I know I've been a terrible blogger lately, but maybe these hot pink dahlias will tide you over until next time. Which will be soon, I promise!
Or perhaps this lovely potted succulent?
Or maybe this awesomely orange calendula? These are just a few things we've been obsessed with using in arrangements in the shop lately. Such gorgeous summer flowers.

Lately at the shop we've been overcome with love for orchids. Maybe it's our new plant section with grow lights and everything you actually need to successfully take care of plants... Yeah, that could be it! But seriously, they are just so pretty. There's nothing quite like a beautiful orchid. The Lady Slipper in the top left is my favorite, what are yours?

Early Spring always makes me want things to be clean and crisp. I think yellow and green is a nice way to achieve that look, as opposed to the white/green combo, which of course is always nice too... yellow and green is just a nice way to shake it up a bit!
As promised, here is a little collage of our newest window display. We got the coolest birch to cover the walls with. It has been really fun. I think it will be really great to keep up through the summer, and who knows? Maybe even the fall as well! The cabinet pictured was actually handmade by one of our gardening employees out of our old floor boards, which we took up to install some antique tile. It's such a great piece! I'm pretty sure we all want it for our selves... A great addition to the shop!

We actually just finished painting the walls in the shop, so I will be posting some photos of our new look soon. As well as some photos of new merchandise. We got some a couple gorgeous new chandeliers! Can't wait to show them to you!

I feel like such a lazy jerk not posting. But I am now, right? So it's okay. Anyhoo, our Valentine's Day at the shop was amazing. We made so many gorgeous arrangements for our regular customers, as well as some new customers. So all in all, it was a great, fun weekend. I will post some photos of our favorite arrangements soon. In the meantime, check out this gorgeous ranunculus.

I've been trying to make different arrangements lately while I'm in the shop. It is far too easy to get stuck making the same thing over and over. So, here we have my latest creation. We have a lot of pink and red flowers right now in preparation for oh you know, no particular reason, so naturally I was drawn to them. Especially this super pale pink ranunculus. Aren't they the prettiest?

Valentines Day is quickly approaching and so naturally, being florists, we are all experimenting with different arrangements we can make for customers on the big day. Nothing against the classic red rose bouquet, because those really are quite lovely. It's just fun to do something a little differently, right? That said, here are a few arrangements we've done this week in preparation. Perhaps we'll get a chance to make some more on Valentines Day!

Here are some bits and pieces of our January window display. We will probably be changing it soon to get ready for Valentine's Day, which I imagine will be very different and much more pink! Stay tuned!

Paul made this bouquet of the week. The antique pitcher on it's own is gorgeous, but the subtle pastels in the flowers make it really sweet.
