Image
Recently, we have had brides with very unique color combinations, unique bouquet ideas and unique style! We love it. Don't get us wrong we still oooo and awwww over the classic all white-traditional bouquet but there is something about getting to do something different that just makes us excited! Here are a few of the most recent! Enjoy!!



Southern Lady Magazine

A few months ago we had a phone call from a very sweet lady at Southern Lady Magazine. She asked if they could publish a photo from our website. Of course we want you publish one of our photos! Check out the article below, and if you are interested the magazine is available for purchase at local stores! They decided to dedicate an entire page to the our photo of an arrangement in a mason jar! Thanks to JOPHOTO (we love you all!) for allowing us to have the photo and to publish it with the magazine!

SUMMER in a JAR   Mason Jars are an iconic-and quite useful mainstay of Southern culture, whether they             are holding Granny' s peach preserves or the sweetest iced tea this side of heaven.             Lisa Foster of Lisa Foster Floral Design in Knoxville (lisafosterdesign.com) has fine-tuned             yet another use for this handy holder: flower vase. She lined a jar with a ti leaf and other             greenery then filled it with an arrangement featuring pink Bonaparte gerber…

Flower Giving

Image
It seems that every step of a relationship deals with flowers.  In the classic depiction of a man coming to pick up a girl for a date he has a bouquet of flowers as he knocks on the door. Then on the wedding day the bride carries a bouquet down the aisle toward her soon to-be husband. Following that every birthday, anniversary and every Mother's Day are filled with vases, and vases of flowers. Then when we  finally meet our Maker there are flowers at our funeral. Funeral flowers are the last nice thing you can do for someone.  
What is it that makes us love giving and receiving flowers? For that matter, what is it that makes people think of sending flowers first? Is it the convenience factor, or maybe the fact that for a little money flowers show you care? Why do flowers symbolize love and caring? A child picking a dandelion from the yard and giving to their mom even brings out a smile.

According to an article on: The History Behind The Custom of Giving Flowers it started back in …

How About A Garden Party, For Your Next Party!

You know what you never hear about... Garden Parties! 
It's truly a shame that more people don't throw garden parties. People grill out and have barbecues all of the time, but when do you hear, "Oh, I'm heading over to Lucille's for her garden party"...NEVER! 
Think about it folks, you have the perfect setting with minimal decorations... the only items you need are mason jars to put a few flower clippings in for centerpieces, a table cloth and some yummy finger foods. Maybe throw in a large brim hat to get the mood just right and you are set! 
Today we were fortunate enough to help with the Town and Country Garden Club, Garden Party. Their color scheme was all shades of purple! Which Lisa was particularly happy with since that is her favorite color!  Hopefully, the rain will hold off for them to enjoy their luncheon.   
A garden party would be a perfect way to have a bridesmaid luncheon or bridal shower with friends and family. A baby shower or birthday party wou…

To Mom, With Love

To help our friends and clients get a their Mother's Day (Sunday, May 13) gifts taken care of ahead of time we thought we'd post about what Lisa Foster Floral Design can do to help you tell your Mom, I love you. There are many ways to tell her she is appreciated, loved and just how much she means to you.
Flowersare always a great way to show love. Moms love getting flowers and if you have them delivered a few days ahead of time she can even brag to neighbors or co-workers about how sweet her children are to send such a nice bouquet of flowers.  With flowers there are a few different options of what to choose. Fresh-cut flowers are typical to send but we will have more options if you want something that will last longer. Get your mom an orchid or potted hydrangea plant. Contrary to popular belief, orchids don't require that much attention. One good watering over the kitchen sink once per week is al they need to survive. Hydrangea plants require more water, typically once a …
