Saturday Flowers

Recently I provided the flowers for a Garden of Hope event hosted by the Cancer Support Community of the Greater Lehigh Valley. It was an outdoor event filled with inspiring stories of courage, hope and inspiration from a cancer survivor and a Salsa performance by Lehigh Valley Salsa.

The flowers I used were a few of my favorites: golden rod, hydrangea, chrysanthemum, voodoo roses, zinnias and hosta leaves to line the interior of the clear glass vases.

This little fella was still feasting and wasn’t quite ready to give up its tasty meal.

And here are the creations.

Happy Saturday!

Sunday Flowers

This is going to be a quickie post but I wanted to share my latest creation. Today I whipped together two giant arrangements like the photo above using only free floral bounty I could collect locally — no store-bought flowers here! And no, I didn’t break any laws.

In a galvanized bucket, I arranged hydrangea, anemone, red wheat-head celosia and crab apple.

Happy Sunday!

Burlap Beauties

Recently I was asked to create a collection of flower arrangements for an event hosted by an amazing non-profit called Healing Through The Arts. The organization provides art, information and resources to encourage and support healing to individuals, caregivers and their families. Please do check out their website here!

I wanted my creations to be extra special so I picked up a bunch of potted hydrangea and cineraria but of course they are sold in those nasty plastic pots and foil wrappers.

With a little burlap, twine and moss these girls are all dressed up and ready for the ball!

Happy Friday and happy crafting!
