[wanderlust project] cymbidium floral | exeter, nh

Arranging a bowl of flowers in the morning can give a sense of quiet in a crowded day - 
like writing a poem or saying a prayer
{anne morrow lindbergh}


wan.der.lust - strong longing for or impulse toward

as dorothy once said, "if i ever go looking for my heart's desire again, i won't look any further then my own backyard." in this spirit, my new project, wanderlust, is born. it is this wish i have to explore the delights around me, that has allowed me to feature some amazing talent through my lens. my wanderlust lead me right to cymbidium floral in the incredibly hip town of exeter, new hampshire. i had such fun getting a glimpse into a day in the life of the delightful floral designers of cymbidium floral - stacey and theresa. let me tell you, these gals are artists in every sense of the word. and busy artists too. they didn't stop moving for one second.lead by owner-designer jessica christofersen,{new mom to the amazing cooper} cymbidium provides unique designed arrangements in their signature lush and low style. gorgeous flowers greet you upon entering this charming shop. artfully displayed, it is an enchantment for your senses. on the day of my visit, the designers were very busy preparing for a weekend of weddings and i was immediately drawn to the different flowers and mosses and grasses they were using to create gorgeous wreaths and bouquets and boutonnieres and centerpieces. just beautiful and radiating the season. and so different. that's what i love about this shop. something new every time. 
along with the beautiful array of flowers and fauna, cymbidium offers unique accompaniments. from soy based candles to hand-crafted jewelry by local artists, letter press cards and beautiful emersonmade flower pins. gorgeous custom lamps and middle kingdom vases.
if you find yourself strolling down water street in exeter, stop in and say hello. bring a bloom home. tell them meg sent you. xo
