August Update

Flowers and chocolate anyone?  We're going to have some very exciting updates here soon, but here's a quick sample of what's we've been cranking out.  Above is a delicious summer treat: sunflower, orange lilies, oregonia, ti leaf, bear grass and oh yeah, CANDY!  Hammond's chocolates are absolutely delicious and we've got them!

I'm certain this cute get-well-soon gift did its job.  How can you not feel better looking at these beautiful blooms?  There's sunflower, pink gerbera, orange lily, purple alstroemeria, a bit of green hydrangea and some Queen Anne's lace.

This bubble bowl was just huge in person, and had beauty going all around!

This dish garden was put together for a longtime customer who needed a get-well-soon present.  She wanted succulents because they require less care than most plants.  I was quite disappointed we had to sell it because I wanted it in my home!  Well, I guess I'll just have to make more.

This rather unique item is actually the most clever way to return your neighbor's things you borrowed and forgot to return.  A regular customer was cleaning out their cupboard and was horrified to find an electric skillet they had borrowed months before.  Returning it filled with flowers remedied the guilt and potential hard feelings, and also made for one of the stranger things we've put and arrangement in!  Frank even incorporated the cord and control box into the design!
