Mercedes Cortazar Anderson’s family has been in the flower business for years. She carries on the family tradition with Mercedes Flowers, adding her own speical twist to arrangements. Tiny jeweled hair ornaments? Twist them into the center of flowers and greenery to add some extra sparkle to a centerpiece. Willow vine from your backyard? It makes an interesting addition when coiled around the stems of a bouquet and seen through a clear vase. Mercedes says just tak a look around you–inspiration and unique additions for your next arrangement are just waiting to be discovered.
