the flower basket

I don’t know about you but picking flowers with a pretty basket (and dress) is about as close to perfection as it comes.

a seasonal bouquet

When we started the farm just last season we really wanted to emphasize on growing and choosing local flowers, so going into our second season we really want to build on that. When we create our bouquets they are seasonal and mostly grown on our property. If we choose something else it will be from another local grower in the Fraser Valley. Each week our bouquets will introduce new flowers and no two alike and that’s what will give us that beautiful seasonal flare.

Now to wait to get back into that studio and create!

Christmas Blooms

Well Christmas is almost upon us and I wanted to share this quick and easy holiday arrangement to add to any parties you are hosting or to bring as a hostess gift. I mean who doesn’t love flowers?

Here is what you need for 1 arrangement:

  • 1 small pot (I used 4″ galvanized)
  • 2 white hydrangeas
  • 1 magnolia leaf (I broke it apart to stretch it further)
  • 3 white roses

I cut them all nice and low to keep a uniformed look and started with the hydrangeas and basically just plunked in the other stems where there where holes. There is no real design to these so anyone can do it!

 

*these are not local blooms as it is obviously December and not our growing season
