Something Borrowed, Something Blue

Tradition is usually a big part of wedding-day ceremonies and activities.  Most have heard the bride’s wedding-day rhyme:

Something old, something new
Something borrowed, something blue
And a sixpence in your shoe


The rhyme describes the five objects a bride should have with her on her wedding day for good luck. Brides have been following this custom for centuries. It started as a Victorian-era rhyme that came out of the English country Lancashire.

Love These Boxes!

March is finally here and Spring isn’t far behind!  Are you ready for Spring?  I know I sure am!  We are getting closer and closer to the time of year when there are lots of weddings.  I get excited!  I especially love the rustic frames and shadow boxes that are among my favorites.


A Night To Shine Service Night

Let’s Dance!

Dance is the movement of the body in a rhythmic way, usually to music and within a given space, for the purpose of expressing an idea or emotion such as joy, releasing energy, or simply taking delight in the movement itself.

Before and After Floral Preservation

Transition: The process or a period of changing from one state or condition to another.

When we stop to think about it, everything in life is about a transition from one state to another. Our day transitions into evening and evening into night. Summer transitions into Autumn and Autumn into Winter.  A state of ignorance transitions into knowledge. Something lost becomes something found.  Every meaningful aspect of our lives involves transition. Floral arrangements are used for many of our most important transitions.


Winter Flowers

Winter is at last upon us with our first truly cold spell. While the days may be shorter we are busy creating several lovely wedding pieces from this past fall.
