Rose of Sharon is 21!
21yrs.jpg

April 17, 1998. This was the beginning. The day Rose of Sharon officially began.

In 1998, I designed FOUR weddings. Last year, we designed over 75 weddings and events.

In 1998, I was 24. You can do the math for 2019. :D

In 1998, the internet was barely a thing. In 2019, it’s everything!

In 1998, roses and Stargazer Lilies were popular. In 2019, garden roses, peonies, and ranunculus are my most requested flowers.

I could go on and on and on…21 years means lots and lots of memories, designs, weddings, and events. But instead, I’ll just show you some of my favorite photos from the last 10ish years (because there are no digital photos from 1998!)

Enjoy!

Amazing wedding from 2005!


Through the years, we’ve worked in some absolutely beautiful venues and locations, including (but absolutely NOT limited to):


Our arrangements have ranged from simple to elaborate. We’ve had the chance to design very large weddings, simple elopements, themed events, and corporate receptions. We’ve gotten the chance to work with flowers from all over the world and with flowers grown by local farmers. Our flowers have been in celebrity planes and everyday homes. We’ve given children their first flowers and helped families say goodbye to loved ones.

Finally, a great big THANK YOU to everyone who has helped us make it this far!

Oh, and here’s a peackcok we made with orchids….because it was just COOL to make this!

True Love Tuesday: Gabbie & Rich

The Botanical Gardens of the Ozarks is a beautiful and luscious location, claiming home to twelve themed gardens and a butterfly house and numerous varieties of colorful blooms. With the already occurring beauty and color with the gardens, it is no surprise Gabbie and Richard choose to keep their décor clean and simple with white hydrangeas, roses and baby’s breath.

 Who says simple can be elegant. Gabbie’s bouquet was, without a doubt, elegant with white roses and small succulents with a touch of foliage.  Her bridesmaids carried simple bouquets of white hydrangeas with white ribbon accents, which complimented their light grey dresses.

The reception tables were adorned with the same hydrangeas and baby’s breath. Silver vases held hydrangeas and foliage on the sweetheart table and posies of baby’s breath accented the chairs. Other tables held candle goblets containing baby’s breath.

Our favorite part, even the Groom took a moment to smell the roses.

Late August wedding at the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks.  The purple and sage colors worked great for this outdoor wedding!  And the flowers we used were tolerant of our southern summer heat.

Kate's bouquet: roses, carnations, stock, gerbera daisies, hypericum berries and fern curls.    

Hypericum berry and fern curl boutonnieres.
