Next time you order flowers for your dinner party, consider ordering specialty linens as well. We designed this floral to match the "Nantucket" style from Choice Linens. They are located next door to us and are perfect for one-stop shopping.


Got an empty vase? Wishing you could have fresh flowers in a space all the time but don't have the budget? We suggest a permanent floral arrangement. These cost more up front but the benefit of enjoying them everyday usually outweighs the price.

Bring in your vase and a picture of the space you'd like to fill, we will create something according to your personal style. If needed, we can arrange to do a site visit and look at your space in person. We have great ideas starting in fall that will carry you through all those holiday parties!


At a summer party, fresh fruits add a whimsical touch.... this bar floral has orange halves placed in among the flowers and the vase is filled with kumquats.

To brighten up this granite mantle, we chose orange gerbera daisies sprouting up from a hedge of wheat grass.

A natural wood picnic basket is overflowing with a potted coleus plant on one side and a lush vase of plum mini callas and green cymbidium orchids on the other. A great addition to that labor day barbeque.

Olympic Sculpture Park: for a dramatic burst of color, this royal blue aisle runner lines not only the ceremony aisle but continues up the steps to the pavillion. Black river rock lines each side of the runner at the ceremony area and large floral arrangements are placed on the steps.

Ring bearer's pillow: this is a great alternative to the traditional satin pillows used to carry the bride and groom's rings. These flower pillows are adorable and hold up well. We can create them in almost any color using tiny button mums. Simply untie, slip the rings down the ribbon and re-tie the bow.


Several tones of blue hydrangea accented with chocolate fern curls are designed in silver pails suspended by periwinkle ribbon on black shepherds hooks. These marked the front of a secret entrance to the ceremeny site at UW's Center for Urban Horticulture.

Large hydrangea blooms were simply wrapped with black satin ribbon to coordinate with these simple, stylish bridesmaids dresses.

Succulents anyone?... cocktail tables were adorned with various types of succulent plants floating in tiny bubble bowls with black river rock.
Centerpieces consisted of "table-scapes" of succulents, black river rock, and miniature florals of chocolate and green fiddlehead fern curls.


Dendrobium orchids and fern foliage adorn this simple wooden wishing well used to drop guest's wishes for the happy couple in.

Shepherds hooks holding sleek silver pails filled with dendrobium orchids, mosses and lush greenery add to this fabulous NW setting.

Fiddlehead fern curls and foliage are used to adorn the cake. Montera leaves, or "swiss cheese" leaves are placed on the table with a single votive candle on each.


Another gift option are our
interesting indoor plants.

Choose from hardy bromeliad plants to a natural succulent garden for your windowsill or deck.

Bromeliads and other green indoor plants are always potted nicely in a specialty container with lush moss and sell for $50.
