Cocktail Napkins for a Garden Party

napkins

Perfect for a Spring Garden Party. Aren’t these too cute!? A little crown topiary over the good piece of advice- “Keep Calm and Garden On”. The linen hemstitched napkins are 6″ square, packaged as a set of 4, and available in all of my designs. Express yourself! For ordering information click here.




Highlights from the 2015 Philadelphia Flower Show

IMG_1002Lights, Camera, Bloom! The theme this year was Celebrating the Movies and well, the world’s #1 event did not disappoint. The partnership of PHS with Disney/Pixar produced quite a spectacle with a lot of WOW factor. I was very happy to see so many young families walking through the show… starting the tradition. Many customers that I spoke with had grown up attending the show and this year had brought along their own children.

Now, the whole princess thing can be a bit much I know and I was concerned when I heard all of the movies represented were Disney… but the displays were so creative, sophisicated and artful.

An interpretation of Frozen  IMG_1047

Enjoyed Burke Brothers design… they incorporated real chickens who where quite a hit.

This garden was my favorite, I think. The Mulan inspired garden.

IMG_1050

It was sublime.

IMG_1052  IMG_1054Loved the ceramic fish swimming above the pond and in and out of the irises.

IMG_1055  IMG_1057How gorgeous is that?! Can’t I do something like this on my deck?

IMG_1058

Mustn’t forget Never Never Land and the Lost Boys.

IMG_1059

Do you see Hook’s hat? Tinkerbell was in there too!

IMG_1061

Lots of orchids.

IMG_1063This design was so creative and the photos won’t do it justice. Imagine that the rope line in the photo is the line from a boat with an anchor at the other end. The vertical beams are a dock and we have an underwater view with the fish swimming by. Clever, right? J Downend Landscaping did the design based on the movie Nemo.

IMG_1065

Do you see the fishing boat at the top with the oar?

IMG_1067

A Winnie-the-Pooh inspired landscape. Very sweet. Made me think of the Bean.

IMG_1077

IMG_1078

This landscape was based on the original Parent Trap movie. Loved that film.
