Cutting Florals. When cutting flowers to put in an arrangement, you should cut them at a 45-degree angle with flower clippers. This increases the amount of exposed surface area, which allows the flowers to absorb more water. Follow this small step to ensure your arrangement will last longer.
Seasonal Florals. Although flowers we work with are shipped to a local flower market each day, there are certain blooms that don’t grow all year round. Peonies are a crowd favorite, but many people don’t know that they're only available for a short period of time in the beginning of summer. Dahlias and hydrangea are stunning florals you can find in the fall. These are featured in many arrangements and also come in many colors and textures. Dahlias also come in many sizes! Roses and hydrangea are grown all year round and are frequently used. The availability and array of colors make these flowers a popular bloom in our studio.
Succulents. Succulents are a sturdy plant that will live for an extended period of time with minimal upkeep. They come in a few colors but make a statement with their unique look. Succulents also come in a variety of sizes! Some have diameters of only a few centimeters where as others can be a foot. We use succulents in arrangements, floral walls and table runners.
Flower Walls. Flower walls are the latest trend in creating an Instagrammable moment at your event. While designing a floral wall, our team picks out the best flowers to fit your theme while also choosing varieties that are durable for the building process. Roses are one of the main flowers that are used to create a floral wall. They are strong and come in many colors, so you'll easily find roses in hues that match an event's color scheme.
