Spoooky flower stair rail installation. Amaranthus grown here on the farm steal the show, with their long rope-y blooms. . . . #blommaflowerfarm #Halloween #farmerflorist #flowerfarmer #flowers #spooky #stairwaygarland #garland #creepy #beautiful #alloweenflowers
A week later the arrangement still looks good and the alstroemerias are opening. This view highlights the carnation “hydrangeas”. . . . #blommaflowerfarm #flowerfarmer #flowers #sanclemente #carnations #alstroemeria
Hanna roses have an interesting dark tinge on the edges making them suitable for this darker arrangement with clustered burgundy carnations. . . . #blommaflowerfarm #flowers #flowerfarmer #florist #texture #hannarose
#repost from the recipient of the final dahlia harvest. They played for hours with the bounty to create a beautiful experience for a dear friend. ...And swooned a little. . . . #blommaflowerfarm #swoon #flowers #farmerflorist #flowerfarmer #harvest #bridal #shower #weddingflowers #fresh
Harvest abundance meets taste: Seeing my flowers get a good home after harvest and being lovingly styled makes my heart happy. ❤️🌺💕. Someone has an alternate career if she wants it! . . . #blommaflowerfarm #abundance #style #flowerfarmer #flowers #bridalshower #sweetniece #cafeaulaitdahlias
To the helper go the spoils!...a day of working the mini farm reaped a carload of flowers. My helper got to take them home for a special event. . . . #blommaflowerfarm #harvest #spoils #flowers #flowerfarmer #farmerflorist #weddingflowers #abundance #dahlias #davidaustinroses
With all-day help, the dahlias have all been dug, cleaned, divided, labeled (no time to stop for a pen when you can write with clippers!) and stored in just two days! It’s early, but construction has forced my hand. The hard work is done; now it’s time to wake up the ranunculus!!!! . . . #blommaflowerfarm #dahlias #help #flowers #flowerfarmer #farmerflorist #sanclemente #ranunculus
Harvesting these blush beauties was a snap with this one helping 💕. . . . #blommaflowerfarm #flowers #flowerfarmer #lisianthus #family #love #farmerflorist #sanclemente #sisterinlaw
My sweet sister-in-law came by to help harvest the last of the dahlias and she fell in love. . . . #blommaflowerfarm #dahlia #sisterinlaw #harvest #endofseason #flowerfarmer #cafeaulaitbowl

Many many squats later, the new bed has 14 Clematis cuttings and 35 sweet pea starts from seed. Spring will be amazing here! . . . #blommaflowerfarm #flowerfarmer #sweetpeas #clematis #flowerbed #spring #fallplanting
It’s time for my Clematis cuttings, that I have nurtured since I took them in June, to go into the newly built bed made just for them. I can’t wait to see these four-month-olds in another 4-5 months! . . . #blommaflowerfarm #flowerfarmer #farmerflorist #clematis #diycuttings #propagation #allin
It’s Sunday, the end of the day...Mike is my hero. We went from 1/2 of a planter to almost 3 today. All the woodies are planted and we’re going in to collapse! . . . #blommaflowerfarm #flowerfarmer #sanclemente #Mikeisastud
Sympathy in flowers requires extra thoughtfulness in the details. The heart tries harder to be mindful and reverent, telling the story of a life and a gesture of kindness to the recipient. It’s a little tiny opportunity to indirectly comfort a person in deep sorrow. . . . #blommaflowerfarm #flowerfarmer #sympathy #details #mindfulness #kindness #comfort #flowers
Exciting things are happening here at our mini flower farm! We are reconfiguring/slightly expanding the front beds for better production. I’m sorry to impact the dahlias a few weeks early, but they’ll have more room and better air circulation next season. We’ll be digging them out and the tubers will be cleaned, divided, labeled and stored for next year. Lots of mess and hard work now for bounty later... Updates to follow. . . . #blommaflowerfarm #flowerfarmer #expanding #dahlias #minifarm #flowerfarm #dusty #fixerupper
It just gets better! Thankful for being able to have my little farm by the beach. . . . #blommaflowerfarm #flowerfarmer #design #buylocal #sanclementepier #sanclemente #sunset
Farming close to the beach has its challenges, but when you walk to dinner and this is the view (at the end of your street!), it’s not too bad! . . . #blommaflowerfarm #floraldesign #flowerfarmer #design #sunset #sanclemente #sanclementepier #beachlife #lifestyle

Cali wholesale has the freshest flowers! It makes designing so much more fun when you get such great materials.

10 sweet little centerpieces all done! I love their simplicity because it allows the enjoyer to focus on the roses up close. . . . #blommaflowerfarm #roses #teninthirty #floraldesign #flowerfarmer #saddlebackchurch #ranchocapistrano #primaverarose

Fall caught me by surprise. The weather has cooled more than usual for San Clemente, but it’s the change in light that always gets me. Still, I’m grateful for the bounty summer has been. Time to rearrange some things on our property and get ready for cool season! . . . #blommaflowerfarm #flowerfarmer #floraldesign #design #rogersgardens #fall #harvest #sanclemente
Happy Fall! Thanks to Alison and #rogersgardens for the wonderful workshop and beautiful setting! . . #blommaflowerfarm #fall #flowers #design #floraldesign #flowerfarmer

What a sweet surprise for a mommy-to-be! Here’s another look at Military Baby Shower arrangement number 3. . . . #blommaflowerfarm #design #marines #flowerfarmer #floraldesign #babies #babyshower #pink

Full shot of Military Baby Shower arrangement number 2.

Angle no. 2 for arrangement no. 2. Those pieces of driftwood were foraged after a big storm in 2017 down at the end of my street. . . . #blommaflowerfarm #flowerfarmer #floraldesign #design #marines #babyshower #flowers #saddlebackchurch #ranchocapistrano
Military Baby Shower arrangement no. 2. Going for a neutral, woodsy theme with lots of white, green and grey, including this textural tillandsia. . . . #blommaflowerfarm #design #flowerfarmer #floraldesign #buylocal #natural #neutral #woodsy #babyshower #marines
Every three months a special group of ladies at Saddleback Church host a baby shower for pregnant women married to Marines. Often, these women know few if any people when they get moved to Camp Pendleton and, often with deployed husbands, find themselves without traditional support. The baby showers are a place to find camaraderie, support, lunch, treats and often much needed baby items...all for free! It is my pleasure to donate my time making five unique arrangements for five lucky moms-to-be to take home. This is the first. #blushing . . . #blommaflowerfarm #marines #design #flowerfarmer #camppendleton #babyshower #thankyouforyourservice #oorah
Yesterday’s post completed. Summer turns into fall without the cliches. Simple and abundant, clean and classic. . . . #blommaflowerfarm #simple #classic #abundant #clean #floraldesign #florist #flowers #sanclemente

A different perspective: Although technically challenging, this arrangement creates unique views from multiple angles.

These two! Giggles and face palms and general joy in being together always makes me happy!!! I love how much they love and enjoy each other.

What you will find out when you harvest at night is that bumble bees like to sleep on zinnias. It makes them very hard to harvest. 🐝 . . . #blommaflowerfarm #flowerfarmer #localfreshflowers #localflowers #zinnia #bumblebee #zzzzzz

Classic sherbet colors are one of my favorite color pallets. They are cheerful and energizing, capturing the season, yet sophisticated enough for a grown-up birthday celebration. After so much neutral in floral work, this color scheme for summer is so refreshing!

San Clemente is a cute beach town in Southern California. Summer farming makes it tough to have time to enjoy all it has to offer. Sometimes, a girl has just gotta take the afternoon off! . . . #blommaflowerfarm #nothingtoharvesthere #sailing #summer #sanclemente #ocean #beach #waterwatereverywhere
Behind the scenes: Red and Black 3+’ arrangement. When making large pieces for a weekly client, I like to use a vase liner. I buy 2. Last week’s arrangement is in the one at her house. This week’s is sitting on a bucket so I can see the height/scale/proportion as I work. When I deliver, I swap out liners. Two liners for the same vase makes transporting such large pieces infinitely easier, lighter, and this liner allows me to work foam free! . . . #blommaflowerfarm #behindthescenes #redandblackflowers #nofoam #foamfree #sanclemente #floraltricks #behindthedesign #floralmechanics .
Amaranthus harvest. It’s so much better quality when you grow it yourself. . . . #blommaflowerfarm #amaranthus #flowerfarmer #sanclemente #flowers #buylocal

A new favorite in the garden, blush State Fair zinnia. Neutral and moody, she’s so versatile! . . . . #blommaflowerfarm #blush #zinnia #summerflowers #sanclemente
Testing for the best harvest stage is important to ensure long vase life. Today’s test subject is Queen of Sweden. I like to refer to her as just The Queen.
