Urban Poppy: in the garden

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.

It seems that most of my blog posts and letters these days start with an exclamation of sorts of my marveling where the time has gone. Seasons come and they go . . .

The weather weaves back and forth from warm to chilly and blustery this month but the groundhog is promising an early spring. As brisk as it is, the camellias . . .

Spring Baby April 09 2015, 0 Comments

It's why I like the dirt, why I rubber-neck when I drive past a highway median covered in wild flowers, why pollen covered, furry bees humming away all make me happy. I'm an April baby and as carpe diem as they come. Sure, there was the occasional late season snow storm on my birthday in good ol' NYC, but down here in Savannah, I'm already feeling behind on my raised beds.

But no fear, I made six little succulent boxes this morning, plopped down on the concrete in front of the shop, planting away. When I left later that afternoon, Taryn and I realized we'd sold five of them! Poor me! I guess I have to play in the dirt some more tomorrow ;)

Happy Spring and happy gardening!

These past four years have been quite an adventure in the world of weddings. We find that the demand for excellent design lasts in weddings and beyond. With our backgrounds in interior design, graphic design and fibers, our love and passion for all things beautiful + living, a botanical boutique proved to be the perfect next step.
If you're in Savannah, please stop by and say hello. Otherwise, it is our hope that you'll get to see a little into our world through browsing and shopping our online store and following our little journal.
