our beginnings

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” – Lao Tzu

Rosemary's Garden Florals was built out of love. Our founder, Rosemary Sammons, first discovered wood florals in 2020 when she began planning her wedding. While creating all the bouquets, accessories, and arrangements for her own wedding, she fell in love with wood florals and what they symbolized to her: florals that would last as long as her love for her husband and his love for her.

In December 2020, Rosemary founded Rosemary's Garden Florals as a small craft business in Winter Haven, Florida, selling magnets and home decor with her painted flowers at craft fairs and farmers markets. As the first wood florist in her area, she delighted local residents with her creations. As she became more confident in her abilities and learned techniques to produce the highest-quality florals, she ventured into the realm of wedding and event florals.

Now in its second year of operation, Rosemary's Garden Florals specializes in customized wood wedding florals, hand-delivering to venues in the state of Florida and securely shipping to clients throughout the United States.

Wood florals from Rosemary's Garden Florals are handcrafted from all-natural renewable wood from the Shola plant, a flowering aquatic. The Shola plant grows to be about six feet tall when mature, and the wood from the Shola plant is one of the lightest woods in the world. Since your florals will be handcrafted from this special material, no two flowers are exactly the same: your wedding florals will be exceptionally unique.

Your wood florals will be hand-painted any color you wish using dip dye, paintbrush, or airbrush with incredible attention to detail. Once your arrangements are finished, they will last a lifetime as long as they are kept in the proper conditions.

To care for your wood florals, keep them indoors except for excursions. Never store wood florals in airtight containers or expose them to moisture. As long as these simple guidelines are followed, you will enjoy your everlasting florals for a lifetime.
