming, it is really hard to come up with good names for floral designs...) 

Followed by:
"A Peachy Autumn Palette"

And lastly...
"An Apple a Day..."

We will be creating a limited number of each of these arrangements for pick-up or delivery on November 21st and 22nd, for Thanksgiving. Pre-order now so that we don't sell out of your favorite! You can place your order here, or email ( to arrange for a custom design.

From a few weeks back....

I love it when a flower surprises me. I am not usually a huge fan of standard roses, or purple roses, but these lavender 'Ocean Song' roses from Peterkort really took me by surprise. They just went perfectly with this palette of creamy, mauvish purples, bright white, and teal.
These were the subscription arrangements from a few weeks ago, created with an abundance of gorgeous flowers from Washington and Oregon growers selling at the Seattle Wholesale Growers Market, and some from the Botanique Cutting Garden too!

Talia's Bouquet

This is my dear friend Talia, holding her bouquet from her wedding to her beloved Justin in late September. More photos to come, but I wanted to share this shot now, because, well, I really love it! Their wedding was so beautiful, and any chance to re-live beauty (especially beauty in the form of two close friends getting married combined with flowers) is good by me.

Many thanks to the ever talented Kari Champoux for the photo!

Crab Apples, Sunflowers, golden yellow Rudbeckia, Rosemary, sweet smelling Stock.... it's harvest time, and leaves, fruit, and berries are starting to fall to the ground.
My subscribers this week received a little cluster of Crab Apples along with their arrangement. For those wondering what, exactly, is the plan for this cluster of fruit, I hope this next photo will illustrate:
I love placing a few pieces of fruit on the table below an arrangement with fruiting branches in it.... like the fruit has fallen, and landed right there on it's own.
