New blog, new post

Welcome to our new blog... a blank slate, as you can see.

Blogging is new to me and I know-- I'm about fifteen years late. To be honest, that's about on par with when I acquired a cell phone, a laptop, a smart phone. I just joined Instagram in April (follow me @hawthornflowerstudio) and FINALLY figured out why there were all those square pictures on Facebook. It's like a whole other world out there! Say whaaaat?

It's been a busy year for Hawthorn. We're in the process of designing a new logo and website. We've been working on weddings since Jan 3rd. We hauled in a 610 pound commercial refrigerator that changed my life (and probably our electric bill, too....!).

And that's why we're starting a new blog. The old blog featured weddings that you'll see in the gallery-- and to be honest, as I've evolved as a floral designer, some of the older posts don't represent what I do anymore. You'll see now that my style is intrinsically inspired by nature, our surroundings and local, seasonal material. This year, I've been experimenting with wild, delicate textures. I'm also giving the flowers more space to breath and have room to be SEEN. My favorite wedding is always the last one I worked on, which is a good sign. Then I set off to try to do even better the next time.

Things are evolving quickly and I hope you come back here to see what's going on. In the meantime, did I mention we're on Instagram (@hawthornflowerstudio)?? Oh yea. I did that.
