'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!

A Perfect 'Blue Mountain' Wedding!

Last Saturday was a chapter out of 'Winnie the Pooh & The Blustery Day' because the winds were gusting at about 30 to 40 mph but that didn't stop Missy & Mike from having the Wedding of their Dreams. I had the pleasure of working with them and was thrilled when they selected Best Buds as their Floral Designer.

Fall is one of my favorite times of year and I love the majestic display of color provided by Mother Nature . . so much 'eye candy' to look at and take in and I didn't even mind hanging from the ladder and blowing in the wind as we zip tied down the 'Liquid Amber' branches on the arbor -- thank goodness for Yoga classes to provide me with balance!!

These photos are compliments of Sabotta Imagery & Photography and were taken by Jeffrey and his team of Photo Artists at the newly renovated Blue Mountain Ski Resort in Palmerton, PA. The panoramic views are captured by these talented professionals and I want to personally thank Jeff for allowing me to share his work with all of you . . I hope you enjoy Missy & Mike's Story!
