styled winter shoot

There is nothing better than a friend calling to ask if you can put together something lovely for an adorable couple - it's so great to be able to share a little floral piece or two and hope it makes someone's day!  Bonus when that friend happens to be an incredibly talented photographer and there are gorgeous photos to inspire afterward!  Thank you so much Dayna of Dayna Mae Photography  - this winter couple is making me all kinds of cozy!  Perfect doses of fun and joy and sweet and romantic, a festive splash of red on a perfect wintry Michigan day.  These are so warm and perfect and please see more images and Dayna's adorable story from the day here.

President's house flowers

It is such a privilege to create flowers for the UM President's House.  Living in Ann Arbor, my husband and I always explain to friends and family how this place seems so special because it has the ease of a small town but a disproportionate amount of neat things going on - art, culture, sport - amazing people from around the world thinking and doing amazing things - it's really quite special.  And I love getting to feel like I'm a part of those special things going on in Ann Arbor when I get to bring flowers for events at the President's House.  Here are just a few recent favorites!  

This bouquet of parrot tulips and orchids was for the dinner guest of honor.

Zinnias and peppers!

Throwback to when these were all in season, and we created these bright and colorful arrangements for a joy-filled wedding shower.  I loved creating these arrangements with local zinnias of so many colors, sunflowers, mini ornamental peppers on the vine, and a host of local foliages.  It is so wonderful to be able to work with fantastic local farmers to get beautiful blooms like these! wedding shower centerpiece decor
