'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!

December Peonies

Trying to make 'dreams come true' are one of the best parts of creating Wedding Flowers!!! Earlier this month I had the request from one of my brides for Peonies in her Winter Bouquet. The photo she had seen was in a Spring/Summer issue of a Bridal Magazine but these were her favorite flowers and they just had to be a part of her special day!!!

I knew the moment that I received the shipment of Peonies from Kennicott Brothers that these Hot Pink 'Felix' Peonies were going to be PERFECT!!!

Someone once said that 'the eyes are the portals of the soul' -- as soon as I walked into the room to present this bouquet to my bride I saw the sparkle of glee in her eyes and once again simple flowers worked their 'magic' to write another happily ever after to this Love Story!

The Legend of the Christmas Rose

Legend has it that there was a poor little shepherdess named Madelon who came to see the baby Jesus. She watched as the Magi presented their royal gifts and began to cry because she had nothing of worth to give to Jesus. One of the Angels saw her tears falling into the snow. The Angel put her arm around Madelon and stooped down to gently brush the snow aside where Madelon's tears had fallen and to Madelon's amazement there were the most beautiful Pink tipped Christmas Roses! Madelon gathered them up and now had the PERFECT give for the Christ Child!
Wishing all of you the magic and blessings of Christmas!
