a wedding sketchbook + 40 petals

             Michelle Mospens is a custom invitation designer and blogger extraordinaire. She has been sharing her love of color on a wedding sketchbook and has just begun a new blog dedicated to wedding flowers, 40 petals.

             Check out a wedding sketchbook for endless color palette options. Michelle is true color connoisseur and is up to date with newest wedding trends. Her post featuring this year’s color of the year (aqua!) paired with gold is stunning. Or check out her feature of Amy Atlas’s yummy Aqua and Bubblegum pink desert table.

             While 40 petals is in it’s beginning stages, Michelle knows good design and is sure to keep the fun features coming (want to learn how to make crepe paper flowers?). She is also looking for floral designers’ web pages to link on her page (for free!). 40 petals will link four designers from each state.

purple gerbs

             Your twentysomethings predict purple gerbs to be the next mini trend in cut flowers! This week alone we’ve had multiple calls for them. It’s no wonder with shades of plum and purple being consistent players in the last few fashion and wedding seasons. Looking for the perfect shade? Try ‘Figo’ or ‘Blue Eye’, both deep lavender standard size gerbs or miniature ‘Picture Perfect’ or ‘Pimpernel’. In stock this week!

rave of the week…………………..……………………………

tis the season

             For peonies that is! There is (almost) nothing that your two twentysomethings love more than a perfectly pristine peony. With spring wedding season upon us and brides looking for the best blooms (at the best prices), we want to let you know we’ve got you covered! California grown peonies in stunning reds, corals and pinks are almost ready. Order yours today for your Memorial Day events at $2.99/ stem!
