DIY Flower Buckets

STILL BOOKING Do-It-Yourself Wedding and Event Flowers for 2018

Our sustainably grown flowers are available in bulk for special events and weddings in the Berkshires, Columbia County, and the Capitol Region. Flowers cut on our farm, just for you, bring the unique and spontaneous beauty of fresh, seasonal blooms to your event.

DIY Flowers are available by the bucket from July-September. For $75(plus sales tax) you receive 75-80 stems in well balanced mix of focal flowers, textural accents, and greenery. All buckets contain a seasonal mix of blooms chosen by the farmer. We do not promise certain flowers or specific colors and quantities, instead we harvest a complimentary mix of what is most beautiful and bountiful at the time of your event. You may specify a bright, bold, or soft palette for your buckets but design consultation is not included.

Before booking your date, consider these questions:

  • Do you have a flexible vision of how your event flowers will look?
  • Are you passionate about working with seasonal, local, organically grown flowers?
  • Do you have enough people, time, and a space to create your arrangements?
  • Does someone in your party have experience arranging flowers or do you have the opportunity to practice flower design before your event?

Now for the details….

Paying for your flowers:

DIY buckets are $75 each plus sales tax. We request a 50% advanced payment to book your date. This payment will be deducted from your total bill and the balance will be due upon pick up.

Picking up your flowers:

We recommend picking up your flowers a day or two before your event. Our flowers usually last for a week or more, but their ability to hold up in direct sunlight or last out of water will decrease over time.  We do not recommend picking up flowers the day of your event.

Tuesday pick up:

@New Leaf Farm, New Lebanon, NY from 2:30-6pm or by appointment

@Tuesday Delmar Farmers Market, Delmar, NY from 2:30-6pm

Friday pick up:

@New Leaf Farm, New Lebanon, NY by appointment

Saturday pick up:

@New Leaf Farm, New Lebanon, NY by appointment

@Saturday Delmar Farmers Market, Delmar, NY from 8-1

Storing and Transporting Flowers:

Your flowers should be stored in a cool place out of the sun. An air conditioned room or a cool garage are two good options.

When you pick up your flowers you may want to have a tarp or blanket to protect the vehicle from splashing. Note that 3 buckets fill up the average back seat and more can fit in a van or SUV. Flowers love air-conditioned vehicles but we do not recommend picking up your flowers in a pick-up truck.

To transport your arrangements to your event make sure you have materials to pack and secure your flowers to prevent breakage and spilling

What’s in a Bucket:

75-80 seasonal stems in a well balanced mix of focal flowers, textural accents, and greenery. Each bucket should provide you with enough flowers for approximately 5-7 qt Mason jar designs; extrapolate for larger vases, more table settings, and personal flowers.

What else you might need:

A good work space that can get messy, enough room to spread out and tables at a good working height

Clean Vases and containers

Tools for arranging: Pruners, Shears, floral tape, ribbon, wires, pins, etc

 Time: to pick up, design, transport, and set up your flowers
