Late summer and fall weddings are just around the corner so it is time to start thinking about your flowers. We love the idea of using gorgeous succulents, air plants, and wild and dried flowers to create fabulous bridal bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages. Best yet, not only are the bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages long lasting, they can be easily unwrapped and planted after your big day. Additionally, using succulents for your wedding flowers offers two more distinct advantages
- Succulent bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages are an eco-friendly choice for upcycling your wedding flowers.
- You and your wedding party can enjoy your wedding bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages for years to come.
We are particularly enamored with the showcased airplant boutonnieres and wildflower boutonnieres. These particular boutonnieres feature oregano, dried blooms, and assorted wild flowers, with a twine treatment on the stem. How fabulous! Here is another image showing the variety and detail available. Best yet, they are only $14.00 each! Continue Reading →

It doesn't take much to figure out that we love flowers. We always have either a fresh floral bouquet, small flower arrangement, or beautiful orchid in every room of our office and home. So not surprisingly, to get in the Halloween spirit we went on a search for just a few of the fun Halloween themed floral arrangements available both for ourselves and to be sent as gifts.
Our first stop was Gift Tree because not only do we like their selections, we know we can count on them for only the freshest flowers delivered in a professional and timely manner. We love the Candy Corn Delight for an all purpose autumn arrangement but if we were hosting a Halloween party, we might have to go with the Ghostly Gardens Bouquet. Truthfully, we keep second guessing ourselves – all of the arrangements are lovely.
