The holiday season has arrived and it has become a bit like the North Pole at Meadowsweet with orders for holiday wreaths and arrangements coming in. We're all working like little elves to fill the orders and decorate the store as well. We're gearing up for the infamous "Black Friday" when the holiday shopping and decorating season will officially begin. We will be up to our elbows in ribbons and bows from now until December 24.
I thought I would share one of our newest designs because it is a bit different from the traditional Christmas wreath. This one is done with bronze glittery hydrangeas, ornaments and peacock feathers. I just love the look, and I think I just might design a matching garland for the mantle. Yes, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and I love it!
My passion for flowers began as a little girl when my grandmother inspired me to plant my first flower garden. I remember her growing breathtaking zinnias in huge old tomato cans sitting on her porch. She didn't have money for decorative planters, so she just used her imagination. I would love to have those old vintage cans with zinnias in glorious colors spilling from them. That passion for flowers and designing with them has followed me my entire life, and eventually was the inspiration behind starting my own business and opening a flower shop 10 years ago when Meadowsweet was born. Today, my days are spent creating beautiful floral arrangements and wreaths, and helping others beautify their homes on the North Shore of Long Island where I live
