Nestled among the rolling hills of Loudoun County is Hope Flower Farm, a farm inspired by hope and providing a rural retreat and design destination. At Hope Flower Farm, visitors may take classes in floral design, enjoy local farm to table cuisine, walk the garden, meditate, and relax in the countryside.

“The garden inspires me. Finding unique elements, things that are aren’t typically used in floral design –that is how I approach design. I’m always looking for inspiration,” explains Holly Chapple, the founder and owner of Holly Heider Chapple Flowers in Waterford, Virginia.

Holly provides a step-by-step article on how to create a floral arrangement for your next summer or fall gathering.  To keep reading, check out the Summer/Fall issue of Northern Virginia Style & Living.
