Susan Mcleary of Passionflower Events in Ann Arbor, Michigan shared these lovely photographs with us, we love the way she designed these beautiful pieces using flowers from Florabundance!

My arrangements are made to complement a gown, a ceremony locale, a reception hall, but are also made to be individual works of art…to delight the senses and infuse the tranquility of nature into a event.
I am continually amazed and inspired by the ephemeral beauty of flowers, and see each event as a chance to inspire others.

My favorite time of year is upon us! SPRING! Here come all the lovelies for us to design with:

Helleborus
When you receive your Hellebore flowers, trim a bit off the stems and immediately plunge the stem ends (1/2”) into hot water containing a floral preservative for about 15 seconds. They last for about a week or longer!

Muscari – Grape Hyacinth
We suggest you get a few extra stems because they are delicate. Great for wedding bouquets!

Daffodils & Narcissus
Gorgeous “Erlicheer”, also known as Early Cheer are pleasantly fragrant and long-lasting. Yellow daffodils add a great pop of yellow to arrangements and a lovely way to announce spring has arrived!
