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!

  9. Both indoor and outdoor gardening should use a particular gardening idea. Growing different flowers, grasses, and big trees, like Loblolly Pine Tree, Creeping Phlox, ferns, Coneflower Plant, Wisteria Plant, etc., in the garden will be an astonishing work.

  10. While mail order nurseries can be a great resource for hard-to-find or specialty plants, they can also be overpriced and not always the best option for your garden. It's important to do your research before ordering from a mail order nursery, and to be aware of the potential pitfalls. Mail Order Nursery

  11. Wholesale nurseries provide trees that meet your needs, another incentive to choose them. You may buy trees ready to be planted in your garden as bare root trees, balled and burlapped trees (B&B), or even trees cultivated in containers. Mail order nursery

  12. Does the product need to be in an open box so that customers may touch and feel it or have access to pressing anything to hear a sound? Or maybe you don't want the goods to get soiled, so a closed box or shrink-wrap might be appropriate. BOPA film manufacturer/supplier
