Starting in 2013 I took seriously the call to support our local environment and small businesses and agriculture, which is why I source all my flowers and foliages from farmers in the DC Maryland and Virginia areas. The array of flowers available at local farms and greenhouses will astound you. Out of my love of the nature I never use toxic, biodegradable floral foam. I work very hard to bring the sweetest elements of our natural world to your home and special event.
I will be posting about that journey on this blog so I hope you'll enjoy that. And if that's not enough for you - join our CSA as I'll be bringing back their beautiful labors to members here in Takoma Park MD
Hi! I'm Bethany of Butterkup Flowers, a small floral design studio in Takoma Park MD. I work with local flower farms to bring unexpected botanical beauty to your special event or party.
I am a fan of flea markets, pearls, cats who are up to no good and dirt under my finger nails. All of these elements find their way into the designs I create for gardens, weddings, parties and tablescapes. I love an unstructured look in a traditional vessel; perhaps something you inherited from Grandma, maybe a little tarnished or repurposed, but always with a story to tell.
This year I will be working as a flower farm apprentice at M and M Plants in Comus Maryland. Mark and Madgie have agreed to teach me everything and I get a chance to live the dream without signing on the bottom line quite yet. Win win, I think.
Visit my blog or IG often to see what's local and lovely today and everyday!
