Wedding at The Round Barn, Flowers by Alison Ellis

August Wedding at The Round Barn

I never take a beautiful wedding day for granted. It was a truly lovely day for this wedding at The Round Barn in Waitsfield, VT.

Featured here are some of the most beautiful anemones. I rarely rely on anemones to come in “just so perfectly”, but lucky for me, they came in 2 weeks in a row….just so perfectly.

You’ll also see ranunculus, roses, stock, brunnia, dusty miller, dahlias, snapdragons, fresh mint and sedum from my garden,

The cows came running down the hill just as I was about to set up the arbor….they hung out for a while by the fence while the wedding party took photos. It was quintessential Vermont.

The Round Barn truly is a gem; a beautiful barn, a beautiful setting…and it was a pleasure to flower it up for Hilary and Josh’s wedding!

Floral Artistry’s 16th Season!

2017 marks my sixteenth season in business! I must say that 16 feels pretty sweet. Each year in business is an adventure. I never take for granted the trust that my clients bestow upon me; being a part of a couple’s wedding day is a tremendous honor. Every season brings new opportunities to bloom and

Faux Spring, Real Roots

It’s early April in Vermont and after some snow overnight on Friday, it has been BEAUTIFUL weather the past 2 days. So beautiful, in fact, that I could almost mistake it for spring! I loved this spring day! I hung laundry on the clothesline, raked leaves, scoped out the scene in the perennial beds to

Homemade Valentine

A valentine is defined as “an artistic work, message or token expressing affection for something or someone.” I know Valentine’s Day can be divisive (and a lot of pressure!)….so in the true spirit of Valentine’s Day I’m sharing a homemade valentine to one of my favorite flowers, ranunculus. In 1923 my grandfather collected and pressed

Some of my
