Has winter got you down? There’s nothing worse then coming home to or waking up to a thick blanket of snow. The winter whiteout melts everything into a blur. Have no fear, there is one way to fight back the monotony of white: decorations! You can cheer up your home inside and out with window boxes of wintergreens and branches and decorative wreaths!

Autumn is always a somewhat bittersweet season, as the long warm nights of summer give way to cooler months of harvest. Here at Westmount Florist, we want to give you another reason to embrace the fall : flowers! Autumn flowers can fall in two major categories: seasonal fall flowers and all season flowers in fall colours.

You may have noticed some new, wild and whimsical additions to Westmount Florist's website recently. The Jacobe, Natasha and Naomi arrangements are our foray into a looser, more organic (and romantic if you ask us) style of floral arranging.

The “Dutch Golden Age”, which occurred roughly between 1568 and 1648, witnessed a blossoming of trade, economics, science and art. During this period, the work of women artists was encouraged. Two of these women, Rachel Ruysch (1664-1750), and Maria van Oosterwijck (1630-1693) are remembered for their floral paintings. A third artist, the German born Maria Sibylla Merian (1647-1717) moved to Amsterdam, and became known for her scientific drawings of flowers and other wildlife.

New York has always been good to me and on my recent spur of moment trip it was extra special, especially being a florist. I was invited by one of my best friends who just so happens to be a florist too. The purpose of the trip was to check out the Waldorf Astoria where he is planning his upcoming wedding to his partner. He proposed to his partner with a ring in New York City and has always had a love affair with the city so it seemed the right place for the same sex union to take place (not to mention, it’s legal in NYC). The hotel is as old and gorgeous as you can imagine and the suite where the wedding is taking place will be just perfect for the intimate ceremony. We’ve planned everything from the flowers, candles, music, photography, champagne, food…right down to the color suits the handsome boys will wear.
