Our first featured business is Darquise Patenaude from Blue Sage Farm - Floral Design. http://bluesagefarm.ca
Darquise lives on a local farm with her family, where she relishes the lifestyle her farm life provides. Her business is run from the farm, where she grows flower gardens to incorporate in their floral arrangements, specializing in wedding flowers but also selling seasonal flower bouquets and a variety of floral arrangements. Blue Sage Farm - Floral Design has a vibrant, whimsical, slightly wild, fresh garden picked feel. By mixing flowers directly from the farm, paired with commercial blooms, Blue Sage provides a rich, healthy palette of colours and a wide variety of textures and forms.
“Carrie's endeavour is local and so is the growing of my flowers. We are both celebrating the beauty that is within our community and our farm gardens. I teach art classes to children. I am a big supporter of education and artistic expression. I believe that art heals communities and brings them together.”
On a final note, Darquise is also a fiber artist as well as floral designer. She does needle felted fairies which she has for sale both on their own, as a beautiful addition to your flower pots, or can be paired with one of her beautiful arrangements!
