handmade | flower garland

the arts + crafts loving little girl in me loves the crafty opportunities that shop ownerdom presents. the shop has a bay window facing rose avenue + it's so fun to get creative with the window decor to celebrate holidays + seasons. 

with valentines day approaching, i decided to make my own valentines-y flower garland. it was fun + easy to make + turned out beautifully. here are some snaps of the process:
simple supplies: fresh flowers, twine, scissors

we began with an early morning trip to the LA flower mart. while pink roses felt appropriate, i'm partial to wild floral arrangements...so i balanced the sweetness of the roses with earthy additions. the inherent rawness of eucalyptus was a nice accent + i used wild/cabbagey roses.  

the size of my window called for about 12 small hanging bouquets + i made each one a little different to create a naturally gathered vibe. i strung the 12 boquets together with raw twine + looped either end on a small nail. the left over flowers have become our february gift wrap for the shop.

this little project has brought us so much inspiration. i'll definitely revisit this technique as i party plan with my bride-to-be friends in the coming months. i hope you enjoy + find inspiration in it too!
