It was hard to say goodbye to the space where we launched our new, small business. We have built so many great relationships over our first three and a half years! We thank all of our great customers who have supported us through our growing spurts and a global pandemic, attended our Holiday Open Houses, Floral Design Workshops and Sale Events, participated in our social media giveaways and called on us to design floral arrangements for all their special moments and occasions!

Follow along with us as we continue to grow!

Recipes from October’s Floral Design Workshop

October 15, 2020, posted by Gina – We had the pleasure of hosting two Floral Design Workshops on October 13, 2020.  The theme was Pumpkins, Petals & Prosecco. In this workshop we incorporated small white pumpkins into pastel Fall arrangements.  We enjoyed refreshments before and during the workshop and want to share the recipes from our evening’s festivities with you.  Enjoy!


Recipes for Beach and Backyard Labor Day Celebrations

September 2, 2020, posted by Gina – Labor Day marks the end of summer and back to school. While many of our days are still warm, our thoughts are transitioning to crisp evenings and bright, sunny autumn days.  Over the years, autumn has become my favorite season.  I love to peruse comfort food recipes, smell the scents of fall and turn my thoughts to holiday entertaining.  Entertaining this year may present some interesting challenges, but I am more than ready to take them on!

I made this pasta salad for my family every time we were at the beach.  It became a mainstay and one that could not be omitted or else I’d find myself in trouble with the family.  It is very simple but somehow seems a like nice treat after a few hours on the beach.  The shell pasta seems right at home while at the beach. 

The following three recipes are perfect for a backyard cookout. Pork chops are sometimes overlooked as a meat for grilling, but they grill fast and taste wonderful cooked on the grill.

Shop Update

March 25, 2020, Posted by Gina – Everyone is pulling together and doing their best to make it through this trying time. We have decided to stop allowing customers to come in the shop. We take your safety and the safety of our staff seriously. 
We are still offering free delivery and curbside pickup. We will continue providing this service for as long as it is possible and safe. 
We can deliver flowers, plants and merchandise to your friends and loved ones during this difficult time. Some of you may not be able to visit a friend or loved one at the moment and we would be honored to design an arrangement that, now more than ever, communicates your love, thoughts, prayers and support. And a little reminder that beauty is all around us. 
Thank you.
