Blog

Welcome to the Fleurs de Temps Blog, a collection of floral design videos, announcements of upcoming workshops, and brief reflections on the art of floral design.  This current collection of videos has in one way or another either influenced my work or reinforced some of the design techniques I already use.  That’s gratifying.  These floral artists are some of the best, and their work deserves applause.  So enjoy.  I welcome your comments about anything on this page you find particularly engaging or useful—or just a question or concern regarding floral design in general.  Leave any thoughts or suggestions in the message section on the Connect page.  Thanks for browsing, and I do look forward to hearing from you.

How to make a bouquet, romantic design

Updated: Sep 27, 2018


This Romantic Design bouquet is particularly appealing to me as it reflects the style of many of my hand-tied bouquets and the unique ways any of us, florist or non-florist, can select a special vessel and a grouping of flowers and foliage and turn them into a work of art.

Shed no tear - O, shed no tear! 
The flower will bloom another year. 
Weep no more - O, weep no more!
Young buds sleep in the root's white core.
- John Keats
