This week’s flower spotlight will be focused on one of my favorite winter and early spring bloom: Anemones!
Anemones are a focal and secondary focal bloom (what does this mean? Click here). This flower is round in shape and their soft and delicate petals surround a dark blue/black center. Anemones come in white, red, purple, blue, and light pink. My personal favorite colors are white and red. I love designing with this bloom for weddings with black elements. With that dark center, it is the perfect compliment! When working with anemones, I pay close attention to where their placement is since putting two anemones together can often look like eyes staring at you!
During the months of November through May is when you can get Anemones at its best. Anemones have become a winter favorite among florists. It is important to order this flower when it is in season, otherwise they come in really tiny and may not open.
Anemones are extremely fragile and don’t do well in hot or freezing cold temperatures. Their petals also open and close with daylight. It is important to keep Anemones in a dark cooler so their lifespan isn’t shorten by them opening and closing each day.

“Kaytee is an absolute GEM! She has so much passion and care for what she does, that you feel like she's a friend more than a vendor. She walks you through each step of the floral process with organization, examples, cost, and detail -- all things that make my detail-oriented heart happy.

"Kaytee became so much more than a vendor for us. The first time I met her I felt as though I met a long lost friend. She was the very first vendor I chose for the wedding (even before the venue) and she lived up to all my expectations and went above and beyond. Each time I met with her I felt confident that she completely comprehended my wants and would fashion them into something that looks put together, yet natural. The day-of she silently transformed a bland rustic space into an enchanting, romantic barn. I couldn't have asked for anything more beautiful or unique."
-Grace, Spring 2019 Wedding
"Kaytee was so great to work with!!! I provided her with some floral inspirations from Pinterest and Instagram but gave her a lot of free rein coming up with the flowers for our wedding and she went above and beyond expectations. Our photographer was obsessed with all the bouquets and we got so many great pictures of them! She did such a good job making my smaller budget work to make high impact arrangements. She's also the sweetest person to be around!"
