2017 Recap: Flower Farming and Floral Design

FOLKLORE FLOWERS 2017:

TIME TO CELEBRATE

FARMING + FLORAL DESIGN = FULFILLMENT

Granny Jo and I have grown in so many different ways, especially our determination, self-awareness and resilience. We've seriously worked our tails off, both in the flower field and in our floral design workshop.

MAKING A LIFE FOR OURSELVES IN THE WEDDING INDUSTRY

Working for ourselves is probably the biggest and most rewarding challenge. We've always been hard workers, and being able to tap into our creative natures as wedding florists is exhilarating. Keeping ourselves organized without a boss to answer to is a skill we're adapting, though it comes with its growing pains.

WITH THE 2017 WEDDING SEASON UNDER OUR BELTS...

We're ramping up for 2018. Our schedule is booking up with weddings, and we are just about ready to dive headfirst into seed catalogs and map out this coming year's gardens.

A MONTHLONG HIATUS FROM THE FLOWER FARM

As always, we're putting family first. We've had some much-needed down time this December and taken a minute to give ourselves a little break and take care of ourselves and our loved ones.

 Exhausted but happy. Our lives as mothers, organic flower farmers, and florists are dynamic, demanding and rewarding.  Photo Credit: Artemis Photography
