Summer of 2015 had a long cool start allowing annuals and perennials to grow bigger than ever! In planting quality blooms, often times we depend on the cooperation of weather more than the plant itself. Fortunately, high temperatures through August and September coupled with fertilizing and proper watering, have yielded tremendously large, gorgeous blossoms blooming through the end of October. Blooms of this size will transform any outdoor living space or entryway from normal to exquisite and unforgettable.

There is no better way to finish the planting season than with voluptuous planters.  Outdoor containers offer an exceptional way to create a unique outdoor space.  They add the necessary pop of color to the veranda, extend a friendly invitation to the front entryway, or serenity on the terrace. The bounds are limitless when planting in containers your style.

The hostess of this holiday party came to us with an intriguing concept; she wanted to incorporate her personal Christmas in the City village into her dining table centerpiece.  Using rolling mounds of snow illuminated from beneath, white ball ornaments nestled throughout, irridescent snowflakes glistening across the top of the snow, and fragrant sprays of fresh juniper nestled around each village piece, we brought her Christmas in the City village to life. The unique Christmas scene was used to trigger fond memories of past traditions and promote warm holiday sentiments. By featuring all white colored flowers including roses, South American hydrangea blooms, fragrant peonies and slender clusters of blooming narcissus bulbs, we were able to create a wintery, white wonderland and truly bring to life an already nostalgic scene.

DSC_0133.JPGSpring traditionally marks the end of the boring drab that accompanies each winter.  Full of color and fresh new starts, spring is a perfect time to try some new design ideas. Try emphasizing the character of your home by incorporating some lime greens or oranges; it can truly make all the difference in the world. If vivid colors aren't the road you want to travel, we also suggest new containers. Resurrecting an old pot or vase can be just the remedy to add new flair to a design to give you the subtle change you may need this spring.
