A number of followers always inquire as to what does the name Uptown Acorn mean or where did it originate. Today, I hope to explain it to you.
I have always loved creating arrangements and wreaths. I have decorated doors and mantles seasonally of numerous families through the years. In 2007, I set out on my own with a part-time business, The Acorn at Wisteria Hill. The acorn is the French symbol for prosperity. I have always loved the symbol. From such a small acorn grows a lovely, majestic oak. Wisteria Hill was named for the hill of wisteria that grew in the yard of our Atlanta home.
The two names were placed together for The Acorn at Wisteria Hill. You can see some of my works HERE.
My logo was designed by New Orleans own Alexa Pulitzer. After a number of designs, I finally settled on the antlers surrounding an acorn. I love it.

Upon my move to NOLA in 2008, I rented a space at Le Boulevard Marketplace in Metairie where I sold my botanicals. When I started teaching again, it just became too much to maintain, and I ceased the booth rental.
Fast forward to 2012 when at the suggestion of BFF Amanda of Dixie Delights, I made my foray into the world of blogging. Many names were discussed with many folks. The one that stuck was Uptown Acorn. Uptown is the area of the city that I reside, and you already know the significance of the acorn symbol. I like the ring of the name, and I love that I can use my Alexa Pulitzer designed logo once again.
Now you know how the Uptown Acorn came to fruition. Thanks for reading and thanks for following. I love to hear from you daily. Thanks too to my blog designer Linda of Life and Linda.
