I stumbled across this wholesale home & garden product line recently and fell in love with many of their vessels. Think European style with a modern contemporary edge…

Design Love Fest

Design Love Fest has been a consistent stop for me in my “me time” over the last year. Bri Emery founded the amazing lifestyle blog and I promise it’s worth a visit. She is the mastermind behind the Design Love Fest aesthetic. I found one of my favorite screensavers through her blog and was so excited when I discovered it this week as an iPhone cover (watercolor image pictured top right)! Every floral designer should have a botanical phone cover, don’t you think?

Many of you read Emily’s ribbon dyeing tutorial on Botanical Brouhaha last year. We had a tremendous response to the post. Well, guess what? Now you can buy Emily’s ribbon on Etsy if you don’t have time to make it yourself! Not only are her products exquisite, but her images are stunning because she’s a floral designer/grower in addition to making the plant dyed ribbon by hand! Fleuropean is a dreamy world you’ll want to visit (virtually, of course).

Ella Rose Farm

Nancy Teasley has created some of the most extraordinary work over the years through her floral design studio, Oak & The Owl, so you can imagine the splash she made recently with the opening of her newest endeavor, Ella Rose Farm. Nancy grows roses specifically suited for wedding and event work on her small family-run Southern California garden rose farm. The move toward growing was genius. Who better to grow roses for your wedding and event work than an accomplished floral designer with years of experience executing successful (and stunning) events? Check out the Ella Rose Farm Instagram page for more details.
