Read an Excerpt

All-natural materials make eco-friendly sense these days. Sometimes, you just can’t improve on Mother Nature! Anyone with a single pine tree (or more) in their yard can easily collect pinecones in a bucket as they fall throughout the year and then have them readily available for use in an evergreen or other floral creation. In fact, one wife trained her husband to save fallen pinecones from the yard in a special bucket instead of simply discarding them.

Designer Associates excels at combining fresh flowers, fruit and live greenery to create fabulous wreaths, garlands, centerpieces, swags, etc., in any season and any setting. Utilizing live plants in arrangements is a very satisfying endeavor and mixing various flowers together will make them even livelier.

One of our main rules is to “do whatever feels good” in creating evergreen decorations. Another of our rules is—“Don’t overthink!” “When we do stuff, we don’t think about it too much, or it ruins it,” Waite stresses. We don’t derive instructions from books or on-line or even follow strict orders from customers on how to arrange flowers.
We simply follow our hearts and instincts and create in a unique style.
