About Me

I am a very close friend of Donn Flipse, Jen Stabile and other associates of Field of Flowers, based in Davie Florida. I share with them a love of flowers and plants, the business of selling them, and a desire to learn more about them. Via my blog I hope to find other people of similar interests and provide them with interesting and entertaining information.

Flower Creations for Deliver the Dream of Broward County


Field of Flowers had the pleasure of creating floral arrangements for the Deliver the Dream 8th Annual Denim & Diamonds Gala held on October 29th. This has been a remarkable year for Deliver the Dream, an organization that helps families suffering from a serious illness or crisis to regain strength, mend spirits and "just be a family again" through three-day retreats. The event, held at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa in Ft Lauderdale raised $300,000! We are inspired by everyone involved, and so happy to have contributed and been a part of this (though bummed we didn't win any diamonds -- maybe next year). Here is a peak at the stunning rose arrangements: long stem red roses dripping like diamonds over the edges of champagne flutes.

Thank you for your service!

Each year, thousands of sailors and Marines are sent on assignment alone to Afghanistan, Iraq, horn of Africa, Guantanamo and other areas to fight the Global War on Terrorism.  Since 9/11, over 90,000 sailors have left their assigned units or commands to deploy individually or in small groups.  They are usually assigned to Army units to fill specialized roles that the Army has either trouble filling or has limited expertise.  Little or no ceremony marks their deployment or return.  Often, with very little notice, IA’s (Individual Augmentee) are asked to head to unknown territories, face unknown enemies and spend over a year away from their homes and families.  On the 6th, Field of Flowers will be donating wrapped roses to go out to the spouses of the IA’s that are being honored and we would like to say to all of the honorees, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!

Couple Ties the Knot in Coral Gables


We got the chance to work with a flashy, fun bride and groom this past October the 1st! Josie and Joe’s color choices of mostly rich reds and brilliant blues were eye popping and a refreshing break from the traditional. Thanks for letting us be a part of your wedding!


Special Thanks to Marilyn of Marilyn Garcia Photography for sharing a few of her photos with us from this wedding. You can see more of Marilyn’s work on her site

Wedding Flowers at the W Fort Lauderdale

Lush Celebrations at Field of Flowers (Davie, FL) was thrilled to be a part of Anna and Yomi's special day for their September 30th, 2011 destination wedding at the super classy W Hotel on Fort Lauderdale beach. Anna decided on a paper lantern theme with dark blues, aqua and the slightest hint of hot pink accents. Our designers created beautiful wedding flower arrangements full of orchids, calla lilies and roses to fit the elegant theme. They held their intimate wedding ceremony on a terrace overlooking the ocean and then hit the sand for what will no doubt be some gorgeous photos! Congratulations, Anna & Yomi! And for others considering a destination wedding, we definitely recommend the W Fort Lauderdale.
