Peony and Daisy Elegance

We can not say enough good things about Francine and Matt! Francine was such an enjoyable bride to work with, both easy-going and organized. Being a part of this wedding was an absolute pleasure! We first met Fran and their son Dryden (THE cutest little gentlemen you will ever meet!) at our old studio location. From our first consult on she was the perfect bride. We looked forward to her emails and visits, everyone of them filled with smiles! Matt and Francine had an elegant wedding in a beautiful catholic church. This couple is so close to perfect! Wishing you all the best in your smile filled life together! (hugs to Dryden!)

P.s. More photo’s to be added to this post, so check back! We were just too excited to wait any longer!

Rustic Flare

Something a little different and very inspired, a rustic flare wedding in Callendar! When we first met with Sarah-Jean, her Mama and groomy-to-be Jason we new this was going to be a great one! Sarah-Jean is a photographer (check out her stuff here) and is very artistic herself, so when she said she’d love something rustic inspired, we were in our element! Everything we designed was infused with Sarah-Jean’s theme. Their wedding took place at the bride’s parents home in Callendar (which looked fabulous!) The weather was perfect and the venue was spectacular with many unique touches. We wish Jason and Sarah-Jean all the very best! We loved creating for their special day! Here it is, a little rustic flare!

Floral Play-date with Kate Hood of KHI Photography

We had the privilege a few weeks back of having Kate from Kate Hood Photography and her wee Charlie visit us and take a few shots of us designing. It was such a fun day filled with laughing, and baby talk. Our “work-date” with Kate and Charlie was more a “play-date”. We loved every moment!
To all of our friends, if you are looking for a photographer please check out Kate’s website and her blog for examples of her work. We have worked with her, we adore her and promise you won’t be disappointed! She’s FAB-U-LOUS!

So here we are doing what we love, creating.

Thank you Kate! Lots of love!

Hidden Valley “I Do’s”

Meet Heather and Will, a fantastic couple that was an absolute pleasure to work with! The couples big day took place at the beautiful Hidden Valley Resort in Huntsville, the perfect back drop for a wedding. When  it came to deciding on florals both the bride and groom were easy going, making our job a snap! After our first consult the couple had decided on their florals; lisianthus, roses, and cymbidium orchids.  Heather and Will  we wish you the very best, we were thrilled to be a part of your day!

Special thanks to our pal Wendy of Wmac Photography for the gorgeous photo’s!

High Heels and Business Suits

posted in: Floral Design | 2

 Our amazing friend Kimberley approached us with the chance to be the floral providers for a very special event, The Influential Women in Business Awards. Of course we instantly said yes! It was an absolute honor and privilege to be a part of this inspiring day. As two women in business ourselves, helping praise the talented women in the North was a treat!
36 table centerpieces, four bouquets, and a booth were designed the day before and squeezed into our SUV with just enough room for our driver. We would like to commend again those women who received awards. To all women in business congrats! Women in high heels and business suits are truly inspiring.

Caffine…our life support. (Caffine beverages from two great spots in Sunny Sundridge, The Red Brick Cafe and The Blue Roof!)

Tight Squeeze!

BIG thanks again to Kimberley for this opportunity and to Maddi for all of your help!

IN CARNATIONS Floral and Home Design


We finally can see the light at the end of the tunnel! Our renovations are almost complete! We started just four short weeks ago on a big interior design project, our own! We have moved to our new location at 82 Ontario Street, Sundridge. After many long, exhausting days we quietly placed our open sign in the window and couldn’t be more thrilled with the response! 

One of our new dear friend, Wendy of Wmac Photography who is incredibly talented, was INCREDIBLY kind and took a few photo’s of our new studio! After peeking at her photo’s we can finally stand back and say all of our hard work, paint stained clothes, elbow grease bruises, and complete exhaustion has paid off! Please take a gander at her website and blog, we guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

Thank you to all of our outstanding friends who offered us their tools, hands and support, we appreciate it immensely! To our friends and clients, we thank you for your continued support!

So here it is friends! Welcome to In Carnations! Ta Da!

Fabulous in the Fall

We could rant for hours about how wonderful Ashley and Ron are as people and as a couple. It was a thrill to work with these two! A fall wedding, with fall colours, and a unique accent, wheat! A great inspired idea! We wish these two the very best!

Thank you Ashley and Ron! Wishing you the best!

Jenn and Paul- Married- Muskoka Barn Wedding

Jenn and Paul are amazing people, who had an amazing idea for a wedding venue! For the floral designer it makes the task of designing that much more thrilling when you have this kind of back drop to work with. A glamorous barn wedding! We couldn’t have been more thrilled to work with this couple.

A unique wedding venue deserves nothing less than unique table centre pieces.

Thank you Jenn and Paul for sharing your day with us!

A special thanks to KHI Photography.

Gillian and Jaime’s big day took place in Gravenhurst, ON and was nothing short of beautiful.
Between the ceremony over looking the water, and the complimenting floral’s this special day was nothing short of fabulous.
The couples floral theme was textured elegance, which complimented the pair and their venue perfectly.

Thank you Gillian and Jaime for sharing your day with us!
