Floral design isn’t just an art. I believe it’s a natural form of soul therapy, and here’s why.
Have you ever received a bouquet of flowers (perhaps for your birthday or for no reason at all) and it just made you feel incredibly special? For a moment you’re taken aback, a huge smile crosses your lips and a rush of happiness surges through you.
It’s the emotion flowers bring to our lives that draws me to their power and beauty. Somehow, when I look at a symphony of daisies, hydrangea, ranunculus, lilies, roses, baby’s breath and eucalyptus, the world around me becomes silent and I fall into my happy place.
Flowers are powerful that way and I’ve made it my mission to learn them, understand them, and share that power with everyone I meet, which is why I’m venturing into floral design for weddings, special occasions, and just because!
Introducing Floral Design
I went to the flower market last Friday, walked into their cooler, and gazed around until I found a flower that spoke to me. This flower would be my leading lady and I found other blooms and greens that would work well together. I got them all home, prepped them and let them drink overnight. The next day I laid a grouping of stems out and started to work some floral design magic (well, that’s what I like to call it LOL).
The result? I invite you to see for yourself…
After making 1 bridal bouquet, 5 different bridesmaids bouquets, and a topiary centerpiece (the buds are still closed so that pic will come later on Instagram) I really wished I had a wedding to deliver these to. I would have loved to see the smile on the face of the bride and her bridesmaids.
Are you getting married in 2017 or beyond? Looking for a floral designer to bring the emotion of your wedding day to life? Give me a shout! I’d love to create something unique for you to cherish.
