a year in review

This posting pretty much brought me to tears. Please read and then I'll explain why.

I love and miss these talented girls so much. Many of the florals in the pictures they included in their "The Best of Two Thousand and Ten" post were designed by The Floral Lab. I have been fortunate enough to work alongside Ashlyn and Heather over the years. True friendships have developed. We've laughed. We've cried. They are so genuine and creative, fun and fresh. They make me a better floral designer. Here's to an amazing 2011 girls!

Catch Carter and Cook at HITCHED at The Ace Hotel in Palm Springs. They'll be blending army chic with ballerina glam. No doubt it will attract attention!


Random pics of pretty

I know I've been slacking in the blog postings lately, my last being last year! Lots of weddings over the summer {I did post new pics on the website} and a move east has attributed to the delay. Don't fret - lots of exciting things are on the horizon and will be documented on this much neglected blog. The website is in the process of getting an update also. People of NYC have to know The Floral Lab is here and ready to design lots of pretty.

I was flipping through pictures on my iphone and found these. They may have been tweeted but never made the website.

Bougainvillea clippings from the yard contained in a vintage glass toothpick holder. My favorite.

Dahlia from the farmers market.

Centerpieces for a friend's baby shower on the farm .
