Summer Parties and Showers

We LOVED this summer!  It was full of parties and showers that we were able to bring to life and color with our flower arrangements. 
While we still love digging in the dirt, we are loving the opportunities to beautify events with cut flowers. This fall, we are taking on a wedding and a rehearsal dinner where we are handling all decor...SO FUN! Stay tuned to hear about those!
In the meantime, here is what we were up to this summer in the world of parties: 
Fabulous pink arrangement for a Baby Shower for a little girl.
Hydrangeas, Lillies, and Roses...oh my!

Engagement Party Composition.
Sunflowers, Hydrangeas, and Delphinium!

A luncheon at the Piedmont Driving Club to celebrate little Frances' Christening

Hydrangeas, Lisianthus, Roses, Queen Anne's Lace, and Seeded Eucalyptus

Another shower celebrating a sweet baby girl!

A masterpiece for a Christening Luncheon in the works! 
Hydrangeas, Roses, and Gerbers are made wild with vines!

Splendid Spring and Summer

Whoah...Where does the time go??  Spring sprung and Summer swiftly sizzled away.  I know we have been absent on our blog, but we have been busy as bees for the past few months!! Enjoy some pictures below of some of our work from spring plantings. 
As the dog days of summer are winding down, we know that container and flower bed plantings can start to look tired.  We can refresh with warm weather annuals to last until the first frost, or we can prep and give your pots a rest until fall annuals are ready in late September or early October.  It's just too hot for mums, pansies, and violas (try to ignore them when you see them in retail stores!!) 
Shady awesomeness...Ferns, Angel Wing Begonias, Miss Muffet Caladiums, Torenia

Fantastic Boxwood 3-ball Topiaries

Love, love, love replanting this every season.  Ferns and Ivy stay year round and allow enough room for seasonal color.

I'll have my boxwood topiary with a view of downtown and Stone Mountain, please!

Loving Torenia this year!!
