I love the our big new studio where I design fun stuff! This year, I am trying different colour combinations… no more WHITE AND GREEN for AMY! So I took one of my designer, Nicola’s suggestion and made this lemony yellow bouquet with hint of dusty miller grey!
Check it out this bouquet is taking a rose petal bath! Mmmmm… sexy!
I have designed with roses, ranunculus, lisianthus, apricot parrot tulips, and dusty miller. Finishing it off with some neutral burlap wrapping.
Just to be fair, I designed something fun for the groom and groomsman as well ~ Cute ranunculus boutonnieres with moss!
Hope you enjoyed this week’s great colour combo – Yellow and Grey!

According to the calendar the first day of spring was Tuesday March 20th, but here in Vancouver I really think spring arrived this past Saturday, the sky was bright blue, the sun was shining and the air finally has a softness to it, that cold bite seems to have disappeared, and I for one couldn’t be more pleased!!
Spring is a time for all things new, new flowers, new leaves on the trees and new babies! We sent this lovely soft arrangement out the door today to welcome a new baby girl to the world. It has garden roses, anemones, freesia, tulips, viburnum and seeded eucalyptus.
Oh and I spent the weekend on Pender Island a little while ago and just about died when I saw these cute little guys. I mean what says spring more than lambs!! They were sooooo adorable, I took like a million photos, I will only subject you to the one.
What’s you’re favourite thing about spring??

Yesterday we had the pleasure of decorating a beautiful wedding reception at the Dockside Restaurant on Granville Island.
A stunning venue on a beautiful day.
The wedding decor centred around a pink and purple colour theme. Above is the bridal bouquet designed with orchids, roses, viburnum and peonies.
The bridesmaids were carrying a beautiful bouquet designed with pink roses, cymbidium orchids, viburnum and lisianthus.
Guests were greeted at the entrance by two beautiful standards on each side.
A modern combination of pink flowers decorated the guest signing table.
The centrepieces were designed with hot pink roses, pink and purple tulips, garden roses and viburnum.

We have been urbanized, computerized, and kept away from nature nowadays. When was the last time you hiked the Grouse grind, camped in the woods, or even jogged in the park?
Shamely, mine was 7 years ago. Living in busy downtown vancouver and working full time as a florist, I am constantly busy. But I consider myself lucky because I am able to work with beautiful flowers and unique plants all the time. It’s fun to come up with different designs with birch bark and other earthy ingredients. In this blog post, we have transformed birch bark into different forms and designs.
1. We use them as a unique vase
Bigger rectangular birch box
2. We use them as an ajustable birch art table piece
You can design it with any flowers you like! I love white cymbidium orchids, green viburnums, and moss!
3. We use them via modern layers of flowers on birch
Layers of goodies!
Green fashion roses
Succulents and amaranthus
What’s your favourite earthy ingredients? Think about it and reach out to us on facebook. We will design something cool for you!
