From the Blog
In May we had the honor of designing flowers for Abby & Kevin, we love all the great shots that the fabulous Erica Ferrone took of the happy couple on their special day but I can’t help but be partial to the shots that were taken outside of the Bakers Chocolate Condominiums. Being a florist here in Dorchester for the past 37 years and only a couple blocks from Baker Square these shots are very familiar to me and when I saw them, I just new we had to post them on our blog…
The altar pieces were designed in a clear glass vase, allowing you the opportunity to serve for double duty at the reception as long as the church allows.
St Gregories altar looks breathtaking!
The high centerpieces were designed in gold cylinder vases with luscious peonies, beautiful snap dragons, roses, ranunculus and topped with curly willow branches.
A huge Thank you goes out to Abby & Kevin for allowing us to be a part of their special day and to Erica Ferrone Photography for her expertise behind the lens.

I have to admit it, I absolutely despise the fact that we have to bid adieu to the phenomenal great summer weather and the colorful gardenscapes that I have seen throughout the city this year-but when September rolls in and the crispy autumn air is ubiquitous in the early morning, I know without a doubt it is time for cozy sweaters, spiced lattes, homemade apple pie and everything pumpkin flavored!
Working at Cedar Grove Gardens all these years, fall has become my favorite season. The garden center is full of autumnal colors and textures. Mum plants, crimson colored grasses, ornamental kale, gourds, and pumpkins of all sizes and colors. I especially love when we get that rare shipment of white and green pumpkins. We absolutely love adding these fall elements to our container gardens or to a grapevine wreath that will welcome your guest at the front door when they come to visit.
September also means that our annual Harvest Festival is just around the corner. This year it will be on Sunday October 29th, a date you will want to save for sure. Our Harvest Festival brings so much joy to the little ones in our neighborhood as they have a chance to boast their favorite costumes. Pinata’s filled with candy and coins are always a delight, but the big attraction is the horse drawn wagon ride through the brilliant fall foliage and fallen leaves over at Cedar Grove Cemetery.
So you see, September is not all that bad, it is the doorway to the best season of all.
