Funky Peacock Feather Bouquet

Yes, the funky peacock feather bouquet was ours! I write that line a bit tongue in cheek because one of our bouquets has become famous and known as the "Funky Peacock Feather" bouquet. I posted a photo almost 3 years ago onto my Flickr account and did not watermark or protect it in any way. Almost 10,000 views later that bouquet seemed to have caused the most buzz. I've seen it used so many times (mostly without credit to our shop - no worries, I'm not angry about that) in blogs and online. I thought it would be fun to show some of the other photos from that wedding. I often get asked if we really did that bouquet. Yes and here's the proof! The bride was Stephanie and the photographer was Jeff Tisman and the bride came to me very close to her October wedding date. Why? Because she was afraid that the florist would talk her out of using peacock feathers in her wedding. That was before she knew me and found out how much I love doing, not only what the bride wants, but things that are a bit different!  Let's face it, she was ahead of a very big trend, don't you think? Again, don't mind if you borrow them but credit for my shop and Photographer Jeff would be wonderful!
A great shot from above. I love her smile here.
I've actually used this shot on our wedding site on the Gallery page.
This photo really shows the texture and variety of this bouquet.
Stephanie and her girls. I loved the pop of purple in the bouquets which was also used in the floral centerpieces at the Lambertville Inn.
This is the famous shot that people email and call me about. Actually, this was just a cropped shot that originally had both the bride and groom in it. It really shows the bouquet, as it was meant to be seen - from the side.

That is too funny! I'm glad this bouquet has been so copied, it's the highest compliment I could have. I've had florists from around the world say that brides have brought it to them as inspiration. :o)
Wow! What a bouquet!! I loved this so much, I posted it to my facebook page! https://www.facebook.com/Annie.Fentz

How to Make a Flower Puppy

It's amazing what you can do with 12 carnations and a little bit of creativity. Our Floral Designer Rocio loves making puppy arrangements so here she shares her tips with you! Here's what you will need ~ 12 full size carnations, floral glue, floral tape, a floral container, 1/3 of a block of floral foam and some assorted greenery.  First take your wet floral foam and tape it securely into your floral container.  Slowly start adding the 12 carnations starting with the top to form the head, the ears, the face and the 2 front legs.   Keep going, adding carnations but only using 12 total!  Now he has his 2 front legs, sitting over the edge of the container.  Using the floral glue, add the eyes and the nose. Be creative here. We use eyes and noses for the floral industry but you can use felt, screws or even a pip cleaner to form these facial features.   Next, start filling in with assorted greenery and mosses. This will become his little bed!  Be sure to f

What is a Grave Blanket?

Never heard of a Grave Blanket? Don't worry, your probably aren't alone. Here in the north east is customary to have a lovely "blanket" made from ever greens and winter accents to be placed on the grave of a loved one.  It's just a nice remembrance during the holiday season to make the graveside look a bit more decorated and festive.  According to Ask.com   "A  Grave blankets are a type of flower design that is used to decorate graves. They are made in a variety of sizes and styles, for example, standard, cascading, traditional, and double wide. Each of these styles has a specific design and flower capacity . I chucked when I read that because we make all of our Grave Blankets custom for each customer and no two ever look exactly the same. The folks who order them from us are looking for something lush and beautiful with many holiday and winter accents like this one that has golden lotus pods, ilex winter berry, glittered pine cones, red velvet rib

Why are flowers more expensive on Valentine's Day?

Why are flowers more expensive on Valentine’s Day ? Many people are getting flowers for their loved ones for Valentine's Day, but they may wonder why the price tag on them is suddenly increased. Here are 4 reasons to help explain the reason! 1. Roses need to grow quicker It takes 14 weeks to grow a rose. If you do the math you will soon realize that there aren’t 14 weeks between Christmas and Valentine’s Day. The timescale between those two peaks isn’t big enough for the roses to grow at their natural pace. To encourage the flowers to grow, the flowers need extra heat and light which costs more money! 2 The Roses have to be cut quicker More demand for red roses equals less time to cut all the roses . This means that the flowers have to be cut in a very small window of time. To keep up with the demand growers need to invest in extra labor and overtime, which of course costs money! 3 More Roses have to be transported Because everyone wants their roses at the same ti
