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!

2012 Color Trends
Are you planning a Wedding or Special Event in 2012? Do you follow Fashion Color Trends? Well if the answer to each of these questions is yes . . then you may want to pay attention to Pantone's color choice for 2012 . . . 'Tangerine Tango'!
I love the name 'Tangerine Tango' . . . if any of you go to 'Zumba' classes . . well you may just want to stand up and start moving to the spicy beat of this hot color.
Now most of us associate shades of orange with Fall Events ... but this year I'm telling you that you are going to see this mood elevating color making it's appearance sooner than later in floral designs. Why you ask? Well, because it pairs beautifully with pinks, reds, purple and will bring that 'champagne pop' to the common colors you are accustomed to seeing during the February Valentine Season!
Still not sold on 'Tangerine Tango' . . . well stayed tuned for more updates and photos because 'Tangerine Tango' is going to sizzle!
