Flowers say a lot. They celebrate. They heal. They refresh the soul and make you breathe. Horticultural therapy happens naturally if you like to garden, and a handful of flowers or a desktop arrangement is another way of spreading the love. My floral designs are unique odes to the Here-and-Now, sampling the seasons in the gardens and landscapes around us. Each bouquet -wherever it lands- delivers a deep breath of garden fragrance, a dance of color and movement, and a quick escape into the geometry and texture of flowers. All flowers in our arrangements are either homegrown or sourced from other local farmers using sustainable growing methods, and when that’s not possible I buy American grown blooms from local wholesalers.
In the summer of 2015 I grew more flowers than vegetables for my own wedding, starting me on a path to learn the art and business of floral design and flower farming. I now grow a variety of hardy perennials, herbs and brilliant annuals for cutting, and soon the heirloom roses, woody shrubs and berry bushes will be fair game as well. My floral designs have a garden-inspired aesthetic and include many oft-overlooked perennials and herbs. As I find my niche in this new field of design & working with plants, connecting with other growers and designers in the Slow Flowers and sustainable floristry movements has validated my own ethical stance on producing and using sustainable flowers.
I offer hand-tied bouquets and arrangements for everyday and special events in the Bellingham and Seattle areas, made to order and as a subscription service. I can also style an entire event space or gussy up your own garden for a party or backyard wedding!
This is how I get my flowers to you:
BOUQUETS & ARRANGEMENTS: Garden style bouquets, posies, single stems or single species bundles, centerpieces, table settings, hand-tied bouquets, wreaths, garlands and flower crowns — all are available by order for parties, weddings, dinners, memorials and events. Planted containers and potted plants are also available to order or rent.
Get your flowers! 206.351.9407 or email email@example.com.
SUBSCRIPTIONS: Give or receive a bouquet of lush, fragrant blooms delivered to your door 1x, 2x or 4x a month, year-round or summer-only. All bouquets will be “grower’s choice” but we welcome special requests (please notify us at least 2 days in advance of the scheduled pick-up/delivery if you would like any specific flowers, colors, shape, etc). Pricing starts at $25/bouquet picked up, or $35/bouquet delivered to your home or office in the Bellingham Area. Availability in Seattle is subject to volume of requests. More info in this introductory video here.
WORKSHOPS: Spring, Summer & Fall flower workshops will take place at local small businesses in Bellingham and Seattle. Watch the blog for updates or sign up to be notified below!
Please contact us for special orders, wedding/event inquiries, delivery questions, and to be added to our workshops mailing list:
NOTE: Many bouquets will include edible flowers and herbs that you can add to your salads or brew into a tea when you are done enjoying the arrangement. We will make note of the ingredients in every bouquet, but you are ultimately responsible for identifying what flowers are OK to eat and we will not be held liable for any irritations, allergic reactions or side effects of contact or ingestion. Any poisonous flowers such as foxglove will be identified for you. All of the flowers, herbs and foliage that we grow here in our micro homestead flower farm are raised organically and we try to ensure that any supplemental materials we use are local and un-sprayed; but off-season availability makes it difficult to fulfill this all of the time. Please let us know if an arrangement needs to be 100% spray-free, or if certain blooms are intended for use on/near food.
