So I found a source for vines for not only Garth Manor, but for the Bavarian Cafe as well! There is an artisan in Canada who makes the most incredible flowers! Her name is Monica Lavoie aka "Peaches". Here is her link:
I have spoken with her directly and she is putting together a relatively huge batch of Geranium, Sunflower, Grape vines, and other flower kits for me.
After trying to come up with a vine on my own that would look good creeping up the sides of the manor, I gave up. Nothing looked good. I have ordered 12 sets of vines from her and will be assembling them as soon as they arrive. I will post pictures of each step of assembly.
The kits for the Bavarian Cafe will include over two hundred stems so it will be time consuming but the results should be stunning. I am truly excited to get started on this. I have also created a blog dedicated to the upcoming Cafe project. Please swing by and join! Unlike the Garth Manor project, this site will follow the project from wood selection to design, cutting, assembly, and finishing. It is going to be fun! And probably filled with some frustration as well! Here is the link:
