Being thankful…

order flowers, thanksgiving

The 2020 holiday season is upon us and how different it all looks. As business people we have had to become more creative and adapt. As consumers it has taken a lot of thought and planning. For all the challenges and changes that 2020 has and is bringing us, the one constant for me is the growth and beauty of flowers.

Sharing that with others is what I’m most grateful for.

You have time to order flowers to be delivered before ‘thanksgiving’ …( which would be delivery on Wednesday)

click on ‘order flowers-local delivery’ on this web page, text or call me at 541/571-2172 .

With appreciation,




Behind the scene with flowers…

Flowers photograph so well, especially with natural light and when a professional does the photos!

Each of us have our own ‘specialty’ or ‘passion’ or ‘lane’ and I try very hard to remain grounded to that thought.  The studio is my ‘happy place’ ,  where I design, create or challenge myself to go beyond what’s comfortable. Throughout the years KRISanthemums has grown and how I appreciate everyone who has helped along the way. At  times it would have been very easy to add retail, move to another location with more exposure and things like that, but I truly feel that if you find me and love flowers like I do we are meant to work together

Writing blog posts regularly is ideal,  but sometimes life and flowers take over. When I saw that it was last May since I’d written one, it made me not only embarrassed, but wondering how the time had went so fast. Granted there were  computer issues with the web site and updates ( thanks Nick for always keeping technology going) but I am trying to be more regular and to be more personal in each post.

Follow me at @kriskrisanthemums on Instagram, where  I share photos and videos  of daily life in the studio and the gardens.




Summer bouquets …

It’s definitely fall flowers for upcoming  wedding bouquets, where did the summer go? I hope you enjoy the summer bouquets that I designed and thank you to all the brides who were truly wonderful to work with for this special day!  It’s fun to see them in a gallery! Which is my favorite? All of them of course! Photos by the Sweet Life Photography…thank you for shooting these for me.




Send some love…

For Mother’s Day send  flowers that make your mom feel good, a reminder of how much you care !

Flowers that are kept cool, the water changed every 3-4 days and the stems of the flowers are re-cut at an angle every time you change the water will help your flowers last longer.

Below is another sneak peak of what we are working with Frenchie’s Originals on.





Added Gift for Mother’s Day

Just for the first 24 orders, I am working with Frenchie’s Originals to gift each order for Mother’s Day a ‘special gift”. It is hand made, local and designed just for your mom. Can’t share exactly what it is , but here is a sneak peak!




Mother’s Day !

Every design that leaves my studio is ‘one of a kind’.

It might be the vase or the selection of blooms or the garden elements, but every order is unique as is your mom! Being different or one of a kind is a good thing, in flowers and in our mothers.

Order your bouquet using spring flowers, local peony blooms with that added touch that it was designed ‘just for your mom’.

Here are some ideas….

tulip & ranunculus time

Spring tulips  and ranunculus are featured in designs that  have been leaving the studio.Tulips from Holland, the Netherlands, my gardens or the Pacific Northwest have been used in these designs and some beautiful -gorgeous ranunculus from ‘local’ grower Peterkort Roses.

Safe , local delivery to porch, curbside or I can call ahead. Designs similar to the ones shown here can be ordered through the web site  under the heading ‘order flowers’ . Thank you to everyone who has supported my small business, by ordering flowers  …I appreciate you!

The last few weeks of local deliveries have been some of the most rewarding for me and it shows how much flowers can do for your mental and emotional well being!

Enjoy the photos of the seasonal tulips!
