The Flower Field

is a dream born into existence with the desire to incorporate locally grown flowers and foliage in our designs and arrangements. Our passion is to lovingly cultivate our fields, nurture creativity and inspire beauty to all. The hard work and tender touch we give to our flowers from the tiniest of seedlings and bulbs, give way to a beautiful harvest that we excitedly reap. From early spring as our tulips burst forth, while our foxglove and dianthus welcome the beginning of summer, and our dahlias welcome the autumn season that brings a golden glow upon the Outer Banks.
  • "Dorothy and her team at Bells & Whistles made our wedding PERFECT!!! They provided the most creative and gorgeous decorations and flowers. We got married on the beach and their mix of bright pops of color, lights, and natural elements truly set the stage for our amazing day. Dorothy was very responsive to emails and phone calls and she shared ideas with me openly. When I needed to modify our budget, she worked with me until we found something that worked for us-which really meant a lot to me! I can't say enough about how beautiful and fun everything looked. I HIGHLY recommend their services!!!"
  • "Dorothy and her team blew us away on wedding day!!! We trusted Dorothy to work with my favorite colors but free to create her completely own ceremony and reception decor, floral arrangements, bouquets, boutonnieres, and everything else you can think of. I wanted our venue to be totally transformed into someone we've never seen before. I couldn't dream up a better wedding if I tried. Every little detail was absolutely breathtaking! Our families and guests are STILL talking about the decorations and florals! It was a complete dream and we are so thankful for Dorothy's talent and creativity to make such a memorable and beautiful masterpiece of a wedding. DIY is not something you want to get into- hire someone who knows what they're doing and can give you the stress-free dream wedding you really want!"
  • I am sitting here trying to come up with the words to describe Dorothy and the flowers she created for my wedding but I am at a loss for words. She took my ideas, inspiration, and vision, and turned it into something that was so beautiful that I couldn't have come up with it in my wildest dreams. My bouquet was the most beautiful bouquet I have ever laid eyes on. Every single detail was thought of and they all arrived on time and couldn't have been more perfect. If ANYONE is looking for a florist and event designer, you have to go to Dorothy. Easily one of the best investments we made for our wedding...
  • "Dorothy and her team are the absolute best! My husband and I were married at the Sanderling Resort in Duck, N.C.; the ceremony was on the event lawn and the reception in the pavilion. Choosing Dorothy and her team to create our dream wedding was a no-brainer - Dorothy is so talented and makes your wedding her priority. This may sound a bit hokey, but Bells and Whistles did not just decorate our space, they created an experience for our guests that matched exactly with our vision for the wedding - only better! The flowers for my bouquet were so fresh - because Dorothy picked them from her own garden! We had so many compliments on how beautiful, classic, and romantic the design was - I highly recommend Dorothy and her team to any bride getting married in the Outer Banks!"

  • "Dorothy, Ryan sent our photos the other day, and it was such a joy to relive all of the special memories of our wedding day 09/23/17. Thank you for being such a big part of it. Your work was truly amazing and your immense talent lent such beauty to the details of our day. I absolutely loved the direction you took with our centerpieces, altar piece, and my own bouquet. It was all truly gorgeous. The true star, however, may have been the truly stunning necklace you made for our Friday welcome party. Looking through photos was a reminder of how stunning all of your work was, and I'm so happy the photos will last longer than the flowers themselves. It was such a pleasure to work with you, and I feel blessed to have had your talent front and center on our wedding day. Thank you so much!"
