Working Designer Wednesday: Mixed Bag

Oct 7, 2015

It’s Wednesday again…already?! A few things that are on my mind this week…

1. Love the ingredients tag placed on each bridal bouquet by Noeleen Ross of The Basement Florist. It reads: “Your bouquet contains…” (image courtesy of Binky Nixon Photography)

2. Don’t miss your chance to explore the Flower House in Detroit on October 16, 17 & 18.  For just 3 days, a team of 27 florists from across the country (and Canada!) are going to fill a formerly abandoned Detroit house with American-grown fresh flowers and living plants. When the exhibition is over, the house will be responsibly deconstructed to make way for a flower farm for pot & box (a floral business owned by Flower House founder Lisa Waud). I’m excited to watch as so many special flower friends come together to work on this project. The public is invited to explore what promises to be an epic installation by some of the industry’s finest floral artists. (images courtesy of Heather Saunders Photography)
