What Does A Year Look Like For Florists.

This is how a year in the life of a florists goes by.... January starts a new year with all the excitement of preparing for Valentine's Day and Wedding Season and everything else the year holds. January also is our downtime and relaxing after a very busy Christmas Decorating season. We are tired of Jingle Bells, Decking the Halls and all things Red and Gold.  Once February hits we get into the Love of all things Spring since we tend to get in the first of the tulips, hyacinth and other beautiful Spring flowers. Valentine's Day brings in some business and often times produces brides to-be.  March is also a month where we get to take a few deep breaths before we hit April and May which is the first lap of Wedding Season. Our brides so far this year have had wonderful taste! They know what they want and make sure every detail is perfect for their big day! Check out some of the photos from this past weekends weddings! So much color!

June is the traditional wedding month and 2012 wi…

Elizabeth Miller Wedding - Smithview Pavilion

Elizabeth Miller was one of those brides who knew what she wanted and went for it. Every detail of her wedding was well thought out and executed.

We love everything that went into the seating chart, cake "table" and pretty much every other detail you could think of. 
The colors worked perfectly and the flowers she wanted to use are some of our favorites! She is one of our girls this year who wanted shades of peach and ivory with touches of ... you guessed it, turquoise! Thankfully, Elizabeth knew how to use the turquoise throughout her wedding with the girls dresses, paper for banners and the backdrop for their photo booth. We will stop rambling on and let you enjoy the photos! Once aga…

Weekend Flower Planting

T . G . I . Flowers, as the weekdays have dwindled into the beloved weekend here are a few ideas of how you can cure your cabin fever and give your tired lawn a facelift!
With the warm weather we've had lately it's a good time to get your hands dirty. Stop by your local nursery and pick up some plants, mulch and a cute pair of gardening gloves (who says getting dirty can't be cute!)
Here are some good ideas of what to pick up and plant this weekend.
First, why not plant some rose bushes! Roses will be in bloom soon and who wouldn't love to stop and smell them? Cut them from the yard and use them in your home! We recommend buying plants from a trusted and local nursery or online greenhouse where they take care of their plants. Something to look for in any plant is the roots and leaves. 
Ask yourself these important questions; are the leaves healthy looking and are the roots established well? If the leaves show signs of spots, yellowing, or brown crunchy areas move on to a h…
