Hey There 

Happy Friday! Last week I spent time in Texas celebrating a best friend's wedding and I had the joy of doing her flowers. Texas will always feel like home to me. I love the laughter that comes with being around friends and family that know you best. I love the unrelenting warmth of the sun and having tex mex for every meal. It's always a sweet time being back in Texas and I hope you can retreat somewhere familiar this weekend. For me, it's not Texas this weekend but I am going to a festival down the street from my home. Food, crafts, and shopping are always life giving and comforting to me.  

Happy weekend. K

Spring Favorites | Floral Print Dresses

Spring Favorites | Floral Print Dresses 

It's wedding season and for me that means so many things. It's my busiest time of the year as a florist and it's also when I get to celebrate friends and family at their weddings. I've spent the better part of the past two weeks scouring the internet for floral print dresses, so I'm sharing some of my favorite finds. Why floral print you ask? Well, if I'm going to make small talk at all these weddings about my job, I might as well look the part!  

Above: Found at a new favorite store, Piper and Scoot

I'm always so nervous about breaking the 'no white' rule at weddings. If you know where we stand on this, let me know because I've had some very stressful moments while online shopping.  Still, this one is a favorite and I think the ushers would let me in. Found at Anthropologie

Embracing tropical florals both in design and print this season. This one is so fun and I can see wearing it at a laid back summer wedding.

ASOS is a go to.

Surprise! This is a jumpsuit and for that it needed to be included. The vine moments in the print are also really beautiful and soft yellow could not be more spring.  

Happy Shopping! Kaylyn

Happy Friday 

I've spent most of this week listening to new podcasts, planning florals for wedding season, and traveling to Texas. It's Cinco De Mayo! Have a taco and a margarita and cheers to the weekend.

April Workshop Recap

Our April workshop was such a great way to celebrate spring. Over and over again I'm inspired by our attendees and their love of flowers, design, and the creative process. It's a special time where we enjoy treats from local makers and design flowers that I imagine are enjoyed or given to someone they love. It's an ideal Saturday and I would encourage you to come if you're able! Experience isn't necessary and I have found it to be a refreshing time for everyone involved--flowers have that effect on us.  :)

Thank you to S P A C E Boston, Mayflour Confections, and Nectar & Green for making us all feel pampered for the day! And a huge thank you to Gabby for capturing our time together.

We have something new for you (and for us)! Every Friday we'll be compiling a list of things that have kept us inspired throughout the week. I'm hoping that this series is life giving and inspiring to us as a community. What are you loving? Share it with us in the comments or email us and we may include it the following week. 

What we're loving...

This artist replaced billboards with photos of the landscapes they're blocking.  

Monika gave me this book for my birthday and I just finished it! I would highly recommend Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less for your end table.  

Foraged Flora is a beautiful new book by Sarah Lonsdale and Laurie Frankel.  

Swimsuit season is almost here and Kortni Jean actually has me excited.  One pieces rule. 

It's not too late to plant a cutting garden. Of course you can support your local florist but growing your flowers is a special experience and can be such a valuable lesson in care and patience. 

Are you having friends or family over for dinner this weekend? This recipe has been my party trick for the past few dinners.  

How I built This is such an amazing podcast. A few favorites: Kendra Scott, Crate and Barrel, Patagonia, Instagram, and Radio One.  

Happy Weekend. K
