Blush Love Flora (Crown and Cloth).jpg

Buffy Layton – Blush Love Flora (formally know as Crown & Cloth Floral)

I use the elements of design (such as line and shape) in my floral creations the same as I do when creating art. I love using techniques that transform ordinary flowers into something new, foraging bits and berries, and even common weeds. I tend to create lush texture and thoughtful color schemes, while keeping an elegant yet whimsical garden aesthetic. While I may be new to the floral industry, I have been designing all my life. I am thrilled at the opportunity to create again at Newfields.

I am easily inspired by my subjects and clients. My best designing occurs in the moment, as I am not a planner. I have been a professional floral designer for 24 years. There isn't anything I can't do with flowers, and I easily take on any new challenge.

Kristin Martin - Floristry, LLC.

We are an Indianapolis floral design duo that specializes in eco-friendly floral designs for weddings and events. Our work draws inspiration from nature and we believe our arrangements should feel natural in the environment they are viewed. Wherever we design, we take into account the unique characteristics of a site and arrange it in a way that uses its beauty and imperfections to our advantage. By respecting the natural variations and inconsistencies in flowers and foliage, we hope to evoke the feeling of discovering fresh garden flowers growing in unexpected places.

I love designing unique, fun, interesting and personalized florals. I am obsessed with listening to my client and providing them with florals they will love and that are and expressions of them.

I love flowers and floral design because they bring joy and connection with others!

Lisa Schmitz – Where Pigs Fly & Such

My design philosophy is based on imperfection. I strive for whimsy and florals that represent the wild of nature. Perfectly imperfect is my motto with floral design, but I also love incorporating unexpected mechanics. I relish in finding ordinary things to use in creating my floral art. Like a gutter lining to hold a moss table runner, or a bicycle wheel to create a chandelier. There is joy in the creation and that includes the parts that the flowers are held together with, bound by, and cradled in. I also enjoy the beauty along the side of any road. My grandmother taught me to keep clippers in my car, because you never know when you will see something wild and beautiful that just needs to be clipped!

Magda Namyslowski – Flowers by Magdalena

I attribute much of my inspiration from natural, European styles. I came to the East Coast in my twenties, after growing up in Warsaw, Poland. Incorporating elements from nature, really anything I can find outside during a walk is a passion of mine. I enjoy using dried, natural pieces alongside antiques as an homage to my European heritage.
