Favorite moment

Last weekend marked the end of our 2017 wedding calendar. We are done with weddings until the Spring and how we'll miss this work! It's hard to believe how many flowers, hours, and miles that have accumulated this year but looking back, it's so wonderful to see how far we've come. This isn't an easy journey, doing flowers because there are no guarantees when it comes to Mother Nature. We're so grateful for our brides for putting their faith in us and trusting us with their visions. And in the spirit of nostalgia and thankfulness, are sharing a photo of owner, Lydia with a favorite bride and bouquet delivery.

From Lydia:

"This photo is extra special to me because it captures one of my favorite duties as florist ~ delivering the bridal bouquet. Almost always during hair and makeup! I present a bride a bouquet to make sure it's picture perfect and matches her vision before heading off to set-up the ceremony. It's our final moment before she is married, on a day that has been planned and discussed for months and months. A surreal feeling when it actually happens.

This bride came to me at the last minute and we worked out a specific vision quickly, with no time to waste! We first met 3 weeks prior to the wedding day and because of their busy work schedule had limited time to communicate. I felt confident that I understood her vision and when we realized I had pulled it off we both got teary-eyed. Such a special moment I will cherish and how sweet of Erin Krespan to capture it on camera!"

How sweet is that? Already we are looking forward to more magic in 2018 and are booking all weddings now! Be sure to secure the date with us by March 1st for Spring/Summer and June 1st for Fall/Winter weddings as certain dates will be unavailable. Destination events should be secured no less than six months in advance.

Call 443-480-6119 or email info@floraboh.com to schedule your consultation. Looking forward to delivering more flower dreams and smiles in the year ahead.

Dreaming of Dahlias

Spring is here for certain and we're so grateful for the land and opportunity to grow dahlias. This summer/fall producer is one of our favorite blossoms, a proud usher of high summer and heat waves. We planted ours a few weeks ago and are starting to see progress! Below is a photo of the first dahlia buds this year at our urban plot at Pop!Farm.

This year we're growing dinner plate dahlias in that widely adored blush-cream hue again. Just for fun we sourced some unique varieties to test out and some more vibrant colors for Fall harvesting. Our neighbors are expecting quite a show! Like the South Americans they are, we have to wait until the dog days of summer to really see them bloom. Dreaming of summer time and dahlias until then. Wishing you an endless start to summer!
