Pocketful of Posies is very proud to be a new member of Portland Buy Local!
It is of the utmost importance to us as small business owners, and Portlanders, to support our local economy!  And, as part of the green industry here in Maine, it is equally important that we promote our local farmers and growers.

If you are an individual who believes that bolstering locally owned and independent businesses is important and necessary, we encourage you to
SUPPORT Portland Buy Local!
Every membership counts! And your involvement in the campaign only stands to strengthen your ties to the community!

Thank you to Kristen Smith, Danielle Marks, Thalassa Raasch, and Mary Allen Lindeman for the warm welcome!

September in Maine

IMG_0990

Wow!  The summer months have kept us busy!
We’ve made some wonderful new friends in town and have enjoyed working with restaurants and clients from last year as well.  Thank you so much to all who have supported us in our second summer season and in turn have savored the amazing abundance of local flowers that we are able to bring from local farms!

Dan and Vicki Marion at Fresh Pickins Farm in Limington and Norm Jordan at The Farm in Cape Elizabeth have been generous and consistent flower suppliers and we have adored every beautiful thing they provide each week.

We have made a wonderful new connection with the Inn By the Sea in Scarborough, Maine and look forward to bringing them beautiful floral event decor in the future!

As always, we look forward to the change in seasons and all that Maine has to offer!
Keep an eye out for our holiday offerings (think centerpieces, wreaths, and garlands) in the fall and winter months and of course our Bouquet of the Month as a wonderful gift idea throughout the year!

Check out our Facebook page for weekly updates too!

Happy Fall!

Celebrate Summer!

June is here and summer solstice is a few short weeks away!

Are you tending to and watching those seeds you planted a short time ago sprout into beautiful, soon-to-be fruits, vegetables and flowers!?

If not, there is still time!  You can purchase  local vegetable and flower plants
at your local farmer’s market, greenhouse or farm and plant them in your own mini-garden at home!  Whatever shape your garden may take – a series of containers on the balcony or windowsill, a whiskey barrel or small raised bed in your yard, or a garden planted directly  in the earth – get your hands in the dirt and feel grounded!!

And enjoy the wonderful fruits of your labor!
