fleur: chicago

             If you think everything fun in flowers and fashion happens on the coasts--grab some inspiration from a fashionable Midwest shop: Fleur. Their blog and website are full of drool-worthy designs that will have you begging for more! And you know it’s a shop worth paying attention to when it has made the Knot’s Best of Chicago for three years in a row!

             Take a minute to enjoy and be inspired by their delicious combination of coral and gray in this post, or the simple, organic boutonnieres seen here! (And we LOVE how they photograph their boutonnieres by the way! So simple and yet magazine-worthy!) Happy drooling!

rave of the week…………………..……………………………

just right ribbon

             Can you have too much of a good thing? Maybe. As you well know, your twentysomethings love to pair the perfect shade of ribbon with that special dress or flower color! But sometimes, after doing several events of matching dresses, the designer’s leftovers in the ribbon stash might be a little too deep.

             Offray ribbon has just the solution! They have recently started packaging their No. 40 width colors in 10 yard bolts! The 10-yard bolt is the perfect size for wrapping a few bouquet handles while having enough for an accent on a pew bow or ceremony piece. Available now for fall in “Spun Gold”, “Oatmeal”, “Silver”, or “Moss” these budget savers are only $7.95 for 10 yards!

             The complete selection of colors also include “Iris”, “Venetian”, “Petal Peach”, “Cyclamen”, “Sherry”, “Torrid Orange”, “New Chartreuse”, “Clean Green”, “Grape”, “Navy”, and “Lemon”.

get your piece of the Husker pie

             Did you know that back in the day Husker football and carnations used to go together like… well…let’s just say really well. We marvel at stories of shops that sold hundreds of stems of football mums and carnations decked out with red and white chenille “N’s back in the day on a Husker Saturday! Your twentysomethings are saddened by the way the industry has changed and that floral firms are loosing out on business that they had for years.

             But wait! We are hearing rumblings that this retro trend is back! For a small investment of $3.95 (for 100 chenille stems) you can make up a few Husker (or insert your favorite team here) carnations or football mums and promote your shop! You might surprise yourself! If you don’t have it--you can’t sell it!
