Yes, I have been remiss...

Well I cannot deny that I am happier designing with flowers than writing a blog...but I HAVE  sorta let it slide too long.  I do have a good reason though, ~ I have been making beautiful events and bringing a lot of happiness to people, so that should give me  a little pass:)
I will try to be more diligent, and catch up with all the events we've been creating!
O! BTW A brand new website and blog are in the making so I am very excited to see the finished project!

Happy Valentine's Day,

You don't need to send a dozen roses, (although I DO love flowers,) heart shaped chocolates, (although I DO love heart shaped boxes of chocolates), or any extravagant pleasures, A paper heart that says I love you will do!

This week on my kitchen table...
I had purple flowers left from a sample I did for a wedding so I brought them home...

Kitchen table

 This is a vase of flowers I plunked on the kitchen table the other day. Just a simple, random bunch of tulips and ranunculas. 
(Ok ~ a messy kitchen table but still...)
 And it occurred to me just now, that it is as natural for me to have flowers around as it is to breath;  
I am never without them. 
  I don't know how people can live without flowers.
 My dad always said  "you need food to nourish your body, and beauty to nourish your soul" ~ spoken as a true artist, And he was dead right ~ how can one live without such beauty?












Sometimes I think, as artists, we try too hard to improve on the simple, perfect, beauty of this world...

Emily and Eric @ the Pierre Hotel....


Emily knew she wanted all white blossoms in the winter, ~ she also knew she wanted tree branches reaching from table to table to create a bower for the guests to sit and walk under....Her mom knew she wanted a large full centerpiece, ("I like alot of flowers!") and Eric (the groom) well, he just wanted a boutonniere!

Emily wanted to give the guests a petite jar of preserves with their names and the date on each of 6 varieties that were made by a charming shop near their house on Martha's vineyard, and the Pierre had mini croissants made so we could put 2 in each box for the guests to take with them when they left @ 2a.m.!
Sylvia Wienstock's ALWAYS amazing cakes!

of Course, Chris Edmonds and Bill Spinner from the Pierre Hotel did a flawless job as always...
