The Perfect Holiday Gift: Francoise Weeks Savannah Workshop June 28 2017, 2 Comments


Valentine's Day January 14 2017, 0 Comments

It's amazing to think we're exactly a month away from that special day hallmarking Love. Valentine's Day has always been a favorite holiday of mine even before I became a floral designer.
My mom always make it extremely special with homemade heart shaped biscuits and tart cherry jam from our little cherry tree in the backyard. Sweethearts were passed out to little classmates and if we looked hard enough, darling little violets would be poking there heads out and mom would help us make nosegays in tin foil and paper lace doilies to give to our teachers (lucky teachers!)
One might argue that Love shouldn't just be celebrated one day and I agree, but the nostalgia and sweetness behind the holiday is what continues to inspire me to create little gifts and flowers wrapped in love. Sweet nothings that whisper the sender's love.
