Ice branches on a winters morning

A peaceful morning from our shop window.  Enjoy the calm of the day after Christmas.  Many countries celebrate boxing day today.  Giving gifts to employees, and helpers, and service people like the mail man!

Enjoy the calm with a cup of tea and our bistro and tea house!

Magical Centerpiece

A delightful fairy sitting on one of our fancy blown glass bowls, we added water and floated glass “bubbles” for a magical table setting, perfect for a party, holiday, or Tea Party celebration, even a fairy tale wedding!

Christmas fun!

The fun is about to begin, in our florist and gift shop.

Our front door christmas-2008-083

This is the front door of our shop this Christmas, drivers go by at 40 miles an hour, sometimes 50.  A simple clean look is what is called for. With the sneaky addition of lights to the door swag we add the sparkle.  See on the hing side of the door I send the plug to the garland set of lights, with enough slack to swing the door in with out it unplugging.  It works well, we have hundreds of guest coming in every day during the holidays.

Ferns and Flowers is a family business, we are nearly 30 years old.

My wife Monica runs the Bistro and teas, and I, Michael run the Florist and Gift shop with my mother.  The three children are involved between school.

We have decorated the many dinning rooms in different looks, to give as many feelings and ideas for the Christmas season to our clients.  Come for a visit, it is a joy to see you.   Michael, Monica, Children, Grandma, and Staff.

The soft cream colors here are accented with a touch of gold, and red for a classic look. This display in our shop is over filled, but at your home edit, then re edit.  At my home I often leave some decorations in storage, and take them out the next year,  they look new to me after that time.
