We see floral design as an immersive experience. Our clients are invited into our studio to see, feel and smell their wedding flowers in order to make appropriate selections on color and style rather than simply going off pictures from the internet. We strive to create gorgeous florals for your wedding day with as little as an environmental impact as possible. While we improve upon our sustainability each year, currently we compost 80% of our flower waste through Snipes Farm and Education Center. We do not use plastic on any of our packaging materials. All our delivery boxes and paper are made from 100% recyclable materials.
Local Farm Fresh
We strive to source our blooms from local flower farms as much as we can. You can have peace of mind knowing some of your blooms were sowed and harvested on local land by hands that are passionate about the flowers they grow, mostly all chemical free. Upon delivery of your bouquets, you will receive a card detailing which of your blooms were locally grown and a brief intro into the farmer that grew them.
A huge thank you to our Philadelphia area flower farmers who help make this mission of ours possible; Jig-Bee Flower Farm, Laughing Lady Flower Farm, The Farm at Oxford, Cultivating Joy Flowers, Marsh Gibbon Gardens and Tooth of the Lion Farm & Apothecary.
Wedding Flower Donation Program
Beginning in 2019, we will be offering a floral re-purposing program option to all our clients. Your wedding florals are picked up at the conclusion of then event, re designed the following day and then hand delivered to patients and residents in hospitals, women’s shelters and care facilities throughout the area. Please inquire about the fee for this program as it varies per event.
This helps us reduce waste in our industry, bring some added smiles to those in our community and pay it forward for the all the love + support we have received as small business over the years.
