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!

Can you believe we are almost through April!!!!! Yikes -- time does fly when you are having fun!!!
I have been richly blessed with another busy season of Bridal Consultations and Bookings for 2010. I love meeting people and helping them plan their 'Picture Perfect Day'.
Whenever I do a consultation, I like to get information ahead of time about colors, likes/dislikes, etc. so I can order in a selection of magnificent flowers for everyone to touch, smell and enjoy. It's like 'Show & Tell' - I don't know who has more fun!!!!
It brings a smile to my face and 'sunshine' in my heart when I bring out a cooler bucket of these blooms and my potential bride comments that she will take the 'bucket' just the way it is!!! I have always said, flowers do all the work -- I just help them out now and then -- tee hee!!!
Today, Jeff Leatham reinforced that statement -- He was a guest on Oprah Winfrey's Show featuring 'Dream Jobs' and he spoke about how he entered the world of Floral Designer -- He needed a job! He is a premier Floral Designer who didn't know he was a floral designer -- he had a friend who gave him a chance at the Four Seasons Hotel to try his hand at floral design - he took the flowers and let them do the work!!! Today he made Hydrangea Clouds for Oprah -- absolutely awesome and breathtaking!!!
Bring some 'Clouds' & 'Sunshine' into your day -- find your Passion and make it work for you!!! Remember - Celebrate Life With Flowers!

There is nothing better than getting up at the crack of dawn, pouring that hot cup of coffee and stepping out onto the porch to watch the sun rise. This morning the Garden beckoned me to grab my camera and share a few of Life's little Miracles with all of you! So pour your favorite beverage, sit back and enjoy the power of these little flowers! Remember to always Celebrate Life With Flowers!

It's Finally HERE!!!! SPRING HAS SPRUNG!!!
OK, I will try to control my excitement -- but I really have a bad case of Spring Fever. Seriously, this past week of warm weather has caused me to see myself 'coming and going'!!
I have a list that is as wide as the Grand Canyon of everything I WANT to do!
Now that does not mean there are enough hours in the day to do them but I sure try to push the envelope!
Those of you who know me or have been a client of mine are sure to attest to the fact that I am an avid gardener.
Seed Catalogs to me are better than reading any Best Seller!!!
I think my Dad planted the 'seed' of gardening in me when I was a little girl following him like a 'puppy' in our backyard, begging to 'let me help' put the seeds in the ground!
He had a special way to plant everything -- for instance, bean seeds
Ahhh, ' The Lesson of the Bean!'
That is a whole other posting!!!
But if you have not noticed, the bulbs are popping everywhere, the trees are blooming and the perfume of Spring is everywhere!
With Spring -- comes Romance -- that's right -- Love is in the Air!!!
Just watch the birds, the bunnies and the bees!!!
They are all doing the Love Dance!!!
I was intrigued by a pair of Doves at my Bird Feeder -- what a show they were putting on!
Strutting their stuff all around the feeder and birdbath -- too funny!
The Nests are going up like wildfire in our woods (no economic slow down here!)-- the birds are picking apart my porch displays just to get a 'rare' Best Buds' trinket to feather their nests!
So don't let the birds get ahead of you -- dress up that front door of yours with one of my Signature Wreaths
That's right, Best Buds is more than Weddings and Special Events!
My wreaths are ONE OF A KIND!!!
And not only the birds will be cursious about your new wreath, your friends and neighbors will all want to know 'where did you get that beauty?''
Afraid that the birds will try to fly away with your new addition -- don't fret, Best Buds' Wreaths look GREAT anywhere in your home!!!
I will customize your wreath to suit your tastes and colors -- yes, they have to be ordered but believe me they are worth the small wait you will have as I custom create them for YOU!!!
So, remember -- get outdoors
Smell the Flowers!
Watch Mother Nature perform her Magic
And 'Spring' the Good Earth Back to Life!
Celebrate With Flowers
Thanks for Following My Blog!!!!
