Last Week of July: Sneak Peak at the Flowers

This past week was a great LoCoFlo week! It was so full of wonderful people and events. The week started with delivering flowers to the University of Maryland Baltimore for our second week of flower-selling there. Wednesday, I made half a dozen arrangements for a fundraising breakfast for GEDCO (love them!) and Thursday I provide several arrangements to Jordan Faye Contemporary for a reception honoring artist Kate Mackinnon.


Kate’s work is so colorful and bold that Jordan wanted the flowers to be subtle. Inspired by this weekends weddings, we used white lilies, basil, mint, whit lisianthus and white statice. I especially loved these little 2x2 cubes for the cocktail tables.


Saturday we had two beautiful weddings. The first was a morning wedding at Naylor Vineyard in Pennsylvania. The bouquets and centerpieces were made primarily with herbs and splashes of white and purple flowers. Perfect for the vineyard.





On Saturday evening, we worked on a beautiful summer wedding at one of my favorite venues: Woodend Sanctuary. The bride wanted to have flowers in all shades of pink with a splash of green and lavender.  We used zinnias, lisianthus, dahlias crested celosia and phlox for the bouquets.



We added bells of Ireland, mountain mint and and plume celosia for the ceremony arrangements.




It was a really fun, challenging, creative week. Thanks to this weeks growers: Locust Point Flowers, Belvedere Farm, Bridge Farm Nursery and Talmar Gardens. Thanks too to Jen and Marina for such great design work-and Eric for driving all over PA and MD to help me deliver flowers. Looking forward to this coming week!
