The Bloom Buff
Q A&
with florist Emily Herzig
From Boston to Bar Harbor and everywhere
in between, Emily Herzig's floral designs have
decorated weddings and events throughout New
England. Herzig and her team work out of her
studio in Littleton, creating distinctive bouquets
and floral works of art from fresh seasonal flowers.
Her signature style is as unique as her personality,
expressing life's beauty through floral design.
" If you have a favorite
flower or memory of
flowers in your life, it's
great to have those
flowers in season for
your wedding. "
Q: What do you love most
inspires you?
about what you do? What
A: In my work, I am most inspired by
the couples and families that
I work with. I hear stories about family
traditions and get to consider the
meaning and value of relationships. Of
course nature, the woods, wildflower
fields, manicured gardens, architecture,
Dutch Master paintings, the changing
of the seasons, and all of those things
inspire me, but at a deeper level, I really
am most inspired by the people I work
with and constant creative challenges
they give to me.
Q: How would you describe your
A: I describe my design style as
design style?
" garden inspired " and " artistic. " I
hear people say that they see my work
and can recognize it right away, so " distinct "
and " personal " are also in there.

The design work I do for weddings
and events is created with a purpose
to convey specific feelings and express
meanings, so I also describe my style
as poetic, romantic and emotional.
Q: When should couples start
A: In my opinion, flowers should be
thinking about florals?
one of the first things a couple
thinks about when they are planning
their wedding. If you have a favorite
flower or memory of flowers in your
life, it's great to have those flowers in
season for your wedding. Flowers are
also a big part of a wedding budget,
so you should consider that as you
are deciding how many attendants
you want in your bridal party and how
many guests you are going to invite.
Depending on the size of your wedding
and how big your floral budget
and flower dreams are, it makes sense
to secure your floral vendor eight
months to a year prior to your
wedding day.
Q:
Do you have a favorite type of
arrangement?
A: My favorite designs are wild,
organic installations and lush
garden-inspired table centerpieces. I
love compote-style containers, trailing
foraged vines, and flowers that hang
from the ceiling or look like they are
growing up from the ground. I like
trying to figure out how I'm going to
implement an idea when I'm writing
floral contracts.
Q:
Which flowers would you
recommend based on time of
year/season, color palette and budget?
A: Regardless of budget, consider
the season and place you are
getting married. Look for a florist who
works closely with local flower farmers
or someone who grows their own flowers.
Save money by choosing flowers
that can be sourced from within the
region you are getting married. I have
worked closely with local flower farmers
for years, and we are building our own
cutting gardens at our farm, Granite
View Gardens, in Vermont. We go
to great lengths to follow sustainable
design practices. Also, there is nothing
better than a garden full of your wedding
flowers someday, not just a cut
bouquet from your local florist, although
that is great too! In general, and by
season, I recommend evergreens,
paperwhite, citrus and mimosa for
winter, and tulips, hyacinth, anemone
and ranunculus for spring. For summer,
I suggest dahlias, zinnias, cosmos,
garden roses and crabapples. And for
fall, go with dahlias, wild grasses and
pods, oak and maple branches.
