Touch of the Tropics

Greetings All!

We received a large shipment of tropical Hawaiian Orchids today and they are gorgeous! If you are looking for something that is unique and different for a Christmas gift and (still) don't know what to get an orchid might just be the perfect gift. We have a variety of sizes and a variety of colors so you should come by and get an orchid or two. Here are a few photos to show you just what we mean by gorgeous!

We hope you enjoyed our beautiful orchids! If you are worried about the care of these beautiful and exotic flowers don't be. Lisa is an expert in orchids and we can teach you how to care for your orchids so they last a very long time.

At Home Tennessee Magazine - Sarah and Andrew Duncan

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Today we received our copy of At Home Tennessee Magazine and guess what?!? One of our brides made page 65. Sarah Petty and Andrew Duncan wed on January 30, 2010 at the Fox Den Country Club. The main color was red with touches of black. Photography was done by Brandt Photography, Catering was provided by Fox Den Country Club and Sarah's dress came from White Lace and Promises. One of the best personal touches of the wedding was all of the guests where to throw paper airplanes at Sara and Andrew as they left the Country Club.

"Choosing to have a wedding in January forces you to take a different approach from the typical  summer wedding. We had one common phrase we used to describe our wedding: simple yet elegant." - Sarah

Christmas Door!

Seasons Greetings!

So for weeks Lisa and The Design Team have gone from house to house decorating for Christmas.  Well, we would like to share a couple of photos from the Hatcher house. Which was our last house to decorate for the 2010 Christmas Season!

Thank you Tina Hatcher for allowing us to share the photos of your beautiful front door.  I don't know about you, but it gives me the warm-fuzzies and puts me in the mood for a nice cup of hot cocoa!


Merry Christmas!

December Flower of the Month : Amaryllis

Greetings Everyone!

Lisa and the Team are out and about today working hard on the last day of decorating houses. Back here in the shop we've got a lot going on preparing for two weddings this weekend. Especially, blogging about our flower of the month! This December we are highlighting the Amaryllis.

Quick Facts (from Amaryllis Bulb Company)

     * planting period: October - Late April
     * Flowering period: Late December - Late June
     * Flowering time is 7 - 10 weeks
     * Larger bulbs produce more flowers
     * Always store un-planted bulbs in a cool place between 40 - 50 deg. F. 

Many people enjoy growing amaryllis at home because they are easy to grow and beautiful to look at.  The word Amaryllis comes from the Greek word for "sparkling" which makes sense since they help brighten up any room during the cold winter months. They can be found in red, pink, yellow and a few combination of these colors. We love them here at LFFD! They are so unique looking and lovely with their many different colors.
