Brides say “I Do” to locally grown flowers New book on using seasonal blooms in bridal bouquets features Lima-area flower farm FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: March 10, 2014 CONTACT: Kay Studer, Buckeye Blooms 419-231-6089, buckeyeblooms@gmail.com Lynn Byczynski, Co-author of book 785-748-0605, lynn@growingformarket.com LIMA, OH-- When Carolyn Maxfield walks down the aisle this May, instead of holding staid white roses, she'll carry a bouquet of seasonal flowers featuring fluffy peonies, spikes of larkspur and textural elements like buttonbush buds and lacy ladies mantle from Buckeye Blooms, a flower farm and floral design studio near Lima. Owned and operated by Kay Studer and her daughter Susan Studer King, Buckeye Blooms offers seasonal and sustainably grown flowers for weddings and special events. Local flowers are the hottest new trend in the floral industry and the subject of the new book Fresh from the Field Wedding Flowers, which features several designs by Buckeye Blooms. Fresh from the Field Wedding Flowers celebrates the beauty of seasonal and sustainable flowers. From heirloom narcissus, ranunculus and freesia in the spring to dramatic café au lait dahlias, viburnum and dark ninebark foliage in the fall, the bouquets showcase the floral bounty of each season. The book also helps DIY brides further personalize their big day with local flowers. Fresh from the Field Wedding Flowers offers step-by-step instruction on how to take a bucket of farm fresh flowers and create magazine-worthy floral designs and boutonnieres. The book includes a bonus instructional DVD by Erin Benzakein, one of the nation’s foremost “farmer florists”—a growing group of entrepreneurs who are both flower farmers and floral designers. “We want to give people skills to promote and use local flowers” states Lynn Byczynski, a Kansas-based flower farmer and co-author of the book. “Weddings are a great opportunity to use seasonal flowers. Fresh from the Field showcases the beauty of local flowers from farms like Buckeye Blooms.” Some credit the red-hot local foods movement for the increasing interest in local, seasonal flowers. Meanwhile, high- end designers are creating a buzz by incorporating seasonal flowers in their floral designs. The Association of Specialty Cut Flower Growers has noted a decisive uptick in membership over the course of the past two years, as new flower farms take root and established farms convert a portion of their land to flower production.

Conscientious consumers are increasingly aware of where and how the products they buy are produced. Most flowers sold in the U.S. are imported, primarily from Colombia and Ecuador, so they are less fresh, less fragrant, and costly to ship. Mass production also means there is less variety. “There are lots of social, economic and environmental reasons to buy locally grown flowers,” Studer said. “But most of all, brides are blown away by the beauty of fresh, seasonal flowers.” —30— For contact information for brides using Buckeye Blooms wedding flowers or to use high quality, high resolution photos of flowers or bridal bouquets, contact Buckeye Blooms at: 419-231-6089 or buckeyeblooms@gmail.com For additional information about Buckeye Blooms go to: www.buckeyeblooms.com Fresh from the Field Wedding Flowers can be ordered at: www.freshfromthefieldweddings.com
