What can I expect the bouquet will look like?

Each day brings new seasonal blooms here on the Farm. 

The Sunshine Bouquet includes a combination of approximately 7 different flowers, greenery and herbs with approximately 20 stems in a market style bouquet.  From spiky to airy, from bright yellow to perfectly pink, a unique combination of forms, textures and colors come in every hand crafted market style Sunshine Bouquet. 

The Sunflower Surprise Bouquet includes 5 – 7 beautiful sunflowers accompanied by colorful airy accent flowers, greenery and herbs that will fill your room with wonderful scents and a feeling of sunshine all day long. 

I harvest the flowers and prepare your bouquet to order in my workshop.  The bouquet is delivered in a vase and includes a personalized card and packet of flower food mix.


Why aren’t there pictures of the exact bouquets on your site?  

Each day brings new seasonal blooms here on the Farm which means my choice of beautiful blooms to share with you changes day to day.  

We are blessed in this area to have a host of wonderful designers and florists to serve our community, what sets my market style bouquets apart is just this – I grow what I share with you and can let my imagination run wild when it comes to combining textures, shapes, colors and scents for your bouquet. I’ve been known to include bright currant tomatoes and blooming runner beans as accents and maybe include a clove of recently cured garlic to feature the Farm’s bounty.  Now what florist is going to have this available?!?


How long will the bouquet last?

Your market style bouquet will include a variety of seasonal blooms, each with its own natural life span, on average the bouquet will last 7-10 days with good care which includes utilizing the flower food that is provided with the bouquet, maintaining a clean vase and displaying the flowers in a cool location out of direct sun light.  

Please take a few moments to review my flower care tips for the best recommendations for carrying for your flowers or those you are gifting.
