Extraordinary Gifts

Once in a while someone crosses your path who makes you stop everything and pay attention to their incredible talent. Now, I had seen the name Christopher Grigas before because he's the friend of a friend on facebook, but today I saw one of his floral designs for the first time and it stopped me in my tracks. I had to see more! There is a gallery of photos on his website with his creations from weddings, flower shows, and his own collection that is so inventive and stunningly beautiful it made me tear up.

The autumn arrangements with their gorgeous jewel toned gerbera daisys, berries, and orchids, summer garden wedding bouquets of lush pink roses and green hydrangeas, and Easter baskets filled with periwinkle grape hyacinth, pink tulips, magenta roses, and green orchids, will send you running to the wholesale florist to load up on flowers to fill your home.

Visit Christopher's website and blog and soak up some of the inspired creativity.

Don't you think some people are just gifted by God to work with this beautiful creation of His? I love flowers and it amazes me how some people can arrange them in such unusual and unique ways. I look forward to visiting his site.

Beautiful! I envy those who can make the simplest of flowers into a real work of art!

What talent, indeed. I have difficulty putting one rose in a bud vase and having it look OK!! I thoroughly enjoyed looking at his website! Thanks.

What a lucky gal you are to have your sis and her family be your next door neighbors for the next year...a true blessing for all!

Hope you're having a great summer. Dana
