Who is Dill & Poppy?
Amy & Lisa Miller
Daughter & Mom
Amy is a secretary at State Farm Insurance who loves to bake, cook and create and exciting display of yummy foods for any occasion.
If you give her a theme, you can be guaranteed that the food she makes will fit right into that AND it will be delicious.
One of her most important aspects of food is to use fresh ingredients and she prefers to make everything from scratch.
Lisa is a program technician for Farm Service Agency.
She goes to bed dreaming up new and exciting ideas for the next event.
It's all planned out in her head.
She loves to create a atmosphere that follows a theme from start to finish.
Garlands, chandeliers and any ceiling decor are a few of her favorite things.
What is Dill & Poppy?
Dill & Poppy was created out of what was once
which Lisa started in 2008.
Because of Amy's interest in bringing the food into Lisa's parties we have begun an adventure together doing not just the decor but the food also.
Events do not have to include both aspects, however, they are available if chosen.
People have been asking why the name "Dill & Poppy"?
Dill is the name Amy chose to represent her food contributions.
She loves the flavor of dill and it just seemed like a fitting name.
Poppy is the name chosen by Lisa to represent the decor contributions.
She has always loved the name Poppy.
When she was little her parents cared for a young girl with the nickname of Poppy so maybe it started there...who knows. :)
was chosen because we feel that celebrating life everyday is what God intends for each one of us to do.
Where is Dill & Poppy?
Dill & Poppy is located in the center of North Dakota.
We are willing to travel some distance to do a party....hey, we travel to go shopping!
Lisa's Grandmother, Amy's Great Grandmother who is 91 and in the nursing home now is the one in our family who always loved to entertain.
She was always an amazing cook and everyone loved to eat at her home.
It seemed like she could set the table with the yummiest food with little effort.
You would always know at any holiday she would have her home decorated in theme and even had group games for us to play.
Her gifts were always wrapped so pretty with little adornments and at Christmas there were always extra empty boxes wrapped just for under the tree.
The header picture of our blog is from her 90th Birthday celebration in which all of her salt & pepper shaker collection was displayed.
Dill & Poppy intends on becoming an Event Planning Business that brings smiles to Celebrations every time.
We intend to start an online shoppe to sell some of the party supplies once we get things lined up.
Well there you have it.
