On the Horizon . . . EXPANSION!

We are beyond excited to share what's on the horizon for Mill Creek Gardens. We have been working on some exciting new changes in store for the coming year and can't wait to let you in on our little secret. We plan to create an indoor event space that resembles a luxury lodge with a stoned terrace that overlooks the creek.

We are also looking forward to the beginning of our floral design workshops. This Seasonal Floral Intensive will focus on the dreamiest, most romantic flowers of the seasonal garden. We bring in hundreds of stems of luscious flowers with armloads of blooms from MCG's gardens to provide a veritable feast for the eyes and soul of the flower lovers who gather for the workshop.

The two-day event brings together budding florists, established designers, creatives and dreamers eager to learn natural floral design techniques utilizing seasonal flowers. As part of the experience, participants tour Mill Creek Garden's magical little operation and wade through flower fields, forest and orchard to harvest anything their hearts desire. 

Utilizing their new design skills, each member of the group will create lush, ultra-romantic centerpieces and floral installations for an incredible celebratory dinner party and photo shoot.

Our talented little group will leave our gardens with new skills, gorgeous new portfolio pieces and a newfound sense of confidence and a clear idea on how to move forward in making their dreams a reality.

Sign up here to get on our mailing list to be notified about our upcoming floral workshops.

FALL MUSINGS. . .and WINDS OF CHANGE

As I sat in the garden and walked the grounds over the last few weeks I marveled at the changes around me. . .color, light, air, fragrance, shadow, texture and a hundred other things. And that led me to some important decisions. . . I want to transform the grounds into a true growers paradise.

One where I can grow and utilize flowers and foliage from our own gardens for wedding design. I love to think outside the box when it comes to all design, and this definitely includes florals. I like to incorporate organic materials, even using fruits and vegetation, succulents and seeds to create truly remarkable and unique arrangements. I love to integrate edible arrangements into table decor, drawing upon the bounty of nature and highlighting it as table centerpieces.

Not only do I have plans to expand the scope of our flora, but I foresee changes in the landscape design, color schemes and layout. I wish I could complete all the projects I would like to right away, but these things take time and patience, just like waiting for next seasons blooms. . .
