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!

Capturing a Couple's Vision
Laura wanted to use decorative Mason Canning Jars but asked me to 'dress them up' so they would be fit for their wedding!
I came up with this design which brought such smiles to their faces this past Friday and made me feel that indeed I had captured their vision. As I told Christian who was present when I was setting up their venue . . I wanted to give them a garden, so my idea was to use the 'Green Trick' Dianthus as a base over the jar to create the illusion of a lush carpet of grass from which the yellow 'Enjoy' Gerberas grown by Rosa Flora in Canada sprung forth surrounded by the 'dancing' Bupleurum and to add the magic of 'Faerie Dust' I spun Oasis Copper Deco wire in the jar and sprinkled a 'kiss' of Oasis Copper Angel Hair Wire on the Dianthus . . This is what I like to bring to my designs in order to make them so personal and unique. Their venue came alive in the glow of these centerpieces that matched perfectly with the napkins!!! Thanks Laura and Christian for allowing me to have the privilege to create something special for your Wedding Day!
