Weddings 2018

Shelley White

It's a perfect day to write a blog post.  The world is swirling in wind and snow, the fairy lights are on and the absence of cars makes for a contemplative afternoon for planning weddings in the new year.

I'm meeting with some wonderful brides, booking for some unfamiliar venues and looking forward to site visits when it's not -5 degrees.  

One of our favorite photos this year was taken  of Megan and Steve who were married in the Rose Garden at the Fenway by Arielle Doneson

Studio life

Shelley White

Bird song , and hammering from down the block, wind through the ash trees, and the whirring fan: the new sounds at the studio are a balm after the jack hammers and trucks on Beacon Street.

The move out was like any move-out - hideous, especially in the final days when all the corners start growing items one swears to have never seen before.  But thanks to Lizzie and Corinne, my husband and his friend, and Michael who is the new tenant, it all came to pass.  Notwithstanding the items left in the garage, we are moved out!

Moving in is another challenge.  All those never-before-seen items and others I see everyday haven't found their home yet and are cluttering up tables and the entrance to the studio.  But all the bins are stacked on shelves, tables are set up, buckets put away and the office is coming together.

I'm grateful for the easy pace of summer with time to recover from the transition.  I'll be preparing last minute details for the wedding at the Harvard Museums on the 26th.  We're booked  through most of September so the working logistics in the new space  will probably need to be tweaked.  

The stray items will find a home, Hortense will be moved from the floor to a table, the office will get organized, Brides will be married, flower gifts will be sent:  all in good time.



Mother's Day is Sunday May 14

This heady bouquet will fill a room with springtime.  Intensely fragrant Yves Piaget garden roses are paired with local lilac.  Frittilaria, Clematis and tulips set off the palette.  Starting at 100.00

We're collecting love poems written by you or your favorite poet.  Still have that Valentine poem from your ten year old?  or your first love?  Are you a poet with piles of love poems like Pablo Neruda, or that poem your wrote to your first boyfriend?

Or maybe you have a love poem for your country, or for Paris or your garden.  Love is the theme and we're posting them in our window and here.

This one is from Amelia @ameliatmanso on Instagram.  Given to her on Valentine's Day by Gaston in 5th grade.

Roses are Red                                                                                                                   They grow in this region                                                                                                     If I had your face                                                                                                               I'd join the foreign legion

All 'love' poems welcome. Please don't be shy.  Email at or if you're on IG, post them @bowstreetflowers.

Mixed arrangements for delivery start at 85.00 plus a delivery charge.

If you would like to pick up flowers we can accomodate all budgets.

Going into Thanksgiving week, we've chosen as our default palette these peach and plum tones to include peonies, roses, ranunculus, astrancia and olive.   Of course we're taking special orders too!  

We'll be open Monday  Tuesday  and Wednesday from 10-5.  We close for Thanksgiving and Black Friday but we're here on Saturday with soaps, cards and candles in case you're beginning to work on your holiday gift giving.  We'll have a selection of orchid plants as well.

You can order online for Thanksgiving or call us: 617 492 0080.  Or you can come in next week and choose your flowers;  we'll wrap 'em up and send you home to make your own centerpiece!
