I wanted to take a little break from wedding related things and post a few images of some floral delight. These blooms were from my display at the Just Add Love Wedding Show back in February and I had fun arranging them myself. I discovered stock, tall stems of puffy blush pink flowers, which smell amazing and also these little delicate cactus blooms that lasted for quite a while. Perhaps down the road, I would love to delve into flower arranging a little bit more as my skills are very limited (obviously!) and have been following a few master florists on Instagram for inspiration. If you are keen on adding a few extra pretties to your Instagram feed, I would highly recommend to check out the following:
I have been following Erin’s work for a very long time now and it has been really exciting watching her flower farm in Washington explode. She has been inspiring the floral industry for years with her locally-grown blooms and arranging in a manner similar to the Dutch and Flemish paintings of the Baroque era. She is really active on social media so you can be sure there are always lots of things to look at or read on her blog.
LITTLE FLOWER SCHOOL
I couldn’t tell if they are on Instagram or not but the Little Flower School based out of Brooklyn in NY is still something that is on my radar. The school began in 2008 with two New York florists and has created a great sensation in the floral design world with their unique combinations and philosophy. The history of the school is interesting and the florists that run it are equally interesting as well.
CLARE DAY FLOWERS
And for something a little bit more local, Clare Day Flowers at Red Damsel Farms has a gorgeous well-curated Instagram feed as well. Located just outside of Victoria, it is definitely on my “must visit” list. Clare’s style is organic, simple and fresh. You can actually read a really interesting article with Clare on the current farm to centrepiece trend here.
If you know of any others, please let me know! I am always keen on finding new and exciting flower farms or designers online.
