Merry Christmas !

Bella Garden Florals is now over one year old and what a year it has been. When Tom and I decided to take this journey, we had no idea where it was going to lead us. In the beginning, Tom graciously turned over his garage. He built shelves and put in a heater and floral coolers and supplied me with everything I need to become a floral designer. We have had a wonderful year and we feel very blessed with the success of our new venture. This past year we have had the privilege of designing flowers for your special occasions. You have allowed us to be a part of the birth of new baby’s, we have had the pleasure of designing corsages and boutonnieres for your children’s school dances, and we have helped you decorate your homes with our silk and dried wreaths and arrangements. You have also included us in one of the most important days of your lives by allowing us to design the flowers for your weddings. Not a bad first year, we can’t wait to see what next year brings!

I would like to thank my husband Tom for always encouraging me and for sacrificing so much so that I can follow my hearts desire.

To dad...I hope I make you proud.

Bella Garden Florals would like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and blessings for the New Year.

The 12 Days of Christmas

I have been working on a special order for one of Tom's co-workers and what a sweetheart he is. He wanted to surprise his girlfriend with flowers every day for twelve days. The first day is one white rose for the "1st day of Christmas" followed by two white roses the second day for the "2nd day of Christmas"...you know how the song goes. As the days go by the white roses will fade out and will be replaced with red roses, greenery and baby's breath all the way up to one dozen red roses on the 12th day of Christmas. I attached to each rose what the meaning of the line in the song is for each day. What a wonderful idea he came up with and what a lucky girlfriend he has to have such a thoughtful guy. This is one reason why I love my job !!

Christmas Centerpieces

Our Christmas centerpieces. The hurricane lamp centerpiece was a special order made for our very good friends. The candle centerpiece was made from live fresh greens. Noble fir, incense cedar and eucalyptus were used in this design. The scent is amazing !
