Anna and Joe’s May wedding was full of color; Copper, orange, yellow teal, purple, and a sea of greens. Giant geometric shapes hung over the dance floor and Spin Entertainment kept the dance floor full! This was a fun wedding! Fun for vendors and guests. Rachel Lord of Alaska Stems brought her beautiful tulips up from Homer as well as her arranging skills to assist us with the florals. I discovered I love to make copper shapes even if it gives me blisters on my fingers. Erin and Matt of Blomma Designs crafted an awesome ceremony backdrop I secretly wanted to take home with me. Midnight Sun Cakery rocked the dessert table with gluten free desserts. Lauren Roberts did a great job of documenting it all in photos( I snuck in a few photos of my own here too). Orange ranunculus you couldn’t be more perfect!
We pour our heart and souls into our place. We have this place to share it, the flowers, the food, the view, the feeling that the city is far away. The Farm to Table Feast this year was graced again by fantastic weather. There was a tent, but no need for it other than the coziness factor. After the day’s labors I still managed to stay awake until almost two in the morning around the “after party” camp fire. Thoughts of the pig falling off of the spit into the fire for a few moments or the camp stove on fire were long gone. My heart was full from sharing three things I love, this piece of earth I call my little farm, a long table of people feasting, and my flowers. Thank you to Chris, Margaret, Michael, Carrie, Taylor, Cayley, Emily, Deb, my mother, and all the other people who agree to be part of my crazy ideas. An extra big thank you to Michael, the man in charge of the pig! All of you help put this smile on my face.
We will be closed Friday for a special event. If you are in need of some beautiful blooms I would recommend picking up some Alaska grown tulips from Alaska Stems at New Sagaya City Market or stopping into Rose Hip Nail Salon for Simple Petal’s pop up shop on Saturday. If you placed a Mother’s Day order with us for pick up on Sunday we will be open 10-1. Happy Mother’s Day! Wishing everyone a beautiful weekend.
