My most requested color palette this year has included butterscotch and toffee colored roses. I typically see these colors in more boho-style bouquets and wanted to put a timeless spin on this modern carmel color. ⁣ ⁣ Photography @maritwilliamsphoto⁣ Creative Direction @roseandlaurelmn⁣ Venue @labmpls⁣ HAMU @melanie.rivers

Sorry for being such a stranger gang. How is everyone doing?💕I have been busy with spring plantings, work, and trying my best to get the hang of homeschooling. I am also trying to spend as much time as I can outdoors each day and have been enjoying all of the flowers coming into bloom. I hope these Periwinkles and Violets make you smile. 💐🌸🌱😊

Don't even need Carrie Bradshaw to tell me these shoes are a good idea. ⁣ Are you rocking some fabulous shoes for your big day?

Did you know? EVERY wedding order, no matter the size, comes with complimentary detail flowers for your photographer. Heck, we'll even stick around and style your details if your schedule is tight. Because you better believe after we spend hours sourcing just the right color blush flowers, you're going to want a photo!

Pinning the ribbon; the final step in the bridal bouquet and probably my favorite part.

As I have mentioned in my earlier posts, I am trying to post more close up pictures of florals, tips for working full time with kids and pets underfoot, and tales of when something went wrong but it all worked out in the end!😊💕💐 So what better to share with you than a review written by a couple who we still delivered flowers for- during HURRICANE IRENE! As always, we pulled through for our couple!💐🌻🌺🌸🌷🌱 To see this review and others please visit Wedding Wire.

We prioritize local and U.S. grown product in our designs. While this current crisis has proven difficult for our business, we are thankful for our current and continuing relationships with our local flower farmers and rose farmers who are working hard to make sure we will have all the flowers this year!

It still amazes me that many of our past couples already have school aged children of their own! 💕And I feel so lucky that in many cases I was actually one of the first people to hear the exciting news! What an honor and a joy to be told, "we can't tell anyone yet, but we HAD to tell someone, so we though of you"! Can you even imagine!? But as anyone will tell you, florists are the secret keepers of society😉💐🤫💕 In any event, for those of you now telecommuting while homeschooling, here are some ideas to help infuse some floral and plant life into your homeschool curriculum (please just Google search these for details and ideal ages, etc., as Instagram makes it too time consuming for me to embed all these links). And if you can think of any others please add them to the comments so we can help eachother out!💐💕😊 💐Virtual Tours: NY Botanical Gardens Kew Garden, Richmond, England Claude Monet’s Garden, Giverny, France Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden, Papaikou, Hawaii 🧸Movies: Truck Farm Bee Movie Gnomeo and Juliet The Original Peter Rabbit Movie from the 80's is IDEAL FOR NAPTIME!🤫 The New Peter Rabbit (You can use this in place of any virtual workout class, it is very frenetic and makes my youngest bounce off the walls when she watches it) 🌻Books The Little Prince All Beatrix Potter Super Worm Chrysanthemum The Secret Garden (I wouldn't recommend this one for kiddos during this time, but maybe for adults?) ⭐And Ultimate Book For Working Super Mom's: The Country Bunny and the Gold Shoes⭐💕 🌱Activities Coming Soon!

First and foremost, we are here for you.❤ We have been working with many of our couples and other seasoned professionals to help with alternative wedding dates and plans, and so far so good😊. Please keep in mind I have been through difficult times in the past as a florist. I have worked through and witnessed the floral community's responses to 9/11, multiple weather events shutting down the floral supply chain, the recession in 2008 (one year after starting A Night in Bloom with a mortgage and a baby), Sandy Hook, and a million other mini crises that happen weekly in the floral and event worlds.💐 But this virus is new, and it is really upsetting to those of us planning beautiful celebrations and weddings! I know Instagram is always a little fantasy bubble of happiness, so I have struggled a lot with what type of content to post during all of this. For the time being I am committed to offering only close up images of flowers; tips for managing working from home with children or pets underfoot; and tales of times when something went wrong at an event, but it all worked out in the end. My hope is that this type of content will make you smile, and put your mind at ease a little during this uncertain time.😊Really hoping everyone is doing okay through all of this.💕

I'm doing my best to stay creative during this uncertain time. Spending time in the studio always helps lower my anxiety and makes me feel more centered. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The good thing is that Spring is here and I have new things blooming in the garden every week to work with. Last week there were daffodils, muscari, and giant snowdrops. This week tulips and irises are starting to peek open and I can see pink buds on my cherry tree. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I'm looking forward to sharing what I create with you as the season unfolds. 🌸🌿 . . .

Honored to be a guest on @theflowerpodcast this week along with @sweetrootvillage @clementines_ga and @marionmossfloral. We're talking all about spreading kindness through flowers, how our businesses have been impacted by the global situation we find ourselves in, and how this community is coming together. #allthefeels Also, I showed great restraint and not making Friends references when talking about "pivot". You're welcome. Thank you @cutflowerscott for all your hard work in sharing these stories this week!

When we design, it's not just about making pretty flowers. It's about telling your love story, capturing your personality, and making sure that your florals are picture perfect from every angle.

I have always loved this quote.💐💕 I can't think of a better time than the first day of spring amid a pandemic to share it. And of course I had to share one of my very most loved flowers, Lily of The Valley. 🌾This flower has always symbolized many things through the years, but the one I am holding on to is "a return to happiness". 🌞It will come my dear friends. Hugs to all of the florists right now, it has been a rough 24 hours.❤

Hi Flower Friends, I hope you are all doing okay. 💖I know we are dealing with these unfolding events in our own ways, but if there is one piece of advice I'd like to give you all it is to CONSIDER GARGLING TWICE A DAY WITH LISTERINE! 💫 Event pros have been doing this for years, because if you are self employed, you simply CANNOT get sick and this usually keeps us healthy! I have made my kids do this every time they are exposed to sick friends and classmates and it has always worked!  Most recently Violet and I were trapped in a small dressing room for a week, during a holiday ballet performance.  Well the entire group caught the stomach bug, but Vi and I were the only ones who did not, I'd like to think it was because we gargled like maniacs the whole time. 😷Clearly I am not a doctor, but this has worked for me and my crew for years, so I thought I would share. Sending lots of healthy vibes out to you all during this challenging time! 💕💪I will be reaching out to those of you with upcoming weddings shortly, with the updated information we have so far, but I really wanted to share this tip with you all first and foremost!

I was asked today what I love about my industry, field or line of work. I LOVE working with flowers. Fresh or preserved. Each flower is different, they constantly remind me that's the way life is. Each flower is different, not one single one is the same, so each of the bouquets and arrangements I put together will be different. Each human being is different and unique in his/her own way too, remember? If we can embrace the differences of each flower, why can't we embrace one another's differences? . What do you love about your industry, field or line of work? @atimelesscelebration . Love this bouquet?

Guests notice the details. Individually tied bunches of lavender at each place setting are a beautiful way to set your wedding apart. Soft European-style details, cotton linens, and dried lavender with cascading clematis for an elegant place-setting.

Back in the day when we still had time to blog we always had a feature called "Tips on Tuesday" where we would feature all kinds of tips and advice for our couples and flower loving friends. Well we may have gotten away from blogging for now, but I just had to share my Hellebores tip since they are really going strong this season.🌸🌱 Anyone who knows me will tell you I LOVE reviving flowers, and this one batch was not looking so hot. So I got a bowl of scorching hot water, cut all the stems with a sharp knife at an angle and then split the bottom of the stem again. I let these sit for a few hours and to my delight-they perked up!  Happy Hellebores! 😁💕🌸🌱

When Bryan and I purchased this historic house everyone questioned our decision, but honestly it has been the perfect fit for our family and business! 🏡💕💐Take this day for example. It was a very cold March afternoon, but I really needed to get some florals made up. Rather than work in the chilly and drafty studio, I easily turned the toasty home office area into my studio for the day.

I love this picture because @rebeccahaleyphotography captured an honest moment of me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My hair is not done. My makeup is minimal. My outfit, although you can't see it here, doesn't match at all..shocker. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And that is exactly who I am. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I don't wear cute outfits, but I rock the power ones that I own. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My hair doesn't get more than 10 minutes a day from me because...it's hair, and my energy is better spent elsewhere during my morning getting ready routine. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Makeup annoys me on a daily basis, and I've recently learned I have beautiful skin and eyes. So out with it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And this smile on my face is real. I'm laughing at how silly a curated imagery can be. I was worried she would photograph my face "looking like this"... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But THAT is silly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Because "looking like this" is looking like me. And I love that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you can’t tell, I’ve been doing a lot of growth work this year. Being a member of #The12 and learning from @jackicarr (Queen and greatest of all time) has done wonders for me and La Rue. The intentions I’m setting are ambitious. But it’s all working. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s only March, but I’m excited about all these new business ideas brewing in my head, getting clear about some stuff that’s been blocking me, and learning how to love myself for exactly who I am. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Everything you ever need to be happy is inside of you. In your heart. In your core. In all that is you.” Truer words could not be said 🙌🏼 #smallbusinesslove #newness #growthroughwhatyougothrough #growthquotes #selflovefirst #boundariesarebeautiful #nomakeupneeded #thatfloristlife

Waking up to a little snow this morning, and headed back over to @forsythcountryclub to finish up tent decor for an oyster roast tonight. We’ve got our gloves and fleece lined jeans on, ready for a brisk morning in the cold. Floral design is labor intensive, back breaking work, that most people view with rose colored glasses.

SOMEHOW I MANAGED TO MOVE OUT OF LOS ANGELES to this miraculous place I now call home. I took this on my way home from the flower market this morning about 1 mile from our farm. It still is mind blowing to me that I get to live surrounded by wax flower farms, with amazing clean air and our own little slice of heaven in the country. 5 YEARS AGO I thought this and having my own floral design company was an unattainable dream. And yet here I am today LIVING IT! So I just want to remind you guys to dream and dont be afraid to dream big! You have to start by DREAMING IT, so you can start working towards making those dreams your new reality. I am living proof that you can do it!
