It was truly a pleasure to transform a drab tent into a classy venue for a friend's special event. Thank you @Akila O' Grady for entrusting us to assist you and Ceci in executing your vision of Ceci's soiree.

2020 has been kind of Grinch-y, right? Wishing you all the very best for the holidays and so much hope for a brighter 2021!

It was so much fun being able to design and create once again for a special event after months of "hiatus".

The most effortless way to decorate is to use what nature provides! The perfect color palette and oh so delicious!

Do you need something to do while being confined in the home? How about making your own Easter bonnet using what you have in the house? This one I used my daughter's old hat ( from almost 23 years ago), silk flowers I had available, and a hot glue gun. I have now an instant Easter decoration...Stay safe and healthy everyone!

It is not quite often that one gets to design and create the ambiance for the bridal shower last year and this year's baby shower for the celebrant who went to preschool with your son and later danced ballet with your daughter. Thank you @Shannon Curry Somerville for entrusting us once again to create your vision of Stephanie's jungle themed baby shower @Belle Haven Country Club. It was truly a fun event !

Oh what a night! We successfully transformed the historic Grange in Great Falls into a winter wonderland (on a shoestring)...Celebrate Great Falls Foundation Wineter Wonderland and a Frosty Beer Tasting 2020

The question is... would we be able to transform an otherwise drab historic place into a winter wonderland for an event this Saturday on a shoestring budget? Stay tuned...

HappyThanksgiving to all especially to everyone who trusted us to help create his/ her vision of a special event this year! Utilized some of my garden greenery to create this arrangement.

We had a busy weekend. Had the first opportunity to design and create a "kababayan's" mom's 80th birthday celebration at the Lake House in Reston yesterday and created floral arrangements for a bridal shower today. It was a fun birthday party ... lots of food, singing, and dancing.

300 balloons & counting! Can I tie them to my roof rack?! 😂

This past Sunday, I had the pleasure of creating floral centerpieces for a family event. I was worried that the flowers won't look great since I brought them from VA to NJ. But Thank God, they survived!

Had the pleasure of designing and creating floral centerpieces/decorations for the event at Eddie Merlot's. The Merlot room is beautiful , so in this case less is more.

I met Malou 3 years ago through a mutual friend, who brought her to volunteer in the garden. Somehow I talked her into helping me transform the entire church into an undersea adventure. Ever wish you were born with two sets of hands? After several weeks working together, we were beginning to mirror each other and anticipating needs without needing to speak! We decided we’d found our perfect partner to launch a business with, that we’d individually toyed with starting... the rest is history! 😊

Even though we are technically closed for the summer, we are keeping ourselves busy! This is what we’ve been up to the last couple of days... wedding flowers for a friend and a Garden-to-Table event at one of our community outreach projects.

You don’t have to buy anything to make stunning flower arrangements! Just go out in your own backyard and voila! Sunflower, cilantro blooms, and spearmint sprigs.

We had the honor & privilege of designing & coordinating the wedding for this sweet couple last weekend (the bride, I have watched grow up in my church for the past 15years, so this was a very special wedding to work on). Photos taken by my husband, David Lathrop. We’ll hopefully get some photos of our design work posted in the next week or two (we didn’t get a chance to take our own photos)!

A love and locals tasting event with a touch of class. Transforming the historic Grange Hall for this event was a fun project to do.

Working Godzilla into our design work is a first for us, but you’ll never grow as artists without pushing yourself out of your comfort zone!
