Flower of the Month ~ Aster
Aster'Asters are named after the Greek word for "star." Asters have a star-shaped flower head similar to that of a daisy. Like the stars in the sky, asters are found abundantly throughout the globe as they grow in a wide range of climates from the tropics to cooler regions in the North.'

HomecomingOne of our favorite things to design is corsages.  We love talking to the girls, finding out their tastes, style, and a little about them, and then creating something unique just for them.  This year we have several new designs of bracelets to choose from.  We are also doing more of the beautiful wire work you see here.  We are working on a special section of our website that will feature our creations.  Be sure to watch ourFacebook page for our "Best Dressed" contest.  Our homecoming couples can compete to win fab prizes and our Facebook fans get to pick the winner!

What Inspires Us~ 
One of our favorite things is a trip to Milan Il, to attend Bonnette's Fall Open House.  It's a day filled with inspiration.  From the design team that puts on the show, to the flower coolers bursting at the seams with flowers, to talking to other florists to get new ideas, it's a day we long for all summer long.  I firmly believe that education is the key to a great florist, any class we come across we jump at the chance to attend.  For this year's show the theme was "inspiration", and we received a lot of it.  To see some of the pictures we took you can find our album here.   

Fall Is Coming ~ Are you Ready?
Fall Cart
Fall is coming, is your house ready?  It's more then just about bringing those plants in to protect them from the frost.  It's also about decorating the inside too!  We can help with that .  We have a wide selection of silk wreaths, silk arrangements, and home decor items to help you get ready for the fall season.
