TV Pilot & Arthur Erickson's Garden

Welcome to my new blog! I will be posting updates and photos of new stuff we are working on at the store, new flowers available by the season, and new products we are carrying. I really hope you enjoy it and would love to hear any comments or suggestions.
Last week we worked on a presentation for a new TV Pilot...hopefully it gets picked up as a pilot & ends up getting filmed here. The scene we worked on was a wedding scene set at Cecil Green House at UBC. (Isn't everything filmed at Cecil Green? - We have done hundreds of sets for TV and film here over the years.) As it was a 4 day shoot, we mixed some artificial fruits and flowers along with the fresh flowers for longevity. Here are a few photos of our very traditional wedding set...

On a completely different note....I am proud to count the distinguished Architect Arthur Erickson among my clients and friends. A fabulous way to herald the arrival of Spring in Vancouver is to visit his Point Grey Garden.

The Arthur Erickson House & Garden Foundation offers guided tours of the world famous Architect's garden every Thursday at 5pm April 17 to mid October. (Or, at other times for groups of 4 or more by special arrangement) Cost is $10 per person. Reserve at 604-738-4195 or by email at

The compact garden set on 2 residential lots in Vancouver's Point Grey, reflects Erickson's passion for Japanese gardens. For more Information visit

Maybe I'll see you there!
