Do you want to become a "Plant Parent"?

  You've most likely heard the term   Plant   Parent. It just means that you take care of a plant and that you love it! Since Covid has locked many in their homes and kept them away from the office and other "indoor" space, folks have been loving becoming plant parents. Aside from the fact that living with   plants   in the home is healthy for you (they help to clean the air), taking care of a plant gives you something to look forward to. You watch your plant grown and thrive and you can take great pride by saying - "I did that"!  You might be surprised to find out that many men love picking out and receiving as  plants  as gifts. Our designer Alicia, who is an avid plant collector and since moving in with her boyfriend Erik, he's become a plant lover too. If Erik says it's ok to bring home another plant - she doesn't wait to be told twice. Our design Alanna loves decorating the patio of her apartment with beautiful green plants and her boyfriend K

Elopement Flowers, Every Bride Needs a Bouquet

  Elopement Flowers, Every Bride Needs a Bouquet ~ One of the most gratifying things to come out of the pandemic is all the e lopement  flowers we have been creating. With many couples deciding to get married right away and not wait, it's been our pleasure to create some gorgeous last minute  wedding  flowers. Some couples are getting married at their own homes while others are going to the court house. Isn't that romantic? We love it!! This  bouquet  was created this pasts weekend and the bride asked for mostly white and green to be accented with touches of blush/pastels. We used a combination of tea and spray roses, mini calla lilies, locally grown gomphrena, cut succulent plants, eucalytpus and  touches of sweet baby's breath. So soft and romantic.  One of our favorites was from a couple of weeks ago. We created a hand tied bouquet of all pink and peach flowers and pops of blue with no added greenery added.

Late August Wedding Bouquet During a Pandemic

Today's bridal bouquet ~ I love all the bouquets we do but this one is the closest to what I would have for myself, if I was getting married for the first time (again). After my own wedding almost 35 years ago and a vow renewal 25 years ago - sadly, I can't justify another wedding for myself and Kevin but it's always a wonderful part of my job to road test the bridal bouquets. This bouquet is created with white and pale pink roses, stephanotis (jasmine), gold tinted seeded eucalyptus, silver dollar eucalyptus and pops of purple limonium.

Planning Your Intimate Wedding During Covid-19

Intimate Weddings During Covid-19 ~ What a mess this year has been for couples trying to have a beautiful wedding here in New Jersey. Even my own cousin was affected, changing their date twice and moving locations to accommodate an outdoor setting. Most, if not all our  weddings  for 2020 have been either postponed to 2021 or are being downsized. A few are holding smaller  intimate weddings  for family and friends in their back yards and next year will hold the larger receptions with a vow renewal for family and friends. Here in NJ, we are allowed outdoor events with up to 250 guests but most of our weddings are seem to be less than 100 people. Social distancing and masks will be the norm with couples providing both sanitizer and mask. A few of our brides have even asked for a for floral arrangement for the Mask Table. Who thought that we would need that? Yikes!!  If you are having to have your wedding during this time, we do have a few suggestions for you.  Don't skimp on your  br
