One stand out moment from my 15th year in business was working for my alma mater, The University of Vermont, this season.

August Wedding in Vermont at The Ponds

By now it may be obvious that I L-O-V-E a white, pink, peach and burgundy palette. I mean love it. The addition of deep plum/burgundy takes a classic wedding palette and just adds a touch of contrast and depth. Susanna and Andreas were married this August in Burlington, VT and then headed up to The

Sophisticated Elegance: Vermont Wedding Flowers

I LOVE this wedding. When the bride presented this color palette to me almost a year ago, I was tickled. I could not wait to design the flowers for Trista and Mike’s destination wedding at The Mountaintop Inn. This couple is simply too cool.

When Spring Comes To Vermont

When Vermonters are ready for spring we are believers. We believe in warmer weather. We have to believe because a 65 degree day in March or April can easily be followed by a foot of snow…just to keep us humble. When spring finally comes to Vermont, you know it. How? Easy. People wear shorts &

My Week With Weeks: Françoise Weeks in VT

I do flowers. I don’t know what you do for work (or pleasure), but I do flowers (for both work & pleasure). I’ve enjoyed this work for so long it’s hard to remember a time before I had my hands dirty. Most professions have education & advanced training, but in the flower world these opportunities
