To Our Beloved Becky Baker!

After over 2 years, our beloved Becky Baker has decided to stay home for her kids. For those of you that had the privilege to meet her, you know how hard this really is for all of us. She was an amazing asset to our team. She delivered flowers all across the county, as well and being an awesome person to help people in the store. She also did all of our roses and a lot of extra design help during production time! She was a hard-working, do-it-all kind of gal...She will be dearly missed. We hope she will join us again in the future, but we wish her all the time with her kids she needs! We love you Beck!

Congrats to Nicole!

This past weekend, we sent another blushing bride down the aisle with a beautiful bouquet of roses, hydrangeas, orchids, callas, and veronica in various jewel tones. A touch of heuchera foliage added a fun garden style texture to the mix.

Memorializing a Golfer

This last week was anything but quiet at Flowers Washougal! We had several projects on the burner, one of which was a special memorial for a local man, Merrill Alexander. We had the gracious opportunity to create flowers in a beautiful tablescape for his celebration of life.
He was a golfer. He played often, and well. That became the focus of our design. It's what he was all about. It seemed fitting to his son and family. We created a beautiful colorful collection of flowers incorporating all of his favorite golfing things...Shoes, clubs, his bag, his plaque of family competitions had...It really reflected a wonderful memory of his life.

Pather Pride!

This last Saturday, Washougal High School seniors graduated in style. As part of the celebration we created the two wonderful windwhirls of flowers in orange and black...their school colors! We love doing fabulous designs for the highschool. It's our way of supporting our local community!

With an industrial flair, we created these suspended designs with orchids, naranga roses, anthurium and peonies...all incorporating items found at the hardware store!

Congratulations Class of 2009! You did it! Here's a list of the top ten students graduating this year! Congrats everyone!

Madeline gets married!

Madeline came in and selected a beautiful mix of soft cream to peach roses, chocolate cosmos and peach colored hypericum berries. With beautiful wire detailing and pearl pin studding on the stems, her bouquet had an old-fashioned look with a contemporary twist.

Congratulations Joy!

A beautiful Saturday was spent at The Viewpoint Inn in Corbett, setting up a wedding for Joy's incredible day. With luscious flowers in soft hues of cream and pink and touches of lavendar, this is one of our favorite weddings so far this year! Peonies, roses, hydrangeas, sweetpeas, calla lilies and more...this girly girl got a princess wedding she has always wanted. Special thanks to Becky for her help with this extensive setup!

Her bouquet consisted of cream peonies, and helga piaget roses in a simple clutch style. Simply beautiful!

The attendant's bouquets were comprised of peonies, sweetpeas, freesia, and old fashioned roses. Lusciously fragrant!

Orbs of hydrangea, roses and soft foliage hung from sheppard's hooks down the aisle to luscious bouquets atop rustic pedestals. (both available for rental)

Lavish bouquets with sweetpeas, roses, hydrangeas, peonies and calla lilies flanked the bride and groom at the front serving as an awesome focal point; beyond a beautiful view of the Columbia Gorge.

Overfilled bubblebowls of the same romantic flowers travelled down a long table. The hanging flower orbs were to be added to the mix after the ceremony was over.
