Rustic fall colors abound

Good-bye summer weddings .........Hello Fall brides!   Looking forward to all the upcoming engagements, means lots of wedding consulting at the beach! 

What an amazing wedding season it was in Cannon Beach, Oregon!  So many beautiful brides said their "I do's" in the sand at the edge of the majestic Pacific Ocean.

Are you going to be one of them in 2013? 

Trying to figure out just where to start all the plotting and planning for a destination wedding? 

Give us a call, we can get you headed in the right direction if you are a DIY and like to do all the planning yourself - OR - we can do it for you if you like a bit more hand holding with the wedding consultant!  800-611-5826

Looking forward to helping create beautiful memories  - Debbie
* your floral consultant, designer, artist, and at times floral magician when need be!

Just because we are a Basketcase....

Doesn't mean you have to be!  Really we can think of nothing worse than a disappointed bride (well maybe a room full of angry hyenas).  And when we have to look at a glowing bride (or groom!) and tell them their dream bouquet of lily of the valley and ranunculus just won't happen in October, we can really feel their pain.  While there are many wonderful flowers that are available year round (gerberas, lilies, roses, stick and twigs, oh my!), there really are limitations to certain key flowers that we all love.  Typical spring flower really are only available in spring, peonies have a very limited season (only May-June!), and the ever traditional lily of the valley is really only available early spring.  So if there is a must have flower on your list, plan accordingly. Want spring flowers, have a spring wedding!  Like fall colors, celebrate in September.  Love is everlasting, unfortunately flower seasons are not!  Here is a good guide for when flowers are available and when in doubt give us a call!

Ahh weddings!

Well by the looks of our schedule it seems that love still reigns....weddings, weddings, and more weddings.  We never seem to tire of meeting with brides and grooms, all aglow with the love buzz!  No matter their position in life or season they all are giddy with excitement and the joy of planning a new life together.  And we love being there with them!  Cheers to all our upcoming couples and to those who are just starting the planning here is a little inspiration!

Head Over Heels??

When was the last time she actually got flowers??

Sometimes we dismiss the little somethings of Valentine's as unnecessary, trivial, or even cliché. I'm normally the first person to say that I don't need flowers (the irony of being a florist!), but there is something so special about someone going all out to say that you are worth it. The luxury of investing in something that will not last, somehow turns into an emotional high that will reap rewards for a long time to come. So why not make an impression....

Sustainable Love.....

Ahhh the plight of today's florists and retailers around the world. Bombarded with questions of sustainability, quality and affordability it can almost be impossible to buy anything. As florists especially, we think about this everyday. Farmers from around the world supply us with their harvests weekly. They plant and plan for months (years even) just to get ready for Valentine's. They are really in control of our success (wire and floral tape can only go so far)! So we have always had a commitment to these people, buying and selling socially responsible beauty!
Veriflora and FlorVerde are signs that we look for to ensure that the both the earth and the farmer benefit from our investment. These certifications keep our greatest values in mind quality and sustainability. So loose the guilt trip of buying yet another thing made in China and join with us to invest in
farmers and families from right here in Oregon to South America and make her (or him) smile!
