There are a few changes to our shop and our web page. I am no longer doing consultation for lavender growi. There has not been a high demand plus there are some free resources, which I myself have used. I might just post a separate blog about that topic coming up soon.
Our floral designs are seeing major changes. I have removed all but our most popular bouquets. For those designs, I am ONLY offering bridal sizes for the more elaborate bouquets. One some of the bouquets I am still offering medium and large size. I am a one-person operation for the floral designs. The larger wedding parties are becoming a bit much for me to handle alone additionally the designs are very time intensive. I will no longer to do any custom designs either. The bouquets that I have listed is what I will provide in the size listed A simple change out of flower color or ribbon is fine. Extensive customization is no longer available
I have removed our Save-the-Date page due to the fact I do not intend to do large wedding parties any longer.
I also have been seeing an increase in the flare of my carpal tunnel syndrome. I was a medical transcriptionist for 18 plus years and now with the fine work of wedding parties I am seeing a lot of increase of symptoms and pain.
I have decided to take the shop more in a direction of home decor type of floral dried arrangements and increasing our line of natural gifts, candles and other items. I have been inspired by time at our cabin to start increasing our primitive and rustic designs.
Also as another notice or reminder. We are a non-traditional lavender farm. We do not have public hours. I get a lot of inquiries about that. There are multiple reasons for this. One is we are still working on our fields still. We had some losses of plants the winter before last and just replanted this season. Another is we have neighbors as we in a semi-rural area right on the outskirt of Monroe. We technically are in Frenchtown, but use a Monroe address/postal code. We decided we do not want the liability of public visits, but we are open doing some events that are scheduled for specific weekends including garden tours, selling of our products on sight, and plant sales. These would begin hopefully next season (summer 2021). I will post updates.
Thank you~ Hope everyone is having a great summer so far! Here are some pictures of some of our home decor type arrangements and some of our new products.
