Fresh Flowers for Valentines Day in Winston-Salem, NC

SaraCoffinPhoto-AmyLynneOriginals--39.jpg

I am pumped – this is the first time our studio in West End is offering fresh designs for Valentines Day!  Of course, we are going to put our own twist on the holiday. 

I started with thinking about the meaning of Valentine’s Day.  It is all about LOVE – right?  Love is the most powerful force in our existence.  It is energy so strong it is only fitting it has its own holiday.

So, what fresh floral design is worthy of the most powerful energy in the universe?

This is what I came up with…

…noteworthy blooms (not just standard roses, but a flower your loved one might have to google to learn the name)

…interesting vessels (something worthy of reuse so more blooms can enjoy being nestled in it again)

…designs with a natural style that will surprise, delight, and spark conversation!

With all that being said, I now present our Valentine’s Day offerings (see below).  If you dig what you see, let us help you spread love this holiday with an ORIGINAL.  Order online at www.amylynneoriginals.com/originals

NYE Wedding Reception, Greensboro Country Club

It was New Years Eve and a new beginning for a delightful bride and groom.  The reception was complete with a champagne tower and firework display!  

I was asked to construct these large floral designs to mimic white fireworks - in other words, an explosion of white blooms!

Today, I am honored and delighted to share these beautiful images captured by Anna Paschal Photography.  Leigh Pearce Events did an amazing job pulling together this magical evening!

Happy New Year!

A New Twist on the Traditional Corsage - Wearable Flowers in Winston-Salem, NC

Wrist corsages seem so outdated.  The itchy elastic band...the old school lace backing...the way they flop around on the wrist...and so on.  While over the years I have tried new ways to modernize the wrist corsage (i.e. make it more like a jewelry cuff), it is still a wrist corsage.

Also, over the years I have enjoyed watching the floral jewelry trend grow and change.  I particularly LOVE following the creations by Passionflower.  Her botanical jewelry, headpieces, and now floral tattoos are amazing!  She is a true talent and inspiration to designers everywhere!

I brainstormed how I can contribute to the modernization of the corsage with my own twist.  What I really want to offer my clients is something versatile and easy to wear.  I mean think about it...most corsages are ordered and given as a gift.  Wouldn't it be great if the person receiving it had easy options about how to wear it?

With all that being said, I came up with a bendable corsage.  It is a relatively thin corsage that is made on a piece of flexible flat wire.  The person wearing the corsage can bend it to fit wherever they want to wear it!  It can be wrapped around the wrist, arm, head, waist, even around a ponytail!  Check out these pictures and contact us if you interested in ordering!

Natural Fall Wreaths, Winston-Salem, NC

Fall is my favorite season.  At the beginning of autumn I love to jump in and design with all sorts of natural, dried elements.  Lotus pods, amber hops, kiwi vine, smilax canes, cotton, congo grass - these are just a few of the many elements I like to incorporate.  Here is a small sampling of a few of my first fall creations.

Each is original and custom made. No two are alike.  Interested in purchasing? Just pop over to our studio to pick one out or call with a special order!

Cheers to autumn~

Announcing ORIGINALS - Ordering Specialty Floral Designs in Winston-Salem

ALO has designed for events for over 10 years.  

I LOVE designing for weddings, and more recently designing for corporate events.  While our company is still deeply rooted in designing for the event world, we are now branching out to offer our community the ability to order single designs.

We named our new line of a la carte designs "Originals" because that is truly what they are.  We are not into dozen roses, balloons, or any cookie cutter type of design.  We are simply offering designs in our own unique style - Wild.  Natural.  Inspired.  

Check out some of our work below.  If you dig our style and want to order an "Original" give us a shout at 336-997-9443 or you can order online amylynneoriginals.com/originals

We are excited to offer our beautiful and very artful city our creativity in the form of fresh floral designs.
