Ione Floral Design created a bodacious English garden styled hand-tied bouquet for our client Genesis Community Fund's recent event.
This week Ione Floral Design had the pleasure of creating event flowers for Brunswick neighbor and client, Genesis Community Fund. Since our studio is literally across the street, it has been delightful to watch the days leading up to their 25th anniversary celebration unfold.
For this event, Ione became part of the project as both floral designer and garden designer. The opportunity to bring floral and garden design together is our favorite. For the celebration, we spruced up the lovely perennial gardens that flank the office and cultivated container gardens for future decoration around the tent.
The decision to create English garden style centerpieces along with a special hand-tied bouquet for an honored guest came about naturally to reflect the values of Genesis, who support local enterprise on every level. The flowers were sourced from Broadturn Farm, local Maine flower farm and highlighted the prettiest blooms of the local season. Dahlias being the star flower of September.
On the big day, it was great fun to deliver the enormous container gardens by loading on a dolly and walking them across the street. It was the closest delivery ever! The neighborhood enjoyed watching the large tent appear over night and the twinkly lights sparkle that evening while the large crowd celebrated the good work of Genesis Community Fund. Congratulations on 25 years!
