{moss moss moss}

I just love spring moss...I think it is so fresh and a fun alternative to wicker.  We picked up these moss purses and baskets in Los Angeles this winter.  They are perfect for flower girls or a special gift.

Our moss purse sells for $20.  We can add rose petals for scattering down the isle or a small arrangement - as seen here for an additional charge.  We are also excited to offer a new line of rhinestone broches this year. 

Here we arranged simple white hydrangeas in 2 moss purses for the Junior League's Breakfast at Tiffany's fundraiser.

We also offer two sizes of moss baskets, a small and medium.  The medium basket is pictured here full of flowers for the flower girl to carry.  Our purses and baskets make a special keepsake for the young attendants in your wedding party.

{not what i had planned}

So once again I say, "not my will Lord, but your will be done in this house".  I am submitting this post to show that life as a floral designer is not as glamorous as many think.  I have spent the last 3 days in bed with a sick Rocco - I now know why the laptop was really invented!  Just wanted to share a slice of our real life.  Blessings!

Ag One Community Salute - March 2

It was a thrill to play a small role in the recent Ag One Community Salute.  The Fresno State agricultural development office organized a wonderful event at the Convention Center for 1200 guests to honor Stewart Resnick.  We were very honored to provide the event centerpieces and other various decorations.

The event colors were clover green with tangerine orange, yellow and coral.  We used our clover green fabric table squares for the centerpiece anchors.  The whole look was very fresh and felt like spring.  Our cold storage trailer full of happy flowers!

Guests were welcomed to the cocktail area with these two arrangements - Paramont provided all of the tangerines - seen here submerged - and topped with lush citrus colored floral arrangements.  We created these two barn wood pillars to hold the arrangements.

Arrangements for the appetizer tables - our large chocolate urns with gardenia bush's and oranges.

Centerpieces were made using wooden boxes filled with flowers and tangerines.  Almonds and pistachio's were incorporated throughout the event as well.

Even the restrooms were decorated with flowers - I was so excited to have a good excuse to use these dried eucalyptus rounds salvaged from our ranch.

My faithful assistants...making sure our oranges are nice and clean!
