Color study: blues and greens

Soothing and cool, a mixture of blues and greens are perfect for a hot summer day. And even cooler, accents of icy white finish the look. Thankfully, summer brings us a greater selection of blues flowers to choose from. Our favorites include delphinium and scabiosa (shown above) as well as agapanthus, echinops, eryngium, and bachelor's buttons.

Winter Wedding with succulents

It's not just Sammy’s that loves succulents, many of our brides do, too! Above are some shop pictures of a recent winter wedding with succulent bouquets and boutonnieres. Additional texture is added to the bouquets with seeded eucalyptus, queen anne’s lace, brunnia and pure white cotton plumes. The combination creates a beautiful winter palette with a surprising twist!

Hanging succulent terrariums

Continuing our fascination with all things succulent, these hanging glass orbs make cute mini terrariums. Fun (and a little challenging to create), their care is so so easy! A little sun, a little water every once in awhile and you are good to go. See our other blog posts about terrariums by clicking on the succulents label.
