To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.
- Audrey Hepburn-
I believe not just in a tomorrow, but a tomorrow filled with lots of beautiful flowers. There has been a lot of planning around here for the upcoming season. I’m very excited to announce some new things that are happening at Sarah’s Petals.
One new thing this year is our bulk/ DIY bride option of ordering flowers in bulk. This is a great option for the cost conscious or creative bride who wants to arrange their own flowers. What could be more fun than making the arrangements with a group of your friends and family. Flowers are great at helping make memories. This offering isn’t just for brides either. Order several buckets of flowers and make arrangements with your girl friends while sipping wine! Any special gathering like baby showers, graduation parties, or fancy dinner parties are taken to the next level with beautiful flowers.

I’m thrilled about adding Heirloom Chrysanthemums to our flower line up this year. These are not your ordinary garden mums but are exhibition quality blooms that are anything but ordinary. Confucius once suggested Chrysanthemums be used as an object of meditation and their history dates back to the 15th century. One reason I'm super excited about these is that they will be blooming September-November. They will help take the place of the dahlias after the first killing frost and they have cool names like Kermit, Kevin Tatto, and Paint Box.
Speaking of dahlias... I am of course adding new varieties to the dahlia line up this year. I’m adding several “ball” dahlias for our market bouquets because they are the longest lasting type of dahlia. I’m also expanding my selection of “dinner plate” and “decorative” types for the florists and designers that I sell to.
I have several more things up my sleeve but you will just have to wait!
