'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

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!

A Special Wedding!

Being in the Wedding & Special Events end of the Flower Business may give some the idea that you may not have 'regular repeat customers' and of course, you don't want to be doing Wedding Flowers every so many years because of failed relationships . . that would just be a sad state of affairs.
But, this past weekend I had the pleasure and honor of creating designs for Ashley and Aaron's Wedding that took place at the very beautiful & scenic Penn's Peak in Jim Thorpe, PA. Ashley is the younger sister of Christina whose Wedding I also had the privilege to design for a few years ago.

We met back in January for Ashley's Wedding Consultation and it was so much fun seeing Christina, Ashley, & their Mom, Mary again and to meet Domenica, Aaron's Mom. Working with this great group of ladies planning, creating and then finally seeing the smiles when I walked through the door with their designs was such a special moment and it just reaffirmed why I do what I do . . . it's not just about the beautiful flowers that I get to work with but to see the effects that flowers have on people, to meet such a wonderful group of ladies and to have the floral designs created just for Ashley be a part of their memories for a lifetime!

Congratulations Ashley & Aaron . . . and thank you for allowing Best Buds to be a part of your special day!
