Spring is finally here! Soon we will have warm and sunny days, fun spring and summer trends, and lots of seasonal events. A few of our favorite events coming up include graduations, spring and summer weddings, and of course the Azalea Festival Garden Party! What makes any event more complete than beautiful floral arrangements? Whether you give them to a recent graduate to congratulate them, carry a bouquet in your wedding, or use them to spice up your decorations, flowers can make any look complete. In case you are looking to get some flowers for upcoming events, here are a few of our favorite local florists.
Located in New Bern, French Blue Floral is owned and ran by Wendy. She chose the name French Blue Floral because french blue was her favorite color growing up, as it sounded very romantic. It was also the color of her bridesmaids dresses in her wedding. Specializing in wedding and special event floral arrangements, Wendy's passion for floral designing is evident in her work. Check out her website to view her gallery and to get in touch with her!
The name says it all! This little Wilmington flower shop may not look like much on the outside, but once you walk inside you will be impressed by the array of floral arrangements around the store. Ran by June Sweeny, Beautiful Flowers by June is perfect to suit your floral needs for any occasion. From a last minute bouquet, to flowers for your wedding or special event, they have it all. Take a look at their website to see the floral portfolio, wedding gallery, and testimonials from satisfied customers!
From Garden Party Floral Designs, we got to hear from Sara Wade herself on why she is passionate about floral design.
"Flowers help us feel special. Say you are getting your hair done, or at a spa where they feature fresh flowers on the desk. You think to yourself, "Wow! I'm gonna get pampered today!" Or you stay at a really nice hotel or B&B where there are flowers in the lobby. They say to you...."this is a nice place!" Just that one touch of nature, that beauty helps you feel relaxed and happy all at the same time. Or maybe when you stay at a friend's house, she puts a little vase of a couple of stems by your bed. The message here is, "Welcome! I've been expecting you and I'm glad you're here!"
Flowers encourage us, bring us joy. They are a really special part of God's creation. One that I believe should be shared and become more of a part of our daily lives."
