'Flowers are love's truest language' . . . Park Benjamin

I began this Blog to share beautiful photos, inspirational thoughts and maybe a tidbit or two that you will want to pass onto to someone else. No one does 'pretty' better than Mother Nature .... Welcome and I hope you stop in often!

A Day in the Life of A Dreamer

My photo
PA, United States
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!

Happy Halloween!!!

Halloween is so much fun!!!!  It brings out 'the kid' in all of us and who doesn't LOVE Chocolate!!!
Well this past week has been so hectic and busy with all the prep for Trick Or Treat Night, Weddings and having friends popping in 'just to see' what I had going on . . . . I love the colors of Autumn and my own Wedding took place in October -- what is even better is my sister-in-law got married on Halloween!!!! 
I did this outdoor tablescape and wanted to incorporate all the bounty of the season, including California Grown 'Black Magic' roses from Florabundance, local grasses, berries, broom corn that I grow here at Best Buds and which every 'good' witch needs for Halloween and lots of other goodies stashed throughout this centerpiece. 
Now for the Great Pumpkin!!!  Charlie Brown would be so proud of my husband -- he grew this 87 pounder in his prize Pumpkin Patch and of course, I had to use it as a background for this gorgeous Bridal Bouquet!

Well I wish all of you a great Halloween -- May the 'Great Pumpkin' stop by your home along with all of your family and friends to celebrate this fun holiday!
Oh and one more picture . . . like I said, it brings out the KID in all of us

I had the pleasure of traveling up to Jim Thorpe, PA yesterday to deliver the designs I created for Kim & Randy's Destination Wedding. 
This little village carved out of a mountainside takes you back in time and I marveled at the sights and sounds as I waited in the line of cars and motorcycles that were 'crawling' along the road that overlooks a Gorge created by the swift moving waters of the Lehigh River. 
After making my left turn past the Train Station that was bustling with visitors boarding the cars that would take them over majestic trestles to view the changing of the leaves I encountered a vision of yesteryear as horse drawn carriages and Iron Porches adorned with well kept window boxes bursting with an assortment of flowers and foliage greeted me -- was this a dream I asked myself??? No this was Jim Thorpe in all it's glory -- it's true a visit there will definitely 'slow' you down in the best kind of way. 
 I hope you enjoy this little Photo Journal of yesterday's Event!
