Scenes from a May Farm Wedding

The sun is shining and we have finished setting up another Farm Wedding in Hopewell so we had to share a few of the unique elements that both we and the bridal family created! Below is a pretty close up of Bride Brittany's Bridal Bouquets (say that 10 times fast). Created using cut succulent plants, cream stock, lavender spray roses, queen anne's lace, purple waxflower and a very pale lavender hydrangea.  The driveway leading to the farm is long so we placed hanging mason jars of flowers lining  ~ these even have a light in the bottom to glow as guests leave in the evening!   The family really got creative and hung a few ladders from the garage ceiling with lanterns! This must have looked amazing when the light came down!  Here's something fun! The farm ordered a few bales of hay that were 4 feet tall and we created huge letters made from fresh moss in honor of the bride and groom! After the wedding, the hay will feed to horses!  Once inside under the tent the farm tables…

A Weekend of Communion Parties!

Sadly we only have 2 cameras at the shop but we had 6 Communion Parties today! Below are balloons at Eno Terra. There is just something so sweet about Balloon Centerpieces, don't you think?  Next on the third floor of Tre Piani we had this lovely Communion for a little girl. Love the cube vases with the soft pastel and white Spring flowers.   Moving on to the 1st floor of Tre Piani here in the Princeton Forrestal Village, these mint julep cups were filled with brightly colored Spring Flowers. They even added a few balloon bouquets into the decor.   To see these and more of our event decorations, be sure to check out our website at www.mondaymorningballoons.com

Plants at Work Equals 12% Less Stress

I could not agree more! A few plants in the workplace mean 12% less stress according to NPR. Studies show that folks think more creatively when surround with flowers and plants.  Perfect timing for me to share our new plant section at the Princeton Store. Just this week Designer Alexis and I re-organized the store to allow us to display a wider selection of plant material for home and office.  In addition to tropical plants in all sizes we now carry succulents, air plants, blooming plants, money trees, lucky bamboo,  orchids, hanging baskets and floor sized plants.We're also now carry accessories such as hanging globes, feeders and even accessories such as terrarium containers, mosses and stones to allow folks to make their own planters at home.  Not up for creating your own planter or terrarium. No worries, we can do it for you in your vase or ours! Remember, having plants in the office lowers your stress by 12%
