Meet the Team - Lisa Foster

Image
Now that we've got our blog up and going, we thought it was time to introduce our Team...the people that make Lisa Foster Floral Design tick, and the awesome group who helped make Lisa Foster Design win Fox43's Hot List award for 2009 Best Wedding Flowers! (Thanks for the votes everyone!)

We'll start at the top today with...LISA FOSTER, owner, operator, and CEO of Lisa Foster Floral Design. Lisa has been in the floral industry over 20 years, and she brings years of expertise and high-quality customer service with her. She has worked in Knoxville at other floral shops as a manager through the years and in 2004, her dream was finally realized when she opened her own floral design studio, specializing in weddings.

After making the dreams come true for over 128 brides in 2008 alone, she decided that her home studio wasn't cutting it anymore - she'd outdone herself, and outgrown her space. In 2009, the grand opening of Lisa Foster Floral Design at 6622 Kingston Pike in Kn…

Capturing the Day

Soon, we'll start highlighting many of the weddings we've done, showcasing Lisa and the Team's hard work that makes every bride's dream a reality. But along with flowers comes many other things in making a wedding day memorable, one of those being a superbly shot, emotion-capturing video.

Ryan Sutton, of Ryan's Production, has proven a great way to preserve the day and all the unforgettable moments in it with his videography. Really...I mean a great way. A group of ladies in the studio today were either tearing up or wiping away chill bumps after his video preview of the recent wedding of Brad and Amber that Ryan, One Enchanted Evening (Wedding & Event Planning with an an office in another branch of our studio on Kingston Pike), the storybook site of Dara's Garden, and Lisa Foster all participated in.

Amber Churnetski came to Lisa Foster Floral Design for her September 5th wedding; her day was filled with pink and white roses and hydrangea's, kissing ball…

Flower of the Month: Spotlight on LISIANTHUS

Image
Okay flower lovers, here's your chance to learn more about one of the most versatile and long lasting flowers out there. The Lisianthus, pronounced lis-ee-AN-thus, is most commonly known as "Prairie Gentian" and "Texas Bluebell". It's a favorite of florists and consumers based on its versatility and length of life.

The blooms of a Lisianthus have showy, cup-shaped, tulip-like flowers. Sometimes, due to their double-flowered varieties, they are mistaken for garden roses. The stems are anywhere from 12 to 24 inches long with gray-green leaves. There are flower buds at several intervals up the stem.

Colors of a Lisianthus range from pastel pink, to yellow, lavender, salmon or coral, all the way to deep purples, white, green, and even red hues.

Lisianthuses are available year-round, but most prevalent from June to December. So you still have time if you'd like one, or many, in an arrangement from Lisa Foster Design!

Okay, so you have your facts, and you've …

We're Blogging!!

Hey Knoxville!

We're so excited to be up and blogging over here at Lisa Foster Floral Design!  We've recently moved locations, and are now at 6622 Kingston Pike, in the shopping center with Bonefish Grill and beside Wedding Wonderland.  Our studio is reminiscent of Lisa's European flair with designs...and it smells great to boot (or so says almost everyone that stops by!), so come in for a visit. Stroll around, place an order for your best friend, mother, or spouse.  Make an appointment with Lisa and begin planning for your dream wedding...and the beautiful colors and scents that flowers will add to the memorable day.  Honor a loved one's memory with a beautiful casket spray or urn for the funeral. We're a full-service florist here, so bring us any order and we'll work with any budget.

But if life is just too busy these days to drop in, call us at 865.951.0660, and place an order.

We'll be doing lots of interesting things with the blog, so check back for n…
