Fall, you're kind of a babe.

Flower crowns just have a way of making littles (and not so littles) feel special. In other news, do you see my teeth? Feeling lucky they're all still in my mouth after an almost disastrous ladder mishap today. It ended up just being really scary, and not actually disastrous, thanks to one of the men in the office I was "chalking*" for, acting on "a prompting that I needed to stay close to the ladder for a minute". No words can describe the gratitude I feel for his willingness to listen to the quiet voice that spoke to him. Spent the rest of today feeling a little shaky, but with a lot of good perspective. *separate chalk IG account coming soon. Photo / @vlentine

I love it when things work out. Several weeks ago, when I was heading to the mart to pick up flowers for our flower crown tutorial with @prettysmitten, when a client called to see if I might have flowers for a friend who needed a little TLC. Since I was buying flowers already, it was easy to add to my order and make her something special and pretty. This answers one of my most FAQ: Do you take small orders? Answer: I do....kinda/sorta/sometimes! On Valentine's Day, Mother's Day AND when you line your small order up with an existing event. As a non brick and mortar, event based florist, I've found this approach to be the right fit. There you have it....a very long answer. Bonus: I brought these pretties to our shoot before I sent them off to my client because these ladies were begging for a close up. They got it, thanks to @vlentine πŸ’•#flowerstagram #roses #riceflower #scabiosa #eucalyptus

Had a day off from flowers.....so naturally, I spent the whole day thinking about flowers. I guess that's a good sign, right? Photo from my flower crown tutorial with @prettysmitten (yes, her home is super lovely); captured by @vlentine PS / link to our flower crown tutorial is in my profile πŸ‘†πŸ».

Love it when the photographer sends a sneak peek. Yesterday's gorgeous weather was what wedding dreams are made of. I shouldn't say it, for fear of jinxing myself, but I've been pretty lucky in the wedding/weather category this year. Please bless that my good luck continues......

I don't love posting iPhone pics of flowers.....but then that beetle crawled into the shot so I had to. #obv

Perfect weather and all of this. Not mad about it. Dahlias will be arriving at midnight with my mom, who's doing all the kid things tomorrow while I wedding. Why so late, you ask? She's taking her 90+ year old boss to a drag show for her birthday. And that's not even the πŸ˜‚ part. Are you ready? My mom just told me that she didn't know what a drag queen was until last week 😳. I don't understand. I'm so confused. That's all. Back to bouquets.....

Details. Plus, gimme all the floral invites.

Last weeks cart pull with Shelley (πŸ™ŒπŸ») from @mayeshcarlsbad. Added in some @ellarosefarm roses and some @caliwholesaleflowers dahlias to round it all out. It takes a village and flower villages are the best kind. Excited to see what tomorrow's cart looks like.....🌿✨🌿.

Spent a really fun morning a few weeks back with Elizabeth, from @prettysmitten , and her adorable daughter, Charlotte, making flower crowns. If you want to know exactly how I make 'em, you're in luck! Link to (a pretty detailed) tutorial in my profile. Hope you love it as much as we loved making it! Also, if you read the beginning of the tutorial/post, know that I was probably listening to something ridiculous when Elizabeth walked by my garage/studio. Glad she reached out anyway.....haha. Beautiful photos by @vlentine πŸ’•

Watching coverage of Hurricane Harvey while working on a couple of chalk projects.... when my brain needs a rest, I switch over to @fixerupperhgtv. Also just ordered some special foliage for an upcoming wedding, from a Texas grower. It's basically all Texas all day. Feeling grateful to be in my dry house in (very) sunny So. Cal. Just donated what I could. I'm trying hard to be better at donating little bits where I can and not getting too hung up on doing it "perfectly" and to the "perfect" organization. Overthinking things almost always stops me from doing anything. On repeat these days in my #veryright brain: done is better than perfect, done is better than perfect, done is better........

We're in full wedding planning mode over here. Super excited for some upcoming September weddings....one is even including these gorgeous watermelon colored garden roses. Don't you love them? Pretty Newport Beach wedding from this summer photographed by @elizajphotos. Loving the all white bridesmaids dresses. Only "all white" trend we're currently supporting. Diversity makes the 🌎 go round.
