Floratize your asana

Nick’s mom Faith and her husband, John spent last weekend with me as we attended a yoga workshop taught by Anand at 305 Yoga in Sunny Isles, FL. Because Faith is a gorgeous yogi and also the owner of Flow Yoga Pilates & Personal Training I chose to floratize her body with her permission as she gracefully transitioned into different yoga positions.

I hope you will be just as amazed and impressed as I am !

Nothing beats a downward facing dog with a hand tied spiral bouquet sitting on your toosh 🙂

Thank you Faith for being my beautiful model.

Baltimore Baby’s Breath Flower Crowns

Yesterday I flew in for a very special event, my Mom-Mom’s 80th surprise birthday party which was held at Squires, one of her favorite restaurants. This is the first time flying with just a carry on and no floral knives, wire etc. because I wanted to free my brain from creating. The goal was to just be for the next 2 days so I can return home back with a clear, strong mind, eager to design at the end of the week.

It would be very “unlike” myself to show up without flowers so I carried a few flowers to wear on the plane with me.

It seems that many are loving the trend that will never go away, Flower Crowns. DIY Brides love Baby’s Breath Flower Crowns because they are simple to make and look Boho Chic and super cute on flower girls for a wedding. More females are wearing tiny flower crowns on the regular though which I personally think is wonderful.

Below are photos of the flower crowns I created for my God-child and my sisters fiancĂ©’s child. Toward the middle of the party I noticed the flower crowns being shared from head to head to wear 🙂

In conclusion , I seal off my evening and this post with a little Fallen Angel (Floral Style)

Seeds of a Sister: National Sister Day!

While every day should be National Watermelon day and  National Sister’s Day, we enter the beginning of August celebrating these two events.

Watermelon is refreshing any day of the summer so why not add it to more of your food dishes, like salads. Make Fruit smoothies by  adding in pineapple and banana or your other fruit favorites.

Experiment and have fun. P.S. more seeds = more growth !

Add flax, chia or hemp seeds to your watermelon dishes 🙂

Now, for the real fun stuff. As most of you know or should know, I am a fraternal triplet. We are miracle babies for sure, being born 2 months premature and only 1 minute apart. My sisters and I share a tight bond that no one will ever be able to break and being a triplet takes it to a whole other level if you ask. No we cannot read each others mind but we can read each other pretty well when the other is feeling down or even through happy times. Yes we fight just like any other siblings.

The above photo with us wearing Daisy Rings will be updated sooner than later as we show off another “flowers to wear” creation.

It amazes me sometimes how much we’ve all grown into beautiful young ladies and I would not trade our friendship for the world.

This seemed appropriate having been around the funeral business all our lives.

Now give your sibling a call, go to lunch, SEND FLOWERS and just be grateful.

“I’m getting married & want BLUE flowers !”

Pump your brakes … NOT ME !

I’ve heard this quite a few times since I became a floral designer and while there are not a wide range of Blue Flowers found in nature, there are some such as the Phaleanopsis Orchid or Dendrobium Orchid that are stem dyed to create that blue hue with a touch of purple most brides are going after. A couple other blue flowers are Blue Hydrangea and Blue Hybrid Delphinium.
