Hey everyone! Today I'm introducing a new group of gardeners which I am happy to be a part of! The Garden Share Collective. It is similar but not quite identical to Garden Connect and for me, it's a great way to share what's going on in my own garden!
Good morning all, Happy Floral Friday! This week I wanted to go a bit more in depth into my experience as a florist, some of the awesome people I’ve met, and what it takes to be a florist. I’m a very laid back person, and I enjoy a relaxed space where I can get my work done and be creative. But this requires schooling and businesses that allow you to try out your creative side and with that I've been blessed.
I'm getting quite eager to start gardening and having heard from the other Garden Connect members, I can tell that once I can get going, it's going to be a great year!
That said, I did cheat the other day. I decided to spare ten seeds, five Basil and five Red Lola Darkness Lettuce, for early planting! It helped to make me feel caught up having heard that almost everyone else has started some seeds or prepped their garden beds!
A few weeks ago I talked about how you can use succulents in events as a centerpiece, this week I would like to discuss how succulents are trending in wedding bouquet design and how these original bouquets are created. Lately the earthy, DIY, thrifty bride who looks has the beautiful lacy dress with the floral crown and the wavy hair and the natural fresh out of the garden look has become more and more popular. But how can you achieve that fresh out of the garden look with succulents? Easy have an all succulent bouquet at your wedding!
Canada Blooms is Canada’s largest flower and garden show; this year it was held from March 14th-23rd. It was such a neat experience! It my first time going so I had no idea what to expect. There were so many unique and different things to see from modern artist arrangements to floral dresses to woodsy set ups that lift you out of the busy city to a calming peaceful mindset! As a floral design student, getting to see pieces from artists way more advanced in the field than me, it was great seeing different techniques and styles that can be used in my own designs. It got me thinking outside the box for creations I never would have thought possible.
