It's always two words...Preston Bailey.
I love that basket with the roses.
I always wondered why some roses never opened. It wasn't my fault. Great tips. I saw a floral designer using a blow dryer on flowers. Must be for this reason.
This was perfect for me. You are so right. Love is in the details. I need to get that book for a friend of mine, it looks great!
I am drawn to dark colors, too. However, the winter is so sad for me, I don't think I should paint my rooms dark. I love the idea of matching flower colors to your room.
It's a perfect match. Congrats!
Oh how I would love that huge basket of fruit and that hammock. I am sending you an email.

Perfection!
The best advice I took from your site was to consider carnations. Since there has been a drought in my area, my roses are not happy...I may have lost a bush or two. Great post.
This is just stunning. I love this attention to detail, too.
So well said, Mimi. I think I will stop and smell those roses.

Mimi, your tips are always great. I would like to know if garden flowers need different care when making arrangements?

I just scrolled through a lot of posts looking for this one. If you don't mind, I am going to post it on my blog tomorrow? Someone asked me a question about hydrangea's and I gave them this link.
It is big wedding and prom time, no doubt...oh yeah, and Mother's day. Miss ya!

I could not figure out how it was assembled. I thought it would have been floral tape, but now I see the pins. I think this is stunning, and I have never seen or heard of this before you blogged about it. Thanks!!
I just went over to Neil Whittaker,the UK designer...wow! this is so unique. I am finding myself so interested in the. I can't wait to see how it is made?

I am fascinated by this one. I have never heard of it...and I can't wait to see how it is made. Seems like a lot of labor.
Mimi, you are the BEST! Thanks, I feel the same wonderfulness about your blog.
I love purple!
Hands down, #4!!

I have had the pleasure of smelling all but Stock. In fact, I have never heard of it. That is so interesting about the fragrant ones not lasting as long. Your salesman is a bit rude with that remark...no kidding!
I love all of them. Around my home, the deer will come along and eat the tops.

Mimi, you said that so well. That car was probably leased, by the way. You say "our" business...who is your partner? Are you the only one who writes this blog? I think your arrangements are stunning, by the way. I would let you do my wedding, only I'm already married.
It reminds me of the Chelsea Flower Show, in the UK. I went once....and loved it!
I just love the look of this.
