We came across the creations of Françoise Weeks, a Portland, Oregon-based floral designer, in the pages of Flower Magazine and instantly fell in love with their lively colors and whimsical nature. This Belgian designer’s training shows in her use of textural elements and lush florals, mixing both in bouquets that are freshly modern yet fanciful and fun.
From bouquets and centerpieces to garlands, wreaths and cakes, Françoise’s unique floral touch can be seen at many weddings and celebrations and there’s nothing she won’t decorate with blooms… Even the bride or hostess can have a headdress, jewelry, purse and shoes made entirely of flowers!

We think any of these floral fantasies would be a perfect way to celebrate the coming of spring and with only one week to go, we can’t wait for winter to finally be over.
What are you fantasizing about this spring?

When we think of June, we think of weddings so why not celebrate matrimonial bliss by giving away a custom made centerpiece inspired by a wedding bouquet.
We ‘re often asked to recreate a bride’s fresh bouquet as a centerpiece so that she can have a lasting memory of her special day and we’d love to design one just for you!
Here’s what you have to do: send us a picture of your wedding bouquet to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what inspired you to choose the flowers, colors and/or style. You have until 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, June 15th, 2013, to enter and we’ll announce the lucky winner on Monday, June 17th.
And for all you husbands out there, wouldn’t this make the perfect anniversary gift?!
P.S. Please note that the final bouquet will be created in a vase of your choice (5″ cylinder or 4.5″ cube) and will measure approximately 9″ in diameter by 9″ high.
