Flowers have always played an important role in my life. My mother has inspired me since my earliest childhood, whenever she was making a bunch of flowers. First I created little bunches of wildflowers and the older I became the more I refined that art. While we were opening our Schloss Weissenhaus for weddings I learned a lot about the professional side of flower arrangements and what it means to brighten up the most wonderful day in life with flowers.
It is one of my greatest pleasures to embellish a wedding, an anniversary or birthday with the perfect flower arrangements. I love manifesting the wishes of my clients. There may be a flower of special significance for the party, or a story that wants to be expressed with colors and forms...A little interview with my clients will help me to find the perfect idea. I have a great collection of vases of all sorts of materials which I can offer, if the client does not want to use his own vases.
The language of flowers
Since men walk on earth flowers have played a special role. They are carriers of symbolic meanings. In Egypt, Mesopotamia or Rome they have not only served as a decoration, they had their very own language. Through the changing times and cultures they were carriers of messages. It is a great pleasure collecting this knowledge and writing or speaking about it. You will find talks and lectures under "events".
Fairytales and flowers
Many fairytales speak about miraculous flowers, that have to be found by young men to safe the princess. Flowers that help receiving a child or offering a key to secret treasures. In my own little stories flowers often play an important role. Since my early childhood I have been searching for the blue flower, which is guarded by a dragon. I am convinced that most of us dreamt about finding a magical flower to bring us youth, health, love or power...which is yours?
