Floral design is an art form that is meant to be a feast for all senses. Rather than simply going off inspiration images you may have seen on pinterest for your event, we invite all our clients into our studio for a fully immersive Wedding Design Workshop. At this appointment, we will help you select from hundred of fresh, fragrant blooms we’ve ordered specifically in your style + color palette. You’ll work alongside the design team as we create mock ups of your bouquet + centerpieces together. You will be a part of the design process! Plus, there’s champagne! These workshops are complimentary to all booked clients.
We celebrate and welcome all love in our studio and support a work environment that believes #loveislove and #equalrightsforall regardless of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), ability or sexual orientation
We Love Mother Earth
We are committed to minimizing waste in the event industry. Our packaging is made entirely from 100% recyclable materials and contains zero plastics.
In 2019, we composted approximately 80% of our flowers waste at Snipes Farm + Nursery in Morrisville, Pa and in 2020, we hope to increase that to 90%.
We opt for alternatives to floral foam and by 2024 we aim to be entirely foam free!
We offer a floral repurposing program to all our clients via Forget Me Knot Flowers, a non profit that will take your event flowers at the end of the night, repurpose into bedside bouquets and deliver to area womens shelters, homes and senior facilities. This program has a nominal fee and is tax deductible. Ask us about ways you can make your wedding more eco-friedly!
Commitment to Local
Our love for our flower farmers runs deep. Buying local not only helps to support our communities, it has a major impact on the carbon footprint the floral industry leaves on the world. Did you know roughly 40,00 boxes of flowers from all over the globe arrive daily? That’s approximately seven flights a day in just flower imports alone.
The #slowflowers movement is a one we’re proud to be a part of and we’re so thankful to all our flower farmers for their passion, hard work and dedication to the craft; Jig Bee Flower Farm, Laughing Lady Flower Farm, Tooth of the Lion, The Farm at Oxford, Cultivating Joy and The Bloom Farm to name a few.
