After a successful and busy Holiday Party and Winter Wedding season, we’re excited to be moving into the spring season again! Not only are we hungry for the warmer weather, but we’re looking forward to the exciting trends and styles we see each spring.

Speaking of trends, every Friday, we’ll  take a look at what’s trending with wedding flowers. On Flower Fridays, we’ll take a peek in to Nannette’s Floral and decor workshop, where imaginations are brought to life by colorful ideas, themes and the talent of our preferred florist, Nannette York.
