    Amy, always nice to see new ideas for packaging and delivery. Love the images of Flower Market Fridays via Rachel Ashwell.

  2. I love this post! So inspiring to see other designers and I love the behind-the-scenes shots.

  3. Lots of great ideas! Thanks for the links to the designers.

  4. Kim Sanders says:

    Just wanted to say a big thank you! I love seeing art with nature pics on your blog! My first and sometimes only blog to look at daily is definitely BB! Thank you so much! I wish that I just had a little more time in the day to make comments or participate! I’m enjoying my kids right now (growing so fast!) and filling the gaps with flowers! A million thank you’s for all the amazing inspiration you give me daily! It really helps and keeps me inspired!!!

  5. Janet says:

    I love seeing packaging and delivery ideas. That’s probably something I should work on. Maybe I just need to hire an assistant for that stuff…

  6. Becca says:

    I love the boutonnieres on top of the moss! Great idea, I may have to steal…er borrow!
    Thanks for the inspiration!
