The change of Seasons is one of my most favorite things about being located in the Lehigh Valley Area of Pennsylvania!
So right after Valentine's Day I begin to 'think Spring' and start my displays of whimsy and flowers to depict the current Season!!! Best Buds is a non-retail shop -- we are a Garden Floral Studio -- but that does not stop the designer in me from going full steam ahead with displays. I could not resist sharing this photo with all of you from a display that 'points' clients in the right direction when they come for their appointments -- this morning it was covered in soft fluffy snowflakes that seemed to tickle the rabbits' noses and make them smile. It was too good to pass up so the 'shutter bug' in me took a wee sampling of pictures and I hope you like this one!!!
We are coming to the end of February and March is knocking at the door -- this is a wonderful time to meet with your floral designer to discuss your Wedding Plans. The best advice I can offer to clients is to have your color scheme when you meet with your designer. Attire is important but color is what is happening when you step into the world of Flowers! The American Institute of Floral Designers is currently offering a Color Study Program on-line hosted by one of the uBloom experts, Leanne Kesler. It's a great refresher because Color Study is basic when you begin a Floral Design Program. You can never 'know enough' about trends and color. My goal is make sure 'I learn something new each day' and if I can share that with someone then it was worthwhile!!! So for today, let's enjoy the 'White' of the Snow and start planning for the Bright Spring Colors that will soon be popping up all around us!!!
A Day in the Life of A Dreamer

- I have always been a 'dreamer' and I think that is the most important quality a person can have in order to be creative. It allows me to view things from all sorts of angles. Whenever I would design for a wedding/special event I made myself 'think like a photographer' and in my mind's eye I wanted to be able to showcase various colors, elements & textures. At the end of 2012 I closed the doors to my Floral Studio and began pursuing new horizons. Flowers and plants have been a part of my life since I was a child and helped my Dad in the garden. Seeds have always fascinated me and one day I will share my 'Lesson Of the Bean' story with you! My other passion is creating beautiful food to share with family and friends -- I have always said that food and flowers go together. For now, I would like this Blog to be a collection of Pretty things that this Dreamer would like to share with all of you!
